Remember the red Gyarados at the Lake of Rage in Johto? If you were like me, this was probably your first exposure to shiny Pokemon. Since then, I’ve been a huge fan of the red Gyarados, but hadn’t been able to transfer mine from the Pokebank to Pokemon Sword yet.
Hey, Trainers! Have we got a deal just for you!
January 1–3, you’ll have an increased chance of finding Shiny Magikarp in Max Raid Battles! And it won’t cost you anything. 😉

Gyarados is an absolute powerhouse right now in Sword and Shield, and this is your best chance to pick a primo Magikarp. The raids offer an increased chancy of a shiny Magikarp. They also come packed full of Nuggets and Big Nuggets that can be sold for bundles of cash!
Act fast, as this event ends on 1/3/20!
