Even though Pokemon Brilliant Diamond and Shining Pearl are the latest entries in the series to get released on Nintendo Switch, the Pokemon Company and Game Freak haven’t forgotten Pokemon Sword and Shield and all those players who, despite the release of the new remakes, continue to play them.
As is now tradition, a new Winter-themed event has been launched in Pokemon Sword and Shield, allowing players to get, among other Pokemon, a shiny Delibird for a limited time. Here’s how to get it.
How to Get Shiny Delibird in Pokemon Sword and Shield Event
The new Pokemon Sword and Shield event, which will last until December 26, 2021, at 3:59 p.m. PST, make Starmie, Delibird, and Cryogonal easier to get, as they will appear more often in Max Raid dens across the Wild Area, Isle of Armor and Crown Tundra. During the event, you will also get the chance of getting a Shiny Delibird, who will appear only in five-star raids. Chances of this Pokemon appearing are low, however, so you will need to check raids often.
To encounter these Pokemon in a Max Raid battle, you will need to connect your console to the internet via the Y-Comm or select Mystery Gift in the X menu, and then select Get the Wild Area News. After this is done, approach the pillar of light coming from a Pokemon Den and interact with it to start a Max Raid Battle.
