A big day for Sword and Shield
There’s a double dose of content available for Pokemon Sword & Shield players today. First up is the new Wild Area Event, which has been changed to an Extra Event. During this time, Water-type Pokémon will be available, with Shiny Marill making a special appearance.
Along with that, Ranked Battle Series 12/Season 32 is now live. This ruleset returns to using two Restricted Pokémon and brings back Dynamax. This season will run from July 1st to July 31st 2022.
With this, the 31st Season of Pokémon Sword & Shield’s Ranked Battle has come to an end. This means rewards for participation in battles are now live. To get them, you need to check your ranking in the Ranked Battle mode and then go to Mystery Gift > Receive via Battle Stadium. These rewards include BP, and items range from Armorite Ore up to Bottle Caps.
