To celebrate the launch of Pokémon Sword & Shield's Isle of Armor expansion today, Sword & Shield players can take part in a new limited-time challenge event featuring the Mythical Pokémon Zeraora. Zeraora is now appearing as a Max Raid Battle boss, and if 1 million players around the globe can take down the Thunderclap Pokémon, players will be able to receive a Shiny Zeraora for use in Sword & Shield.

The challenge lasts from today, June 17 to June 28. In order to claim your Shiny Zeraora, you must have move a Pokémon between Pokémon Home and Pokémon Sword or Shield during the June 17 to June 28 window. The Shiny Zeraora will be gifted through the mobile version of Pokémon Home.

Pokémon Sword & Shield released last year and were the first all-new, mainline entries to appear on a home console. For more on Sword & Shield, check out our review. For more on The Isle of Armor expansion, which hits today, check out our in-depth preview.
