Dynamax

A Gigantamax Corviknight. - Scale reducted

Dynamax (or D-Max) is a temporary battle transformation that can affect every Pokémon (except for Zacian, Zamazenta and Eternatus) and can only be used once each battle.
This transformation has another special variant known as Gigantamax.

Pokémon cannot be Dynamaxed outside battle.


The Dynamax transformation triples the Pokémon size for 3 turns, multiplying its HP from 1.5x to 2x and unlocking unique powerful moves, known as Max Moves. If the user is defeated or switched out before the end of the 3 turns, the transformation is reverted abruptly.
- The boost on HP affects every Pokémon except Shedinja, and is completely dependant on the Pokémon Dynamax Level.
- The Max Moves are special moves that deal a different amount of damage depending on the type of the base moves the Pokémon knows; all Status moves become Max Guard when Dynamaxed.

You are only able to choose one between Dynamax and Mega Evolution, as it is not possible to equip both the Mega Bracelet and the Dynamax Band at the same time.
To Mega Evolve your Pokémon again you have to equip the Mega Bracelet from the Bag in the bottom-left of your Inventory.

How to Dynamax

Dynamax Icon

To gain access to Dynamax, a Trainer will have to obtain a Dynamax Band, an unique key item that can be later be equipped/unequipped from the Bag in the player's Inventory.

To unlock the Dynamax Band, the Trainer will have to right-click an Uncharged Dynamax Band while holding a Wishing Star in the inventory (the star will have a chance to fall from the sky only after 60% or more of the Pokédex has been completed).

Once unlocked, you will be able to Dynamax in any battle!
Click the Dynamax button (as shown on the right) in the Move selection menu to convert any move into its Max Move equivalent. Selecting one of them will start the Dynamax transformation sequence!


Note: If you still cannot Dynamax after obtaining the Dynamax Band, you will have to equip it by hand!
Open the Bag in the bottom-left of your Inventory to be able to choose between all the equippable items.

Gigantamax Gigantamaxicon.png

Gigantamax (or G-Max) is a special type of Dynamax tranformation that only some Pokémon have access to.
A Pokémon appearance will change significantly while Gigantamaxed, unlike regular Dynamaxing.
There are 32 species of Pokémon capable of Gigantamaxing.

To gain access to Gigantamax, a Pokémon must have the Gigantamax Factor Gigantamaxicon.png after its name. The G-Max Factor cannot be passed down through Breeding.
Having the Gigantamax Factor makes Eevee, Kantonian Meowth and Pikachu unable to evolve.


Gigantamaxing a Pokémon makes it gain any effect the Dynamax tranformation would grant, with the addiction of G-Max Moves, Pokémon-specific stronger moves with powerful secondary effects.

How to gain Gigantamax Factor

Wild Pokémon have a 1512 chance to spawn with the Gigantamax Factor. Once caught, the Pokémon will show the Gigantamaxicon.png icon after their name in both the HUD and Summary menu.

The Gigantamax Factor can also be gained by a Pokémon that doesn't have it by the use of a Grid Cooking Pot.pngCooking Pot:

Give it to your Pokémon to eat to let it gain the G-Max Factor!
(Only Gigantamaxable Pokémon can gain the Gigantamax Factor.)


Urshifu will need two extra steps to gain the G-Max Factor:


Note: Melmetal cannot gain the G-Max Factor via Max Soup, it can only be obtained randomly when summoned.
