Pokemon Sword and Shield brought upon a feature called Gigantamax. It is a variation of Dynamax, which allows the Pokemon to grow in size. Gigantamax is only available to a couple of Pokemon, and they can be caught in some areas where Pokemon Dens exist. That’s why we’ll present a list of Gigantamax Locations so that you can catch the Pokemon with the Gigantamax that you want.
Keep in mind that these Pokemon Dens will not always spawn a Pokemon. It all depends on spawn rates and other things. If you want to get some, be alert and attentive to any Gigantamax events where the spawn rates will increase.
Good luck when it comes to catching these Pokemon and more. Plus, Pokemon that have Gigantamax will have a G-Max move that can be used.

Now that you have an idea of the different Gigantamax locations in Sword and Shield, why don’t you start hunting them? Granted, the encounter rates are low; that’s part of the allure and challenge if you finally catch one or all of them.
Catching all of them can be tricky since some are limited until Nintendo decides to release them. Perhaps in the future, Nintendo will continue supporting this game, releasing future DLCs.
Those DLCs could contain more Gigantamax forms if they want to. We’ll update the list if that ever happens. But as of now, that doesn’t seem to be the case which isn’t that bad.
