Pokemon Sword and Shield players can catch select version exclusive Pokemon during the game’s Wild Arena event.
Both Pokemon Sword and Shield have Pokemon exclusive to each version, but during the Wild Arena event, you have a chance to catch exclusives such as Galarian Ponyta in Max Raid battles.
Galarian Ponyta is exclusive to Pokemon Shield, but Sword owners have the opportunity to catch the equine Pokemon. Sword exclusive Galarian Farfetch’d is also able to be caught in Shield.
Not all exclusives will be available during the event, but you can look over which ones can be caught through Serebii.
Max Raid battles will also be handing out rare rewards such as fossils during the event (thanks, Nintendo Life).
The Wild Arena event is live now and runs through March 25.
