What would be a new Pokémon game without exclusive Pokémon? It appears that fans who purchase the Pokémon Sword And Shield Double Pack will be able to get a pair of codes that will net you the Dynamax versions of Larvitar and Jangmo-o.
What these codes do is produce a special Dynamax Crystal that, when used in game, will trigger a special Max Raid Battle featuring these two Pokémon. For those not familiar with these two Pokémon, Larvitar hails from Generation II, in the heyday of Pokémon Gold/Silver/Crystal, whereas Jangmo-o is from Generation VII, a.k.a Pokémon Sun & Moon.
Of course, these codes are exclusives to each game, with the one for Dynamax Larvitar excluside to Pokémon Shield, while the one that spawns Dynamax Jangmo-o to be in Pokémon Sword. But if you’re getting both games for yourself, you’re effectively getting two really rare Pokémon that can only be typically found late in the game.
These two Pokémon are pretty sought out by Trainers in general, due to their powerful final evolutions. The Dark/Rock-type Tyranitar is the final evolution for Larvitar, and the Dragon/Fighting-type Kommo-o is Jangmo-o’s final form. For Pokémon metagamers, these two are certainly worthy additions to any competitive lineup.
Again, as a reminder, the Pokémon Sword And Shield Double Pack will come in a shiny Steelbook case, aside from Dynamax Larvitar and Dynamax Jangmo-o.
