'''Wild Area News''' is a feature in {{g|Sword and Shield}} that expands on the available [[Max Raid Battle]]s in the [[Wild Area]], making certain Pokémon more common for a limited time. It can be accessed via [[Mystery Gift]] or updated automatically by connecting to the internet in game. Wild Area News typically spawn different Max Raid Battles depending on the game version. Certain species of [[Gigantamax]] Pokémon, which are usually very rare, are often made more common through Wild Area News events. These events are also currently the only way to obtain Gigantamax {{p|Snorlax}}, Gigantamax {{p|Toxtricity}}, and most {{DL|List of Pokémon with form differences|Alcremie|forms}} of Gigantamax {{p|Alcremie}}. The event also allow players to have other options of obtaining certain Gigantamax Pokémon through another way such as Gigantamax {{p|Pikachu}}, Gigantamax {{p|Eevee}}, and Gigantamax {{p|Meowth}}. Additionally, during the Wild Area News events, certain Pokémon such as {{p|Mewtwo}} sometimes cannot be captured.
