Can we Gigantamax Alolan Meowth so we get Tacgnol too?

This month's Pokémon Sword and Shield update has brought Gigantamax forms to some classic Pokémon.

The following Pokémon will get big:

  • Pikachu's Gigantamax form has the new G-Max move Volt Crash which paralyzes all opponents
  • Eevee's Cuddle causes mass attraction provided the Pokémon is of the opposite gender
  • Charizard's Wildfire causes four turns of damage to all non-Fire type Pokémon after the round
  • Butterfree's Befuddle can cause multiple status effects (poison, paralysis, or sleep)
  • Meowth's Gold Rush confuses all opponents and gives an ingame cash bonus

Meowth will be the traditional launch incentive, as it will be available for download until January 15. It will be possible to get a Pikachu or Eevee by using save data from the respective Let's Go game.
