A guide on how Dynamax Adventures work.

How Dynamake Adventures Work

In a Dynamax Adventure players will form a team of four and then talk to the professor in front of the tunnel entrance. Players can either play with friends online or with computers. Once a team has been made it's time to choose a Pokémon. Players will borrow a single Pokémon to take with them. There will be 3 randomly selected Pokémon to choose from, and each Trainer will pick one. Once the Pokémon has been picked players will head into the den.

At the start, there will be an overview of what to expect to see in the den showing you the branches and the Pokémon at the end. While players can't see which Pokémon are coming up, the type of each Pokémon is visible.

Branches in Dynamax Adventures

In the den, there is a series of branches that can alter the path that is taken. The player and their team must agree on what path to take together. Once players encounter a Dynamax Pokémon, it's time for a Max Raid Battle, so players can battle and then catch the Pokémon. Once the Pokémon is caught, one member of the team can choose to swap the Pokémon they started with to the one that was caught. This can be helpful if a Pokémon is low on health or not as effective. Check out our Pokémon Type Calculator to figure out type weaknesses and strengths.

Each Dynamax Adventure will have 4 encounter, always ending with a strong Pokémon that has a chance to be a Legendary or Ultra Beast. Check out the full list of Pokémon that can be found in Dynamax Adventures.

Through the branches of the den, players can also encounter professors, hikers, and berry piles.

A professor will have an extra Pokémon that one trainer in the group can switch to, the hiker will give players a selection of some held items that can help in battle, and the pile of berries will give players the option of a berry for their Pokémon.

Once the last encounter in the den is finished players will see a summary of the Pokémon that were caught in the den. Players must choose ONE Pokémon that they wish to keep from the adventure. Along with the single Pokémon, players are also rewarded Dynite Ore.
