While most Pokémon are capable of growing in size and strength due to Dynamax, there’s a step beyond that which only a select group of Pokémon species are able to attain — Gigantamax!
The Gigantamax phenomenon causes the Pokémon to grow to insane sizes and even change some of its physical characteristics, somewhat similar to Mega Evolution from previous games.
Below are all of the revealed Gigantamax Pokémon. You can click any of them to find out more about them, learn about their G-Max Moves, see pictures, screenshots, etc.
Keep in mind that just because a Pokémon has a Gigantamax form doesn’t mean that any of that species can go Gigantamax instead of ordinary Dynamax — according to the press release: “Only certain species of Pokémon can Gigantamax—and even among such species, only rare specimens will be able to Gigantamax. The majority of Pokémon will keep their usual appearance when they Dynamax.”
Gigantamaxing also unlocks exclusive G-Max Moves that are dependent on the Pokémon’s species, similar to certain Z-Crystals from the Alola region. These G-Max Moves require the Pokémon to know a move of a certain type, similar to Max Moves from Dynamaxing.
