Players will be able to use Pokémon from the Galarian Pokédex except for certain Mythical and Legendary Pokémon. Players will be able to Dynamax their Pokémon but since players will be more likely to encounter certain Gigantamax Pokémon than others until early January then there will be a list of Gigantamax Pokémon that can be used although this list will be updated with other Gigantamax Pokémon every few months in the Play!
