    Hiya!

    So uh... I made a mod for Pokemon Sword and Shield that changes the Max Raid Battle trainers to be Gym Leaders, Rivals, the Champion and a couple of spoiler characters.

    They also have improved AI compared to normal Max Raid Battle trainers. Not all Raid trainers have been replaced, but the unchanged ones now all carry a Focus Sash so they can withstand an attack.

    You'll probably want to install this after you beat the game, there's a couple of spoilers in this mod since for consistency, the characters are all as they appear after you beat the main game.

    Download it here!

    To install, place the contents of the zip file in the /atmosphere/titles/ folder on your SD card.

    Only Atmosphere is supported if you need help. (simply because I don't use any other CFW nor do I know a rats ass about Switch emulation. If you can get it to work, great.)

    Images are below.

    Warning: Spoilers inside!

    Awesome! Can't wait to try it. Vanilla is really too easy and not balanced.

    Awesome TY. Do you have any interest in messing with battle tower trainers?

    “This seems cool, but it also disables random battles, which is not good at all. Be careful when using this if you want to encounter Pokémon you can't see in the overworld.”

    Saw this as a comment on the mod page. Is this true? I would like to use this mod but don’t want to lose random encounters.

    It seems like it's true, me and my friend have been wondering what has been going on (we wanted an applin and that's the only way he appears). Your comment just illuminated things.

    Fixed.

    Before updating, remove the 01008DB008C2C000 and 0100ABF008968000 folders from the /atmosphere/titles folder on your microSD, otherwise it won't work.

    Tl;dr - pkNX has no stable swsh support yet, this shit happens.

    Okay so there was a stray file left in that was essentially a corrupt encounters table (this is a known bug, encounter tables don't work properly rn in pkNX), which apparently got saved even though according to pkNX, it only saves if you tell it to. Guess it didn't this time.

    Fixed it just now.

    Thanks for the update; encounters are no longer broken. I've been using this, and now offline raid battles no longer come with so much dead weight. Thanks.

    Amazing mod!

    I have a question: is it possible for sword players to have shield exclusive gym leaders as raid partners?

    Also, could you please add Marnie gym leader version as a partner as well ? I think some people prefer that version too haha

    Also Hop's signature should be Gigantamaxed Corviknight no?

    Yes, that is already the case.

    I considered doing it but her non-championship rematch uses her normal version, so I went with that.

    I wasn't sure. I went with his Wooloos second stage because the only other Pokemon he dynamaxes to my knowledge is his starter and the cover legendary.

    That said, I just checked serebii and it seems you're correct. I'll fix that later today.

    Does Marnie non-gym leader form use Gigantamax Grimmsnarl?
