It's cleanup time in the Galar region with several Pokémon that will be appearing more frequently in Max Raid Battles in Pokémon Sword and Pokémon Shield through September 5, 2021, at 4:59 p.m. PDT. These Pokémon include Altaria, Mow Rotom, Cinccino, and Wimpod. Very rarely, Shiny Cinccino can also be encountered.

To encounter these Pokémon in a Max Raid Battle, you'll need to connect your Nintendo Switch system to the internet through the Y-Comm or by selecting Mystery Gift in the X menu, then selecting Get the Wild Area News. After that, whenever you see a pillar of light shining from a Pokémon Den in the Wild Area, you can walk up to the Pokémon Den and interact with it to start a Max Raid Battle. This event does not affect the Pokémon encountered within Dynamax Adventures.

Now that's what I call a creative event. Though it would be better if it also had clean-themed rewards like Black Sludge, Silver Powder, etc.
