What is the difference between Dynamax and Gigamax?

As per the table, the Dynamax will only do enlarge your Pokémon, replacing all the moves with their own version Dyna (each type has its own Dynamo).

In order to use them you will need the Dynamax cuff that will be given to you at the beginning of the adventure from Professor Flora.

To make your Pokèmon Dynamax stronger, you will have to use the Dynamax candies, which will increase theirs Dynamax level, guaranteeing more PS in battle.

I Dynamax e Gigamax they can only be used in certain areas and the effect will only last three shifts, after which, your Pokémon will return to normal.

Instead i Gigamax are a more complex version of the Dynamax: in fact only details Pokémon will be able to take advantage of this new "evolution".

In order to understand if your Pokémon can Gigamaxizzarsi, you just need to see in the Pokémon card if it is present an X next to the name.
