As announced on the Pokémon fanatic website Serebii, this target has been well and truly smashed.
Players should now start to see Zeraora sent out to them at the end of June.
There is one more thing players must to do be eligible for this special shiny. Regardless of whether you took part in the special Max Raid battle, you must transfer a Pokémon between Sword and Shield to Pokémon Home by Monday, July 6.
The Zeraora Max Raid is still ongoing at the moment so players can still get involved if you want to fight it.
Once you’ve transferred to or from Pokémon Home to the game, you’ll be able to claim the Shiny Zeraora between Monday June 29 and July 6.
The Max Raid is a good way to earn Armourite Ore, which is a new item introduced in Pokémon Isle of Armour DLC and it acts as a currency to pay for a new Move Tutor.
Elsewhere in Pokémon news, the very first MOBA-style Pokémon game is heading to Nintendo Switch and mobile very soon.
MOBAs (multiplayer online battle arena) are games which see two teams battling across a map, with each player having control over one character.
Pokémon Unite features gameplay extremely similar to Dota 2 and League of Legends whereby you control a Pokémon character in a team of five and you must gain points, level up and defeat an enemy team.
