With Pokemon Sword and Shield's Isle of Armor expansion, it's important to note that the launch comes with another legendary event.
This time, Zeraora is up for grabs (in shiny form!) and you don't really have to do much to bag it. In fact, as long as a million players beat Zeraora in Max Raid Battles et you do a quick job with Pokemon Home, you'll take it for free. Note, however, that there are a few caveats.
As for the Pokemon Home requirement, here is the exact wording from the source:
Drop a Pokemon into Pokemon Home or move a Pokemon to Pokemon Sword or Pokemon Shield from Pokemon Home between Wednesday, June 17 at 8:00 a.m. PDT and Monday, July 6 at 16:59 p.m. PDT.
Literally all you have to do is wake up at home and use it just once to transfer anything: even if you've used it in the past, you'll need to start it by the July 6. trainers" who defeat Zeraora, you will return a piece of Armorite Ore to the game (which can be used to learn moves) if you actually participate. Here's another caveat: just because you find and fight Zeraora in a Raid Max battle (even if it's shiny!), you can't catch it at the moment, this honor is relegated to gift.
In short, whenever you can, starting this very evening, transfer something to pokemon home! I'm not your father, so I can't do it to you, but the sooner you do it, the sooner you can forget about it and enjoy the benefits of the free legendary.
