Bit confused at the moment:
The other day, I was trying to grind for Watts while looking for a specific Pokémon when I captured a Silicobra during a Max Raid that had its Hidden Ability (Sand Veil). This is a bit confusing to me since the Silicobra appeared in the Watchtower Ruins and most sites like Serebii don't list it as native to any of the dens in that section and said listings say the ability for base Pokémon that spawn from these dens are standard i.e. Ability 1 or 2, not their Hidden Ability.

How did this happen? I can provide pictures once I figure out why my Switch Lite isn't playing nice with the capture function.

I'm probably just missing something obvious, but I'm having the hardest time joining/getting people to join raids...
So I personally missed the fact that you have to CHOOSE TO GO ONLINE before it will start searching online for raids, and was searching only local for like the first hour. The default is local, you have to go into y-comm and press like + or something to do internet stuff. If you already knew this and are still having issues, yea matchmaking in general is pretty bad even when it works.

It's the Event Den, which can spawn anywhere if you're connected to the internet.

I feel like I read in here that you can get more beast balls through the battle tower, but I'm not seeing that through googling. Is it possible to get more Beast Balls? Or do you only get the single one in the game?

Not battle tower but from Champion Cup rematches.
