Get Special Galarian Form Pokémon in Monthlong Pokemon Mystery Gift Promotion

Pokémon Sword & Shield Promotion

The Pokémon Company has announced a special promotion leading up to the June release of the first part of the Pokémon Sword & Shield Expansion Pass. This special promotion will present players with the opportunity to download a different Galarian Form Pokémon with a special ability and special items every Thursday through the middle of June. The promotion kicks off this week with a special Galarian Mr. Mime that comes with several rare Pokéballs.

To download the Pokémon as they come out each week you’ll need either a copy of Pokémon Sword or Shield for Nintendo Switch and an internet connection. To download just follow these easy steps:

    1. Start up your game and select “Mystery Gift” from the main menu.
    2. On the Mystery Gift sub-menu select “Get a Mystery Gift”.
    3. Next select “Get via Internet”.
    4. Once connected, you’ll see a list of all available Mystery Gifts.
    5. Select the gift you would like from the list.
    6. After you receive the gift your game will automatically save.

To make this deal even better, a Nintendo Online membership is not required in order to receive these limited-time gifts!

The Pokémon & gifts available each week are as follows:

    • May 21st: Galarian Mr. Mime with Ice Body Hidden Ability + Lure Ball, Moon Ball, Heavy Ball, and Dream Ball
    • May 28th: Galarian Ponyta with Anticipation Hidden Ability + Level Ball, Fast Ball, Love Ball, Friend Ball, and Beast Ball

The first of the expansion pass DLC is scheduled to drop sometime before the end of June (no date has been announced yet), but this is a nice bonus to help you get prepped for this extension to the Pokémon Sword & Shield adventure.
