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:
- Start up your game and select “Mystery Gift” from the main menu.
- On the Mystery Gift sub-menu select “Get a Mystery Gift”.
- Next select “Get via Internet”.
- Once connected, you’ll see a list of all available Mystery Gifts.
- Select the gift you would like from the list.
- 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
