Pokemon Sword and Shield is running another free mystery gift promotion

It’s good through today

There’s another Pokemon Sword and Shield gift afoot, and this one is celebrating the North American International Championships and participant Eric Rios.

Specifically, it gifts players a level 50 “sassy” Gastrodon, with the ability storm drain, the leftovers held item, and earth power, ice beam, yawn, and protect moves. You’ll be able to pick it up via the mystery gift menu with the code “ER1CSGASTR0D0N” throughout today, and note that as of this morning, it was still live. The code aired during the championship stream itself, as is customary with these types of championship-based codes.

As a reminder, here’s how to redeem Pokemon Sword and Shield mystery gifts:

  • Boot up the game and head to the main menu
  • Select mystery gift (the purple present icon)
  • Select “get a mystery gift”
  • Go to “get with code/password”
  • Enter the code above

For now, the momentum of Sword and Shield gift bonuses continues, though that will slow down later this year once Scarlet and Violet hit, and eventually, end altogether. Such is the flow of time when it comes to new generations: not to mention the off-kilter distribution schedule of spinoffs and re-releases. There’s generally a more interesting way that distributions could be done in Pokemon, and hopefully future generations will take advantage of things like more exciting unique distro opportunities.
