The second Pokemon Sword and Shield pre-expansion gift is a special Galarian Ponyta

0

From now until June 4

The Pokemon Sword and Shield pre-expansion tour continues, as we move out of week one and its special Mr. Mime and into week two with a unique Galarian Ponyta.

Available right now, the Galarian Ponyta has anticipation pre-loaded, meaning it'll detect whether or not an enemy Pokemon has a one-hit KO ability. Alongside of the creature you'll also net the following gifts: Level Ball, Love Ball, Fast Ball, Beast Ball, Friend Ball. To grab it, just head to the "Get via Internet" option in the Mystery Gift menu in Sword and Shield and you're good to go.

After you've done that, you can also partake in the new Gigantamax Meowth raid battles. These have run for three consecutive weeks, with the Meowth event lasting until 21:59 JST on June 2.

As a reminder, you can find the full schedule of free Pokemon Sword and Shield gifts below. The first expansion, Isle of Armor, is due "by the end of June."
