It’s been another exciting week for the Pokémon series, with new information about Pokémon Scarlet and Violet being revealed. We saw more new ‘mons, learned a little more about the new region of Paldea and learned that you can do the gyms in any order.
Before this new adventure releases later this year, Game Freak and The Pokémon Company will host another limited-time distribution event on their initial Switch release. Pokémon sword and shield. This a little different from the latter.
As Serebii.net highlights, trainers will be able to unlock Ash’s entire team of Drakovish, Dragonite, Gengar, Sirfetch’d, and Lucario. With codes that will be distributed starting August 12th.
There will also be a giveaway of “Pikachu with a Peace Cap” on August 11th.
While this event is planned for Japan, Serebii.net webmaster Joe Merrick has confirmed that the codes will work outside of that region. So we shouldn’t have any problem buying them back here in the west. Here is the schedule (note: each level 80):
Drakovish – 12 August.
Dragonite – August 26
Gengar – September 2
Sirfetchd – 9 September.
Lucario – September 16th
We’ll update this post when this distribution event goes live. Do you still play Sword and Shield regularly? Leave a comment below. And review all previous code distributions for Sword and Shield in our complete guide.
