Dynamax Stonjourney and Eiscue

The Pokémon Company have announced that from March 27th, a Pokémon Collecting Guide (featuring various tips to help you complete your Pokédex) will be distributed at various stores across Japan (Geo, Tsutaya, Joshin). The Guide comes with a Serial Code to unlock Max Raid Battles featuring Stonjourney and Eiscue. Those two Pokémon are version exclusives, so that’s a pretty interesting event for players trying to complete their Pokédex.

The Guidebook will be distributed between March 27th and April 19th (while stocks last), and the Serial Code itself has to be used before April 30th.
