Distributions

The Pokémon Company have announced two distributions for Pokémon Sword and Shield at Pokémon Center stores across Japan:

  • a set of 5 types of Curry Ingredients + 1 bonus item, via Mystery Gift (1 set per day). You need to bring your own console and copy of the game (retail or digital, needs to be up to date). From November 15th and until an unspecified date;
  • a Serial Code for either Pikachu or Eevee. You get the Serial Code during your birthday month (only one per person, which means you cannot get both).
