how to redeem code card

Once you’ve picked up a free code card from Best Buy, you’ll need to fire up your copy of Pokemon Sword or Shield and follow these steps to receive your Dynamax crystals:

  1. to open mysterious gift from menu screen
  2. to select get a mystery gift
  3. to select get with code/password
  4. Connect online and enter code when prompted

Once you’ve got your Dynamax crystals in-game, you can use them to summon Gigantamax Pikachu and Gigantamax Eevee at the Watchtower Lair in the Wild Area. If you are able to defeat the Pokemon in battle, you will have a chance to catch them.

Gigantamax Pikachu and Gigantamax Eevee are usually hard to come by. Pokemon was originally only given as a bonus to Sword and Shield players who had saved data for Pokemon: Let’s Go, Pikachu and Let’s Go, Eevee on their Switch. After that, he appeared briefly in Battles of Max Raid as part of a limited-time event, making the Best Buy promotion a good opportunity to get him, if you’ve missed out before.

Pokémon Sword and Shield launched for the Nintendo Switch in November 2019 and have been a huge commercial success, selling over 20 million copies combined. More Pokémon games will be coming to the system in the next few months. Pokemon Brilliant Diamond and Shining Pearl launch on 19 November, while Pokemon Legends: Arceus Comes on January 28.
