This is a reverse-chronological list of event Pokémon distributions that were given away via serial codes to Pokémon games in Generation VIII.

Unlike serial codes in the previous games, serial code events in these games are region-free and can be used regardless of the game or console's region or language, provided the player is connected to the internet and uses a legitimate serial code. An active subscription to Nintendo Switch Online is not required to claim Mystery Gifts on Nintendo Switch games.

List of event Pokémon

Pikachu in a cap

All Pikachu in a cap will be distributed via universal serial codes through the offical Pokémon website. All codes expire November 30, 2020, at 6:59 a.m. PST. Unlike previous distributions, these iterations of Ash's Pikachu all share the same moveset, and can learn Volt Tackle from the Move Reminder.

Jungle Pokémon

Promotional artwork of Zarude associated with the event

These Pokémon are being distributed to players who preordered tickets to the upcoming twenty-third movie, Koko. They include a Shiny Celebi and Zarude, both Pokémon that play important roles in the movie. Celebi's distribution was originally due to begin on April 17, 2020, and Zarude's on June 15, 2020; due to the delay of the movie's release, both distributions instead began August 7, and will be redeemable until March 31, 2021. Multiple redemptions of these Pokémon are allowed on a single game, provided the player has preordered multiple tickets, and consequently, has multiple serial codes.

Poké Ball Plus Mew

Initally released with Pokémon: Let's Go, Pikachu! and Let's Go, Eevee!, the Poké Ball Plus comes programmed with an internal serial code to redeem this Mew that is compatible with Pokémon Sword and Shield. Despite being marketed as the Poké Ball Plus "containing" Mew, the serial code aspect means that to claim, the player must connect to the Internet through Mystery Gifts.

The serial code aspect also means that it is impossible for a single manufactured Poké Ball Plus to redeem more than one Mew, even if the Poké Ball Plus is later resold. Players that purchased multiple Poké Ball Pluses can redeem one Mew for each.
