This is a reverse-chronological list of event Pokémon distributions that were given away via the Local Communication mystery gift function to Generation VIII games. These event Pokémon are only distributed to Pokémon Sword and Shield as both Pokémon Brilliant Diamond and Shining Pearl and Pokémon Legends: Arceus lack the ability to receive a mystery gift via local communication.
