Pokémon Adventure 25 items

These items were distributed to players in South Korea during the "Pokémon Adventure, Catch the Mythical Pokémon!" (포켓몬 어드벤처, 환상의 포켓몬을 잡아라!) campaign that ran from April 26 to September 30, 2021. Players could earn points by buying participating Pokémon merchandise, which could then be used to exchange for serial codes on the official website. This was similar to the "Mythical Pokémon Get Challenge" that had previously run in Japan in 2020, though it uses different Wonder Cards.

The number of points entered determined what type of serial code was received; one point resulted in a Genesect code, five resulted in a ten Dynite Ore code, ten resulted in a Poké Ball Set 1 (Fast Ball, Level Ball, and Love Ball) code, 13 resulted in a Volcanion code, 16 resulted in ten Dynite Ores code, 20 resulted in a Poké Ball Set 2 (Moon Ball, Heavy Ball, Friend Ball, and Lure Ball) code, 23 resulted in a Marshadow code, 27 resulted in a Poké Ball Set 3 (Safari Ball and Sport Ball) code, and 30 points resulted in a Master Ball code.

It should be noted that as with the Japanese event, the codes from the Dynite Ore were rewarded for turning in 5 and 16 scraps respectively, despite generating the same reward pull from different Wonder Cards. In practice, this meant that to receive 20 Dynite Ore, a player needed to redeem both a code from turning in 5 scraps and a code from turning in 16 scraps. It was not possible to redeem two codes from redeeming five scraps on the same save file. The same could be said about redeeming two codes from redeeming 16 scraps on the same save.

Pokémon Sword and Shield Double Pack Dynamax Crystals

These Dynamax Crystals, ★And15 and ★And458, were distributed via serial code to those who purchased the Pokémon Sword and Shield Double Pack, both standard and steelbook, which contained both games. The ★And15, grants one-day access to a Max Raid Battle with a Larvitar, while the ★And458, activated the chance to battle a Jangmo-o.

The codes do not have a known expiration date.
