Pokémon Center Otsukimi Clefairy

This Clefairy was distributed via serial code to players of all Generation VIII games at the Pokémon Centers in Japan from September 3 to 11, 2022 in commemoration of the Otsukimi festival in Japan. A pamphlet with three serial codes could be obtained during the distribution period, but in order to obtain it, the recipient must imitate the move Metronome. The codes are single-use; one of the codes on the pamphlet is valid for Sword and Shield, the second is for Brilliant Diamond and Shining Pearl, and the last is for Legends: Arceus. The codes expired on September 30, 2022.

A bug involving Clefairy's nickname occurs if the serial code is redeemed on a Korean language game. Clefairy's origin language will be set to Japanese, but it is set to have no nickname, causing the game to assign it Clefairy's species name in Korean. Since its origin language and nickname don't match typesets, Clefairy's nickname will display as "??" when redeemed in this language.

Due to a printing issue, the code cards only had the randomised 12 digit serial code and omitted the 4 character prefix. For the first Sword and Shield code the prefix J256 should be used before inputting the remaining 12 character code. The Second Brilliant Diamond and Shining Pearl code has the prefix J257. The third Legends: Arceus code's prefix is J258.

Jirawiwat Thitasiri's Clefairy

This Pokémon was distributed via password from June 18 until June 19, 2022 at 15:59 (UTC) in commemoration of the Pokémon Championships 2021-22 Singapore, based on the Shiny Clefairy used by Jirawiwat Thitasiri in the Pokémon Asia Players Cup 2021. The password was revealed on its official Pokémon Singapore Facebook page on June 18, 2022 at 5:00 (UTC) though it had already been guessed several hours earlier. This Clefairy has 31 IVs in every stat except for Attack where it has 0. as well as 252 EVs in HP and Defense as well as 4 in and Special Defense.

A bug involving Clefairy's nickname occurs if the serial code is redeemed on a Korean language game. Clefairy's origin language is set to English, but it is set to have no nickname, causing the game to assign it Clefairy's species name in Korean. Since its origin language and nickname don't match typesets, Clefairy's nickname will display as "??" when redeemed in this language.

Teresa Roca's Hisuian Growlithe

Two codes, one for 20 Feather Balls and another for a Hisuian Growlithe, were distributed to promote the Brilliant Stars set of the Pokémon TCG at various locations in select countries between February 25 and April 4, 2022. These codes expired at 06:59 (UTC) on June 1, 2022. If redeemed in an Asian language game (Japanese, Korean, Simplified Chinese or Traditional Chinese), this Hisuian Growlithe redeemed with English language tags instead.

A bug involving Growlithe's nickname occurs if the serial code is redeemed on a Korean, Traditional Chinese, or Simplified Chinese language game. Growlithe's origin language will be set to English, but it is set to have no nickname, causing the game to assign it Growlithe's species name in Korean/Traditional Chinese/Simplified Chinese. Since its origin language and nickname don't match typesets (English-language Pokémon cannot have Korean/Chinese nicknames), Growlithe's nickname will display as "??" when redeemed in Korean, and "???" when redeemed in Simplified or Traditional Chinese.

Promotional Artwork of Shiny Zamazenta by Hitoshi Ariga[2]
Promotional Artwork of Shiny Zacian by Hitoshi Ariga[2]
Japanese promo for Shiny Hero duo
Korean promo for Shiny Hero duo
North American promo for Shiny Hero duo

These Shiny Pokémon were distributed to players of various countries who inserted a serial code that was given away at various locations. Both have perfect 31 IVs in all stats except Special Attack, which is instead 30. These Pokémon were distributed between October 22, 2021 and February 22, 2022 with specific dates varying by region. Owing to the server-side Wonder Cards being accidentally repealed, it was not possible to redeem these Pokémon for four days between February 3 and 7, 2022.

In Western language games, Zacian has the Original Trainer of Lancer, whereas Zamazenta has the Original Trainer of Arthur. This is a reference to Arthurian Legends upon which both Pokémon are derived from, Namely King Arthur and Sir Lancelot. In Asian Language games, the original trainer is a localised form of "Galar".

Outside of South Korea, Players of Pokémon Sword can receive Shiny Zamazenta, while players of Pokémon Shield can receive Shiny Zacian. Codes obtained from the South Korean distribution can be redeemed in either game. It is possible to redeem both Zacian and Zamazenta on the same game. Each Pokémon is only obtainable once per save file regardless of code origin.

In Asia (Outside of South Korea), the codes were distributed from October 22 to November 18, 2021. The codes could be redeemed until November 25, 2021.

In South Korea, the codes were given away by pre-ordering Pokémon Brilliant Diamond and Shining Pearl, or the Double Pack of Brilliant Diamond and Shining Pearl. The codes could be redeemed from November 19 to December 31, 2021.

Pokémon Scrap 2020 artwork

These Pokémon were distributed to players who entered the codes from the "Mythical Pokémon Get Challenge" (Japanese: 幻のポケモンゲットチャレンジ) onto the official site in exchange for a serial code. Pokémon Scraps could be found in participating types of Pokémon merchandise starting on November 20, 2020.

The number of codes entered determined what type of serial code was received; one Pokémon Scrap resulted in a Genesect code, five resulted in a code for ten pieces of Dynite Ore, ten resulted in a code for Poké Ball Set 1 (consisting of a Fast Ball, a Level Ball, and a Love Ball), 13 resulted in a Volcanion code, 16 resulted in a code for ten pieces of Dynite Ore, 20 resulted in a code for Poké Ball Set 2 (consisting of a Moon Ball, a Heavy Ball, a Friend Ball, and a Lure Ball), 23 resulted in a Marshadow code, 27 resulted in a code for Poké Ball Set 3 (consisting of a Safari Ball and a Sport Ball), and 30 resulted in a Master Ball code. The serial codes could be redeemed from November 20, 2020 to April 30, 2021.

Singapore Pokémon Center Birthday Milcery

These Milcery were distributed via serial code to players of Pokémon Sword and Shield at the Pokémon Center store located in the fourth floor of the Jewel mall at Changi Airport from November 6, 2020 until October 31, 2021 if they visited during the month of their birthday, but only if they provided proof of their date of birth and Nintendo Switch.

As both Pokémon share the same Wonder Card ID, only one of the two Milcery (either holding a Ribbon Sweet or a Star Sweet) could be redeemed on a single save file.

Japan Pokémon Center Birthday Milcery

These Milcery were distributed via serial code to players of Pokémon Sword and Shield at Pokémon Center stores and Pokémon Stores in Japan from November 1, 2020 until October 31, 2021, if they visited during the month of their birthday, but only if they provided proof of their date of birth and Nintendo Switch.

As both Pokémon share the same Wonder Card ID, only one of the two Milcery (either holding a Ribbon Sweet or a Star Sweet) could be redeemed on a single save file.

Before November 6, 2020, the Wonder Card did not set a nickname for Milcery, causing a bug if the serial code is redeemed on a Korean, Traditional Chinese, or Simplified Chinese language game. Milcery's origin language would be set to Japanese, but since it had no nickname, the game would assign it Milcery's species name in Korean/Traditional Chinese/Simplified Chinese. Since its origin language and nickname did not match typesets (Japanese-language Pokémon cannot have Korean/Chinese nicknames), Milcery's nickname would display as "???" on the save file. This was fixed by replacing the Wonder Card with another version with the same ID, that directly set Milcery's nickname to マホミル (Milcery's species name in Japanese).

Ash's Pikachu in a cap

All Pikachu in a cap were distributed via passwords through the official Pokémon website. All of these passwords expired on 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.
