List of serial code event Pokémon distributions (Generation VIII)

Jump to navigationJump to search

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

Pokémon Center Birthday Happiny

This Happiny is to be distributed via serial code to players of all Pokémon Sword and Shield games at Pokémon Center stores across Japan and Singapore, if they visited during the month of their birthday, but only if they provided proof of their date of birth and Nintendo Switch. The codes will be distributed from November 1, 2021 to October 31, 2022. In addition, players can use these codes in Pokémon Brilliant Diamond, Shining Pearl, and Legends: Arceus after their respective launches. Each player only gets one code, and that code can only be used on one game.

Pokémon Adventure 25 Pokémon

These Pokémon were distributed to players in South Korea during the "Pokémon Adventure, Catch the Mythical Pokémon!" (Korean: 포켓몬 어드벤처, 환상의 포켓몬을 잡아라!) campaign that ran from April 26 to September 30, 2021.

Jungle Pokémon

Promotional artwork of Zarude associated with the event

These Pokémon were distributed to players who preordered tickets to the twenty-third movie, Secrets of the Jungle. They included a Shiny Celebi and a 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 on August 7 and were 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

Initially 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.
