Free Shiny Pokemon For Let’s Go Pikachu And Eevee Available Next Week

The Pokemon Company regularly gives away free Pokemon for the series’ 3DS installments, but fans in the US will soon have their first chance to get some for Let’s Go Pikachu and Let’s Go Eevee. Beginning next Saturday, May 11, The Pokemon Company is distributing a free Shiny Pikachu and Shiny Eevee for the Switch games. Here’s how you can claim one.

The free Pokemon will be available around the country at Target stores. Once the event is underway, players will be able to head to a participating store and, using a new free phone app called Pokemon Pass (which is available to download now from Google Play and the App Store), scan a QR code to receive a download code for the free Pokemon. Those with a copy of Let’s Go Pikachu will receive a Shiny Eevee, while those with Let’s Go Eevee will get Shiny Pikachu.

Once you’ve claimed the download code, you’ll need to input it in the Switch titles to receive the Pokemon. To do this, first select Mystery Gift from the games’ main menu, then choose the option to receive your gift with a code/password. Input the download code you received and follow the remaining prompts to download your free Shiny Pokemon. You’ll then need to pick it up from the deliveryman waiting inside any Pokemon Center.

The free Shiny Pikachu and Eevee will be available until June 23, so if you’re hoping to add one to your collection, your best bet is to act quickly. In the meantime, you can still get a Shiny Meltan in the Let’s Go titles. The special Mythical Pokemon is appearing in Pokemon Go again until May 5, and if you capture one, you can transfer it to either of the Switch games. For more details, check out our guide on how to catch Shiny Meltan.

Let’s Go Pikachu and Eevee launched for Switch last November and have quickly become two of the console’s best-selling games, moving a combined 10 million copies worldwide. A new pair of Pokemon RPGs, Sword and Shield, are also on the way to Switch later this year and take players to a new region called Galar, which is home to an assortment of new and returning Pokemon.

Hey everyone, I'm Jonathan but people will know me as Jon... I enjoy hiking and exploring the outside world as well as getting to see fantastic views. It can bring you to the most beautiful places on earth and into contact with amazing plants and wildlife and can be done all year round which is why I enjoy it so much despite it being challenging sometimes due to the weather - it has allowed me to meet a lot of new people and experience things I wouldn't have before. I also find it relaxing and interesting. I also really enjoy blogging and sharing my experiences with similar people. Hopefully you will read mine. My company Adventures Gate displays my other hobby - gaming! I love collecting items to do with gaming and playing in general. I guess I am a bit of a geek when it comes to this. Adventures Gate now offer free postage options when you spend more than £20 (there may be a small additional charge for larger items). That`s free 1st class post in the UK and free airmail to Europe.
