Pokemon Sword & Shield Mystery Gift codes (January 2022)
Trainers across the globe were previously able to redeem shiny Zacian or Zamazenta Mystery Gift codes in November 2021 via a rolling release.
In January 2022, however, there are currently no Mystery Gift codes available to claim. This is likely because of the focus on the upcoming Pokemon Legends: Arceus.

Make sure to check back soon, as we’ll update this page whenever any new codes are released. All expired codes can be found below.
Trainers who participated in the Test Your Luck! Online Competition can access a free reward with a special Mystery Gift, rewarding 50 BP when claimed.
To redeem it, simply follow the below steps up until step 4, and instead select ‘Get Battle Stadium Rewards‘ to obtain your free Battle Points.
Claiming your Mystery Gifts in Pokemon is easy, but you won’t be able to do so until you complete the game’s first event in the Slumbering Weald, where you encounter Sword or Shield’s Legendary Pokemon for the first time.
Once you’ve done this, follow the steps below to claim your Mystery Gift:
- Load up Pokemon Sword or Shield.
- Open the game menu by pressing X, then select ‘Mystery Gift‘, with the pink present icon.
- Select the ‘Get A Mystery Gift‘ option.
- Choose which method you want to use to receive a gift. If you have a code, select the ‘Get With Code/Password‘ option.
- Collect your gifts and enjoy!
Once claimed, Pokemon will be added to your Party or your Pokemon Boxes if there’s no room. Fashion items can be found by visiting the fitting room of any in-game boutique, while Non-fashion items will appear in your Bag.
