About Ash’s Gengar Mystery Gift

While Ash’s Dragonite is still available until September 8, 2022, the company has already begun distributing Ash’s Gengar, which will be available until September 15, 2022.

The Gengar arrives at level 80 knowing the moves Shadow Ball, Sludge Bomb, Dazzling Gleam, and Will-O-Wisp, which are the moves it currently knows in the anime.

While Gengar is readily available in the Galar Region, the moves Ash’s Gengar comes with are only available via TM’s — with the exception of Shadow Ball, of course.

We’re set to receive two more distribution codes for Ash’s partner Pokemon in the coming weeks, and we’ll be sure to update you when they release.
