Pokemon Sword & Shield fans have another chance to get a Shiny Eternatus thanks to a free online giveaway. Unlike the previous events, these can be obtained online in certain parts of the world.

Pokemon Sword & Shield fans are currently making the most of every special giveaway before the games are retired later in November. Legendary and Mythical codes have recently been handed out at game stores in several countries, offering Marshadow, Genesect, and Volcanion, as well as Shiny Eternatus.

While the Pokemon haven’t been confirmed as transferable to the upcoming Gen 9 Scarlet & Violet games, having each special Mythical and Legendary in Sword & Shield is a special treat – and they can still be used in standard play or in Wild Area Max Raid battles for a powerful combat boost.
