The first Hisuian form from Pokemon Legends Arceus is finally available in Pokemon Scarlet & Violet, and here is how you can obtain the early pre-order bonus.

Despite being the last mainline game to release before Pokemon Scarlet & Violet, none of the Hisuian forms introduced in Pokemon Legends Arceus made it into the Gen 9 base game. This was a bit perplexing as they could be found in the game’s code but couldn’t be obtained legitimately.

That is until now. On February 27, a Pokemon Presents revealed two waves of DLC heading for Pokemon Scarlet & Violet, but they won’t release until later this year. Luckily, there are a few goodies that come along with the DLC that early purchasers can access right away.

The first is four uniform sets that allow players to change their outfits for the first time since the games were released. And the second is a one-time redeemable code for a Hisuian Zoroark.
