Unknown to some trainers, you can actually enter free promos codes for Pokemon Go that will give you free items.
While these aren’t common, Niantic sometimes share them on their Twitter account. The Niantic website says the following: “Niantic offers a limited supply of one-time use codes in conjunction with special events or sponsored partnerships.”

How to enter promo code via Pokemon Go app
Finding where to enter the code isn’t as easy as you’d think, at least for some trainers. If you’re using an Android mobile device then it is simple, though.
Open the Pokemon Go app, tap the menu button (the PokeBall icon), tap Shop and then swipe to the bottom. There you’ll find a space to enter the code and get your items.
You can enter Pokemon Go promo codes on Android devices but not on iOS.
Unfortunately iOS doesn’t have this option. That means iPhone users will need to redeem any codes through a web browser.
How to enter promo code via web browser
To do so you’ll first need to visit the official Niantic Offer Redemption website. You’ll be given three options to login with – Google, Facebook or Niantic Kids.
Pokemon Trainer Club isn’t one of the ways you can login to redeem a Pokemon Go promo code. You’ll need to sign in with Google, Facebook, or Niantic Kids.
The credentials will be the same as the ones you use to login to the Pokemon Go app. The next page to load will allow you to enter the promo code and, if accepted, a message will display telling you the items have been added to your inventory.
However, there isn’t an option to login with Pokemon Trainer Club. This means iPhone users who only have a Pokemon Trainer Club credential aren’t currently able to redeem any codes.
Fortunately you can link your Pokemon Go account with Google and Facebook and resolve this problem. It is recommended you do so too. If you were to get lose your login or get hacked, both options have two-factor authentication for security.
The Swords of Justice – Cobalion, Terrakion and Virizion – can be found in the Pokemon Sword and Shield Crown Tundra DLC. Unbeknown to some trainers, the Mythical Pokemon Keldeo can also be encountered.
Once they do appear and you click on them it will trigger a cutscene with Sonia, who hints that mysterious Pokemon will be showing up in the Crown Tundra – a la the Swords of Justice.
From there you’ll need to find 50 of Virizion’s footprints, as each of them count for 2% of the data required to track it. Once you find all 50 of them go to Sonia’s house in Freezington, talk to her and she’ll tell you exactly where to find Virizion.
That location is in Giant’s Bed and will always be in the exact spot as the picture shows below. While it is fairly difficult to catch you don’t need to worry about failing to do so because even if you knock it out, you can go to a different town and it will spawn again.
The exact location you’ll find Virizion in Giant’s Bed in the Crown Tundra…
Terrakion is found in same way whereby you must acquire 50 of its footprints. The first of them is found just inside Lakeside Cave and the rest are close and easy to find.
Once you have all of them, you’ll need to go back to Sonia’s house where she’ll kindly let you know the Cavern Pokemon’s whereabouts. Those footprints where indicative of where Terrakion is because it can be found inside Lakeside Cave. Feel like we didn’t need Sonia for that one but you must go to her regardless.
Terrakion’s exact location in Lakeside Cave…
There aren’t any surprises for finding Cobalion, you’ll once again need to find 50 of its footprints and take them back to Sonia. The first of them are found in Three-Point Pass by the Frigid Sea with the last of them in the Roaring-Sea Caves.
Sonia will tell you Cobalion is residing in the Frigid Sea – surprise surprise. Specifically, there’s an island as you come to the sea. Head over to that, go to the peak of it and Cobalion can be found in the location shown below.
Cobalion’s location in the Crown Tundra…
How to catch Keldeo
Many trainers don’t know that Keldeo is actually the fourth member of the Swords of Justice. As a result it can be encountered in the Crown Tundra but Sonia, unlike the other three, doesn’t make this clear.
When you catch Cobalion you’ll need to head back to Sonia for a third time as Keldeo won’t spawn without doing so. Once you have done that, make your way to Dyna Tree Hill. This is the location where you will have found the Galarian Kanto birds before they decide to scatter away. Make sure each of Virizion, Terrakion and Cobalion are in your party (at least that’s what we did).
From there ride your aquatic bike into Ballimere Lake and head to the small island. Behind one of the trees you’ll find a cooking pot. Literally cook anything (no special recipes needed here), finishing eating it and Keldeo should be awaiting you in the middle of the island.
Keldeo can be found on an island inside Ballimere Lake…
It’s simple once you know how to do it but without instructions Keldeo would have been incredibly difficult to find. And that’s if you even knew it could be found!
It’s also worth noting that Virizion, Terrakion and Cobalion can all be shiny hunted. However, Keldeo cannot because it is Shiny locked.
