Pokemon Sword and Shield finally arrive on Nintendo Switch later this week, and The Pokemon Company is offering a few freebies for early adopters. Not only can you claim a Meowth capable of Gigantamaxing if you pick up a copy of either title by January 15, those in the US can also receive a free outfit for their trainers.
From November 16-25, you'll be able to claim a free download code for a track suit trainer outfit at a participating Walmart location. To get the code, you'll first need to download and install the Pokemon Pass app on your smartphone. Once you have the app, you'll need to head to a Walmart and use the app to scan a QR code that's on display at the store.
After you've gotten a download code, you'll need to follow the steps below to input that into your game and download the outfit:
- Launch your copy of Pokemon Sword or Shield
- Select Mystery Gift from the menu
- Select Get a Mystery Gift
- Select Get with Code/Password and follow the prompts to connect online
- Input your download code
- Visit the fitting room in a boutique to access the outfit
If you're eager to pick up Sword and Shield this weekend, you'll want to head to Walmart anyway, as the retailer is offering the games for $49.94 each on launch day. This promotion is in-store only, so if you want to take advantage of the deal, you can kill two birds with one stone and get the free download code as well. For more early deals and pre-order bonuses, be sure to check out our Pokemon Sword and Shield pre-order guide.
As previously mentioned, you can get a free Pokemon in Sword and Shield as well. If you purchase a game by January 15, you'll be able to receive a free Gigantamax-capable Meowth via Mystery Gift. If you have save data of either Let's Go Pikachu or Eevee on your Switch, you'll also receive a Gigantamax-capable Pikachu or Eevee within the games.
