Pokémon Scarlet and Violet officially launched the ninth generation of Pokémon. If you play one of the games now when they are released, you can get some extra rewards and mystery gifts in-game.
Pokémon Scarlet and Violet are finally officially available in stores and players around the world start their journey in the Paldea region. To ensure that the bag is filled with some handy items right from the start of the game, various rewards can be picked up. Whether you've pre-ordered the game or not... There is something for everyone.
We'll show you what these rewards are and how you can get them in the two new Pokémon editions. Don't be afraid of story spoilers.
Pokémon Scarlet And Violet: Redeem Rewards And Mystery Gifts
Mystery Gift – Flying Pikachu
If you think that a gifted Pikachu is really uncreative, we can only agree with you. But, it is a very special Pikachu: On the one hand, it has the Tera type "Flying", on the other hand, it also has the attack "Fly". You have until February 28 to get this special specimen into your team via a mystery gift. You don't even have to have pre-ordered the game, just play it until that date.
To unlock the special Pikachu, go to the menu in the game and select the "PokePortal" tab. You unlock this after the tutorial. There you click on "Mystery Gift", then on "Receive via Internet" and bang! The Pikachu is yours.
Special Rotom Phone Cases
If your Switch console already has the older Pokémon parts like Let's Go, Brilliant Diamond and Shining Pearl, Sword and Shield, or Legends Arceus, you can get unique phone cases for Scarlet And Violet. These differ from each other in color and design and are definitely nice to have. To get them, you simply have to talk to a woman at the entrance to Mesalona City.
Download Codes & Pre-Order Bonus
For example, if you downloaded the game from the Nintendo eShop, you should have received a download code with your order. If you redeem it in the game, you'll get the Adventure Set in return. It contains the following items:
- 10x Potion
- 5x Full Heal
- 3x Revive
- 3x Ether
- 1x Rare Candy
- 1x Nugget
It's not overwhelming, but it's a nice way to get started. If you chose a different way, for example ordering Pokémon Scarlet and Violet through Amazon, there may be other rewards waiting for you there.
