Pokemon Sword and Shield players will soon be able to pick Ash’s champion team directly from the Pokemon anime via weekly codes.
As an article about Japan Pokemon Official Site (opens in new tab)from August 12th to September 16th, players watching the current season of Pokemon Animation – Pokemon Journeys: The Series – will see an exclusive code on the screen that can be used to claim all Pokemon in Team Ash Pokémon Sword and Shield.
This weekly event will give Pokemon Sword and Shield players access to all five Pokemon from Ash’s Pokemon Journeys team, which includes Dracovish (August 12), Dragonite (August 26), Gengar (September 2) , Sirfetch’d (September 9) and Lucario (September 16). However, don’t think you can only watch one episode and keep using the same code, as the site also says that every Pokemon will change the code every week.
Like all giveaways, this giveaway does come with some terms and conditions. First, each password can only be used once per save data. Not only that, but each code can only receive one Pokemon (meaning you can’t claim multiple Gengars with just one code).
You also cannot use these codes to claim Pokemon through Pokemon Home or any other game in the series. To participate, you need to be connected to an internet source and your Nintendo Switch must be connected to a Nintendo Account. Finally, if you miss each Pokemon’s weekly deadline, you can’t claim it outside of the given date.
