What are Mystery Gifts

Mystery Gift.jpg

Mystery Gifts can be items, Pokemon, or more, that are free to receive and download in a limited period.

These are usually from events, and for the case of Pokemon, are not usually obtainable after the event, unless you get it from a trade.

Keep checking the news in the game, or stay updated on our site for the latest events and Mystery Gift Serial Codes!

Notes on Serial Codes

Mystery Gift Items and BP Only Available in Sword and Shield

One Mystery Gift Per Save Data

You can use a serial code to receive one Mystery Gift per save data. Once you use it, it cannot be used again. Be careful so that your gift transfer does not fail.

If you have one copy of Sword, and one copy of Shield, then you can receive the same gift twice.
