Original story: It’s been another exciting week for the Pokémon series – with new information about Pokémon Scarlet and Violet revealed. We’ve seen more new stuff, found out a bit more about the new Paldea region, and discovered that you can tackle Gyms in any order.

Ahead of this new adventure launching later this year, Game Freak and The Pokémon Company will be hosting another limited-time giveaway event during their original Switch release. Pokémon Sword and Shield. It is slightly different from recent ones.

As Serebii.net points out, trainers will be able to unlock Ash’s entire squad – consisting of Dracovish, Dragonite, Gengar, Sirfetch’d, and Lucario. With codes to distribute from August 12th.

There will also be a distribution of a “World Cap Pikachu” on August 11 for Japan.

Although this event is scheduled for Japan, Serebii.net webmaster Joe Merrick has confirmed that the codes will work outside of this region. So we should have no problem buying them back here in the west. Here is the program (note: each is level 80):

Dracovish – August 12
Dragonite – August 26
Gengar – September 2
Sirfetch’d – September 9
Lucario – September 16

We’ll update this post when this giveaway event goes live. Do you still play Sword and Shield regularly? Leave a comment below. And check out all the previous code distributions for Sword and Shield in our comprehensive guide.
