Gear up for Pokemon Sword & Shield Expansion Pass with special Mystery Gifts

The Pokemon Company has announced this afternoon that they will be gifting free Mystery Gifts for the next four weeks with one coming each week in Pokemon Sword & Shield. This move is to gear people up for the upcoming Expansion Pass for the popular Pokemon title on Nintendo Switch. The Expansion Pass is due to release by the end of June. Today, you can claim a Galarian Mr. Mime with the Hidden Ability Ice Body and a set of Poké Balls. Here’s all the details:

Gifts for the first week (Starting Thursday, May 21, at 5:00 p.m. PDT)

Get a Galarian Mr. Mime with the Hidden Ability Ice Body and a set of Poké Balls.

A Pokémon with the Ice Body Ability will heal 1/16 of its max HP at the end of each turn if it’s hailing during battle! The Ability will also protect the Pokémon from taking damage from hail.

You’ll also receive a Lure Ball, a Moon Ball, a Heavy Ball, and a Dream Ball!

Gifts for the second week (Starting Thursday, May 28, at 5:00 p.m. PDT)

Get a Galarian Ponyta with the Hidden Ability Anticipation and a set of Poké Balls.

When a Pokémon with the Anticipation Ability enters the battlefield, it will be able to tell whether the opponent has a move that would be super effective against it or a move that could be a one-hit KO, such as Horn Drill!

You’ll also receive a Level Ball, a Fast Ball, a Love Ball, a Friend Ball, and a Beast Ball!

Gifts for the third week (Starting Thursday, June 4, at 5:00 p.m. PDT)

Get a Galarian Corsola with the Hidden Ability Cursed Body and an Evolution Item Set.

If a Pokémon with the Cursed Body Ability is hit by a move that deals damage, Cursed Body has a 30 percent chance of disabling that move! This renders the move unusable for four turns.

What’s more, the Evolution Item Set will give you items you’ll need to evolve certain Pokémon. You’ll receive a Sweet Apple, a Tart Apple, a Chipped Pot, a Cracked Pot, a Sachet, and a Whipped Dream!

Gifts for the fourth week (Starting Thursday, June 11, at 5:00 p.m. PDT)

Get a Galarian Meowth with the Hidden Ability Unnerve and a load of Exp. Candies and Nuggets.

The Ability Unnerve makes opponents too nervous to eat Berries during battle!

You’ll also get 50 Big Nuggets, which you can sell for a lot of money at shops, and 100 Exp. Candies L to help you raise your Pokémon! Get ready for your adventure on the Isle of Armor!

  1. Currently 6 badges in to a “1 magikarp only” challenge run. Game’s still not particularly hard. They are *WAY* too generous with XP candy.

      1. Version-exclusive Pokemon that you can only get from random trades or specific trades via smartphone (since they removed GTS from the base game).

    1. The only unique thing about these pokemon is it can be difficult to get their hidden ability otherwise, but then none of these are particularly mind blowing hidden abilities. So no. Do yourself a favor and wait.

  2. I wish that galarian mr mime was mew, celebi, jirachi, keldeo, marshadow, zeraora, melmetal or zarude instead.
