Trainers will have the chance to receive a handful of special items via the Mystery Gift function in Pokémon Legends: Arceus. As in previous Pokémon titles, players will need to connect to the internet in order to claim their rewards via Mystery Gift.
However, the option to connect to the internet is not immediately available upon starting the game. As a result, players will need to progress a bit into the game before they can get any rewards via the internet. Here are all the steps in order to redeem codes and receive items through Mystery Gift in Pokémon Legends: Arceus.
How to redeem Mystery Gift codes in Pokémon Legends: Arceus
The tab called “Communications” is listed as the third tab in the main menu and it is the final one that the player unlocks. This tab will become available upon defeating the Alpha Kricketune in Deertrack Heights to complete the fifth mission, “A Request from Mai.”
After returning to Jubilife Village, the player will be able to access the Communications tab and connect to the internet for the first time. From there, the player can click “Mystery Gifts” and access three separate options.
The first two, “Get via Internet” and “Get with Code/Password,” both allow the player to receive Mystery Gifts in Pokémon Legends: Arceus. Then, the third option, “Check Mystery Gifts,” allows the player to see what items they have already received via Mystery Gift.
What items are available via Mystery Gift?
Anyone who loads up the Communications tab in Pokémon Legends: Arceus can receive a special clothing Mystery Gift via the internet. This set includes a Fancy Kimono, Fancy Bottoms and a Baneful Fox Mask. The Fancy Kimono set is notably modeled after Hisuian Growlithe, while the Fox Mask is based on Hisuian Zorua.
Also, certain players can earn additional rewards based on how they ordered the game. Players who ordered the game digitally on the Nintendo eShop will receive an email with a code they can use to get 30 Heavy Balls. These Heavy Balls, along with the free clothing gift, will expire on May 9.
In addition, players in the United States or Japan who pre-ordered Pokémon Legends: Arceus on Amazon will receive a code for a Garchomp Kimono set. This code expires on May 16. The Garchomp Kimono set and the Heavy Balls can both be redeemed by clicking “Get with Code/Password” in the Mystery Gifts menu.
