It took awhile, but it's finally available!
Back on September 18th, 2022, Pokémon Sword and Shield trainers had the chance to head to GameStop to grab a Shiny Eternatus code from GameStop locations. Now our friends in Japan can finally grab that distribution as well. The code will be available at multiple game retailers until Oct. 21st, 2022, and no purchase is necessary to pick one up.
Shiny Eternatus will appear at Lv. 100 with a Timid Nature and the Pressure Ability. It’ll know the moves Dynamax Cannon, Eternabeam, Sludge Bomb, and Flamethrower. To claim your in-game gift, follow these steps:
- Launch your Pokémon Sword or Pokémon Shield
- Select Mystery Gift on the X menu.
- Select Get a Mystery Gift.
- Select Get with Code/Password to save your game and connect to the internet. Enter your code or password.
- Watch as the gift arrives in your game. (Pokémon will appear in your party or your Pokémon Boxes. Items will appear in your Bag.)
- Be sure to save your game.
