After redeeming the code, players will receive a Dynamax Crystal in-game via the Mystery Gift system. Similar to past Pokemon Sword & Shield retail promotions, players can then use the Dynamax Crystal at the Watchtower Lair to challenge the Gigantamax Pikachu or Eevee in battle. Other players can also choose to join the fight, or you can decide to start the battle with NPC companions. Once defeated, all battle participants will have a chance to capture the Pokemon.

The Gigantamax Pikachu will reportedly come with the Lighting Rod hidden ability, as well as the moves Celebrate, Double Team, Thunder Bolt, and Wish. Gigantamax Eevee, however, will come with the Anticipation hidden ability, and the moves Celebrate, Wish, Double Edge, and Swift.

Originally, the Gigantamax Pikachu and Eevee were only available to those who also played Pokemon: Let’s Go, Pikachu! and Let’s Go, Eevee! The Gigantamax Pikachu was later made available through Max Raid events, with some running only for a limited time. Similarly, Gigantamax Eevee also appeared in a Max Raid alongside Meowth back in May 2020.

Pokemon Sword and Shield are immediately available on the Nintendo Switch. The Gigantamax Pikachu and Eevee free code promotion will run at Best Buy from October 10 to October 24, 2021.
