Once again, Nintendo is giving people a chance to collect one of those Tetris 99 themes they might have missed. This time, it’s happening at an extremely appropriate time. One week before The Crown Tundra DLC arrives for Pokemon Sword and Shield, people will be able to earn the Pokemon Tetris 99 theme from October 2019 again between October 16-19, 2020.

Like all Tetris 99 themes, this one is pretty easy to earn. You just log in during the event, earn 100 points, and you then have the theme to use forever in your copy of the game. The theme is also in effect throughout the duration of the event. As usual, you need an active Nintendo Switch Online subscription to participate.
In case you didn’t see it back then, here’s what that Pokemon Tetris 99 theme looks like in action.
