Pokémon Sword will be automatically downloaded to your system upon completion of purchase and you will receive a download code on your receipt for Pokémon Shield. In total, you will receive the 3 codes below. Under the Notifications section of this page, please see How to download Pokémon Shield digital version and How to redeem the in-game codes for instructions on how to redeem each of these codes and How to use the Dynamax Crystals for help on putting the bonus Dynamax Crystals to use!
• 1 download code for the Pokémon Shield game
• 1 in-game code for 1 Dynamax Crystal “★And 15” to face Larvitar*
• 1 in-game code for 1 Dynamax Crystal “★And 458” to face Jangmo-o*
■About Dynamax Crystals
By using the Dynamax Crystals received via these codes, you’ll be able to face Dynamax Larvitar and Dynamax Jangmo-o in special Max Raid Battles*. These Pokémon normally can’t be encountered until later in the game!
Max Raid Battles are battles in which you can recruit up to three players** via local communication or the internet to face down powerful Dynamax Pokémon!
Every participant will get an opportunity to catch the Pokémon if you triumph in the battle! Additionally, with Dynamax Crystals, you’ll be able to attempt these Max Raid Battles as many times as it takes to win or until midnight on the day that the Dynamax Crystal was used, whichever comes first.*
■The Galar Region Awaits You!
Begin your adventure as a Pokémon Trainer by choosing one of three new partner Pokémon: Grookey, Scorbunny, or Sobble. Then embark on a journey in the new Galar region, where you’ll challenge the troublemakers of Team Yell, while unraveling the mystery behind the Legendary Pokémon Zacian and Zamazenta! Explore the Wild Area, a vast expanse of land where the player can freely control the camera. Team up with three other players locally or online** in the new multiplayer co-op Max Raid Battles* in which players will face off against gigantic and super-strong Pokémon known as Dynamax Pokémon.
Certain Pokémon can even Gigantamax to gain a new look and a powerful set of G-Max moves. But there’s more to being a champion than honing your battle skills: you can pick your own clothes and get a new hairdo while visiting the stores in town, so you can be the trainer you want to be. Throughout your journey, you’ll encounter newly discovered Pokémon as well as familiar ones that will look a little different in their new Galarian forms! For another way to level up your Pokémon, assign them Poké Jobs to complete, and for fun, you can even play with your Pokémon in Pokémon Camp!
