Pokemon Korea have distributed a code that grants players a free shiny Amoonguss in Pokemon Sword & Shield. Amoonguss is a Grass and Poison type Pokemon that was first introduced back in Generation 5.
To claim your free shiny Amoonguss, players need to turn on Pokemon Sword or Shield and go to the Mystery Gift section of the options menu. From there, select “Receive a gift via code” and then enter the code:
Once entered and received, the Pokemon will be waiting in your boxes. This Amoonguss matches the Amoonguss used by World Champion Senior Top 4 player Baik Jongyoon in the 2019 World Championships. It has the moves Clear Smog, Spore, Protect and Rage Powder and comes at Level 50. It has max IVs in every stat except Attack & Speed where it is 0. It also has Effort Values of 236 in HP and 116 in Defense and Special Defense. (Thanks Serebii for the information)
The code is available worldwide but has to be claimed by 14:59 UTC on August 10th, so act fast so you don’t miss out.
In addition to shiny Amoonguss, if players live in Japan, they can receive codes for shiny Celebi, as well as Zarude, if they buy tickets for Pokemon the Movie: Cuco. Unfortunately, this is only available in Japan, so unless players outside of Japan know anyone who can get them a spare code, or are willing to buy one, they will unfortunately have to miss out. It isn’t known yet whether a similar promotion will happen in other countries if the movie comes to theaters.
