Pokemon Scarlet and Violet arrive on Nintendo Switch this November, and as has become tradition at this point, the games will offer a special bonus for early adopters.
Everyone who picks up a copy of Scarlet or Violet before Feb. 28, 2023 will get a special Pikachu in their game. This Pikachu has two unique characteristics. First, it knows Fly, a move it normally cannot learn in the games. Second, it becomes a flying type when it Terastallizes.
Terastallizing is a new battle mechanic being introduced in Scarlet and Violet. Similar to Mega Evolution and Dynamaxing, it's a temporary transformation that Pokemon can undergo during battle, in this case taking on a crystalline form.
The bonus Pikachu will be distributed via Mystery Gift, an in-game function that unlocks approximately an hour into the adventure. You'll need to have internet access to use Mystery Gift.
There's also a second bonus for players who buy a digital copy of Scarlet or Violet. Purchase either title digitally before Feb. 28 and you'll get an in-game Adventure Set, which includes the following helpful items:
- 10 Potions
- 15 Full Heals
- 3 Revives
- 3 Ethers
- 1 Rare Candy
- 1 Nugget
