Pokemon Sword and Shield: Get a Free Shiny Eternatus at GameStop

Visit the video game retailer to get a free code for the shiny legendary Pokemon.

Shiny Eternatus in Pokémon Sword and Shield
GameStop is giving away free codes for a shiny Eternatus through Oct. 1.
Pokemon Company

Pokemon Sword and Shield players can add another shiny legendary Pokemon to their collection right now by visiting GameStop.

For a limited time, GameStop stores across the US and Canada are giving out free download codes for a shiny Eternatus. This Pokemon is level 100 and knows the moves Dynamax Cannon, Eternabeam, Sludge Bomb and Flamethrower.

Once you've obtained a code from a participating store, fire up your copy of Pokemon Sword or Shield and follow these steps to redeem it:

1. Press X to open the menu.

2. Select Mystery Gift.

3. Select Get a Mystery Gift.

4. Select Get with Code/Password.

5. Input the code when prompted.

6. Save your game.

This promotion will only run until Oct. 1, so you'll need to visit a participating store before then to snag a code.

Later this fall, a brand-new pair of Pokemon games, Pokemon Scarlet and Violet, will launch for the Nintendo Switch. If you buy a copy before Feb. 28, you'll be able to receive a special bonus Pikachu in your game.
