If there is one thing that we are sure many fans are looking forward to in Pokémon Legends: Arceus, it's Hisuian Growlithe and freebies. Players love freebies, and who doesn't love the new Growlithe and his adorable, rocky horn?

As if The Pokémon Company predicted that fans would go mad for Hisuian Growlithe, there's a Growlithe-themed cosmetic and a fox mask on offer for early players, too. However, many have been left wondering exactly how to get the Hisuian Growlithe Kimono and the Baneful Fox Mask in Pokémon Legends: Arceus.

While the Pokémon Twitter account touted the garms as a pre-order bonus, that's not quite the case. Getting your hands on them isn't too tricky, though, and we're here to help. Here's exactly how to get the Hisuian Growlithe Kimono and Baneful Fox Mask in Pokémon Legends: Arceus.

How to Get Growlithe Kimono and Baneful Fox Mask in Pokémon Legends: Arceus

Rather than being a pre-order bonus, the Hisuian Growlithe Kimono and Baneful Fox Mask cosmetics will be distributed online from January 28th 2022, until May 9th 2022. Any player who purchases, installs and plays the game during this time will be able to redeem the cosmetics and keep them forever.

The Hisuian Growlithe Kimono and Baneful Fox Mask will be distributed specifically using the Mystery Gift function, which you may be familiar with from previous Pokémon games. In order to claim a Mystery Gift in Pokémon Legends: Arceus, here's what you need to do:

  • Open Legends: Arceus Menu (your Satchel)
  • Scroll right a screen by pressing 'ZR'
  • Select 'Mystery Gift'
  • Select 'Get via Internet'

You will also need to be connected to the internet to receive any item or cosmetic via Mystery Gift, but you do not need a Nintendo Switch Online subscription. For more info on Mystery Gifts, including up-to-date codes for other freebies and rewards, head here.
