September 16, 2022: Grab Ash's Lucario with a new code set to expire at the end of the month. His Gengar is gone, but his Lucario has taken its place.

Typing in a could of Pokémon Sword and Shield codes into the ever-present Mystery Gift menu is a great way to get some cool and competitive-ready Pokémon for free. With the game still going strong as we learn more about Pokémon Scarlet and Violet, using the latest Mystery Gift codes will get you a bunch of powerful Pokémon you can take with you into the new games.

The Pokémon Sword and Shield Mystery Gift feature is nothing new. In fact, Pokémon games have used some version of the feature since the release of Gold and Silver, where players could hook the game up to their N64 console and even the handheld Pocket Pikachu device to score some freebies. Nowadays, it's all about Mystery Gift codes, and we've got a bunch below.

Right now, you can get Ash's Gengar if you redeem the above code before the middle of September. It's not going to hold its own against the Season 13 push of unrestricted mythicals, but it's still worth picking up.

How Do I Use Pokémon Sword and Shield Codes? - Mystery Gift Menu Location

Using any Pokémon Sword and Shield codes you come across is a relatively simple process. So long as you've obtained the Pokédex in-game, you should notice the Mystery Gift button on the game's main menu - just look for that inviting present button.

Once you're on there (and connected to the internet), just tap the Get with code/password option and type in any of the working Pokémon Sword and Shield codes above. Your reward will be dropped into your PC, bag, or party depending on the reward, and you'll be free to redeem another.

Another thing that's worth noting here is that the first Mystery Gift option "Get via Internet" is for event-specific items that don't require Pokémon Sword and Shield codes at all. These typically run during tournaments or other big events (like a movie premiere), but it doesn't hurt to check it once in a while to make sure you're not missing out on anything.

The other, 'via local communication' isn't for trading with friends, but for when Mystery Gift items are being distributed at in-person events. Not many of these tend to happen outside of Japan these days, but they used to be the primary method back before most Pokémon games had internet capabilities.

With the run-up to the Pokémon World Championships now fully underway, expect new Pokémon Sword and Shield codes to drop at each major event. You can keep track of those over at the Play! Pokémon events page. Until Pokémon Scarlet and Violet are released, codes will continue to release for Pokémon Sword and Shield instead.
