Mystery Gifts have become a staple of the Pokémon mainline series of games, and they make their return in Pokémon Sword and Shield.
Anyone who ordered the double-pack version of Pokémon Sword and Shield will be familiar with the process, having used a code to unlock a Max Raid Battle with either Larvitar or Jangmo-o.
Now, when the game makes an announcement through the News section of the Nintendo Switch, the article often features a Mystery Gift code at the bottom.
Thanks to Reddit user ramrommer, all of the current Mystery Gift codes have been compiled into one helpful list. At the time of writing, all of the Mystery Gift codes still worked, allowing players to get a selection of special Poké balls, a bottle cap, and BP.
How to get Pokémon Sword and Shield Mystery Gift codes
As it stands, there are nine Mystery Gift codes for players of both Pokémon Sword and Pokémon Shield to use. These are those codes:

To get any of these Mystery Gifts, you just need to go into the menu within the game (by pressing the X button) and then follow these steps:
- Go to the Mystery Gift icon along the bottom of the page.
- Select ‘Get a Mystery Gift’.
- Move down to pick ‘Get with Code/Password’.
- Enter the Mystery Gift code. It doesn’t matter if the code doesn’t fill all of the available space.
- You will then see an animation before you press through to select which Mystery Gift you wish to receive.
Once you’ve pressed on the item that you wish to receive, such as the set of Poké Balls or the bottle cap, the item will go into your Bag.
The nine Pokémon Sword and Shield Mystery Gift codes listed above are all functional as of 11 January.
