Pokemon Sword and Shield players can soon pick up Ash’s championship team directly from the Pokemon anime via weekly codes. As revealed in a blog post on the official Japanese Pokemon website (opens in new tab), from August 12 until September 16, players who tune into the current season of the Pokemon anime - Pokemon Journeys: The Series - will see an exclusive code on screen which can be used to claim all of the Pokemon in Ash’s team for Pokemon Sword and Shield.

This weekly event will give Pokemon Sword and Shield players access to all five of the Pokemon in Ash’s Pokemon Journeys team, this includes Dracovish (August 12), Dragonite (August 26), Gengar (September 2), Sirfetch’d (September 9), and Lucario (September 16).

Don’t think that you’ll be able to watch just one episode and keep using the same code, though, as the website also says that the password will change every week with each Pokemon.

Like all giveaways, this one does come with a few terms and conditions. First, each password can only be used once per save data.
