Pokemon fansite Serebii has listed three Pokemon Sword and Shield Mystery Gift codes that are being given out on the game’s official Japanese twitter. The account is currently hosting a takeover by “Ball Guy” — the enthusiastic mascot in the game with a Poke Ball for a head — and he’s put out tweets like this one which give away some free goodies!

Bear in mind that these particular codes are using numbers instead of letters in some places — read them carefully to ensure that you put them in correctly. These codes expire on January 15, 2020, so you probably should activate them before it’s too late!

Here are the codes that have been given out by Ball Guy so far and what you can get from them:


  • Fast Ball
  • Moon Ball
  • Level Ball


  • Heavy Ball
  • Lure Ball
  • Beast Ball


  • Love Ball
  • Friend Ball
  • Dream Ball
