[Last Chance] Get A Free Mewtwo Right Now For Let's Go Pikachu And Eevee

Get a download code for the Legendary Psychic-type at Best Buy from November 4-14.


Pokemon Sword and Shield finally launch on Nintendo Switch later this week, but in the meantime, The Pokemon Company is giving away a few Legendary Pokemon for the series' most recent entries. In addition to the free Shiny Solgaleo and Shiny Lunala that were recently available for Pokemon Sun and Moon, the company is distributing a free Mewtwo in the US for last year's Switch Pokemon games, Let's Go Pikachu and Eevee--but you don't have much longer to claim it.

The Mewtwo distribution kicked off on November 4 and runs until November 14--the day before Pokemon Sword and Shield launch. To claim the Legendary, you'll first need to download the Pokemon Pass app on your phone and head to a participating Best Buy store, where you'll be able to scan a special QR code that will give you a download code for the Pokemon. If you can't find the QR code on display at the store, you can hit "skip this step" to simply receive the Mewtwo code without needing to scan the sign.

This free Mewtwo is fairly standard; it isn't Shiny and doesn't know any exclusive or rare moves. Still, since only one Mewtwo is available to catch in the Let's Go games, this is a good chance to add another one to your collection. The Pokemon comes at level 70 and knows the following four moves:

  • Amnesia
  • Psychic
  • Teleport
  • Recover

Once you've received a download code for the Mewtwo, you'll need to input the code via the Mystery Gift feature to download it. You can read more details about the distribution on the official Pokemon website.

As previously mentioned, players can also pick up a free Shiny Legendary Pokemon right now for the series' Gen 7 3DS games. That distribution runs until November 10. Those in the US can get the Legendaries by going to a participating GameStop store and scanning the special QR code that's on display using the Pokemon Pass app. You can see all the other free gifts still available for Ultra Sun and Ultra Moon in our roundup.

Pokemon Sword and Shield launch on Switch on November 15, and a few free Pokemon have already been announced for the games. If you have save data of Let's Go Pikachu or Eevee on your Switch, you'll be able to receive a free Pikachu or Eevee that's capable of Gigantamaxing. Everyone who picks up a copy of Sword or Shield by January 15, 2020 will also be able claim a free Meowth that's able to Gigantamax.
