Last year, to commemorate the release of Pokemon Gold and Silver on 3DS Virtual Console, The Pokemon Company gave players who purchased either title a free gift: a download code for the Mythical Pokemon Celebi. If you've yet to pick up one of the classic games, you can still do so and receive the free code, but you only have until the end of this week.

The free Celebi code will be given out with a purchase of Pokemon Gold or Silver until this Friday, September 21. This offer only applies to the Gold and Silver versions; Pokemon Crystal, which released on the 3DS Eshop several months after the other two Gen 2 titles, doesn't come with a free code as you're able to catch Celebi in the game after completing the main adventure.

The Celebi code can be redeemed in either Pokemon Sun and Moon or the newer Ultra Sun and Ultra Moon versions. Regardless of which game you claim it in, the Mythical Grass/Psychic-type comes at level 30 and knows the moves Heal Bell, Safeguard, Ancient Power, and Future Sight.

Redeeming the Celebi code is a bit trickier than usual, as you'll first need to go into the 3DS Eshop, access your Account Activity, and look through your receipt for Pokemon Gold or Silver to find the code. You'll then need to input that via the Mystery Gift option in your Gen 7 game of choice. You can see exactly how to redeem the code here.

You have until October 31, 2018 to redeem your Celebi download code. There are many other free Pokemon up for grabs right now as well, including a Shiny Poipole and the twin Eon Pokemon Latios and Latias. You can also see everything available now in our roundup of all the free Pokemon for Ultra Sun and Ultra Moon.
