Pokemon: Rare Freebies Available For A Limited Time In Ultra Sun And Moon
Five very rare Berries are up for grabs.
The Year of Legendary Pokemon may be over, but The Pokemon Company has another free gift for fans. For a limited time, anyone with a copy of Pokemon Sun and Moon or Ultra Sun and Ultra Moon can receive a bundle of Berries via Mystery Gift.
The bundle consists of five different types of Berries: Enigma, Micle, Custap, Jaboca, and Rowap. You'll receive 12 of each variety as part of the gift, which you can then equip to a Pokemon for use in battle or plant in Isle Aplenny of the Poke Pelago in order to grow more.
What makes these particular Berries special is that they can't otherwise be obtained in Sun and Moon or their Ultra counterparts, making this your first opportunity to get your hands on them in the seventh-generation titles. You can read about the effect each one has when it's equipped to a Pokemon below:
- Enigma Berry: Restores some HP after being hit by a super-effective attack
- Micle Berry: Raises accuracy one time when your Pokemon is in a pinch
- Custap Berry: Allows your Pokemon to move first one time when in a pinch
- Jaboca Berry: Opponent also takes damage when your Pokemon is hit with a physical attack
- Rowap Berry: Opponent also takes damage when your Pokemon is hit with a special attack
To claim the Berries, you'll first need to select Mystery Gift from your game's main menu. Choose the option to receive your gift via the internet, and the Berries will be downloaded into your game. You'll then need to pick them up from the deliveryman waiting inside any Pokemon Center. The gift will be available until September 2.
A new Pokemon RPG is slated to release for Nintendo Switch this year. Unlike Let's Go Pikachu and Let's Go Eevee, which were designed to be more welcoming to newer and younger players, The Pokemon Company says this year's title will be a "core" installment, although few details have been announced beyond that.
