Pokemon Sword & Shield Freebies Expiring Soon [Last Chance]
You have until the end of the month to claim free Heal Balls, Battle Points, and TRs in the Switch Pokemon games.
Pokemon Sword and Shield's ongoing Max Raid events are coming to an end later today, but that's not all that's leaving the games soon. A few freebies for the titles are also set to expire at the end of the month, making this your last chance to grab them if you haven't already.
You have until March 30 to claim a few different free items, including 10 Heal Balls, 20 Battle Points, and a free Bottle Cap. The latter two in particular are worth grabbing; Battle Points are used to purchase competitive battling items from the Battle Tower in Wyndon, while Bottle Caps can be used to Hyper Train your Pokemon at the same facility.
On top of those freebies, you can claim three free TR94s until March 30. Like the TMs of old, TRs are single-use items that can teach Pokemon new attacks. TR94 in particular teaches High Horsepower, a strong Ground-type attack that's especially helpful during Max Raids. Unlike Earthquake, which damages every Pokemon standing on the field, High Horsepower only deals damage to the target.
To claim these free items, select Mystery Gift from your game's menu and choose the option to receive a gift with a code/password. Input the following download codes when prompted and you'll receive the corresponding items:
|G1GAGRANF1NALE||10 Heal Balls||March 30|
|SUPEREFF1CACE||20 Battle Points||March 30|
|C0MPET1T10N||1 Bottle Cap||March 30|
|PUNKR0CK||3 TR94 (High Horsepower)||March 30|
