Pokémon Sword/Shield continues to be referenced among Nintendo Switch gamers as the most cutting-edge game in the Pokémon saga, and as Trainers around the world prepare to travel down memory lane with Pokémon Legends: Arceus, Game Freak is rewarding the most loyal players to the 8th generation of the game with Shiny Pokémon .
Pokemon Sword/Shield offers shiny Pokemon to players in 2022
Although released over two years ago, Pokémon Sword/Shield continues to offer online events and rewards for loyal Trainers, despite the release of Pokémon Brilliant Diamond/Shinning Pearl and the imminent arrival of Pokémon Legends: Arceus on Nintendo Switches worldwide. Next coming gift for Pokémon trainers of the Galar region: three legendary Pokémon in their Shiny versions! And not the least since they are the mythical Legendary birds of the first generation in their Galar version: Artikodin, Zapdos and Moltres.
How to get them and add them to your Galar Pokédex? Simply, by participating in tournaments that you are, fortunately, not obliged to win.
Each of the three Shiny Legendary Pokémon, Galar Shiny Articuno, Galar Shiny Zapdos, and Galar Shiny Moltres, are offered to participants of the Pokémon Sword – Shield International Online Tournament in February, March, and April 2022.
To get the Legendary Shiny Pokémon for free, simply register for the tournament in the period preceding it and then play three matches during the tournament.
