From September 18 to October 1, 2022
In the near future, you may be required to go to an actual store if you want to get in on a shiny Eternatus and event.
Following a teaser about how this might happen in some regions, information on the distribution event is now available on the official Pokemon site.
All the details on the Pokemon shiny Eternatus distribution:
- Its located at GameStop (in the US and Canada) or EB Games (in Australia and New Zealand)
- As per usual you dont need to buy anything, and the code will be distributed by way of a card
- The event runs from September 18 through October 1
- The Eternatus youll get from the event is level 100, with timid nature and the pressure ability (move-wise it sports dynamax cannon, eternabeam, sludge bomb, and flamethrower)
Nintendo also reveals re-affirmated instructions on mystery gift redemption:
Follow these steps to claim your in-game gift.
Although traveling to the store is a pretty straightforward process, it''s not to go shopping! At least this event is for a shiny legendary, rather than a quirky character from the anime.
[Update: EB Games Australia has clarified that the offer will be available in the region, albeit in early October.]
