How to Get Free Shiny Grimmsnarl in Pokemon Scarlet and Violet

For a limited time, a bright pink Grimmsnarl with the exact same attributes, move sets, and held item as Chaiyawat Traiwichcha’s can be yours. Here’s how to get it:

  • Load up Pokemon Scarlet or Violet.
  • Open your main menu.
  • Select ‘Poke Portal.’
  • Select ‘Mystery Gift’ at the bottom of the menu.
  • Select ‘Get with Code/Password.’
  • Input the code: THA12022CHAMP

Grimmsnarl has defined itself in the competitive scene as the most reliable dual screens setter, enabling the heavy hitters on its team. And that’s precisely the role it played in Chaiyawat Traiwichcha’s team during the 2022 Pokemon Thailand Championships 2022.

Yep, it’s as easy as that! Once you’ve entered the code, you’ll get a bright golden animation, and the Dark-type Bulk Up Pokemon will join your team.

This Grimmsnarl will have the Prankster ability and the moves Thunder Wave, Spirit Break, Reflect, and Light Screen. But don’t sit on this code. You’ll only have until August 18 to redeem it before your chance is gone forever.

While Grimmsnarl might be great for PvP, don’t forget about the DLC for Pokemon Scarlet and Violet that will be happening later this year. There have already been quite a few hints about the unique Pokemon we’ll be able to encounter there. Check out the full list here: All New Known DLC Pokemon for Pokemon Scarlet and Violet.
