If you're wondering how to get some incredibly dope Mystery Gifts in Pokemon Sword and Shield, well, then this is the right time of the year to do it. It's Christmas after all, so what better way to celebrate than with some presents under the Pokemon tree? Don't worry if you haven't already got a Secret Santa lined up: we have some Pokemon Sword and Sword Mystery Gift codes to hand out.

Pokemon Sword and Shield Mystery Gift Codes

For those who aren't in the know, Mystery Gift codes are essentially like redeeming little vouchers. For every code that you pop in, you'll be able to get some kind of reward. We're talking Poke Balls here, and you're going to get some cool rare varieties that aren't as easy to get in-game without shelling out in some way, shape or form. We've listed off the Mystery Gift codes below that we're aware of, along with what each code will give you:

  • Beast Ball, Heavy Ball, Lure Ball - 1YAHAYA
  • Dream Ball, Friend Ball, Love Ball - 0KUGAFUKA1B0RU
  • Fast Ball, Level Ball, Moon Ball - K0UN1NMASC0T

If you aren't sure how to redeem these Mystery Gift codes, you just have to open your usual menu and navigate to the Mystery Gift option before selecting that and making sure that instead of picking "Get via Local Communication" or "Get via Internet" that you pick "Get with Code/Password."

The rare balls are a real sight, and some of them actually make your journey to catching them all a little bit tougher. Yes, Beast Ball, we're looking at you (and we have a guide about how to get more if you wish). Others, like the Moon and the Lure Ball, work better on Pokemon that you encounter under different conditions or Pokemon that have special requirements for evolution. We recommend that you give all of your gifts a crack!

Now that you've got some Pokemon Sword and Shield Mystery Gift codes to get you started, it's time to ensure that the holiday spirit is kept alive. Need a hand with anything else in the Galar region? Check out these other tips and tricks that we've put together:
