Get Genesect, Volcanion, and Marshadow this month
Update: We’ve included a few more retailers in the list below!
Generation IX might be on the horizon, but Pokémon Trainers across the world are still busy catching and battling ’em all in Pokémon Sword & Shield, and it looks like Europe, in particular, will need to head back to Galar again to get some new Pokémon added to their ‘dex.
Serebii has shared details of a brand new distribution event taking place across Europe. Starting tomorrow, 9th September, and ending on 30th September, Sword & Shield Trainers will be able to get codes for three Mythical Pokémon — Genesect, Volcanion, and Marshadow.
All three Pokémon can be acquired at various retail stores across the continent, and don’t worry, you won’t need three separate bits of paper, as all three codes will be given to you on one handy card!
Details are still being revealed as to where certain countries will be able to get their codes (thanks again, Serebii!), but we’ll list the retailers we know so far:
That’s three pretty rare Pokémon up for grabs, then! And even if you’re not playing Sword & Shield, these codes might well be worth picking up so you can load them onto your game anyway — and hopefully, we’ll be able to transfer these over to Scarlet & Violet.
Will you be picking up these codes? Let us know in the comments!

I just don’t understand these stupid limited physical cards are still a thing!
Why not just sent it as mystery gift inside the game. Here in Norway practically no store gets these cards anymore. Especially after Gamestop went bust in Europe.
I’m glad this event isn’t Japan exclusive anymore, though I am asking/begging to not let Ireland be shafted again please. There are literally zero GAME stores here in Ireland and if UK counts as both UK AND Ireland then I’m screwed. I just want a Marshadow man, IS THAT TOO MUCH TO ASK.
It is baffling how GF decides to still do those obsolete physical distribution events in the COVID era, it’s like they live in their own magical bubble. They are basically giving the middle finger to the rest of the countries that don’t have any available retailers…
Game still has branches? I think the vanished from Westfield and Kingston. Still in Ealing?
Would love the first two (already have Genesect), but going to Game seems a bit extreme.
Haven’t been in years and they were always clueless or offended when I asked.
@alexwolf definitely has to be a business decision. But the codes work across regions, maybe you could find someone else to hunt one down for you?
I have the Japanese ones so I wonder if I’ll even be able to redeem these?
Wonder if they’ll be a pre-order bonus for Scarlet & Violet, that would be a fairer way to distribute them.
What??? NOOOOO! For my living dex, I only need a Diancie and Marshadow. But I live in North America! Any word of a similar distribution over here?
Where Diamond and Pearl? Where is the Love ?
perhaps this will finally push me to buy and start the DLCs..
Dang. A kind samaritan recently parted with their Marshadow, and for that I am grateful.
It would be nice to have two more though.
All I’m missing now is the legendary monkey thing from this generation… Garude or whatever the hell its name is…
With shiny Zacian/Zamazenta there was an email option and even people in the states could use the codes…any word on a similar thing this time?
I’d have to go to game, to not buy anything, to get a code for a game I’m not currently playing, and only for one of those pokes that I actually like. Nah your alright
@Jeronan Maybe it’s changed since the last time, but here in Ireland I once asked a Gamestop clerk for a code for a Pokemon promotion they were supposed to be doing and they looked at me like I had two heads.
@Jeronan Well they tried to get rid of them with Pokémon Pass… but it just didn’t work. You’d go to the stores, try to use the app in multiple ones, and you’d walk out without nothing. No reason they can’t just be Mystery Gifts though.
No I won’t be bothering with these, especially now as Ireland is going through another COVID surge because of selfish people not doing the right thing.
1. Damm, I’ve been wanting these for ages!
2. Why Europe only!!! and an in-store distribution at that… Ideally if it gets to the rest of the world they can make it a "get via internet" giveaway.
Awes..oh yeah my local Hame close 2 months back 😔
why no us north America? it feels like nintendo doesnt care about there American buyers for there games just like when it comes to medabots its only a Europe/Japan game but never here in the americas and the only us thing there gonna do recent is the shiny. Eternatus that starts on On September the 18 and i dont have to worry about lots of people cause my Area were i live is ghetto so my gamestop barely gets people
Man, I really wanted Marshadow finally… And a modern Volacanion and Genesect would be nice too.
Aww… What about NA? I loved collecting these little cards when i was younger, getting this here would be such a nostalgia trip
@Dom_31 off topic, but your dugtrio/he-man picture is hilarious. had to do a double take
@Fizza come up to Belfast and make a day of it. We have a few stores here, not ideal but it’s something.
@riChchestM Dunno if it nationwide but in the town where I live and a couple of other places Game closed their store and is now inside at the back of Sport & Soccer.
Got Mine! Game In Leicester (Sports Direct). One minute, Tops!
Perfect. Very Happy.
They really need to take a page out of Monster Hunter’s book. Where you can access and download the complete backlog of events that get released worldwide. The limited time codes are getting really old and annoying.
Hey guys Please, people, does anyone know if it will be in the Czech Republic as well, because I like pokemon a lot and I’m looking for this trio quite a lot
has this been released in the US yet? I’ve been wanting a Marshadow
I went into Game at the weekend and the guy behind the counter said "I don’t know where this was leaked but we’ve not heard anything about it" 🙁
Got my codes yesterday. I shall redeem them this evening
Isn’t this only the 2nd time Marshadow has been distributed?
