Pokemon Sword & Shield Are Giving Players A Million Pokémon Dollars In Mystery Gift Event

The Wild Area is soon going to be filled with Trainers dressed in pimp outfits and Chanel dresses, as everyone with a copy of Pokemon Sword & Shield can now claim items worth a million Pokemon dollars. The Pokemon games generally give the player enough money to finish the main story, which can easily be acquired by defeating enemies.

Things get more expensive when the player reaches the post-game. In Pokemon Sword and Shield, it’s possible to buy items like HP Up and Iron in Wyndon, but they are all very expensive. The players who like to dress up their characters and want to own every outfit in the game will also need a lot of cash, as buying all of the clothing is an expensive prospect. There are ways to earn money quickly, such as using the Gigantamax Meowth trick to make millions, but this still takes time and effort on the part of the player to set up.


It’s time to put those big Gigantamax Meowths back into the Box where they belong, as there is now a much easier method for making money in Pokemon Sword and Shield. The Pokémon Company is currently running a series of Mystery Gift events in Pokemon Sword and Shield, which involve letting players download a Galarian Pokémon with a Hidden Ability, along with some rare items. The latest event started today and it will run until the release of The Isle of Armor DLC for Pokémon Sword and Shield on June 17. Anyone who claims the latest Mystery Gift will receive a Galarian Meowth and 50 Big Nuggets, which can be sold for a million Pokemon dollars in any store.

It’s not just extra cash that the player will receive by claiming these Mystery Gifts, as the player will also be given 100 Exp. Candies L. This means that the player can also distribute a million experience points among their Pokemon. The Exp. Candies will be especially useful to people who are trying to complete the Galar Pokédex, as it will be easy to quickly evolve Pokemon without needing to send them into battle.

Players have had plenty of time to accomplish everything they wanted to do in Pokemon Sword and Shield, whether that be finishing the story or creating a team for competitive battles. The extra cash will help players prepare for the expansions for Pokemon Sword and Shield, as fans will soon have a chance to explore more of the Galar region when the Isle of Armor expansion launches next week. The money will help people quickly buy all the new outfits that will be added in the expansion and keep them stocked up with more healing items than they will ever need.

The Galarian Meowth, 50 Big Nuggets, and 100 Exp. Candies L are now available to claim as Mystery Gifts in Pokemon Sword and Pokemon Shield.
