Mystery Gifts have always been a part of Pokemon series. As the name suggests, these can get you anything from Candy, Perks, and even Rare Pokemon. To celebrate the launch of Pokemon: Scarlet and Violet, anyone that has pre-ordered the game (physical/digital) is eligible to get a free Mystery Gift containing a special Flying-type Pikachu. This version of Pikachu knows the ‘Fly’ move that the normal Electric-type Pikachu is unable to learn — this makes it one of its kind. In this guide, we have detailed everything there is to know about getting the Flying-type Pikachu from the Mystery Gifts in the newly released Pokemon: Scarlet and Violet.

In order to get your Flying-type Pikachu, you must progress through the game until you get access to a Pokemon Center which should unlock the new ‘Poke Portal’ feature. After it becomes available, return to the Main Menu and select the Poke Portal. From there, all that you need to do is to go to the Mystery Gift and select the ‘Get via Internet’ option. Once done, return to the game and you will find the Flying-type Pikachu in your party — or inside the PC Box if there is no space available. As mentioned before, you must have pre-ordered the game to get it.

Also, do note that you have until Feb. 28, 2023 to claim this Special Pikachu. As of this moment, there is no other way of acquiring the said Pokemon unless someone is kind enough to trade you one.

We will also continue to add more Mystery Gifts Codes in this guide as we come across them so that you can get your hands on other rewards that the GameFreak has to offer.

This is how you can get the Flying-type Pikachu in Pokemon: Scarlet and Violet. For more tips and strategies, you can see our detailed Pokemon: Scarlet and Violet wiki page.
