Ah, so I'd need to go to customer services on the Pokémon site first, then?

Man, I really wish they would ditch this rubbish newsletter method of distribution and just stick with Mystery Gift. That works perfectly fine, and Sword/Shield knows if you've got Trainer club account anyway.

Yeah, I would if you haven't got the email.

I'm going through the same thing. xD They told me the best date to reply to the ticket asking for the codes in 10th October (if I don't receive the newsletter with the codes by then).

TBH after receiving the codes I'm going to try making an email account with a different provider and changing it on the Pokemon site just for future codes. Maybe that won't even work, but it's worth a try!

Yep, also got the codes in my e-mail today. So i’m finally 100% complete in my ‘all forms dex’ in Pokémon Home. 

I hope you’re all happy now, Vivillons, Deerlings, Pumpkaboos/Gourgeists, Sinisteas/Polteageists and especially you Alcremies!!!

I’m Reggie for BD/SP and Arceus now.

Have the Zarude codes been released now? Customer services said to reply to the support ticket if I didn't get the codes.

Got mine too. Pretty trash, though, as it didn't turn up in my 'Focused' Outlook inbox, so I only caught it by chance. I think I might have even missed out last time they did this. 

100% agree with @Glen-i, Mystery Gift was always the right way to do events like this (and especially during COVID times). It's just an altogether frustrating experience; just make it a timed WiFi event for a month/limited window and let that be that! 

PlayStation apparently runs a similar thing for some regions for some first party games, where if you get a Platinum trophy, you'll get a code through email to get a cool set of avatars, and back on PS4, a wallpaper. But I say apparently because I've never got one of these emails, and neither has anyone else that I've ever come across ::shrug:

So it seems that everyone apart from me got a code?

Well, that's just bloody typical!

Sent a complaint, let's see what happens.

@Glen-i I believe that I still have a Zarude code from the first giveaway, I'm pretty sure that I didn't redeem it, I don't know how the code redemption works being that this is the second giveaway, but you're more than welcome to have the code to see if it can be redeemed.

I think I offered the code in here the first time, but I think nearly everyone either managed to get one, or were still just playing the 'wait and see' game with the e-mails.

You get a Shiny Celebi as well, and the Zarude us different (it's based on the movie, which is available on Netflix btw).

I full odds shiny hunted mine and they just give one out

I already have the first Zarude. Thanks anyway.

And yeah, I need Zarude with Cape. Because capes are cool.

Your not a cool ape unless you're an ape with a cape.

Oh right, I didn't know it was a different Zarude from the first one, in that case, let's hope they sort the codes out soon. :smile:

Nice, hopefully they won't mind I registered with two diff email addresses since I have two saves. xD Anyone know if they have the Rusty Sword/Shield attached?

At least there's a good chance that this will bloody work then.

Given up on getting that Caped Zarude. I keep getting useless responses from the Pokémon Newsletter responses...

I had registered with two different e-mail accounts and got two e-mails with different codes. You can’t claim more than one legendary per save file though. So I have Zamazenta in my Sword save file and Zacian in my Shield save.

And an extra set of codes that I can’t use. I’ll keep those for anyone on here who’s to late to register this time.

At least they are replying, they've ignored my message from 2 weeks ago chasing up for a code.

Yep, got my shiny dog codes as well.

No idea what to do with the Sword one though. Might borrow @Ugh first aid's Switch and use my account to get myself both.

Pokemon support finally replied, funny because I was just about to chase them up (although it would have probably bumped me down the queue) and they gave me a code for Zarude and Celebi.

They suggested changing your email, but I've already tried that.

Saaaame. Well I made a Yahoo account years ago and literally never use it for anything. Now it has a purpose. xD
