The Pokemon Company has released more details about the Zarude Mythical Pokemon distribution for Pokemon Sword And Shield in the West.
For the US, Canada, Australia, & Latin America, players will be able to receive the code simply by signing up for the Pokemon Trainer Club Newsletter by November 20th. The code will then be sent out via a special email in December. More details are available at this link.
For other countries in Europe, the code will be distributed at retail like usual. However, there will be online options if retail stores are not open in the country:
- Germany – Gamestop – In-Store now, Online from December 1st
- Austria, Switzerland – Gamestop – In-Store now
- Italy – Gamestop Online Store
- Spain – GAME retail, Online Store will add it soon
- Belgium, Netherlands – GameMania – Sign up on their website, codes sent out every Friday
- France – Micromania – Sign up on their website to get a code
- Portugal – FNAC Stores
- Sweden – Through Spelochsant or Webhallen’s online portal
- Ireland – Gamestop Website
As the codes are not region-locked, the most efficient method for players outside of these listed countries to get Zarude is probably to sign up for the Pokemon Trainer Club Newsletter. The codes themselves can only be redeemed until March 31st 2021, so be sure to use them quickly once obtained.
