Get Shiny Zacian and Shiny Zamazenta at GameStop
Visit the retailer to receive a code card that lets you bring these Legendary Pokémon into your Pokémon Sword or Pokémon Shield game.
Are you a Pokémon Sword player who has been itching to add Zamazenta to your game? Or maybe you’re a Pokémon Shield player whose Pokédex has a noticeable lack of Zacian. Well, you’re in luck! Soon, you’ll be able to get Shiny Zacian and Shiny Zamazenta by visiting a GameStop store and picking up a special code card.
The codes let you receive Shiny Zacian in Pokémon Shield and Shiny Zamazenta in Pokémon Sword. Both Pokémon arrive at Lv. 100, and both Pokémon come with their trademark held item—a Rusted Sword for Zacian and a Rusted Shield for Zamazenta. These items allow the Pokémon to change into their powerful Crowned Sword and Crowned Shield forms, respectively.
