Pokemon Sword and Shield players will soon be able to add two free mythical Pokemon to their collections. To celebrate the upcoming Netflix release of the series’ latest animated film, Pokemon the Movie: Secrets of the Jungle, the Pokemon Company is giving out a free Dada Zarude and Shiny Celebi for the Nintendo Switch games in October.

The mythical Pokemon will be distributed via a download code, which will be included in October’s Pokemon Trainer Club newsletter. To receive the code, you must create a free Pokemon Trainer Club account on the official Pokemon website and opt in to email marketing by Saturday, Sept. 25.

The newsletter containing the download code will be sent out on Oct. 7. Both Dada Zarude and Shiny Celebi play a prominent role in Secrets of the Jungle and aren’t normally available in Sword and Shield, so you won’t want to miss your chance to get them. You can see more details about each Pokemon below.

Dada Zarude

  • Level 70
  • Held item: Choice Scarf
  • Ability: Leaf Guard
  • Moves: Jungle Healing, Hammer Arm, Power Whip and Energy Ball

Shiny Celebi

  • Level 60
  • Held item: Lucky Egg
  • Ability: Natural Cure
  • Moves: Magical Leaf, Future Sight, Life Dew and Heal Bell

Once the download code has been distributed, you can claim the free Pokemon by opening the Mystery Gift menu in your copy of Sword or Shield and selecting Get with a Code/Password.

Pokemon the Movie: Secrets of the Jungle will be released internationally on Netflix on Oct. 8. The Pokemon Company says that a crossover event will also take place in Pokemon Go to celebrate the movie’s launch, but no further details have been announced yet.
