PSA: Get Your Gigantamax Meowth in Pokémon Sword & Shield
Pokémon fans everywhere have gone out to purchase the new Pokémon Sword & Shield titles. Launching last Friday, despite various controversies, the game still seems to be a success. Regardless of that, those that are early adopters do have a little incentive. For people that purchase Pokémon Sword & Shield before January 15th are entitled to a Meowth Mystery Gift. What’s so special about this Meowth you might ask? Well this Meowth not only has the original Kanto form, but it also has the ability to Gigantamax.
Unlike Dynamaxing, a Pokémon that can Gigantamax has a special form and unique attacks. The Gigantamax Meowth has an elongated body and glowing eyes to surely intimidate opponents. Need help figuring out how to get it? We’ve got you covered.
You can claim your Meowth very early on in the game, as Mystery Gift unlocks fairly quickly. Pretty much after choosing your partner Pokémon, Mystery Gift will unlock in the menu. Just press the X button and select Mystery Gift. From there, select “Get a Mystery Gift” and then finally, “Get via Internet”. The game will connect to the internet and search for a gift, where Meowth will be selectable. This Meowth can only be claimed once per game, so make sure to take good care of it. And that’s it, you are now the owner of a special Gigantamaxing Meowth! Remember, you have until January 15th to claim this gift, so get it out of the way ASAP!
