How to get a battle-ready Porygon2 for Pokemon Sword and Shield

The rounded, pink, digital bird Pokemon is yours for the taking.

Pokemon game and video game tournaments were put on hold due to COVID-19 until The Pokemon Company International formed the online Pokemon Players Cup. Loyal viewers were given an in-game mystery gift for Pokemon Sword and Shield: a battle-ready Porygon2 is available via password. With Pokemon Sword and Shield is the highest-selling series of Pokemon games in the last two decades, potentially over 18 million Pokemon trainers can get a hold of Porygon2 to add to their teams.

The first step is to watch the Pokemon Players Cup and retrieve the code for the broadcast. If you can’t tune in, don’t worry, Gamepur has you covered.
