Where to get the shiny Baneful Fox mask

The shiny version of the Baneful Fox mask is not tied to a quest or catching a certain number of Pokémon for your PokéDex. Instead, it will be available as a Mystery Gift, and all players can acquire this item by jumping into the game and grabbing it from their menu, so long as they’ve connected to the internet. You can find the Mystery Gift item list in the Communications section of your in-game menu underneath the Lost & Found option.

Make sure you have the internet checked on when you attempt to grab the Mystery Gift. While online, you should receive the item as a gift, and you can wear the shiny version of the Baneful Fox mask.

The item will remain available in Arceus until May 31, 2023. From when it first arrived, all players have a little less than a full year to acquire this item and add it to their collection. Although there is no multiplayer aspect where you see and play alongside other players, these masks are a fun way to take pictures with your partner Pokémon or take them in the wild of catching Pokémon you encounter.
