How to get Mystery Gifts in Pokémon Scarlet and Violet

You will need to go through the story before you reach the academy in Pokémon Scarlet and Violet. When you get your first Pokémon Center, you’ll unlock the capability to use a Poké Portal. This will be how you go through and use anything related to the online services in Scarlet and Violet, such as multiplayer, trading, or even Tera Raid battles with your friends. Because it features online services, Mystery Gifts are part of them.

Once you’ve clicked on this option, there will be multiple ways for you to receive a Mystery Gift. You can obtain it through the internet, using a code or password, or check to see if you have any Mystery Gifts waiting for you or what’s going on in the Poké Portal News. If you’re trying to receive a reward through the internet, you must have a Nintendo Online Subscription to access the internet while playing Scarlet and Violet. The same goes for trading or Union Circle with your friends to explore Paldea.

Your Mystery Gift should automatically go into your inventory once you redeem it.
