Shiny Pokemon are hard to come by, having a base odds of 1/4096 of appearing in the wild in more recent Pokemon games. However, players will be able to redeem a code to get a free Shiny Arcanine starting on June 30.

The fire dog Pokemon was used to win the Europe International Championship by Paul Chua, so in celebration, The Pokemon Company is giving players their very own Shiny Arcanine based on the winning pup.

The code will be available during the North America Championship International Livestream which takes place between June 30, 2023, and July 3, 2023. This guide will be updated once the codes become available. All the codes must be redeemed by 8 pm ET on July 3.
