Pokémon Sword and Shield DLC Uniform pre-order bonus: How to get the bonus Pikachu Uniform and Eevee Uniform explained

How to get your special Pikachu and Eevee themed clothing in Pokémon Sword and Shield. 

If you've pre-purchased the Pokémon Sword and Shield DLC, then you'll be able to unlock two exclusive sets of clothing - the Pikachu Uniform and Eevee Uniform.

You'll be able to wear these uniforms as you wait for the release of the first part of the Expansion Pass - The Isle of Armor.

If you want to get a sneak peek at what the Expansion Pass promises, then you can even wear the Pikachu or Eevee Uniforms when you catch the Galarian Slowpoke, which was introduced into the games as a free update.

How to get the Pikachu and Eevee Uniforms in Pokémon Sword and Shield

You can only receive the Pikachu and Eevee Uniforms if you pre-purchase the Pokémon Sword and Shield Expansion Pass.

The Pikachu Uniform and the Eevee Uniform.

Shortly after completing the pre-purchase, you'll receive a code for both uniforms.

Remember - this is a one-time only code. Once you've used it, you'll be unable to download the uniforms again.

Ensure you're connected to the Internet before you try downloading the uniform or else you won't be able to enjoy your new threads.

Below we've outline the steps you need to complete to receive both of the uniforms:

  1. Turn on Pokémon Sword or Shield.
  2. Begin playing the game and open the X menu.
  3. From the X menu, select the option 'Mystery Gift.'
  4. Now, select the option for 'Get a Mystery Gift' from the new menu.
  5. Next, pick the option for 'Get with Code / Password' to be connected to the Internet.
  6. Enter the code for the uniforms.
Open Mystery Gift from the X menu, then select 'Get a Mystery Gift' and, finally, 'Get with Code / Password.'

Make sure you save your game once the uniforms have finished downloading.

It's now possible to transfer Pokémon to Pokémon Home and get Gigantamax Toxtricity.
