Unlocking the early-purchase bonuses for Legends: Arceus explained.

The Hisuian Growlithe Kimono Set and the Baneful Fox Mask are early-purchase bonuses for Pokémon Legends: Arceus.

If you've chosen the digital version of the game, then you can also download an additional 30 Heavy Balls.

Though these are now Pokémon Legends: Arceus pre-order bonuses - you can still get them after the game has been released - these items are only available between Friday, 28th January to Monday, 9th May 2022.

How to get the Hisuain Growlithe Kimono Set and Baneful Fox Mask bonuses in Pokémon Legends: Arceus

Before attempting to download the Hisuain Growlithe Kimono Set and Baneful Fox Mask in Pokémon Legends Arceus, there are three facts you need to take into account.

The first is that both of these items will only be available until Monday, 9th May 2022 at the following times:

  • UK - 12:59am (BST)
  • Europe - 1:59am (CEST)
  • East Coast US - 7:59pm (EDT)
  • West Coast US - 4:59 pm (PDT)

After this time, these items will no longer be available, so, whether you want to wear them or simply have them in your collection, make sure you complete the download before this date.

Secondly, you'll need an Internet connection to collect the Hisuain Growlithe Kimono Set and Baneful Fox Mask. You don't, however, need a Nintendo Switch Online membership.

Finally, you need to unlock the Mystery Gift feature in Legends: Arceus which will occur roughly two hours into the game's main campaign.

Once you've unlocked Mystery Gift, open it and select 'Get via Internet.' Now all you have to do is follow the instructions on screen and, after a short wait time, you'll have downloaded these cosmetic items.

Now simply have to visit the clothier in Jubilife Village to equip the Hisuain Growlithe Kimono Set and Baneful Fox Mask.


Our Pokémon Legends Arceus walkthrough will help you pick a starter Pokémon and win the Kleavor boss fight. You’re also tasked with filling the Hisui Pokédex by obtaining new evolutions like Kleavor by evolving Scyther, Wyrdeer by evolving Stantler, Sneasler by evolving Hisui Sneasel and Overquil by evolving Hisui Qwilfish. There’s a host of new evolution methods, including ones for the Eevee evolutions. Take the time to complete Requests too, such as The Sea’s Legend, Wurmple’s Evolved! and finding the Wisp locations. Don’t forget to track down every Unown location too.


How to get the Heavy Ball bonus in Pokémon Legends: Arceus

If you've purchased the digital version of Pokémon Legends: Arceus from the Nintendo eShop, you'll receive a code for 30 Heavy Balls.

To get this code, however, you must purchase the game before Monday, 9th May 2022 at the following times:

  • UK - 12:59am (BST)
  • Europe - 1:59am (CEST)
  • East Coast US - 7:59pm (EDT)
  • West Coast US - 4:59 pm (PDT)

This code will be valid until Monday, 16th May 2022 at the same times listed above.

Heavy Balls are more effective against Pokémon which haven't noticed you yet.

To download the Heavy Balls, you need to unlock the Mystery Gift feature, which occurs roughly two hours into the game. Using Mystery Gift requires an Internet connection, but you don't need a Nintendo Switch Online membership.

When you're ready to receive the Heavy Balls, open the Mystery Gift feature and select 'Get with Code / Password.' You will then need to input your unique code and, after a small wait, the Heavy Balls will arrive.

Good luck in the Hisui region!
