How to get and unlock Mystery Gift in Pokémon Legends: Arceus

Unlocking the Mystery Gift feature in Pokémon Legends: Arceus is simple - you just need to complete the fourth mission, Getting to Work on Research Tasks. This means the Mystery Gift feature is available when the Mission, A Request from Mia, starts.

After this, the Mystery Gift feature will appear in the Communications menu accessed via your satchel.

Depending on your playstyle, unlocking Mystery Gift can take you between two to three hours of gameplay.


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 redeem Mystery Gift codes in Pokémon Legends: Arceus

Mystery Gifts for Pokémon Legends: Arceus can be redeemed using codes or from downloading them via the Internet; both methods require an Internet connection, but, thankfully, you don't need a Nintendo Switch Online membership to collect any gifts.

When you're ready to redeem a Mystery Gift, open your satchel and scroll to the Communications menu. Doing so will bring you to three options:

  • Get via Internet
  • Get with Code / Password
  • Check Mystery Gifts

Always ensure you select the correct option for the gift you wish to download, because you can't download a gift requiring a code via the Internet or vice versa.

Selecting 'Get via Internet' will open a list containing all the gifts currently available via this option from which you can select a reward. You can only download one option at time though, so, if there are multiple items available, this process will have to be repeated.

Choosing 'Get with Code / Password' opens a box when you can enter the code / password for the gifts. Once the code / password is entered correctly, you simply need to wait for the items to download into the game.

It's important to note that, if the battery runs out while receiving a gift, then you'll no longer be able to use the same code or password to earn that specific gift. For this reason, we recommend always checking how much battery your Nintendo Switch has or playing it while docked to download such gifts.

Finally, 'Check Mystery Gifts' opens a list of all the Mystery Gifts you've previously received in Legends: Arceus.

Good luck collecting Mystery Gifts in Legends: Arceus!
