How to redeem Mystery Gift codes in Pokémon Scarlet and Violet

Mystery Gifts for Pokémon Scarlet and Violet 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.

Mystery Gifts are found in the Poké Portal menu.

When you're ready to redeem a Mystery Gift, open your menu and scroll to the Poké Portal. Now, select 'Mystery Gift'. Doing so will bring you to four options:

  1. Get via Internet
  2. Get with Code / Password
  3. Check Mystery Gifts
  4. Check Poké Portal News
There are four Mystery Gift option svailable.

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.

'Check Mystery Gifts' opens a list of all the Mystery Gifts you've previously received in Pokémon Scarlet and Violet.

Finally, 'Check Poké Portal News' allows you to see the latest news released by Nintendo regarding Mystery Gift codes.

Available Mystery Gifts will appear on-screen when redeeming via internet.
