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.

  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.
