The Pokemon Sword and Shield Shiny Distribution Event may be held next week
There are rumors that Western Pokemon Sword and Shield players will soon have the chance to get a Shiny Zacian or a Shiny Zamazenta from participating GameStop locations! Currently, GameStop has not officially announced the promotion, but GameStop announced in Japan and South Korea not long ago that local Pokemon Sword and Shield players can get the two Shiny Pokemon.
According to a report from Poke Beach, the United States will have a pair of distribution windows for those who enter GameStop and receive two shiny forms in their respective games. Shiny Zacian will be launched from October 22 to November 11, but it can only be downloaded to Pokemon Shield games. Alternatively, Shiny Zamazenta will only be available to those who own the Pokemon Sword game, and it will get from GameStop between November 12th and 27th.
The Zacian and Zamazenta are a pair of legendary Pokemon that first appeared in Sword and Shield. Players can only get the Pokemon that appears on the cover art of the Sword or Shield, forcing them to exchange for another one. This promotion not only allows players to obtain Shiny Pokémon but also allows them to obtain legendary that could only be obtained through trading. The Zacian and Zamazenta are "Shiny locked" in Sword and Shield, which means that promotions like this are the only legitimate way to obtain them.
For those unfamiliar with Shiny Pokemon, they offer no special advantages over traditional colored Pokemon. However, some Shiny Pokemon offer wildly different color schemes, and their rarity makes them highly sought after. Moreover, some players may never encounter such opportunities outside of an event, so these opportunities can be very exciting.
If the Shiny Zacian and Zamazenta event does start next week, it will come shortly after a distribution event for Shiny Celebi, which took place just last week. Hope that GameStop will make an official announcement soon so that players can make plans.
