How to Get Special Pikachu in Pokemon Scarlet & Violet

To get the Special Pikachu in Pokemon Scarlet and Violet, you have to pre-order the game. Both the retail version and the downloadable version will work. Then you have to use the in-game Mystery Gift feature, which will unlock after you’ve played for about an hour, maybe an hour and a half. That’s according to the official website. Once you have access to the feature, you can use it to redeem your Special Pikachu. Your system will have to be connected to the internet, and the user profile to to a Nintendo Account. You don’t need a paid subscription for this, though. However, you do have to redeem your Pikachu before February 28th, 2023. That should be plenty of time.

And there you have it, that’s how you get the Special Pikachu in Pokemon Scarlet and Violet. It’s worth the trouble, though. Apart from looking really cool, as you can see in the image above, but it will know the move Fly, which it normally cannot learn. It’s Tera Type is Flying, too. On top of all of that, the Pikachu is not the only thing you get for pre-ordering the game. You also receive ten Potions, one Nugget, one Rare Candy, three Revives, three Ethers, and five Full Heals. So, all in all, pretty good haul. Normally I try to discourage people from preordering, but this time around, I think it’s pretty safe to go for it. The bonuses are pretty decent, and you get a special Pokemon on top.
