In order to claim the Unova Cap Pikachu, load up your save in Pokemon Sword or Pokemon Shield and go to the Mystery Gift menu. Select “Get a Mystery Gift”, then “Get with Code/Password”. The system will then need to connect to the Internet. Once it reaches the menu, type P1KABESTW1SH into the command prompt to receive the gift. The Unova Cap Pikachu will then appear in your party or in the Box. You have until November 30 to claim it. The release announcement can be seen in a post on the Serebii Twitter page.

This was the season where Ash traveled to Unova and started a new Pokemon journey. Ash would run afoul of Team Plasma, leading to a confrontation with the mysterious N.
Pikachu is due to receive more special Cap variants based on the different regions in the Pokemon world, including the Kalos Cap and Alolan Cap. Check back in with TheGamer to find out the codes for these exclusive Pokemon when they’re revealed.
