Pokemon Legends Arceus

By utilising the special Mystery Gift feature in Pokémon Legends: Arceus, you'll be able to secure a variety of in-game goodies that'll help you on your adventure. Some items are given away using Mystery Gift codes, while others are available to all players via online distribution, but to get your hands on them, you'll need to have unlocked the Mystery Gift functionality in-game.

Thankfully, you've come to the perfect place to learn how to do just that. So, without further ado, here's how to unlock Pokémon Legends: Arceus' Mystery Gift function...

How to unlock Mystery Gifts in Pokémon Legends: Arceus

Thankfully, unlocking the Mystery Gift function in Pokémon Legends: Arceus is nice and straightforward, and simply requires patience above all else.

While not available to you at the start, the Mystery Gift function will become available to you naturally after you pass a certain point in the game. You should see the option to claim Mystery Gifts appear in your in-game menu once you've cleared the game's fifth mission, 'A Request from Mai'.
