There's a new distribution event available in Pokémon Sword and Shield and it's only on offer for one day - so act fast!
This time around it's an actual pocket monster - Coalossal. As explained by Serebii.net, this Pokémon was given out during the Pokémon Players Cup Invitational stream. The code you'll need this time is: V1CT0RYENG1NE25
"This code allows for all players to receive a Coalossal based on Wolfe Glick's Coalossaland"
"It runs Heat Wave, Meteor Beam, Protect, and Solar Beam and holds a Weakness Policy while having the Modest nature. It has the Gigantamax Factor and is Dynamax Level 10."
Have you redeemed the Coalossal yet? Are you still playing Sword and Shield on a regular basis? Leave a comment down below. View all of the past code distributions for Sword and Shield in our full guide.
Do.. people still play this anymore? It kind of feels like the game was a one and done deal for me, and I never really went back to it since.
It's cool that it's based off of Wolfe's own Coalossal, but I'd much rather train my own Pokémon from scratch than use someone else's
@VoidofLight It's got a pretty solid competitive scene I believe
@DrJoson Ah, that's right. I keep forgetting Competitive is a thing honestly.
@VoidofLight I played pretty regularly until the Crown Tundra DLC came out and I finished it's story section. Despite wjat some will tell you it's a lot of fun and the competitive postgame is actually very good. Adding every legendary back in was a huge mistake imo but aside from that it's really good.
I think there are missed opportunities. The Zeraora Max raids was really cool and felt like raids from go but then that’s really been it. The challenge gave you a reason to max raid and the shiny reward was brilliant.
It Would have been nice to give people a chance at Manaphy who hasn’t been available since 2016 in Europe..
It felt like on the 3ds I had frequent visits to Game or WiFi events to get some rare Pokemon
Just seems like it’s been abandoned. Shiny standard Pokemon raids aren’t of interest for me
Yeah thats what I did since online has no interest for me. Even sold it as it felt like the first pokemon game for me not to warrant another playthrough someday.
@DrJoson yeah, I agree!
Without competitive this game would absolutely suck for everyone over 12 or at least it doesnt have any replay value. It's just way too easy for people who have grown with the franchise over years and the exploring part is a joke.
Could have least made it shiny.
Dunno why people just don't play showdown as competitive
@WallyWest the cup winner’s giveaway mon is only a shiny if they actually used a shiny. Last year the korean winner in the asian cup was a shiny amoongus.
I... didn't even know that there was such a thing as a Gigantamax Coalossal.
@VoidofLight it's still selling quite a bit weekly so always new players aswell, I'm still finding full teams for the dlc adventure raids.
Fully expect it die off when the diamond/pearl remakes come out
I really missed events like those of Mewtwo, and Zeraora , Delibird with candies in Christmas holidays etc. A giveaway is always apreciated ,but i prefer appricorn balls and i still hope for a giveaway of Safari Ball .
@VoidofLight The competitive scene is going pretty strong and GameFreak are regularly updating the ruleset about which Pokemon are allowed to use in order to keep it fresh. There are raids and dynamax adventures to hunt for rare Pokemon in PvE. GameFreak is regularly updating the wild area events to thematically increase the odds of finding certain Pokemon, some of them with very high chances of being shiny. There are now 2 forms of shiny Pokemon aswell as rare marks so there are now a ton of different things people can hunt for if they care about that aspect of Pokemon.
In short, there is plenty to do if you like collecting Pokemon
Cool! Didn't have a trained coalossal yet. Might as well use Wolfe's!
Yo I love free stuff, it’s weird that they are doing an event based off a hacked mon though.
Ah it’s always cool to receive a free competitive Pokémon
This game just keeps on giving.
@Screen How is it hacked?
It might be the worst mainline Pokémon game tbh.
@VoidofLight Lots of people still play this game. I just recently restarted the game. Loaded my pokemons into Pokemon Home, so I can now get the other variants of the DLC pokemon.
Every time I connect to the internet, I see lots of people in the Wild area.
So yeah. People still play this game.
Aside from the novelty of this being based on Wolfe's Pokemon, there's nothing special here. You could make this Pokemon yourself from scratch in about an hour or so.
But if you play SWSH competitively - which is the only reason you'd want this - but don't actually already have a Coalossal... where have you been this whole time? It's probably one of the absolute BEST Pokemon possible in a dynamax metagame.
Which makes it being given away now kinda funny, since we just started the first non-dynamax metagame since SWSH dropped. lol
Wolfe has admitted to hacking his mons.
I have more interest to play Yokai Watch 3 Tempura since i got the game on February 2021 than revisiting my Pokemon Sword after postgame.
I still have some interest with Pokemon games but i have more interest with Yokai Watch games.
@VoidofLight I don't play competitively. So I've kind of moved on after completing the expansion. Maybe I'll jump on a rare occasion to do a Dynamax Adventure. But at the end of the day, it's just catching more legendaries that I've already got about four or five copies of. I like the Pokémon this generation. But SwSh are definitely my least favorite games
@Screen erm, I'm pretty sure he made a whole video talking about silly hacking accusations like this
All the people asking who still plays the game, I do, but literally only to shiny hunt lol
Remember when they put in that mega difficult, uncapturable Mewtwo raid? That was sort of brilliant. I like all of these celebrity giveaways, I think that's also cool, but I would have loved to see more special raids rather than the huge dump of legendary Pokemon that Crown Tundra put in. Make things special through the gameplay, not the grind.
It's not an accusation, he confessed.
@Screen no he didn't. He flat out denied. Do you have proof?
If you have any ideas please comment down below ill try and post your comments asap as im awake im in thailand.
