Original article [Tue 13th Sep, 2022 03:45 BST]: Despite the fact we're now just a few months out from the release of Pokémon Scarlet and Violet, The Pokémon Company is still running "limited-time" events for Pokémon Sword and Shield.

The latest one announced is a special in-store promotion taking place at GameStop in America and Canada, and EB Games in Australia and New Zealand. Players will be able to head in store and receive a special code card for a Shiny Eternatus. This event runs from September 18th to October 1st.

To redeem Shiny Eternatus, you'll have to boot up your copy of the game, select Mystery Gift from the menu, select Get with Code/Password, enter it and then the gift will arrive. Make sure to save as well! Here's a bit about Shiny Eternatus:

"Shiny Eternatus will appear at Lv. 100 with a Timid Nature and the Pressure Ability. It’ll know the moves Dynamax Cannon, Eternabeam, Sludge Bomb, and Flamethrower, so it should make a powerful addition to your team."
