Pokemon Sword and Shield Shiny Zasian / The Magenta Distribution for Japan

The Pokemon Company has announced that Japanese Sword and Shield players will soon be able to get the glossy Zacian and Zamazenta for the first time.

Previously, the development of glossy Zacian and Zamazenta was only confirmed in South Korea. In South Korea, fans who pre-order Pokemon Brilliant Diamonds & Shining Pearls are eligible to receive a special Pokemon code. With the confirmation of distribution in Japan, expectations are steadily rising that players around the world will eventually be treated as elusive pairs.

It will be distributed to Japanese players at video game stores nationwide later this month. Fans will need to bring the Switch Console into the store and display the home menu to staff from October 22nd to show off the Pokemon Sword or Shield icon. The staff then rewards those players with a code that can be used to download either Shiny Zacian or Shiny Zamazenta.
