Pokemon Mythical Distribution Event: Genesect, Volcanion, And Marshadow


This limited-time Pokemon Mythical Distribution Event features codes redeemable in Pokemon Sword and Shield for three Mythical Pokemon. Below you’ll find a brief background on the Pokemon in question:


Genesect is a Bug/Steel Mythical Pokemon capable of many different elemental attacks, depending on what type of Drive you insert into the cannon on its back. Genesect is sometimes referred to as the ‘Paleozoic Pokemon’.


Volcanion is a Fire/Water Mythical Pokemon known by many as the ‘Steam Pokemon’ because it can expel steam from the arms on its back and disappear into the ensuing fog.


Marshadow is a Fighting/Ghost Mythical Pokemon. Marshadow is humanoid in appearance and also known as the ‘Gloomdweller Pokemon’.

Neither Genesect, Volcanion, nor Marshadow exists in the wilds of Pokemon Sword and Shield. The only way to get these Pokemon is by transferring them via Pokemon HOME, trading, or through special event codes.
