This Pikachu has two unique characteristics:

  • It knows the move Fly, which it normally cannot learn.
  • Its Tera Type is Flying.

You can receive it by choosing Get via Internet from the Mystery Gift feature in your game, up until Tuesday, February 28, 2023.

* Note: You will need to connect your Nintendo Switch system to the internet to claim this early-purchase bonus.

The user profile on your system will need to be linked to a Nintendo Account in order to connect to the internet. (This does not require a paid Nintendo Switch Online membership.)

It takes approximately 1 to 1.5 hours of play time before you can access the Mystery Gift feature.

This special Pikachu can be received in either the retail version or the downloadable version.
