Serial Codes for Pokémon Sword & Shield are region free

Less restrictions

Serial codes have provided special cosmetic items for Pokémon players for many generations, but a previous restriction is now removed in the newest entry in the series. While the feature was available for Pokémon Let's Go Pikachu and Eevee, this documents the first time that serial codes are region free in a mainline Pokémon title.

Japanese, American, and European special events will no longer be exclusive to their particular region, as the codes can now be activated on any version of the game. Special thanks to Serebii for discovering the new region free feature.

Pokémon Sword and Pokémon Shield is now available for preload in Europe, and launches for Nintendo Switch on November 15th, 2019!
