Watch the 2022 North America International Championships (NAIC) for a code to receive a special Pokémon for your Pokémon Sword or Pokémon Shield game. When the code appears during the broadcast of the big event, you'll be able to add Eric Rios's East Sea Gastrodon to your collection!
Gastrodon has been a staple of competitive Pokémon matches leading up to NAIC, including on the winning team at the 2022 Europe International Championships where Eric took home top honors. His Gastrodon's Storm Drain Ability has been an essential tool to shut down powerful Water-type Pokémon like Kyogre, and its Yawn move has proven effective in controlling opposing Dynamaxed Pokémon.
