Region Finals Giveaways
April 10 and April 11, 2021, starting at 11:00 a.m. PDT each day
During the Pokémon Players Cup III Region Finals stream, a code will be revealed that can unlock a digital Pokémon TCG card in the Pokémon TCG Online. The first 50,000 people who redeem the code will get a digital Eldegoss V card from the Pokémon TCG: Sword & Shield—Rebel Clash expansion. This powerful card can be extremely useful if properly used in your deck.
There will also be a password to get a rare Dream Ball in Pokémon Sword or Pokémon Shield. Perhaps this special Poké Ball will inspire dreams of victory after you watch some of the top players battle it out.
Global Finals Giveaways
April 23 through April 25, 2021, starting at 11:00 a.m. PDT each day
The Pokémon Players Cup III Global Finals stream will reveal a code to unlock a digital Boss's Orders (Giovanni) card from the Pokémon TCG: Sword & Shield—Rebel Clash expansion. This extremely useful card will only be available to the first 25,000 people who redeem the code in the Pokémon TCG Online.
You'll also discover a password to get a Weakness Policy item in Pokémon Sword or Pokémon Shield. When held by a Pokémon, a Weakness Policy causes that Pokémon's Attack and Sp. Atk to sharply increase if the Pokémon is hit by a supereffective move. This versatile item can be particularly handy when used in conjunction with Dynamaxing your Pokémon. In fact, the Weakness Policy item was put to great use by Santino Tarquinio and Wolfe Glick, two previous Pokémon Players Cup VG Champions who both used a Weakness Policy in conjunction with their Gigantamax Coalossal. Perhaps this item will prove just as beneficial for your team.
Remember to watch the Pokémon Players Cup III Region and Global Finals to get the codes and passwords to claim these cool in-game rewards. And be sure to pay close attention to the action—you might just pick up some tips to improve your battle techniques, too!
