Here are the full details that are currently known about the special Pokémon: Sword & Shield Shiny Zacian and Zamazenta promotion going on at GameStop:

  • Shiny Zacian and Shiny Zamazenta will be given out through codes at GameStop. This will be the same type of situation as Shiny Toxtricity earlier this year.
  • Shiny Zacian codes will be given out at GameStop starting on October 22nd. This promotion will end on November 11th.
  • Shiny Zacian will be exclusive to Pokémon: Shield.
  • Shiny Zamazenta codes will be given out starting on November 12th. This promotion will conclude on November 26th.
  • Shiny Zamazenta will be exclusive to Pokémon: Sword.

That is all that is currently known about this highly anticipated release. Zacian and Zamazenta are the game mascots of Pokémon: Sword and Shield so they are likely to bring a wave of interested customers to GameStop to acquire these codes.

The Japanese Pokémon TCG is also releasing a Special Deck Set featuring Shiny Zacian V and Shiny Zamazenta V. It is not yet known how these cards will come to English. It is unlikely that we will see them as GameStop promos, as GameStop rarely has fully exclusive Black Star Promos. Instead, they tend to release stamped versions of cards from previously printed sets.

Stay tuned to Bleeding Cool for more information on this release as well as news regarding the eventual English release of the aforementioned Shiny Zacian V and Shiny Zamazenta V Pokémon cards.
