Pokemon Sword and Shield players can get a free Dada Zarude and Shiny Celebi thanks to the Pokemon Trainer Club newsletter.

In celebration of the upcoming release of Pokemon the Movie: Secrets of the Jungle, the Pokemon Trainer Club is giving away download codes for a free Dada Zarude and a Shiny Celebi. All players have to do is sign up to the email newsletter by Sept. 25.

The code will be distributed as part of the October newsletter, which is why players will need to sign up before Sept. 25 in order to be included. The codes are being offered in the run-up to the Western release of the movie on Netflix on Oct. 8.

How to Sign Up for Pokemon Trainers Club Newsletter

Signing up to the Pokemon Trainers Club newsletter is pretty straightforward. Players will need to go to the official Pokemon website and register. Be sure to opt in to email marketing or you won't receive the newsletter. Once the code has been received, players can claim their free Pokemon by opening the Mystery Gift menu in-game and selecting 'Get with a Code/Password.'

The newsletter containing the download codes will be sent out on Oct. 7. Both Pokemon offered play an important role in Pokemon the Movie: Secrets of the Jungle and can't be found in Sword and Shield in any other capacity. Be sure to grab your code while you can if you don't want to miss out.

A Pokemon GO crossover event is also on the table for the upcoming movie release. As of yet, no further information has been given.
