New Pokémon Scarlet & Violet Mystery Code Added for January 2023


Players can claim some free items in Pokémon Scarlet & Violet thanks to a new Mystery Code added for January 2023.

Pokémon Scarlet & Violet players have been given an extra treat to start the year, with a new special distribution. According to, this new distribution offers players a random drop of either League Points, a Comet Shard, Star Piece or Stardust.

There's no way to guarantee a certain drop from this new code, but it has been given as a participation prize for the Japanese Pokémon Scarlet & Violet retweet competition. The top prizes from this competition are separate non-shared codes to get 100,000, 500,000 or 1,000,000 League Points.
