On the official Pokemon website, it was announced yesterday that Galarian Versions of Mr. Mime, Ponyta, Corsola, and Meowth have been made available. They will come with a variety of items and also include Hidden Abilities, making them pretty useful additions to your burgeoning team.

With the release of the Isle of Armor--the first part of the Pokemon Sword and Pokemon Shield expansion pass--drawing near, it's as good time as any to get free Pokemon. 

Starting today, there will be a new Pokemon each week released as a Mystery Gift. The schedule is included below:

  • May 22, 2020 — Galarian Mr. Mime with its Hidden Ability Ice Body, plus a Lure Ball, a Moon Ball, a Heavy Ball, and a Dream Ball.

  • May 29, 2020 — Galarian Ponyta with its Hidden Ability Anticipation, plus a Level Ball, a Fast Ball, a Love Ball, a Friend Ball, and a Beast Ball.

  • June 5, 2020 — Galarian Corsola with its Hidden Ability Cursed Body, plus Evolution items Sweet Apple, Tart Apple, Chipped Pot, Cracked Pot, Sachet, and Whipped Dream.

  • June 12, 2020 — Galarian Meowth with its Hidden Ability Unnerve, plus 100 Exp. Candies L and 50 Big Nugget.

After June 12 we can expect the Isle of Armor DLC to release, as it's currently scheduled to come out in late June. To get your in-game gift, players will have to launch their Pokemon Sword or Pokemon Shield title, select Mystery Gift, select Get a Mystery Gift, and then select Get via Internet. Once done, they'll get their free Pokemon, and this will be the only way you'll be able to get them (and possibly your only chance to get these pokemon with their Hidden Abilities), so act fast.
