A new Pokemon Sword and Pokemon Shield distribution for Shiny Zacian and Shiny Zamazenta will soon be available at GameStop, the retailer has announced. This will be offered to fans in the United States.

Typically this sort of distribution would be a big deal. However, GameStop casually announced the news on its Facebook page this weekend. As far as we can tell, The Pokemon Company itself hasn’t even mentioned the news, including on its own website.

The Pokemon Company is teaming up with Best Buy, as the retailer will be offering a way for players to catch Gigantamax Eevee and Gigantamax Pikachu in Pokemon Sword and Pokemon Shield.

Those that stop by the retailer will be able to pick up code cards that can be redeemed for Dynamax Crystals. These will then let you battle – and hopefully catch – a Gigantamax Pikachu and Gigantamax Eevee. You can request a code card at the register without making a purchase.
