Nintendo held a Pokemon Sword and Shield Players Cup and you can reap the benefits right now. Namely, you can claim a free reward in the form of a Dream Ball. You can only get one of these per save file at Wyndson Stadium and this ball will give you a bigger chance of obtaining sleeping creatures that could come in handy for finishing the last entries of your Pokedex.

You can also view it as a collector's item for the most dedicated Sword and Shield players. It'll be a while until the remakes hit the market, so this could be a good way to extend its life.

To use the promo, enter the "DREAMB1GPC3" code in the gift section of the menu. Make sure you use the opportunity while you can.
