The good old days weren’t always good…
Thank you so much, have a question to anyone who has gone to Gamestop or entered the code but wanted to ask is there a way to use the shiny Zamazenta code in Shield? Also if you have gone to Gamestop in the US do you need to show them you own the game or anything in order to get the code? Thanks!
The Shiny Zamazenta code is just for Sword.

I think the code distribution depends on the Gamestop. I just walked into mine and was able to get a few of the cards by asking. I didn't need my switch at all. And the second time, they just had the codes on the counter for anyone to take.

Hey thanks a lot for answering, I appreciate the information!

Has anyone else been unable to get into the Gym Challenge Wi-Fi event? When I go to Victory Station and select "Search Official Competitions," I get the message "No competition was found."

EDIT: Nevermind, I realized I forgot to sign up for it.

My memory is bit dodgy.

Let's just say I have Eternatus with Modest nature. I want to increase its Special Attack (252) and Speed (252) along with bit of HPs (4) to the max. I just buy 26 Calcium (Sp. Atk) and use it on Eternatus first, then buy 26 Carbos (Spd) and use it on Eternatus, then buy 1 HP Up and use it last. Then just level Eternatus up by 1 (using Rare Candy or the like) and all stats associated with what I was talking about are maxed out.

Do I get this right?

If I'm wrong, then I'd have to do the old fashion way by battling the low level wild Pokemon around 252 times each (depending on how much EVs they distribute) and 4 times for HPs.

The effects of the vitamins take affect immediately so no need to level up. Also wings can raise stats by 1 EV per wing. So I normally buy 25 of a vitamin then use 2 corresponding wings to get the 252. But 26 of the vitamin would work the same. Just make sure you do the one you only need 4 of last. But otherwise aside from the leveling you seem to have a handle on things.

I see. Thank you. Last time I've earnestly did the EVs training was back in D/P game. shrug Only thing I have to do is to grind for pokedollars. (I know about Luxury ball trick being bought using Watts).

I have 2 Switches. I am trying to trade between the two consoles with one game running Sword and the other running Shield, mostly for trade evolution purposes. It seems insanely complicated to do so far. It seems like I have to literally create two separate user accounts which means I have to have to separate Switch Online subscriptions. Is there not just a simple way to trade evolve a Pokémon with yourself if you have two Nintendo Switches or is it really this moronically designed that it requires all of this?

Please help. Thanks!

You don’t need a Nintendo online subscription if your just trying to trade locally.

Here is a link to a ign article on local and online trading in sword and shield that should help you out:

Is there a way to turn off locked random raids while staying online in Sword and Shield? I'm constantly seeing the Pokemon I want to find in raids that are locked by randos. I'm never going to be able to join a locked rando raid, so why the f do I need to see everyones' locked raids? There must be a way to stop seeing these...

Unfortunately at this time there is no way to filter out the locked raids. So right now you’re just going to have to refresh your list until you find what you are looking for.
