The distribution code for a free Victini was announced at the Pokémon World Championship.

This week the Pokémon World Championships in London unveiled a special freebie for those of us watching the tournament at home.

From now until August 21, you can use mystery gift codes to redeem Victine in Pokémon Sword and Shield.

Originally spotted by Serebi, the download code for Mythic Pokémon is W0RLD22V1CT0RY.

To redeem it, just go to the game's "Mystery Gift" menu by pressing X, select "Get a Mystery Gift",

Then "Receive with code/password" and then enter the above code.

This is a rare opportunity, since there are currently no other ways to obtain Victini, other than to transfer one from Pokémon Home.

The Victory Distribution Event is great news for all those who are thinking of participating in competitive ranked matches.
