Bonuses for Playing Previous Pokémon Games

Vincent Lau

This page outlines all the bonuses you can get for playing previous Pokémon games.

As an incentive for making you buy ‘em all, some Pokémon games give you small bonuses for playing a previous game. For example, you can get a Gigantamax "Pikachu" IconPikachu or "Eevee" IconEevee in Pokémon Sword & Shield if you played Pokémon Let’s Go Pikachu or Eevee.
