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 or Eevee in Pokémon Sword & Shield if you played Pokémon Let’s Go Pikachu or Eevee.

Rotom Phone Cases
In Scarlet & Violet’s case, you can receive a unique phone case for your Rotom Phone depending on which Pokémon game(s) you’ve played.
The eligible games include:
|Pokémon Let’s Go Pikachu or Eevee||Based on a GameBoy Pokémon battle.|
|Pokémon Sword or Shield||Based on the Ball Guy.|
|Pokémon Brilliant Diamond or Shining Pearl||Based on the Pokétch.|
|Pokémon Legends Arceus||Based on the Arc Phone.|
For each pair of games (or singular game in Arceus’s case), you can obtain a phone case inspired by those game(s).
To physically receive the unique phone cases, you should speak to a woman with sunglasses standing in front of the stairs leading to the central plaza, in Mesagoza, the main city of the Paldea region. According to Nintendo, it can take roughly 2 hours to reach her.
