Pokemon Scarlet and Violet Gives Away Shiny Pokemon This Weekend Only

Pokemon Scarlet and Violet is currently hosting a limited-time giveaway of a Shiny Pokemon. Fans of the game can utilize the code PAULEU1CW1N to obtain a Shiny Arcanine until July 3rd. The distribution of the Shiny Arcanine is in celebration of the North America International Championships, which are being held this weekend in Columbus, OH. This particular Arcanine is modeled after the Arcanine used by Paul Chua, who emerged victorious in the Europe International Championships held in February.

Similar to other giveaway Pokemon, this Shiny Arcanine is at Level 50. It possesses the moves Flare Blitz, Will-o-Wisp, Protect, and Extreme Speed, and comes equipped with Safety Goggles as its held item.

During the 2022-2023 VGC season, Arcanine has emerged as one of the most frequently utilized Pokemon, boasting a usage rate of approximately 32% in the Oceania International Championships. Its popularity has surged due to its effectiveness in countering Flutter Mane in battles. Arcanine demonstrates considerable durability, allowing it to withstand at least one of Flutter Mane's attacks, and can be strategically built to swiftly defeat Flutter Mane with a single move.

Participants in the North America International Championships, taking place this weekend, are vying for the opportunity to compete in the highly anticipated Pokemon World Championships scheduled for August in Japan. Players will engage in traditional Pokemon video game tournaments, Pokemon Trading Card Game matches, as well as tournaments for Pokemon Unite and Pokemon GO. Fans can tune in to Pokemon's Twitch channel to catch some of the exciting competitive action throughout the week.

This marks the first year that Pokemon Scarlet and Violet are being incorporated into the Pokemon Trading Card Game. Players are limited to using Pokemon found exclusively in Pokemon Scarlet and Violet, with the exception of Koraidon and Miraidon. It adds a fresh dynamic to the tournament, encouraging players to strategize with the newly introduced cards from the latest expansion set.
