Pokémon Legends: Arceus pre-order bonus downloads
The Pokémon Legends: Arceus pre-order bonus is fairly straightforward and similar across all major retailers with one small difference.
Those who pre-order physical copies of Pokémon Legends: Arceus before the game’s release date will receive two in-game items after the game’s launch:
- Hisuian Growlithe Kimono Set
- Baneful Fox Mask
Every retailer is offering this same bonus, except for Amazon which has a slightly tweaked pre-order bonus with a Garchomp Kimono Set instead of one mimicking Hisuian Growlithe.
Those who pre-order digital versions of Pokémon Legends: Arceus will receive the same outfit bonuses, but they will also be able to redeem a code to receive 30 Heavy Balls.
