Those with save data for Pokémon Let's Go Pikachu! and Pokémon Let's Go Eevee! need not feel left out, however. Anyone with save data for either game can receive a Pikachu or Eevee mask in Pokémon Legends: Arceus, depending on which games they had save data for.

Please note that even if you are subscribed to Nintendo Switch Online, save data for Pokémon Sword, Shield, Let's Go Pikachu!, and Let's Go Eevee! does not get saved to the save data cloud. This means that you'll have to redeem these items and events on the same Nintendo Switch that you played those games on.
