Pokemon Sword and Shield: How to Get Shiny Zeraora

Following the number of Raids carried out so far, we can receive a shiny Zeraora.

It's therefore the second official distribution of this creature, which wasn't recoverable until now if you had missed the one available on the seventh generation, Ultra-Sun and Ultra-Moon.

The shiny version of this Mythical Pokémon is available since yesterday through the Pokémon HOME. Here are the different steps to get it and transfer it to your version of Pokémon Sword or Shield.

Prerequisites

To be able to obtain it, you will need to have several items / applications here.

  • A smartphone
  • A Nintendo Switch
  • Pokémon HOME on Switch
  • Pokémon HOME on your smartphone
  • A version of Pokémon Sword or Pokémon Shield

If you havn't yet downloaded Pokémon HOME, here are the different links to get it:

  • Pohémon HOME on Nintendo Switch
  • Pokémon HOME on Android
  • Pokémon HOME on iOS

The paid subscription to Pokémon HOME is absolutely not mandatory to do the following.

It's important to specify that the extension pass is not at all necessary to obtain this creature.
