Pokemon Scarlet and Violet are the next titles to be featured in the My Nintendo rewards program, with two physical rewards to be added soon.


Pokemon is the latest focus for My Nintendo as the newest physical rewards fans can soon redeem are both themed after Pokemon Scarlet and Violet. Nintendo has also added digital rewards based on the title currently available for My Nintendo Points redemption. With the rocky release of Pokemon Scarlet and Violet, perhaps the upcoming rewards will entice more players to give it a chance.


Pokemon Scarlet and Violet are the franchise’s newest role-playing games. The open-world format allows players to progress at their own pace while they battle other players and catch Pokemon out in the wild. Fans can also encounter Koraidon and Miraidon, the Legendary Pokemon for each of their respective games. The games were released on November 18 and have since received mixed reviews.

To celebrate the game’s release, Nintendo has offered several reward options for redemption, with some included in the Nintendo Switch Online subscription. One reward consists of a glistening wallpaper. The design of the wallpaper is based on Terastallizing, a phenomenon that causes a Pokemon to “shine and glimmer like gems.” The art depicts a Pokemon trainer and an Eevee that showcases the crystallized state of being. Fans can redeem this reward using 50 My Nintendo Platinum Points. Another reward includes Nintendo Switch Online Pokemon Scarlet and Violet character icons that will be available until Christmas Day.

The upcoming physical rewards fans can expect to redeem using My Nintendo Platinum Points are a mini-notebook with new generational starter icons printed over a yellow background. The second reward is a highlighter inspired by the two Legendaries and themed after the colors of the new Pokemon Scarlet and Violet games. Nintendo states that more information about these physical rewards will be released soon, so not much is known about what it will take to redeem them. However, it is without a doubt that reward redemption will take a large amount of My Nintendo Platinum Points.

The success of the games is hard to determine. Recent news has covered glitches that break the game and some reviews have called it a complete mess of bugs. Luckily, there’s an auto-save that helps players experiencing these unfortunate events to keep their progress. Besides glitches, Pokemon Scarlet and Violet are also being criticized for their bad graphics. Needless to say, the reaction to the games’ condition upon release isn’t great and is the cause of a lot of player frustration.

Though it’s exciting to have new Pokemon game releases, it remains to be seen if these will make a mark in the franchise due to their mixed reception. Nintendo seems to be making an effort to entice players who are on the fence about whether the purchase of Scarlet and Violet is worth it with these rewards. In the end, games speak for themselves and as time goes on Pokemon fans will have to wait to see if these ones hold up in the future.
