GameSpot is a video gaming website that provides news, reviews, previews, downloads, and other information on video games. The site was launched on May 1, 1996, created by Pete Deemer, Vince Broady and Jon Epstein. It was purchased by ZDNet, a brand which was later purchased by CNET Networks.
The Pokemon Company is celebrating the series’ 25th anniversary with a free Pokemon for Sword and Shield players. Beginning February 25, players will be able to claim a free Pikachu. What makes this particular Pikachu special is that it knows Sing, a move that it normally cannot learn in the games.
You’ll be able to claim this free Pikachu via a special password that will be revealed on Pokemon’s official website and other social media channels. The password will also be distributed through the Pokemon Trainer Club Newsletter. Additional details about the giveaway will be announced later.
