The Pokemon Company is giving players a chance to vote for Pokemon Sword and Shield’s next freebie. Until May 20, the company is holding a poll on Twitter asking the community what item they would like distributed during the Pokemon Players Cup IV finals, which will take place later this summer.
The poll features four options: PP Max, Focus Sash, Lucky Egg, and Gold Bottle Cap. PP Max and Gold Bottle Cap are both used outside of battle. The former increases a move’s PP, while the latter can be spent at the Battle Tower to Hyper Train a Pokemon.
The Focus Sash and Lucky Egg, on the other hand, are held items. Focus Sash will let a Pokemon withstand what would have been a one-hit KO with one HP left, while the Lucky Egg increases the amount of experience points a Pokemon gains when it’s holding the item.
Glory, battling AND free stuff? We’re in.
From now until May 20, you can decide which of the #PokemonSwordShield items below will be distributed during the Players Cup IV broadcasts when they kick off later this summer!

This year marks the 25th anniversary of the Pokemon series, and as part of the celebration, Katy Perry recently dropped a new Pokemon song. Some new Pokemon games are also on the way in the next few months.
