During the North American International Championships, Pokemon enthusiasts will have the opportunity to recreate an exclusive Pokemon in Sword and Shield.
During the competition, a code for players to redeem themselves with a Gastrodon developed after the Pokemon that Eric Riopaser Rios used to win the Europe International Championships will be distributed.

This Pokemon has a strong moveset with Earth Power, Ice Beam, Yawn, and Protect. It also has the capability Storm Drain and is capable of holding leftovers so it can be instantly used for combat. Gastrodon will be a level 50 Pokemon.
In the Pokemon Sword and Shield events, instructors who wish to add this Pokemon to their repertoire may simply select the appropriate number. During the events broadcast, a code will be sent to the participants who receive a Mystery Gift.
Riopaser won the Masters Division in the Pokemon VGC Europe International Championship back in April. This was the second first place in a row for the player after claiming gold earlier in the year at the regional qualifying stage. During the Pokemon Europe International Championship, he was one of only two players in the top 16 to use Gastrodon. With 12 wins and 2 losses, he finished the day with a record score.
Next time you compete in Pokemon VGC, you can take inspiration from the Riopasters'' success and strive for gold.
