For a limited time, if you head to Best Buy packing the Pokemon Pass app on your phone, well, Best Buy has a Mewtwo to give you.

That said, you can't get the free legendary yet. The promotion isn't available until November 4. After this, it will be available all the way until November 14, the day before Pokemon Sword and Pokemon Shield release. Once you have your code, you're going want to complete the following steps:
