So, now that Pokemon Sword and Shield has gotten into people's hands, and the release is coming soon, this thread will be highlighting known mystery gifts, events, tournaments, and other stuff to do with online features.

Current Events:

Mew
Forever
If you have a Pokeball Plus, you can use it to redeem a Mew, in which you can use it in-game.

Gigantamax Pikachu and Eevee
Forever
These Gigantamax Forms can only be obtained if you have play records from their respective Let's Go games.

Gigantamax Meowth
Friday, Nov. 15, 2019, to Wednesday, Jan. 15, 2020
As an early purchase bonus, you can get a Gigantamax Meowth by selecting the "Get Via Internet" in the Mystery Gift section to get the special cat.

Clothing
???
If you order Sword and Shield from a Walmart in the United States, you get an orange tracksuit. If you Pre-Order on Amazon, you get a golden backpack.

"From Friday, November 15, 2019, until early January 2020, players will be more likely to encounter Gigantamax Butterfree in Max Raid Battles.

During this same period, players of Pokémon Sword will also be more likely to encounter Gigantamax Drednaw and players of Pokémon Shield will be more likely to encounter Gigantamax Corviknight!

And it seems there may even be other Gigantamax Pokémon that could appear more often than usual, so be sure to give Max Raid Battles a try!

We suspect that the Gigantamax Pokémon you're likely to encounter will change over time, too, so stay tuned!"

You're forgetting the Mew you get from that one Poké Ball thing.

I don't know if this counts, but what about the clothing giveaways? Like how Wal-Mart (in the US) has the orange track suit or the Amazon pre-orders have the golden backpacks?

Will this "event" still work if I don't have a Nintendo Online subscription?

I think so? The fine print on that page reads: "To enjoy the above feature, you’ll need to connect to the internet," but doesn't mention NSO.
That makes sense. For some reason I thought the fine print was referring to Max Raid battles with friends.

Probably should, as it technically is a gift/bonus code that does effect the game in some form or another. I suggest adding it for completion sake, at the very least.
