The serial code can be found on the back of the manual or on a separate (white) sheet of paper within the box. Make sure to keep this in a safe place. You’ll need it for every installation. The serial code for the game has 20 letters (5 blocks with 4 letters).
A serial code, usually referred to simply as a code (Japanese: シリアルコードserial code) or password (Japanese: あいことばpassword), is a string of numbers and uppercase letters that players can enter to download a gift, typically a Pokémon or item. They first appeared in Generation V for Pokémon Global Link promotions, but these passwords were entered through the Global Link website. Starting from Generation VI, codes are entered from the main menu in core series games, under the Mystery Gift function, after choosing 'Receive Gift' and 'Get with Code/Password'. This requires connecting to the internet.

Types of codes
Serial codes can be split into two types: one-time use codes and common-use codes.
One-time use codes are mostly random strings of numbers and letters that can only be used to receive a gift once. If a gift from a one-time use code is downloaded and the internet connection is interrupted before it properly completes, it is possible that this will count as the code's single use and it will be unusable afterwards. One-time use codes can also be validated by entering the code in a game and declining to download the gift when the game asks whether the player wants to receive the gift that was found; this does not count as the code's use, but it does lock the code to that game for approximately one hour, temporarily preventing other games from using that code.
One-time use codes are generally distributed to individuals directly. This may manifest in a physical form, with stores commonly distributing special cards with unique serial codes to visitors; or it may be accomplished electronically, such as by sending unique codes to different submitted email addresses or through a newsletter (such as the Pokémon Trainer Club newsletter, on a few occasions).
Presumably as a measure to avoid confusion, one-time use codes for the Nintendo 3DS games do not use the numbers '0' or '1' and the letters 'B', 'I', 'O', or 'V'; serial codes for the Nintendo Switch games do not use the letters 'O', 'I', or 'Z'—the ability to enter these characters on the keyboard is also disabled.
One-time use codes also have certain fixed prefixes for certain events. The first four characters are often the same for all codes for the same event; occasionally, however, this prefix may differ depending on where or how the code was received. Different PAL region countries, for example, often have different prefixes for the same event. The first character also usually corresponds to the region it can be used with: 'A', 'E', 'J', or 'K' for American region, PAL region, Japanese region, or Korean region games (respectively); or 'F' for codes usable with more than one region. The second digit in the prefix generally matches the singles digit of the year when the code was released. The last two digits in code prefixes often exhibit a nearly consecutive upward trend across different events, with the letter 'Z' used as a stand-in for the number '0' and 'A' used as a stand-in for '1' (since those numbers are not used in one-time use codes).
Common-use codes are usually constructed as intelligble phrases made from combinations of words related to the event, such as SERENA01 for Serena's Fennekin.
These codes are released publicly and are intended to be used by any player. Thus, they do not have a limit to the number of times they may be used by different players or other such restrictions.
When a code that is less than the maximum length is entered, the game effectively considers the unused spaces at the end to be 0's. This means it is technically not necessary to include any 0's that may appear at the end of a common code (e.g., the code GENESECT20 could be entered as GENESECT2). Similarly, any number of 0's can be appended to the end of a common code and it will remain valid.

Sims 3 Game Serial Code
A large proportion of computer games require you to enter a unique product key to play the game, which is what Windows and most applications require you to do. This is to combat piracy so you couldn’t just copy a game CD and distribute it to all your friends. The problem has always been that if you misplace or accidentally throw away the CD case or box, the product key often goes with it. If you haven’t yet installed the game then you have a problem as contacting the game retailer/publisher will likely be a waste of time. However, if you have already installed the game and entered a product key, all is not lost.
A large amount of games these days are purchased and downloaded online which isn’t such a problem because your game serial numbers are stored either in an email or with the game service such as Steam or Origin, and you only need your username and password to retrieve them. But if you install a game from optical media, quite often the product key gets stored in the system registry, and as it’s easily accessible, there’s a good chance of recovering any previously typed in game serial.A utility called Game Key Revealer has been designed specifically for the sole purpose of reading and recovering game CD Keys and Serials for installed games on your computer. The creator also has another tool called SoftKey Revealer which concentrates on recovering Windows and application serial numbers. Game Key Revealer is possibly the only free tool around to specifically look for and reveal game keys, most other tools are shareware and only show a few characters of the key unless you register.
Game Key Revealer is only about 150KB in size and portable so you can run it without installing onto your computer. Just click the “Find Games” button to search for any game CD Keys on the computer and after a second or two, it will display the serials in the window. What you might also find is that there are keys listed which are from games you may have uninstalled ages ago, useful if you no longer have the key to hand.
You can save the found CD Keys in the list to text file (GameKeyRevealer.txt) in the same folder as the tool, open and copy the text directly to Word if you have it installed (File -> Copy to Word), or print it directly to your printer. The list of possible games it can find is pretty impressive, with over 2,000 currently supported. You can read the full list on the website to see if it can detect what you want it to.
A useful option for around 20 older games enables you to change an already installed serial key for another one, handy if you download and install a game then later buy the legitimate product. Select Tools -> CD Key Changer, choose the game from the drop down and enter the new serial number. Then press depending on your operating system, “32bit Change” or “64bit Change”. There is also a Refresh Rate Override tool, but you shouldn’t touch this unless you know exactly what changing your refresh rate does.
Game Key Revealer works on anything from Windows 95 up to Windows 8.

There is another free key finding tool which can find a few game keys although on inspection, every game in its small database is already included in Game Key Revealer. But if you have a problem with Game Key Revealer, you might like to try Magical Jelly Bean Keyfinder, one of the oldest Windows/application key finders out there.
The last resort – If you can’t get the game key you want from one of the tools above and you suspect it’s in the registry, the last option is to view the registry yourself and look for it. Using regedit is usually only recommended for experienced users, but it’s not a problem if don’t try to delete, edit or create anything. Press Win key+R, type regedit into the run box and navigate to the following registry keys:
HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINESoftwareWow6432Node (64-bit only)
Then have a look for a key with a name of either the publisher (EA Games, UBISoft etc), the game developer (THQ, Treyarch etc) or the game’s actual name such as Crysis or FIFA. Expand the key and look for anything that mentions or looks like a serial.

You can also search for the name using Ctrl+F but bear in mind any serials are unlikely to be outside of the 3 registry keys mentioned above. If you find what you’re looking for, double click on the entry in the right window and the copy the data.
