All kinds of Pokemon are beging distributed in honor of the series’ 20th anniversary. This month, we’re getting seven. In addition to the Darkrai distribution event happening at GameStop and a Legendary Birds giveaway via the Pokemon Newsletter, you’ll be able to download Pokemon X and Y’ s legendaries.
Until May 8, everyone with Pokemon X, Y, Alpha Sapphire, and Omega Ruby can get a free Zygarde. Turn on your copy of the game, head to Mystery Gift, and choose to download a Pokemon over the internet. May 11-17, a Shiny Xerneas will be given away. Finally, it all ends with a Shiny Yveltal from May 20-26.
Here’s the official video announcing this Pokemon distribution event.
It’s a pretty good deal. Granted, you may already have a Yveltal or Xerneas from your Pokemon X and Y adventures, but odds are those aren’t shiny. These ones are. Shiny always means better, right?
