Welcome back to Pokemon News! After some time cooling off from ranting about Porygon, we finally have some news that is actually worth talking about. So let’s get right into it.
In distribution news, there’s quite a lot of them. In fact, this whole issue contains nothing but distribution news, so grab your 3DS, load up Omega Ruby or Alpha Sapphire, and get ready to download some Pokes.
First up, we have the next mythical Pokemon as part of the 20th anniversary distribution event, Darkrai. Unlike the previous mythics that have come and gone, Darkrai can only be downloaded via a serial could found at certain locations, usually a Gamestop. Here is the list of places to get a code for Darkrai, as well as how long the event will last before the next mythic is distributed:
United States – Gamestop – May 1st through May 24th
Canada – EBGames – May 1st through May 24th
United Kingdom – GAME – May 1st through May 24th
Australia & New Zealand – EBGames – May 1st through May 24th
Spain – GAME – May 1st through May 24th
Germany – Gamestop – May 2nd through May 24th
France – Micromania – May 2nd through May 15th
Italy – Gamestop – May 1st through May 24th
Belgium – FNAC or GameMania – May 1st through May 24th
Austria – Gamestop – May 2nd through May 24th
Netherlands – GameMania – May 1st through May 24th
Finland, Sweden, Norway & Denmark – BR Stores – May 12th through July 31st
Switzerland – Gamestop – May 2nd through May 24th
Portugal – FNAC Stores – May 1st through May 24th
Poland – In magazine CDAction
So head over to (insert specific location) and get yourself a Darkrai. Personally, this is Darkrai #2 for me, but that story is for another day….
The next distribution to talk about involves a surprise appearance by Xerneas, Yveltal, and Zygarde. Much to everyone’s delight, Zygarde and the shiny variants of Xerneas and Yveltal are being distributed via Internet to ORAS. In Europe, Zygarde will be available to download until May 26th. However, North America only has until May 8th to download him. After Zygarde, the shiny Xerneas will be available from May 11th to the 17th. And finally, shiny Yveltal will be downloadable from May 20th to the 26th. Its about time we got the shiny versions of Xerneas and Yveltal. Now if we could just get Spearmint Zygarde…
One last distribution to discuss. Reported on a while back, the legendary birds of Kanto are now able to be downloaded via a serial code in the recent Pokemon Newsletter in you email. Articuno, Zapdos, and Moltres each have their hidden ability, Snow Cloak, Static, and Flame Body respectively. So get them while you can.
And with that, that’s it for this week’s issue. But be warned, its May, which means CoroCoro is coming. And with it, our first look at Pokemon Sun and Moon. And you can bet your coin box that I will report on any information as it is made available. So see you guys next time!
