Pokemon fans are in for a real treat over the next few months. Obviously, we all have the Alpha Ruby Omega Sapphire re-make to look forward to – but this isn’t the only thing to be excited for because Nintendo announced the release of a few Event Pokemon to add to our collections.
Between 15th October and 5th November, X & Y players will have the opportunity to get their hands on a special code from GAME stores, which will allow them to receive a Shiny version of the Ghost Pokemon; Gengar. He will come holding a Gengarite Mega Stone, ultimately turning him into Mega Gengar.
Gengar isn’t the only Event Pokemon available though. New Pokemon Diancie will also be obtainable via a code from GAME. This will follow the release of Shiny Gengar, between the dates of 6th November and 28th November.
GAME is a UK exclusive store, but fortunately the rest of the world won’t miss out. American fans can grab the codes for each Pokemon from participating Gamestop stores, and if you happen to be near an Intertoys Store or a Bartmsit Toystore, you can grab codes from there too.
Finally, Pumpkaboo, the Pumpkin Pokemon, will be available via the Nintendo Network throughout October to coincide with Halloween. To claim this special Super Size Pokemon, you need to make sure your 3DS is connected to the internet.
You need to select ‘Mystery Gift’ in the main menu, ‘Receive Gift’, and ‘Via Internet’ to receive the Pokemon. The Delivery Girl in the Pokemon Centre will pass it to you once you’re back in the game.
