Throughout the Pokémon franchises twenty year history, there have been a number of species that have only been made available through special promotions; the most notable of these being the iconic Mew. As part of a number announcements commemorating this milestone anniversary, The Pokémon Company International have confirmed today throughout 2016, fans will be given the chance to obtain not one or two of these special Pokémon, but eleven.
Starting in February, a brand new Mythical Pokémon from across the franchises first five generations will be made available to download onto copies of Pokémon X, Y, Omega Ruby or Alpha Sapphire. If you missed out on obtaining one of these special species in the past, now is the perfect opportunity for you to claim that Jirachi or Shaymin that’s been missing from your collection!
The 20th Anniversary celebrations will also include a wave of themed merchandise, such as figures, apparel and trading card game collections, which have been previewed in the announcement video below:
