Two years ago, we celebrated the 20th anniversary of the Pokémon franchise. An occasion that was marked by celebrations including a monthly Pokémon distribution – where Mythical creatures not found during normal gameplay could be downloaded from participating stores for free. This year, trainers will once again be returning to retailers to celebrate the Year of Legendary Pokémon.
Starting next months, owners of Pokémon Sun, Moon, Ultra Sun and Ultra Moon can receive a classic legendary Pokémon in their games. New TCG products will also be available at this time.
The list of available Pokémon is as follows:
February: Dialga (Ultra Moon) & Palkia (Ultra Sun)
March: Regigigas, Heatran
April: Raikou, Entei
May: Xerneas, Yveltal
June: Shiny Zygarde
July: Thundurus, Tornadus
August: Groudon, Kyogre
September: Latias, Latios
October: Reshiram, Zekrom
November: Lugia, Ho-Oh
The first set of Pokémon, Dialga and Palkia, will be available between 2-28 February from GAME in the United Kingdom and Gamestop in the United States and their moves will vary depending on the game that receives them. For more information, you can visit the official website. Dialga and Palkia codes must be redeemed by 23rd May 2018.
Each of the Pokémon will be obtained at lv.60 and may be holding a Gold Bottle Cap item!
With the exception of Shiny Zygarde, each month’s Pokémon pair are version exclusives in Ultra Sun and Ultra Moon. If the first month distribution is anything to go by, which Pokémon you receive will depend on your version.
