The Year of Legendary Pokémon kicks off today with distributions for Sinnoh legends Dialga and Palkia starting today (GAME in UK, GameStop in US), The Pokémon Company has released a brand new interview with series developer GAME FREAK, discussing these two iconic legendaries:
Codes are available for free until 28th February. Players of Pokémon Sun and Ultra Sun will receive a Palkia, while Moon and Ultra Moon players will receive a Dialga.
Today also sees the two debut in the newest era of the Pokémon Trading Card Game, with the Ultra Prism expansion out now. Pokémon TCG: Sun & Moon—Ultra Prism brings more than 150 new cards into the game, including five Ultra Beasts, 18 new full-art cards, and six all-new Prism Star cards. These are powerful Pokémon and Trainer cards that, when played effectively, can dramatically alter the balance of a match. Due to their game-changing effects, a player can put only one Prism Star card with a given name in their deck (rather than the usual four).
