Charizard Distribution Event for Pokémon X & Y Coming to GAME UK, Includes Mega Stone

Posted by Thomas Whitehead

Things are heating up

Pokémon X & Y may have been released last October, but it's still a hub for millions of players engaging in online battles and trading pocket monsters. There's also the Trading Card Game, and The Pokémon Company is taking the opportunity to plug its most recent expansion — Pokémon TCG: XY—Flashfire — by offering a distribution through GAME stores in the UK — it brings a previous Japan-only event over to the West.

From Friday (11th July) until 10th August players with a 3DS / 2DS and either game will be able to head into their local GAME and use Nintendo Zone to pick up a free 'mon; stores without Nintendo Zone will provide a special code. It's a Charizard, and the details from the press release, below, show why you should want it.

This Charizard is holding the Mega Stone that enables it to Mega Evolve during battle, becoming even more powerful than before! Pokémon X players will get a Charizard holding a Charizardite Y Mega Stone. The Charizard that Pokémon Y players get will be holding a Charizardite X.

Will you be heading to your local GAME in the UK, or are you elsewhere in the world and hoping that this event will be available in your area? Let us know.

I've been off Pokémon for a bit now but I'll try to get this. It's a free Charizard, so why not?

As someone who never played a Pokemon game and upon reading the Charizardite XY explanation:

Eh, It would be nice if this charzard promotion was in the US, but I really don't care. Charzard is kind of overrated.

I hope this comes to the states.

On a side note, I am very, very disappointed at the lack of special distribution events outside Japan, generally. We have three reported legendaries, and even though one has been announced (Diancie) we still have no way to get ANY of them. We also have never had a legit event (to my knowledge) for Arceus. It's ridiculous because the pokemon fanbase outside Japan is at least as large as the Japanese fanbase.

So you can get a Charizardite that isn't obtainable in the version you play?! Sweet! Now hopefully we can have a similar distribution for Mewtwo! Also, the Charizard distribution better come to America as well!

@pokemonxpert246 One of the few things X has that's better than Y is Charizard X, but it looks like Y players get to have that too. Plus, Yveltal kicks the crap out of Xerneas.

I have had it with these Mega freaking Charizards in this Mega freaking game!

Seriously Nintendo, promote ANOTHER Mega Pokemon. At the very least it's not "everybody gets a Mega Charizard X no matter what".

Uhh.... I want it... But i could probably breed a better one. Also, I personally think that Charizard X sucks. Who wants a Physical attacking Charizard??

Thank goodness! Finally a UK event! Er...well...one that I can take part in at least. I hope this will also be happening in game stores in Northern Ireland.

@Kogorn733 false. US has had plenty of events. Its your fault for missing them during Gen 4 Shaymin phoine and jirachi was also distrbuted during gen 3 and not paying attention online. Arceus was distrbuted in Toys R us November 2009. Genesect was fall 2012 during Pokemon Black and White 2. all 3 gen 4 trios where distrbuted at gamestop two weeks before X and Y release. weve had plenty but if you are complaining that the US doesnt get that many right now yes I agree. weve had plenty you are just not paying hard enough NOT TO MENTION Diance has already been anounced by nintendo here in the US and you can mega evolve it in Omega Ruby and ALpha sapphire. we have a way of getting it. Your just not patient. We will be getting it if you go on youtube and watch both the Diance trailer, and ruby and sapphire announcement trailer.

Not in the states? That's kinda lame. We haven't gotten many events this gen. What have we gotten so far...Fancy vivilon and chimchar?
Well, I don't need it, personally. I hatched myself a flawless shiny charmander in X. Not trying to brag, but...yeah. I love my sparkly blackizard. I named him Deimos and gave him a Y megastone. :)

Why can't we have some Wi-Fi event, so everyone would be able to pick that worldwide? You know what's bullshit? People who live in a country that NEVER get this kind of event neither have Gamestop, Walmart or any videogame store that could remotely participate in such events. I had a big reason to put down my X/Y copies, and the lack of worldwide gift events isn't helping. I'm skipping R/S remakes if things don't change at all.
