Rare Shiny Beldum Confirmed as Launch Distribution for Pokémon Omega Ruby & Alpha Sapphire
Posted by Thomas Whitehead
Hordes to include Trainers, trailer and assets released
This Shiny Beldum distribution has now also been confirmed for Europe.
Earlier this week CoroCoro magazine revealed some exciting details regarding Pokémon Omega Ruby & Alpha Sapphire, focusing on three new Mega Evolutions and the workings of contests. As normal The Pokémon Company has now provided fully localised details and assets painting a clearer picture than translated scans.
It's been confirmed that the rare Shiny Beldum (pictured below) will become a whole lot more common, as it'll be a launch period distribution. It'll be holding its Metagrossite Mega Stone and will have plenty of evolution to deliver; it's confirmed for North America, though we'd expect the same opportunity to be available to European gamers.
The Pokémon Company International and Nintendo announced today that players can get a special Shiny Beldum holding a Metagrossite Mega Stone during a limited-time character distribution for the Pokémon Omega Ruby and Pokémon Alpha Sapphire video games when they launch on November 21, 2014, in the United States and Canada. This Shiny Beldum will evolve into Shiny Metang and then into Shiny Metagross. Players can then harness the power of the Mega Stone and Mega Evolve Shiny Metagross into Shiny Mega Metagross.
Also confirmed to return are horde encounters, in which you'd come across wild Pokémon in Pokémon X & Y; this time you'll also encounter Trainers in groups of up to five, which should be a great way to boost experience.
Finally, we have some nice artwork and screens for the three Mega Evolutions confirmed earlier this week, below.
The new trailer is below. Are you hyped for these new entries in the series this November?
