Update: In the United Kingdom, players can obtain Shiny Rayquaza and Pikachu at Smyths Toys Superstores starting on 24th August, with the promotion lasting four weeks.
Original post: If you’re a fan of the legendary serpentine pocket monster, Rayquaza, and happen to live in North America, the latest distribution event for Pokémon Omega Ruby and Alpha Sapphire should be of interest.
A rare Shiny Rayquaza is now available via the latest Nintendo Network offer. The legendary Pokémon can be claimed by accessing the Mystery Gift feature in Pokémon ORAS and is receivable via internet only.
Shiny Rayquaza is level 70, arrives in a red event ball, is holding a Dragon Fang and has the following moveset: Dragon Ascent, Dragon Claw, Extreme Speed, Dragon Dance.
This matches the event that launched earlier this week in Australia and New Zealand via an EB Games' serial code promotion (lasts until 31st August). Unfortunately there is currently no information regarding a European event.
If you live in North America, or even Australia and New Zealand, let us know in the comments if you’ve claimed your free Shiny Rayquaza for Pokémon Omega Ruby and Alpha Sapphire in this limited time event offer.
