Just recently we shared the news that Legendary Pokémon Zygarde was released as a gift in Europe; now it's arrived in North America, with more to come as special rewards in May.
The Pokémon Company is releasing three enticing Pokémon in the US this month as Mystery Gifts through the Nintendo Network, to be found in Pokémon X/Y and Omega Ruby/Alpha Sapphire. In addition to Zygarde the US will also get a Shiny Xerneas and Shiny Yveltal; all three will be level 100. The schedule is as follows:
- May 2–8: Zygarde
- May 11–17: Shiny Xerneas
- May 20–26: Shiny Yveltal
They'll all appear in the usual 'Mystery Gift' area in the game, after which you 'speak to the delivery girl in any Pokémon Center to receive the Pokémon.'
As for what they'll have to offer, you can see some pretty artwork and details below.
Considering the fact Zygarde has previously landed in Europe there may be a similar promotion in the region, though The Pokémon Company is tying these particular distributions to a celebration for Pokemon the Series: XYZ making its debut in the US.
Will you be picking these up? Let us know in the comments.
If I'm in America with my UK 3DS during those weeks, can I download those shinys if I'm using my UK PAL 3DS using wifi in America??
Excited to receive a level 100 bacon bird.
Kinda confused about the point of legendary Pokemon if they keep giving all of them away in such a short interval, and at level 100 too.
We're catching up with Japan a wee bit, they got these a few months ago. There's Zygarde forms been revealed, maybe we need Zygarde to get them. So many legendarys atm 😊
Yveltal in my X version? Aww yeah.
(Hoping this comes to Europe.)
Awesome! Can't wait to pick these up.
@AlexSora89 And now I'll have Xerneas in my Y version! LOL
Zygarde is the only one who isn't shiny? Why?
Getting a legendary Pokemon out of nowhere it's nice and everything, but I have every Pokemon. What's the point of playing thousands (literally) of hours in nine Pokemon games to get every legendary and transferring through Poke Transporter to my Y version if they will just be given? They are legendary Pokemon, supposed to be rare and hard to get, I mean, some legendary are not even rare anymore cause everyone got them without any trouble or ability. It's frustranting
@JonathanX @MasterWario they're distributing all the legends due to the anniversary of Pokemon. Japan gets a lot of mystery gifts but not all of them are legendary. Most of them will be championship Pokemon or special moves, ect. The reason why these specifically are dropping are because of the XYZ movie that is coming/came out(don't keep up to date on movies and shows, I just like the games).
On a side note, I'm going to get this mystery gift now.
I definitely want these, especially that shiny Yveltal (I've got a liking for all the legendary birds).
Hopefully it'll be announced in Europe shortly.
We are getting Legendary overload these days....
Also don't see the point of Zygarde if it's not shiny. Anyone with X or Y has that.
I have Zygrade already. Will be getting other two since they are shinies and they look amazing
Shiny Meloetta when?
Also I wonder if the will ever give a shiny zygarde.
@woomy ...I can't un-see that now.
My first thought was how inverting the black bits on both Pokémon to white actually looks pretty cool.
So we can get all 3 of these at home without going to Gamestop? Maybe my kids don't need Darkrai after all.
So I guess all these Zygarde are their way of making up for no Pokémon Z game and going with Sun and Moon instead? Works for me.
And don't forget, Pokémon Go is coming. I wonder if it will work with My Nintendo?
Cut the "legendary pokemon are supposed to be hard to get" crap please. They haven't been hard to get for ages. The game mascot are practically given to you in the last few games and the remakes like ORAS practically give them to you once you complete the main story.
@DESS-M-8 No harm in trying, but I doubt it. When I was overseas, I could only download NA events on my NA DSi back in the day.
Ugh. That shiny Yveltal is ugly.
Hoping this comes to Europe...
@NinjaAceTrainer you take that back! Shiny bacon FTW!
Awesome! Can't wait to get Xerneas and Yveltal!
I happen to love that Shiny Yveltal look can't wait to get the shiny version.
Yes! Can't wait to download these!
Thanks for the heads up!
So UK gamers get screwed again thanks alot nintendon't
@kabama04 This seems to be the norm we pay the most for our games and we get diddly squat back.
They should do a distribution where you get only one event-only Pokemon. The difference being you are only allowed one mystery gift, it's random but it's always shiny.
