With Pokémon in its 20th Anniversary year we've been getting one Mythical Pokémon every month for the current-gen games, each available for a few weeks.
This month's offering is Shaymin, which is up for grabs until 24th July and originated in Pokémon Diamond & Pearl. It's level 100 in this distribution, of course, and has the following moves and abilities.
You can grab this for X, Y, Omega Ruby and Alpha Sapphire; if you're not sure of all the steps to do this the official website has a handy visual guide.
It's also worth noting that the Pokémon: Giratina & the Sky Warrior movie - which features Shaymin - can be watched on Pokémon TV and various regional sites and apps for the series.
Will you be grabbing this Shaymin? Let us know in the comments.
Thanks for the reminder I completely forgot about it.
Got it, and the gracidea for the sky forme
Awesome! Will pick it up later today, I've never had Shaymin
I felt really awkward after catching my first and that dreaded question popped up. I was always told naming and shaymin was bad etiquette.
Now I can participate in my favorite internet activity: Klink Shaymin.
Wow, a level 100 grass porcupine Pokemon ?
I almost forgot all about this. Thank you NintendoLife.
EDIT: And I think with that, I've got all the Mythical Pokemon on offer for 2016.
I missed out on manaphy so I'm getting this asap
@chiefeagle02 They are still offering them until November I think.
You guys should update your link to be the correct month:
Right now it links to March's Pokemon. Not a big deal, but thought you'd like to know.
Remember to get a gracidea guys!
@Kimyonaakuma what how?
@Yorumi Ah thanks
@FiveDigitLP It is done! Thanks for the heads up.
Thanks for the reminder. Got ours this morning. ^^
I know this is probably a really stupid question, but why give us a Lv. 100 Pokemon with crap moves? Is the point that we use TMs etc on it to create a powerhouse?
@Yorumi Oh... OK. So they just look nice? Cool.
Thanks for the reminder! I'll be picking these up in both Y and Omega Ruby soon.
Also, as a few have mentioned, don't forget to grab the Gracidea Flower in order to access Shaymin's Sky Forme. Here's how to get them (thanks Bulbapedia!):
X/Y - This can be obtained from a female NPC at the Snowbelle City Pokemon Center.
Omega Ruby/Alpha Sapphire - On Route 123, the Berry Master's son (found in their house) will give the player a Gracidea.
In both cases, you need Shaymin in your party in order to trigger receiving the item.
I keep missing these. Will get this one asap.
I've always hated Shaymin's design.
@alasdair91 For the past few Pokemon, I'd agree. But all of the moves that come with this Shaymin seem immediately useful. Only thing I'd do is replace something with air slash.
@Knuckles They are offering one Mythical Pokemon per month. However, I've already got all of the upcoming Pokemon (it helped to participate in promotions since Black and White).
I had no idea about these as I clearly missed out on the previous ones. Nevertheless, my daughter was happy to get this little Pokémon. I don't really understand Pokémon, but she is happy to explain it to me and I'm happy to pretend that I'm comprehending what she's explaining.
I think that's one of the better Pokémon movies. Nothing beats "Pokémon the Movie 2000" as far as I'm concerned, though.
@Yorumi Thank you for the heads up! While I've completed the main game in Omega Ruby, I have yet to play my copy of Y (thanks to Fire Emblem and Bravely Default). And since I've never had a Shaymin before, I don't think I would've known where to get the Gracidea flower for Shaymin's Sky Forme (unless they tell you this in the games somehow). That would've been criminal because his Sky Forme is my favorite. And the movie is pretty awesome, too: I saw it sometime last year.
@GrailUK You win everything
@chiefeagle02 Sorry, I thought when you said all mythical pokemon on offer in 2016, you thought this was the last one. Yeah, I've done all of the mystery events too since back on HeartGold.
I still remember using the Tweaking glitch to catch one and Darkrai in Diamond. Ahh, the nostalgia.
Really happy to finally have this cutie again <3
(as Shaymin and Darkrai could never be caught legitimately they can't be transferred to X&Y)
@Knuckles No harm, no foul.
