This is certainly the year of Pokémon, what with the release of Pokémon GO and the impending release of Pokémon Sun and Moon, but the main games have been getting some love, too. For the past several months, a new Legendary or Mythical Pokémon has been distributed to the 3DS games, offering players a chance to get rare Pokémon they otherwise wouldn't have access to. Back in May, Darkrai was being distributed exclusively through Gamestop stores, and now the Pokémon Company is giving players another chance to snag the Pitch-Black Pokémon.

Darkrai can now be obtained over wi-fi in any of the four main series 3DS games, and it will be available until 31st October. Just put in the code "Darkrai20" and it's yours, though bear in mind that it's the same Darkrai that was given out in May, so those of you that picked it up back then can't get it twice. Still, it's nice that fans are being given another chance at picking this up, and it'll no doubt be a helpful ally in Sun & Moon when they release later.

What do you think? Did you already get this? What's your favorite Pokémon? Drop us a comment in the section below.
