If you remember the unveiling of Volcanion in late 2015, kudos for the good memory. Details of Pokémon number 721 were given, but the actual distribution was only outlined as something to look forward to. It's taken ten months, but the Fire / Water type is now rolling out for the current-gen games.
It's a retail-led distribution, and so far there's information for North America and a handful of PAL countries.
- In the United States it can be obtained at Gamestop. It runs until October 31st.
- In Canada it can be obtained at EB Games. It runs until October 31st.
- In the UK it can be obtained at GAME stores. It runs until 23rd November.
- In Australia & New Zealand it can be obtained at EB Games until October 31st.
- In the Netherlands it can be found in Bart Smit, Intertoys & ToysXL stores until November 30th 2016.
- In Belgium, it can be found at Dreamland and Broze et Fun stores until November 30th.
You can get a look at its stats and promo video below.
- Level: 70
- Ability: Water Absorb
- Types: Fire/Water
- Moves: Steam Eruption
- Held Item: Assault Vest
Are you planning to get hold of a code for Volcanion? Let us know in the comments.

Thank god he's at Intertoys. At least that's a company with plenty of stores, so I won't have to drive half an hour to get him.
Definitely gonna get him though! Love the unique typing!
if anyone can get a pal volcanion code id be willing to make a trade for it.
I mean is this the first legit available distribution to get him? It's been a while haha
@Zoda_Fett It's the first one, yeah.
About time. Too bad it's a Gamestop distribution though... The workers there act like their tryibg to sell you a car or something if you express the slightest intetest in something.
Can someone get me an USA code? I will give you a landorus, Tornadus or a Palkia with hidden ability
I went and got cards for both my games from Gamestop, but they aren't working at the moment. Maybe Ninty is just being slow with turning them on, but I tried 2 of them and neither would work.
Nice for those who don't live in a country with such stores. Thanks Nintendo!!
Great ... Can't get it because I don't live in the US but have a American 3DS ;__;
Gamestop is just the worst, to wit, in terms of pricing, service, and in maintenance of their stock. If you must have these completely unnecessary store distributions, please stop making partnerships with them, Nintendo!
Not sure if this will get a "second chance" in the UK as by the time it finishes Sun and Moon will be out. Still, at least it's been given out for a longer period of time than other ones. And sat GAME too, far better than smyths as there is more of them and they don't run out of codes!
And if I'm currently living in a country that doesn't have the distribution, like Brazil for instance? How can me and my friends get Volcanion?
PSA: If you get one of these cards, the 'Q' looks like an 'O'. The printing is really bad and there is no tail on the 'Q'. Turns out both of my incorrect codes had Q not O.
Looks like I'll be heading to Gamestop at some point this week. I always feel bad for not buying something, but I usually can find better deals on games elsewhere.
Great can't get him as there is no GAME here in Ireland. :/
I kinda wonder why news is only breaking now? I picked up my Volcanion from GAME on October 1st.
so glad i have a gamestop right in between work & home. will be grabbing as many as they'll let me take and if my friends don't want em i'll be able to give em away
@RupeeClock for whatever reason today is the first day it's been made available in the US
I'll skip it then. I despise these retailer distribution methods.
Actually, we've known about Volcanion for nearly 3 years (since X and Y were hacked).
P.S. Hey, X and Y's 3rd anniversary is this Wednesday! Does time fly or what?
@King_Y If no one else gets you one, I'll see what I can do. I plan on getting myself a code, but I'll try to go by a Gamestop more than once and grabbing one for you.
Annoyingly they're still doing their 'one code per customer' thing pretty strictly... got two so far (one from each of the two GAME stores in my town) and have asked someone else to get me another pair for my other two games when they next go into town.
@NewAdvent Legendaries in general aren't banned from GTS... only event Pokemon with special ribbons (which may or may not be legendary)... some of the hacks you'll get on GTS have only had their ribbons removed, which isn't too bad... but others will have been modified more... you can usually spot the worst hacks quite easily by looking at the OT, location obtained, and nickname.
@FiveDigitLP thank you soo much :')
y'all only getting one per visit? that's weak, i've gotten like 6 from each distro this year i even tell em i have X and Omega Ruby and the rest are for my friends (which they are, im not tryna sell em or anything)
@BispoSnake Check sites of games shops in your country. One in my country (Poland) has these codes, maybe there is one in Brazil too.
@Niinbendo: I don't necessarily dislike Gamestop, it's more the fact that I don't want to impulse-buy anymore games right now. XD Plus, lately I've been able to find better deals online in general; I picked up Hyrule Warriors last month for under $40 off of Walmart's website.
It's been out in Europe since the 1st of October, but naturally you don't bother posting until it comes out in North America.
@Elanczewski, we had in the past but not anymore. Nintendo has left Brazil around one or two years ago unfortunately, so, we had some book stores (like Fnac for example) that provided those codes, but they don't have any relationship with Nintendo anymore. We need to import things (at a very high price) if we want something.
They could at least make this distribution global, so everyone is able to participate. Anyway, this is the last of the problems for people that are interested in Nintendo in my country =(
Are you able to get the code in Ireland?
Now all we need is AZ's Floette.
I'll be able to get my Volcanion on my way back from Uni tomorrow.
Managed to snag 8 from 4 different stores in my area
oh, yes, North America is only USA and Canada (Nintendo Logic...)
@FiveDigitLP would you be so kind to get me one <3 we don't have gamestop here
@Niinbendo Gamestop won't take an opened game back like that. They force you to get another copy of the same game or take store credit wich is usually 10% of what you bought it for or lower.
I hope they do a second chance for manaphy, that's the only one I missed (and phione by extension)
after of check in Serebii, they mentioned that in Mexico the distribution will be in "Gamers" Retail stores; well, at least, there "official" distribution in Mexico.
Got mine and preordered Pokemon Moon 🌝
@rushiosan I live in Guatemala and there's a local store distributing it. I'm baffled.
Exactly. And sometimes they won't even have any free bananas in stock.
I went to GameStop. They thought I was asking for Pokemon Go Plus. I tried explaining to them what this was but they had no idea what I was talking about.
@Tyranexx Don't feel bad. It's not your fault that GameStop have seized all the distribution codes
@Infuriatedape I have one spare.
@surrogatepeople cool. Do you want anything for it?
@Infuriatedape Na I don't care. I've got 2 of them and can get as many codes as I want if I can be bothered to go to Game. You can just have it.
thanks man if you just want to send it on to my email address its [email protected]
@Infuriatedape You should have it now. Enjoy.
I have an EU code but need a NA one. Anyone want to trade?
