The 'Year of Legendary Pokémon' celebrations are finally coming to an end, with the final free distributions now fully underway. This final giveaway allows players to get their hands on Lugia and Ho-oh.

These legendary Pokémon first appeared way back in Pokémon Gold And Silver on the Game Boy Color, starting the now-consistent trend of legendary beasts appearing on each game's front cover. Each will be available in either Pokémon Ultra Sun and Ultra Moon or Pokémon Sun and Moon, and their stats will differ depending on which game you plan to send them to.

Lugia is exclusive to the Sun versions of the games, while Ho-oh is exclusive to the Moon games. Here's all the info you need on which creature you'll be able to get your hands on:


US players will need to visit their local participating GameStop store between now and 25th November to receive the Pokémon; UK players must visit their local GAME, and codes are being given out at GameStop in Ireland until the very same date.

Will you be adding either of these Pokémon to your team? Which one's your favourite? Tell us below.
