Not interested by that Mojo Jojo looking Pokemon.
I prefer some old Legendaries.
Now that’s the kind of events I was missing.
Hopefully Game Freak won’t screw up this distribution like they did with the last Zarude one where a lot of people didn’t get a code.
Now thats what I have been waiting for.
I also missed out on the Marshadow event (my mistake as I went to EB Games three times in the space of a month likely due to the busy release schedule and forgot to request a code every time!).
Other than those two though, I have virtually every Pokémon (though most will need to migrate from the DS/3DS games).
Whys it so hard to find link to sign up lol
@Patendo You'll need a trainer club account and enable the newsletter.
Finally! I've been waiting my entire life for Shiny Celebi. Ever since their appearance in Explorers of T/D/S.
I already have Zarude pretty much. Wonder if this counts as the second mythical of gen 8.. despite being the same as the original, but this time a scarf..
Would love them for the living Dex but I don’t have a relevant game to obtain them. Perhaps the codes will work in Diamond…
I’m signed up on three different accounts. Never get the codes. 😤
I really wish they'd do in-game events with these. Just getting them given to you sort of takes the 'mythical' feel out, you know?
@sanderev thank you! A shame this useful bit of info is missing in article and on links!!!
I hope we got them in Europe too !!
I've never had a Celebi in all my time playing Pokemon, so looking forward to getting this.
Cool, can't wait to not get it like the last one or the Legendary Bird distribution because I never get an email from them despite having the box for emails checked.
@sanderev and even still they won't send anything like last time they did this then you will have to contact support and have them give you a code instead 🤡
@CodyMKW They will send it when the movie is released, so next month.
@sanderev not if they didn't listen to all the people who never got a code last time because they never got an email even tho they subscribed to the newsletter
@CodyMKW Okay, I didn't know about that. I always got the codes in my Inbox. And I even got an e-mail about these ones as well. "Keep an eye on your inbox for e-mail containing special codes.."
Time to setup accounts for PokeDash....
Remember, even if you are signed in to receive emails, you got to actually open them and clic in some of the links for their system to notice you actually use it.
I'd normally do this but it seems like a lot of trouble when im not even likely to get a code according to most ppl
While there's other mythical and/or legendaries I would have loved to have instead of these two (I think I already have 4 Celebi's and two Zarude), I can't say no or complain about free Pokémon. It's really just Volcanion I need and another Zeraora would be nice
@Devlind I wasn't aware that was a requirement. I remember going back and forth with someone from support when I didn't get a code for Zarude initially and not once did they ever suggest you had to open emails and click on links in order to get codes. I rarely ever click on the links in the email. I barely even open them unless it's a distribution But I seem to recall having no issue getting codes before the Zarude fiasco. Having looked back, it seems every distribution has these issues to some degree
@Anti-Matter i just need the monkey to finish off my living dex.
don't need a shiny celebi though as i already went though the hassle of hunting one a few years ago
I have no idea what are you talking about.
I'm a casual player for Pokemon games, (almost) never dealing with hunting the rare or legendaries.
This is worth a shot I guess.
