With celebration of the launch of Pokémon X and Pokémon Y for the Nintendo 3DS family of systems, the first of three legendary character distribution events begins August 30th at participating Game stores across the UK.
Players can get their hands on Shiny versions of the Legendary Pokémon —Dialga, Palkia, and Giratina—starting with, Dialga, which was featured on the cover of the Pokémon Diamond video game. What makes this event extraordinary is that each of the distributed Legendary Pokémon, which are already difficult to get during gameplay, will be Shiny, meaning they have unusual colouring that is extremely rare. Each Shiny Pokémon will be available, one at a time, for only two weeks each, so Trainers will need to plan accordingly and head to a participating Game store if they want to add these extremely rare Legendary Pokémon to their Pokémon Black, Pokémon White, Pokémon Black 2, or Pokémon White 2 game.
Once Steel- and Dragon-type Dialga’s distribution ends on September 12th, Pokémon fans can get a Shiny version of Water- and Dragon-type Pokémon, Palkia, beginning September 13th and a Shiny version of the Ghost- and Dragon-type Pokémon, Giratina, beginning September 27th. Both of the subsequent events are also taking place at participating Game outlets across the UK. Palkia is the Legendary Pokémon featured on the cover of Pokémon Pearl, and the Giratina players will receive is the same Legendary Pokémon that appears in both Pokémon Diamond and Pokémon Pearl.
Fans who own Pokémon Black, Pokémon White, Pokémon Black 2, or Pokémon White 2 can bring their copy of the game and their Nintendo 3DS or Nintendo DS system to participating Game stores and get a Shiny Dialga, Shiny Palkia, and Shiny Giratina during the following dates:
