A series of 3-5 minute shorts called Pokemon Generations has been announced. The episodes will cover notable events, such as Red Vs Blue, awakening of Regigigas, the red Gyrados of Rage Lake, and more from throughout the main video games of the series, up to X & Y. These shorts, 18 in total, will be posted to Youtube every week or so until December 23rd. The first of these is due to air on the 16th of September, this Friday.
3 Mythics in 1 month!
From now until October 9th, you can get a Hoopa, an inter-dimensional genie prankster by using Mystery Gift> Recieve>Get With Code and putting in "2016HOOPA".
The Mythic for this month's 20th anniversary event is Keldeo, the kelpy and musketeer inspired pokemon. This one you receive through the "Via Internet" function in Mystery Gift. Have a move tutor teach Keldeo Secret Sword and Keldeo will to change to it's Resolute form. For ORAS, the move tutor is in a southwest cafe in Mauville city. For XY the tutor is in Snowbelle city.
Lastly, You can visit a Gamestop or area equivalent to receive a code for a Volcanion. This distribution doesn't start in the US until October 10th.
It was announced earlier today that Sun and Moon will have a special demo version like ORAS had. You'll play through the demo with a special Greninja which will have a new ability allowing ti to change form if it KOs a pokemon. You will be able to transfer this Greninja to the main game later on. This demo goes live October 18, one month away from the November 18 launch.
More info was also revealed in the same trailer. Such as middle evolutions of the starters, you're PC pokemon will have things to do other then sit there in cyberspace, an semi-online event plaza, and mega evolution is still in.
Also, changes to PvP battle rules and mechanics hopefully means that the championship scene should be more entertaining to watch. Namely, timer stalling now hurts the staller, and the rules as to which pokemon can be used are much stricter; being reserved only to pokemon found in the Alola region. Changes like these are most likely due to the last Championship event a month or so ago. Teams were highly identical (has been a recurring problem in the games meta) and some players abused the time stalling method during the final matches.
Sun and Moon are now available.
I picked Sun since my bro is gonna go for Moon.
Picking up mine tomorrow, preordered the 2 pack so I'm getting both.
Last month of the year and 3 mythics are scheduled to be given out this time.
If you didn't get Arceus during it's month, a second chance distribution is being offered. Use "receive through code" Mystery Gift and put in "ARCEUS20". This one lasts until December 31.
These two mythics are for X/Y and ORAS.
The first Mythic distribution for Sun and Moon is live. Scan the following QR code to begin the process.
After you've scanned the code, go to Hau'oli City's Mall to collect Magearna after becoming the Champion in the game.
This QR code will not expire
Also don't forget to use Mystery Gift for Sun and Moon right away so you can get a Munchlax with a pretty interesting move set and holding Snorlium. That promotion ends sometime in January.
Edit: added Magearna details.
The final event related to the 20th Anniversary has begun. If you weren't able to get Genesect from the store distribution awhile back, you can now by inputting the code GENESECT20 into the "Receive With Code" option of Mystery Gift for ORAS and XY.
Genesect has unique held items associated with it. You can acquire these by showing Genesect to certain people. In ORAS show Genesect to a street thug in the second floor of Mauville City. In XY, show Genesect to a hiker in the fossil lab of Ambrette Town. They will give you various drives that when held by Genesect, alter the type of its signature move.
