Two New Pokemon Giveaways Coming Soon!

Today, the Pokémon Company announced that there would be two new Pokémon giveaways coming to Pokémon X and Pokémon Y. One, a shiny Pokémon; the other, the highly anticipated legendary Pokémon.

A Shiny Gengar holding a Gengarite Mega Stone will be available at participating GameStop stores between October 13th and October 26th. Like the Heracrossite and Pinsirite Mega Stone giveaway, there will be special code cards that players will need to pick up at GameStop.

Diancie, the new legendary Fairy- and Rock-type Pokémon finally has an official release! Make a return to GameStop between October 27th and November 16th for a code to receive this legendary Pokémon. Once you receive this Diancie, you can transfer it to Pokémon Omega Ruby or Pokémon Alpha Sapphire on November 21st and beyond. In addition, it has been announced that you obtain the Diancite Mega Stone in Pokémon Omega Ruby and Pokémon Alpha Sapphire during in-game play.


Pokémon Omega Ruby and Pokémon Alpha Sapphire are set for release on November 21st in Japan, North America, and Australia, and November 28th in Europe.

My Opinion:
Fantastic news! Diancie has been on everyone’s radar for some time and now players can finally add it to their Pokedex. And a shiny Gengar? Very nice. I do like how the Diancie giveaway is ending right before Pokémon Omega Ruby and Pokémon Alpha Sapphire come out. What irks me a bit is that they are codes with limited quantities and only at GameStop. Does the Pokémon company have a deal with them? Interesting since all these giveaways are only at that store…
