Meloetta, the Melody Pokemon, with two forms. While in its Aria Form, Meloetta is a Normal/Psychic and when in its Pirouette Form, it becomes a Normal/Fighting type. The second, Pirouette Form is activated by using the move Relic Song during battle, but will revert back when switched out or at the end of the battle.

There has only been one past distribution event for Meloetta, in 2013 for Black 2 and White 2. So if you missed your chance to get Meloetta back then, now is your chance.

Manaphy, the Seafaring Pokemon, is a water type pokemon and the last pokemon introduced before the release of Platinum. This Pokemon is unique from other legendary pokemon in that it is the only legendary that can breed. However, all of Manaphy’s offspring are Phione, so this is really a  two for one distribution! Manaphy has the signiture move, Heart Swap, in which the user switches any increases/decreases in stats with its opponent. Like the others before it Manaphy had its own movie, Pokemon Ranger and the Temple of the Sea.

There were several Manaphy events over the years, but the one that comes to mind the first is the Pokemon Ranger Egg Event. Players who owned a copy of Pokemon Ranger could trade over a special Event Manaphy egg to any of the fourth generation games. So whether you took part in any of the earlier events or like me, you missed out on getting Manaphy from one of the earlier events, now is your chance.

PokeNews: Special Pokemon Moon and Sun Announcement

Five minutes before: Today at 8AM, Nintendo is making an announcement concerning the seventh generation of Pokemon games, Pokemon Moon and Sun!!! I wonder what the announcement is going to be about. Since the Nintendo Direct reveal back in February, there have been a ton of leaks and theories surrounding the next generation of games. This will be the first official announcement put out by Nintendo! I wonder what the announcement will be about!


So the big announcement was the trailer for the game, which finally revealed the three starters for the game!

Which so far look interesting, I’m especially interested in Litten, but a grass owl is a very interesting choice so, I also have my eye on Rowlet! I’m really curious to see their evolved forms though!

Hey Pokemon Trainers! I have a Special Pokemon Announcement just for you! For a limited time only you can get the Legendary Pokemon Zygarde through the Mystery Gift function in Pokemon Omega Ruby, Alpha Sapphire, Pokemon X, and Y! The Pokemon Company really snuck this one under the radar, a few days ago as there have been no announcements about it from them to date. However it is speculated to be in connection with the recent appearance of Zygarde in the Pokemon anime!

20160501_195131

This is a hard to find Pokemon! You’ll be the envy of your friends with this Zygarde.

 

Zygarde, the Order Pokemon, is a dragon/ground type first introduced in Pokemon X and Y. Trainers can catch this Pokemon in-game from deep within the Terminus Cave on Route 18 after entering the Hall of Fame, in either X or Y. Zygarde is said to monitor the conditions of the Kalos ecosystem from deep within the cave where it lives. If it senses an imbalance, Zygarde will appear and correct it by activating it’s secret power. Zygarde has three distinct forms: the 50% forme, 10% forme, and Complete forme. Zygarde is the only known Pokémon that can learn Land’s Wrath.

We’ve seen a host of Pokemon announcements and goodies from Nintendo since February, from the announcement of Moon and Sun to the release of digital release of the original Pokemon Red, Blue, and Yellow! We’ve got three legendary Pokemon under our belts already, but it’s time to spring forward and into the Fourth Generation of Pokemon games, with May’s Darkrai release!

darkrai

Darkrai, the Pitch-Black Pokemon, is a dark type introduced in Pokemon Diamond, Pearl, and Platinum. Darkrai is part of the Lunar Duo with fellow fourth Gen Legendary, Cresselia.  It is known to inhabit dreams, causing its victims to experience never ending nightmares. But, Darkrai isn’t all bad, the nightmares it causes are only created as a means of protecting itself. However, the nightmares caused by Darkrai can only be expelled by Cresselia and the Lunar Wing. It’s signature ability Bad Dream, which saps the HP of any sleeping pokemon, makes Darkrai a formidable opponent in any battle. Like the others before it Darkrai had its own movie, Rise of Darkrai.

Darkrai was released back in 2009, through a special item distribution event. During the event, players would receive the key item Member Card in Platinum through the Mystery Gift feature. The Member Card would then allow players to access the harbor in Canalave City and ride a ferry to Newmoon Island. Once there the player will encounter a booming voice and black out, once awake Darkrai will be added to your party. There was also a second event, where you could transfer over Darkrai from Pokemon Ranger:Shadows of Almia. So if you missed your chance to get Darkrai from one of the earlier events, now is your chance.

This event is expired, but feel free to read this post anyway! Also check the bottom of the post for information about future Pokemon 20 Legendary Distribution Events! Check back on the first of each month for information about the newest Pokemon 2016 Legendary Distribution Event Pokemon!

Here we are again with another PokeNews report! We are now three months into the Pokemon 20th Anniversary Legendary Pokemon Release Event! We’ve seen a host of Pokemon announcements and goodies from Nintendo since February, from the announcement of Moon and Sun to the release of Pokken Tournament! We’ve got two legendary Pokemon under our belts already, but it’s time to spring forward and into the Advanced Generation of Pokemon games, with April’s Jirachi release!

Jirachi, the Wish Pokemon, is a steel/psychic type from Pokemon Ruby, Sapphire, and Emerald. Jirachi hibernate for a thousand years, during this time it is said that any wish written on the notes attached to its head will be granted once it awakens. Jirachi is also the only Pokemon capable of learning Doom Desire, which is its signature move. Like Mew and Celebi before it Jirachi had its own movie, Jirachi: Wish Makerthe one with the pretty lullaby.

Jirachi has been released before in two seperate Ruby and Sappire Events, so this will be the first time Jirachi will be available outside of its original games. I had one as a child, but that was only because I owned an Action Replay. So if you missed your chance to get Jirachi from one of the earlier events, now is your chance.

PokeNews: Regis PokeBank Distribution

So I know I’m late with this, but better late than never! For a limited time only, trainers with the Pokemon Bank downloaded on their Nintendo 3DS system can now get Regirock, Regice, and Registeel through Pokemon Link!

RegiPokemonBank.jpg

The Legendary Golems, aka the Regi Trio, were first introduced in the original Gameboy Advanced games Ruby, Sapphire, and Emerald and are obtainable in game.

In the Hoenn Generation III games and the remakes, the player must first unlock the tombs which hold the three titans by solving the puzzle in the Sealed Chamber. Only after doing this will they then be obtainable. Regirock is found in the Desert Ruins on Route 111. To encounter Regirock, the player must walk two steps to the right, two steps down and then use Strength or walk two steps to the left, then two steps down and use Rock Smash. Regice is found in the Island Cave on Route 105, and to encounter it, the player must wait two minutes in front of the sign or walk a counterclockwise lap around the walls of the cave. Registeel is found in the Ancient Tomb on Route 120, and it is necessary to go to the middle of the room and use Fly or Flash to open its cave.

Bulbapedia

But as you can see…it’s a rather complicated process. So if you want to avoid all of that and you have the Pokemon Bank, you can get all three are the three at lv 50! Each Pokemon will come fully loaded with the following movesets:

PokeNews: Celebi Distribution

This event is expired, but feel free to read this post anyway! Also check the bottom of the post for information about future Pokemon 20 Legendary Distribution Events! Check back on the first of each month for information about the newest Pokemon 2016 Legendary Distribution Event Pokemon!

So here we are coming off of the Pokemon high that was February, with Pokemon 20 dishing out more goodies! Today, March is the second month of the Pokemon 20th Anniversary Legendary Pokemon Releases! This month’s legendary is none other than the Gen II Pokemon, Celebi!

celebi.gif

Non-Japanese second genners are still a little miffed about the unused GS Ball Event in the original Crystal version. I’m still a little sore about that to this day, but the remakes, Heart Gold and Soul Silver eventually kind of rectified the situation. During the event trainers would have received a mysterious GS Ball, which upon placing it in the shrine in the Ilex Forest would trigger the appearance of the legendary Pokemon Celebi.

Celebi, the Time Travel Pokemon, is a Psychic Grass type Pokemon. It has been released several times before, most recently for Pokemon X and Y in 2014 during a Pokemon Bank Event. So if you missed your chance to get Celebi from one of the earlier events, now is your chance.

The Celebi Event will be a Nintendo WiFi Distribution and will take place between March 1st to 24th 2016. In order to obtain Celebi, players must have a 3DS or New 3DS, and Pokemon X, Y, Omega Ruby, or Alpha Sapphire.

PokeNews: [Nintendo Pokemon Direct Announcement] Pokemon Moon and Pokemon Sun are a GO!

So I thought I’d document my thoughts before the Special 20th Anniversary Pokemon Direct Announcement…I really dunno what to think, earlier this week sites leaked that Nintendo obtained copyrights to Pokemon Moon and Pokemon Sun, speculating that these are the titles of the 7th generation of Pokemon games. A new game would be awesome, I dunno what to expect but I know it’s gonna be big!


 

Feb 27th 1996 was the exact date that Pokemon Red and Blue were released exactly 20 years ago. And to commemorate that they had a really sweet and nostalgic video showing people playing pokemon in all of its iterations.

HOLY SHIT A NEW GAME!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

pokemon_sun_moon.0.0They Officially announced Pokemon Moon and Pokemon Sun for 3DS later this year! I am so excited right now I can’t contain it! They also announced the digital release of the original Red, Blue, and Yellow with access to the Pokemon Bank so we can finally trade pokemon from the original games to the newer games!

Are you guys excited about Pokemon20? What about Pokemon Go? Feel free to comment and share, and as always THANK YOU for reading!

PokeNews: A New Legendary Pokemon!?

So while browsing my Facebook trending topics, I stumbled upon this blip on NintendoNews, about a brand new legendary Pokemon, Magearna. I dunno how I feel about this one…don’t we have enough legendary Pokemon already?

So apparently the Pokemon was created by humans over 500 years ago and will make it’s debut in a brand new Pokemon movie set to be released later this year. It kind of reminds me of a music box… I’m not overly thrilled by this announcement, but I will withhold serious judgement until more information is available about the Pokemon.

What do you think about the new Pokemon? Do you think GameFreak will even distribute the Pokemon outside of Japan? Are you guys excited about Pokemon20? What about Pokemon Go? Feel free to comment and share, and as always THANK YOU for reading!

PokeNews:Happy Birthday MewTwo

I know I’m really late with this, but I got caught up with a really tricky data recoding assignment…

So I know that February is Mew Distribution Month, but I want to take a moment to celebrate another special Pokemon event! As many Pokemon fans know, today, Feb. 6th is the birthday of the Legendary Pokemon MewTwo.

Mewtwo birthday

If any of you guys have ever been to the Pokemon Mansion on Cinnabar Island, then you may be familiar with a series of cryptic journals spread out throughout the building. The journals tell of the events surrounding the capture of Mew, the experimentation on Mew, and the subsequent birth and escape of MewTwo.

This event is expired, but feel free to read this post anyway! Also check the bottom of the post for information about future Pokemon 20 Legendary Distribution Events! Check back on the first of each month for information about the newest Pokemon 2016 Legendary Distribution Event Pokemon!

So for all of you guys out there that still play Pokemon, today, February 1st is a special day. Today marks the first day of the 11 month Pokemon 20th Anniversary’s Legendary Pokemon Releases. So If you missed the other Legendary Events in the past, 2016 is your year! To kick things off February is Mew Month!

Mew.gif

Mew- Pokemon #151

The Event only legendary, First Genners remember Mew for it’s complicated glitch cheat and for being the cause of MewTwo’s identity crisis in the first Pokemon movie. This cute pink Psychic type is one of my favorite legendary Pokemon, it’s such a versatile Pokemon with the ability to learn just about every Pokemon move (minus some Pokemon exclusives). I had a Mew in Gen 1, but because of the lack of forward trading beyond Gen 2, the poor dear was left behind in Pokemon Yellow. So finally after all these years I can finally obtain Mew!

The Mew Event will be a Serial Code Distribution and will take place between February 1st to 24th 2016 at participating U.S. Gamestop locations (I’m not sure about other countries). In order to use the distribution code, players must have a 3DS or New 3DS, and Pokemon X, Y, Omega Ruby, or Alpha Sapphire.
