We’ve seen a host of Pokemon announcements and goodies from Nintendo since we started this thing back in February, from the announcement of Moon and Sun to the release of Pokken Tournament!

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.

I don’t know about you guys, but I’ve been waiting all year for this Pokemon to be released! Genesect, the Paleozoic Pokemon, is a bug/steel type. While, it doesn’t evolve, Genesect can utilize Drives that change the type of elemental blast when using the move Techno Blast. This Pokemon was created through several modifications devised by Team Plasma and it is the last Pokemon of the Unova region.

Genesect was released only once, through a WiFi event for Black 2 and White 2. So if you missed your chance to get Genesect back in 2012, now is your chance.
