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!

shaymin

Shaymin, the Gratitude Pokemon, is a grass type (grass/flying when in Sky form) introduced in Pokemon Diamond, Pearl and Platinum. While it doesn’t evolve and cannot breed, Shaymin has the ability to switch between two forms: Land and Sky. This ability is activated using the Gracidea key item. However, Shaymin will transform from Sky to Land at night, if the Pokemon is frozen, or if it is deposited into a PC.

Shaymin has been released through event before. So if you missed your chance to get Shaymin from one of the earlier events, now is your chance.

PokeNews: Manaphy 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!

Here we are again with another PokeNews report! We are now five 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 digital release of the original Pokemon Red, Blue, and Yellow! And last month we had not one, but four seperate Pokemon distributions!!!

We’ve got four legendary Pokemon under our belts already, but it’s time to spring forward with another legendary from the Fourth Generation of Pokemon games, with June’s Manaphy release!

manaphy.gif

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.

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: Mew 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 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.

I herd u liek…Hoenn: An Ode to Pokemon II

2016 marks 20 years of Pokemon…Twenty years, has it really been that long?! Twenty years later and I still love Pokemon. I don’t think I’ll ever not love Pokemon…So with that being said, nostalgia has struck again, as I have said before in an earlier post, Johto and the Gen 2 Pokemon games were my first introduction to the Pokemon world…Johto is where I fell in love with Pokemon, but it wasn’t until Gen 3 that I really began to get serious about it.

Prior to the release of Omega Ruby and Alpha Sapphire (ORAS), the third generation of Pokemon was generally panned upon it’s initial release. Some fans even credit Ruby and Sapphire for bringing about the beginning of Franchise Fatigue.
