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, 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.
