In celebration of the upcoming launch of Pokémon X and Pokémon Y for the Nintendo 3DS, the first of three character distribution events has launched today at participating Game stores across the UK. Players can get their hands on Shiny versions of the Legendary Pokémon, Dialga, Palkia, and Giratina, starting with, Dialga, which featured on the cover of Pokémon Diamond.
What makes this event extraordinary is that each of the distributed Legendary Pokémon, which are already difficult to get during gameplay, will be Shiny, meaning they have unusual colouring that is extremely rare. Each Shiny Pokémon will be available, one at a time, for only two weeks each, so Trainers will need to plan accordingly and head to a participating Game store if they want to add these extremely rare Legendary Pokémon to their Pokémon Black, Pokémon White, Pokémon Black 2, or Pokémon White 2 game.
Fans who own Pokémon Black, Pokémon White, Pokémon Black 2, or Pokémon White 2 can now take their copy of the game and their Nintendo 3DS or Nintendo DS system to participating Game stores and get a Shiny Dialga. Players will need to have the Pokédex within the game and have no more than eleven Wonder Cards in their possession. A Shiny Palkia will be available in the same way for two weeks from the 13th September, and a Shiny Giratina from the 27th September. Electronic Theatre will keep you updated with all the latest details about the Pokémon videogame franchise.
