Pokemon Alpha Sapphire

A new trailer is online to celebrate Keldeo’s arrival in Pokemon Omega Ruby, Alpha Sapphire, X, and Y as the latest Mythical Pokemon distribution. Watch it below.

GameStop stores in the United States distributed Darkrai in the Pokemon 3DS games earlier in the year. Fans now have another opportunity to obtain the Mythical Pokemon.

Through October 31, Pokemon X/X and Pokemon Omega Ruby/Alpha Sapphire players can receive Darkrai by using the code “Darkrai20”. It’s the same one that was given out at GameStop, so if you received that one, you won’t be able to get this one as well.


Update: The same Volcanion has been announced for Norway as well. It will be available for download from Gamestop and Neo Tokyo stores, as well as serial codes from Gamzone and Spillsjappa, all available from October 1 through November 23.

Starting in October, Volcanion, the final Mythical Pokemon from generation 6, will be distributed in various countries. Details have now been announced for the distribution in Sweden: Gamestop, Webhallen and Spel & Sånt stores will carry codes that allow you to get Volcanion.

Interestingly, this “Swedish” Volcanion will be similar to the one distributed in Japan in that it carries the Rage Candy Bar item and knows Mist – the one that’ll be distributed in other Western countries carries an Assault Vest and knows Explosion instead.


As we mentioned yesterday, Victini is now available as the latest Mythical Pokemon distribution in X, Y, Omega Ruby, and Alpha Sapphire. Watch the official trailer below.

As with Mew before it, if you missed your chance to get a Darkrai code from participating stores in Europe, you can now get the Mythical Pokemon from the comforts of your own home. Simply start up your copy of Pokemon X, Y, Omega Ruby or Alpha Sapphire, select Mystery Gift, Receive Via Code and enter the code “DARKRAI2016”. You can then pick up Darkrai in your game from the delivery girl in any Pokemon Center.

Note that if you already received Darkrai before via a code from a store back in May, you can’t get it again with this method.


Update: Bumped to the top. Victini is now available in North America.

The latest Pokemon distribution is now live in Europe and Australia. Victini can be received in X, Y, Omega Ruby, and Alpha Sapphire.

Just follow these steps to nab Victini:

1. Mystery Gift
2. Receive Gift
3. Get Via Internet

The distribution runs until September 24. We’ll let you know when it’s live in North America.
