Earlier today, it was revealed that Hoopa would be distributed for Pokemon Omega Ruby/Alpha Sapphire and X/Y starting on October 23 at GAME stores. We now have confirmation for North America as well. You’ll be able to nab Hoopa “later this year”, according to The Pokemon Company.

Here’s an overview of the distribution:

The Pokémon Company International is pleased to announce the upcoming character distribution of Mythical Hoopa. The distribution will allow fans to gain this special Level 50 Pokémon, which cannot be found during normal gameplay. Fans will need to have a copy of Pokémon X, Pokémon Y, Pokémon Omega Ruby or Pokémon Alpha Sapphire, and a system from the Nintendo 3DS family. Mythical Hoopa has the Magician Ability and is recognized by its two horns and the golden ring that adorns its body. The ring allows it to bend dimensions and move objects across great distances. Hoopa’s moves include Hyperspace Hole, Psychic, Astonish, and Nasty Plot.
