Now that the recent Gengar event has ended, Gamestop is hosting another mystery gift download for pokemon trainers. Yes, the mythical rock fairy type Diancie can now be obtained (legitimately) for the first time in North America. Simply visit any participating Gamestop to pick up the necessary download code for X and Y and then wait to transfer it to Omega Ruby or Alpha Sapphire to get the corresponding Mega Stone.
Pokemon X and Pokemon Y have a number of secrets, one of which included a number of locked rooms, which fans assumed would lead to the leaked legendaries. Instead, Diancie has proven to be a mythical pokemon, meaning the only way to capture the pokemon is to get it as an event download, or Pokemon Event. Diancie is the first of the new trio to see a release in North America. The genderless pokemon comes with the moves Moonblast, Reflect, Return, and Diamond Storm. Diancie comes with a Normal Gem and has the ability Clear Body.
The Diancie event opens today! Head to a participating Gamestop from now until November 16 to get the free download code and then download it using the Mystery Gift function in X or Y.
Pokemon Alpha Sapphire and Omega Ruby are just under a month away (November 21). It has recently been announced that the two can be purchased together in a duel package. This sensational deal comes with not one, but two. download codes for 100 potions in-game. Wow, talk about a worthy incentive Nintendo, really out doing yourself with such practical items. It should also be noted that the price for the duel set is exactly the same as buying both games individually. Both games look to be more than exciting for what they have, not for what comes with them. Not aware of all the exciting new mega evolutions? Feel free to check them out here.
This Diancie giveaway marks the third recent pokemon giveaway. For Halloween, trainers could download the rocky helmet wielding Pumkaboo, this giveaway was followed by the shiny, mega, stone wielding Gengar event that just ended to make way for Diancie. The Pokemon Company has been pushing recently to keep people attentive for the upcoming of Omega Ruby and Alpha Sapphire releases.
As an additional note, the ever-powerful Mewtwo has recently been announced as rejoining the Super Smash Bros. for Wii U cast in 2015 as a downloadable character. However, getting Mewtwo for the Wii U version of smash requires Super Smash Bros. for Nintendo 3DS. For more on the subject, click here.This will be the first official inclusion of Mewtwo in a smash bros game since his debut in Melee, as he was replaced by Lucario, who as since stayed.
Starting today, the mythical Pokemon Diancie can be downloaded for free by visiting any participating Gamestop. Once Alpha Sapphire and Omega Ruby come out next month the pokemon can be transferred over to obtain the corresponding mega stone. Will another giveaway begin during the release of the two games or will The Pokemon Company simply let the long-awaited remakes speak for themselves?
