To celebrate 20 years of Pokémon, a special Mythical Pokémon Shaymin arrives as a Mystery Gift via Nintendo Network for Trainers in the U.S.
From July 1 to July 24, owners of Pokémon Omega Ruby/Alpha Sapphire or Pokémon X/Y can download the level 100 Grass-type Gratitude Pokémon, which comes safely snuggled inside a Cherish Ball holding the Micle Berry. In addition, it knows the moves Seed Flare, Aromatherapy, Substitute, and Energy Ball and has the Ability Natural Cure.
“Shaymin can dissolve toxins in the air to instantly transform ruined land into a lush field of flowers.”
While Shaymin arrives in its Land Forme, Trainers can take the Pokémon to a family on Route 123 in their copy of Pokémon Omega Ruby or Pokémon Alpha Sapphire to receive the Gracidea flower, a special item capable of changing Shaymin into its alternate Sky Forme.
Shaymin first became available in the Flower Paradise of Pokémon Diamond Version and Pokémon Pearl Version on Nintendo DS.
In June, the Seafaring Water-type Pokémon Manaphy was distributed — also via Mystery Gift. Starting August 1, participating GameStop locations will begin distributing limited-time serial codes for a level 100 Arceus.
How to receive Shaymin:
