Pokémon X/Y: Heracross, Pinsir Wi-Fi Distribution Events


Pokémon X and Y: Heracross, Pinsir Wi-Fi Distribution Events

The Pokémon Company International and Nintendo have today announced two new Pokémon Wi-Fi distribution events. From Wednesday, August 13 through Wednesday, September 17, participating GameStop stores across the United States and Canada will be distributing Bug/Fighting-type Pokémon Heracross and Bug-type Pokémon Pinsir.

Heracross was previously only encountered in Pokémon Y, while Pinsir was only previously encountered in Pokémon X. If two Pokémon distribution events aren’t enough, Pokémon trainers will also be able to receive special codes for each, to unlock their Mega Stone, starting on August 18.

Heracross’s Mega Stone is called Heracronite and Pinsir’s Mega Stone is called Pinsirite. When these two Pokémon hold their Mega Stone, they can Mega Evolve in battle to assist trainers with tremendous power. Mega Heracross’s ability becomes Skill Link, while Mega Pinsir’s ability, either Hyper Cutter or Mold Breaker, becomes Aerilate.

  1. I was wondering when we would get events to obtain the pokemon and mega stones not native to our games. This is good news. I have all of the Pokemon and megastones through the bribery of my family members but regardless I am happy about these events.
