Legendary Pokémon being distributed this month via Nintendo Network

Posted on May 3, 2016 by Jason Nason

I was surprised on Sunday morning. Knowing that I would have to venture to EB Games for this month’s Pokémon I popped in my copy of Pokémon X and went to the recieve gift option anyway. And to my surprise I got a gift.

Turns out thr Pokémon Company, in celebration of the debut of Pokemon the Series: XYZ, for a short time, you can get three powerful Legendary Pokémon from the Kalos region — Xerneas, Yveltal, and Zygarde — via Nintendo Network!

Not only that, the Xerneas and Yveltal you’ll receive are Shiny, making them incredibly rare, especially for a Legendary Pokémon! These Pokémon are all Lv. 100, and know their signature attacks as well as other powerful moves.

Each Pokémon will be available via Nintendo Network for one week only:

  • May 2–8: Zygarde
  • May 11–17: Shiny Xerneas
  • May 20–26: Shiny Yveltal

Don’t miss your chance to get this trio of amazing Legendary Pokémon while you can!
