Missed out on your chance to grab a free Arceus earlier this year? No problem! You can pick the mythical Pokémon up until the 31st.
At the beginning of 2016, Pokémon Company started celebrating their 20th anniversary by giving out free legendary pokémon. But, if you are like me and didn’t have X, Y, Alpha Sapphire or Omega Ruby, you probably missed a few. Well, until December 31st of 2016, you can have another shot at picking up Arceus. Unlike the other legendaries, which would just be downloaded from the Mystery Gift section of your game, you’ll need a code.
Don’t be afraid! This isn’t a first come, first serve deal. And I used it this afternoon when I stumbled on the news. Arceus comes straight from Pokémon Company. If you are in the United States, use the code: ARCEUS20 in the Mystery Gift menu. For my friends across the pond in Europe, you’ll use the code: ARCEUS2016.
However! This is ONLY for people who were unable to grab Arceus during the event that happened earlier this year. If you already claimed him/her/it/the lord, this code won’t work for you. You’ve been warned. So don’t blame me if you don’t a second one.
And, the same rules apply with the other event Pokémon. You can only redeem Arceus on X, Y, and ORAS. Sorry all you Sun and Moon players, but looks like there is some more training to do before you can grab other legendaries. But if you use the Pokémon Bank, you should be able to bring anyone into your game in January. So there’s that, right?
And, before I go, don’t forget to pick up Meloetta this month too! No code required. Just search for gifts in the Mystery Gift menu and she should be there until the 31st. Two legendaries in one month! Pokémon Company, why are you so good to us?
