As many fans know, Nintendo has been doing monthly giveaways and all sorts of distributions. For the first time in a long time Nintendo has started a Nintendo Network distribution for Shaymin, the mythical Pokemon from the days of Pokemon Diamond and Pearl.
Shaymin is available over Nintendo Network via Mystery Gift from July 1st until July 24th. In order to obtain it just be sure to connect to your wireless internet and make sure there’s an empty slot in your team. When you first obtain it, Shaymin will be in its base land Forme. In order to be able to use it’s Sky Forme just take it to Route 123 in Omega Ruby or Alpha Sapphire Version to get the Gracidea Flower. When holding this item Shaymin will transform.
Shaymin can be obtained in any of the current generation of games; X, Y, Omega Ruby, and Alpha Sapphire Versions.
There’s still more Mythical Pokemon giveaways happening throughout the year for the Pokemon 20 Year celebration. Next month players will be able to go to Gamestop for free Arceus code cards to obtain the god of the Pokemon world. Then, in September Victini will be available again over Nintendo Network, followed by Keldeo in the same fashion in October. In November Genesect will be available from Gamestop, and the final event will be in December, during which Meleotta will be given out over Nintendo Network.
These events are to celebrate 20 years of Pokemon games, trainers are being given a chance to get the mythical Pokemon from every generation. Most of these had very limited releases and have been difficult to obtain unless you kept up with distribution events during all the games. So be it your first or even your third, connect to Mystery Gift to get free legendaries and mythicals all year!
