The Mythical Pokémon Arceus was distributed at retailers in Europe and North America back in August, and, for those that missed their chance, it returns with a special code distribution.
Those with Pokémon Omega Ruby, Pokémon Alpha Sapphire, Pokémon X, or Pokémon Y can enter the code ARCEUS2016 in Europe, or ARCEUS20 in North America, to receive the same Arceus that was distributed before.
Arceus will be Level 100 with the Multitype ability, which lets it become any Pokémon type while holding a corresponding Plate. These can be discovered at locations across Hoenn in Pokémon Omega Ruby and Pokémon Alpha Sapphire. The Mythical Pokémon’s moves will be Judgment, Recover, Hyper Beam, and Perish Song.
As always, if you downloaded it before as part of the earlier distribution you will be unable to receive another.
