Celebi & Jirachi Distribution Set For Nintendo Network In Europe


With Mew starting an exciting year of Mythical Pokémon distribution events, The Pokémon Company has confirmed that Celebi and Jirachi will be distributed over the Nintendo Network in Europe.

Celebi debuted in Game Boy Color’s Pokémon Gold and Pokémon Silver, and will be distributed between 1st – 24th March 2016.

The Psychic and Grass-type Mythical Pokémon will be Level 100 with the Nature Cure ability, which heals any status condition suffered when Celebi is switched out or a battle completed. It is confirmed that Celebi will have the moves Confusion, Recover, Heal Bell and Safeguard.

Whereas Jirachi first appeared in Pokémon Ruby and Pokémon Sapphire, and will be distributed between 1st – 24th April 2016.

The Steel and Psychic-type Wish Pokémon will also be Level 100 and has the Serene Grace ability, which doubles the chance of a move having an additional affect. It will have the moves Wish, Confusion and Rest – the three moves that it had when it had first debuted.

Each will be available to Pokémon X, Pokémon Y, Pokémon Omega Ruby or Pokémon Alpha Sapphire players, collected by accessing the Mystery Gift menu and selecting Receive Gift > Get Via Internet.
