Magmar and Electabuzz Pokémon X & Y UK distribution event announced


Easter will see specialist retailer GAME partner with The Pokémon Company International to host a distribution event to promote Pokémon X, Pokémon Y, and the Pokémon Trading Card Game: XY expansion which launched back in February.

From Friday 4th April, players with Pokémon X can receive Magmar free upon request in all GAME stores across the United Kingdom, whilst those with Pokémon Y copies can claim Electabuzz. Both first appeared within the original Pokémon Red and Pokémon Blue, and come holding a Magmarizer and Electirizer item respectively. If traded whilst holding these items, Electabuzz will evolve into Electivire, and Magmar into Magmortar.

Alongside this, Pokémon Trading Card Game fans can also receive a free Pokémon TCG: XY special sampling pack while stocks last, which includes a special foil Pikachu card and an additional card from the Pokémon TCG: XY expansion.

The Pokémon Company International will support such promotion with a TV campaign to showcase how Pokémon TCG and the accompanying games are part of the same world, with spots airing on CiTV, Cartoon Network, Disney XD and Sky Kids between April 7th – April 27th.
