The Pokémon Company has announced that a Marshadow distribution event will soon run at “participating retailers” across Europe, news that is surprisingly unspecific at this point in time.
There will be more than enough opportunity to retrieve the Mythical Pokémon though, with Marshadow stepping out from the shadows for those with a serial code that can be collected at your local retailer from Sunday 1st October – Monday 13th November.
This is the first chance to get Marshadow in Pokémon Sun and Pokémon Moon, the Gloomdweller Pokémon having become the only known Fighting and Ghost-type Pokémon.
When it attacks in battle, the Mythical Pokémon’s burning fighting spirit sees its body turn green. The Level 50 Marshadow will come with its signature attack – Spectral Thief – that not only deals damage to its target but steals their stat boosts, too.
It will also be holding its special Z-Crystal Marshadium Z, allowing Trainers to unleash its signature Soul-Stealing 7-Star Strike Z-Move. With the Technician ability, Marshadow will also know the moves Close Combat, Force Palm, and Shadow Ball.
