Next Shiny Xerneas Event Takes Place At Hyper Japan Festival 2016


Nintendo has announced that a special distribution event for Shiny Xerneas will take place at Hyper Japan Festival 2016.

This will be available to Pokémon X, Pokémon Y, Pokémon Omega Ruby, and Pokémon Alpha Sapphire, and is the Level 100 Legendary Pokémon that has been seen in similar distribution events in the past few months.

Shiny Xerneas will have its signature Fairy Aura ability – which increases damage dealt by Fairy-type attacks by a third for all Pokémon in battle – and the moves Geomancy, Moonblast, Aromatherapy and Focus Blast.

To receive a download code, attendees will need to take a walk down memory lane in the Year of Pokémon area on the Nintendo booth.

Hyper Japan Festival 2016 takes place between Friday 15th – Sunday 17th July 2016 at the Olympia in London.
