Rare Shiny Pokémon distribution events hit GAME and GameStop


Shiny Legendary Pokémon will soon descend upon GAME and GameStop stores, in celebration of the anticipated arrival of Nintendo 3DS exclusives Pokémon X and Pokémon Y in just a few months time.

Beginning on August 19th in GameStop stores across North America, shortly followed by GAME stores in the United Kingdom on August 30th, fans with either Pokémon Black, White, Black 2 or White 2 versions can nab themselves three Shiny versions of the Legendary Pokémon Dialga, Palkia and Giratina.

Each Shiny Pokémon has unusual colouring that makes them extremely rare, and players will have to be quick as they’re only available for limited periods of time.

The only requirements being that players have the Pokédex within the game and have no more than 11 Wonder Cards in their possession.

The distribution schedule is as follows, for each respective country:

North America
Shiny Dialga: Monday 19th August – Sunday 8th September
Shiny Palkia: Monday 9th September – Sunday 29th September
Shiny Giratina: Monday 30th September – Sunday 20th October
