Shaymin Event Now Live On Nintendo Network


The Pokémon 20th anniversary celebrations continue, with a Shaymin special distribution event now live on Nintendo Network.

This is the latest Mythical Pokémon distribution event to run this year, and will allow players to receive Shaymin with the same moves that it had when it debuted in Pokémon Diamond and Pokémon Pearl.

It will be Level 100 with the Natural Cure ability – which heals any status condition when switched out or a battle is completed – and the moves Seed Flare, Aromatherapy, Substitute, and Energy Ball.

Those that take Shaymin to a family on Route 123 in Pokémon Omega Ruby or Pokémon Alpha Sapphire can receive the Gracidea flower, which can change the Mythical Pokémon into Sky Forme.

Shaymin is available between 1st – 24th July 2016, to players with Pokémon Omega Ruby, Pokémon Alpha Sapphire, Pokémon X, or Pokémon Y.
