Shiny Gengar distribution event set for GameStop stores


It will be a Halloween to remember this year, with The Pokémon Company having announced that they will run a Shiny Gengar distribution event with GameStop.

Pokémon X and Pokémon Y players can pick up a special code card from participating stores, allowing them to download the mischievous Shadow Pokémon to their party. It will come clutching a Gengarite Mega Stone meaning that you won’t have to hunt for one, letting it Mega Evolve during battle into Shiny Mega Gengar.

This event will run between 13th – 26th October 2014, with confirmation still to come as to which stores will be participating and the moves that Shiny Gengar will have.
