Get an Extremely Rare Shiny Dialga, Palkia and Shiny Giratina For a Limited Time at GameStop Stores
In celebration of the highly anticipated launch of Pokémon X and Pokémon Y for the Nintendo 3DS family of systems, the first of three Legendary character distribution events begins August 19 only at participating GameStop stores in the United States. Players can get their hands on Shiny versions of powerful and hard-to-get Legendary Pokémon--Dialga, Palkia, and Giratina--starting with Dialga, which was featured on the cover of the Pokémon Diamond video game. What makes this event extraordinary is that each of the distributed Legendary Pokémon, which are already difficult to get during gameplay, will be Shiny, meaning they have unusual coloring that is extremely rare. Each Shiny Pokémon will be available, one at a time, for only three weeks each, so Trainers will need to plan accordingly and head to a participating GameStop location if they want to add these extremely rare Legendary Pokémon to their Pokémon Black, Pokémon White, Pokémon Black 2, or Pokémon White 2 game.
Once the Steel- and Dragon-type Dialga’s distribution ends on September 8th, Pokémon fans can get a Shiny version of the Water- and Dragon-type Pokémon Palkia, beginning September 9, and a Shiny version of the Ghost- and Dragon-type Pokémon Giratina, beginning September 30. Both of the subsequent events are also taking place at participating GameStop stores in the United States. Palkia is the Legendary Pokémon featured on the cover of Pokémon Pearl, and the Giratina players will receive is the same Legendary Pokémon that appears in both Pokémon Diamond and Pokémon Pearl.
Fans who own Pokémon Black, Pokémon White, Pokémon Black 2, or Pokémon White 2 can bring their copy of the game and their Nintendo 3DS or Nintendo DS system to participating GameStop stores and get a Shiny Dialga, Shiny Palkia, and Shiny Giratina during the following dates:
- Shiny Dialga: Monday, Aug. 19, 2013–Sunday, Sept. 8, 2013
- Shiny Palkia: Monday, Sept. 9, 2013–Sunday, Sept. 29, 2013
- Shiny Giratina: Monday, Sept. 30, 2013–Sunday, Oct. 20, 2013
Players will need to have the Pokédex within the game and have no more than 11 Wonder Cards in their possession.
In Canada, the Shiny Dialga character distribution event begins Friday, Aug. 30, at participating EB Games locations. Canadian players can get a Shiny Palkia beginning Friday, Sept. 13, and a Shiny Giratina beginning Friday, Sept. 27, at participating EB Games stores across Canada.
