Here’s the 2016 Pokemon distribution event schedule

Monthly mythical ‘mons

It is Pokemon’s 20th anniversary this year, and as part of the celebration, you can expect a whole lot of distribution events for Pokemon X/Y and Pokemon Omega Ruby/Alpha Sapphire. Here’s when and where you’ll be able to get some rare pocket monsters:

  • Mew: February 1 – 24, 2016 at GameStop
  • Celebi: March 1 – 24, 2016 at Nintendo Network
  • Jirachi: April 1 – 24, 2016 at Nintendo Network
  • Darkrai: May 1 – 24, 2016 at GameStop
  • Manaphy: June 1 – 24, 2016 at Nintendo Network
  • Shaymin: July 1 – 24, 2016 at Nintendo Network
  • Arceus: August 1 – 24, 2016 at GameStop
  • Victini: September 1 – 24, 2016 at Nintendo Network
  • Keldeo: October 1 – 24, 2016 at Nintendo Network
  • Genesect: November 1 – 24, 2016 at GameStop
  • Meloetta: December 1 – 24, 2016 at Nintendo Network

Those dates are specifically for North America. There’s a similar page on the European website with the exact same Pokemon listed, but it says to “check back for details.” If the powers that be could find it in their hearts to send me all of these guys in Pokemon Shuffle, that would be real nice.
