It's almost a wrap for 2018's legendary Pokemon distribution

0

Reshiram and Zekrom are the penultimate duo

It's hard to believe the monthly legendary Pokémon distribution events are wrapping up soon. I'm sure it'll be no time at all before Nintendo starts the cycle anew, but for 2018, there are only two giveaways left. This month, it's Reshiram and Zekrom, and then we're closing out November with Ho-Oh and Lugia.

Here's how to get the black and white duo hailing from the Unova region:

In the UK, you have from October 5 - October 21, 2018 via Nintendo Network. Easy enough.

  • In Sun, Moon, Ultra Sun, or Ultra Moon, go to the main menu and pick "Mystery Gift."
  • Choose "Receive Gift."
  • Select "Get via Internet."
  • Go to any Pokémon Center and talk to the delivery person inside for Reshiram or Zekrom.

In the US, the distribution runs from October 19 - October 28, 2018 via Target.

  • In Sun, Moon, Ultra Sun, or Ultra Moon, go to the main menu and pick "Mystery Gift."
  • Choose "Receive Gift."
  • Select "Get with Code/Password," then "Yes" and "Yes."
  • Enter the code from Target.
  • Go to any Pokémon Center and talk to the delivery person inside for Reshiram or Zekrom.

The move stats for Zekrom and Reshiram

Despite good intentions, I definitely fell off the legendary distribution schedule. Once you let one month slip by you, the next missed opportunity comes and goes in an instant, and then they stockpile.

If I had stuck with this and the old monthly mythical 'mons, I would've had quite a collection.

Legendary and mythical Pokemon roster

Ah well. If there's one specific Pokémon I need to seek out, it's the fresh-faced Zeraora. To obtain the "lightning-fast" Mythical beast, swing by GameStop from October 19 - November 9, 2018 for a code. Zeraora is level 50 and knows Plasma Fists, Thunder Punch, Close Combat, and Thunder.
