You have a second chance to get a Genesect in Pokemon X & Y or ORAS

US, Europe, Australia

If you’re at all interested in picking up Genesect and missed him the first go-around in 2016 (or before that, even!), you still have another chance.

If you own Pokemon X/Y or ORAS, just use the code “GENESECT20” if you’re in North America, or “GENESECT2016” if you’re in Europe. You can get it by way of this code method until February 28, 2017, and if you already picked up the creature from the anniversary giveaway last year, you can’t acquire him again.

Game Freak has mastered the art of “weird ass distribution methods.” They’ve even gone so far as to give out Mega Stones this way, much to the ire of the community.
