    "2018 Will Be Legendary!"
    Recently, The Pokémon Company put up an announcement on their website (which when clicked redirects to another website), announcing the "Year of Legendary Pokémon". It is supposedly going to be a yearlong event that includes Legendary Pokémon Distributions, activities, and more!
    This event will be spread across all of The Pokémon Company's currently supported media and games.
    • Handheld games: monthly legendary distributions at select partners
    • Trading cards: new sets focused on Legendary Pokémon in 2018
    • Mobile Games: Shuffle will have Dialga / Palkia stages, GO will have promotions
    • TV: monthly movies featuring legendaries on the Pokémon TV app
    For the monthly Legendary Pokémon Distribution, this is the current schedule:
    • February – Dialga or Palkia in GAME in the UK & Gamestop in the US
    • March – Regigigas or Heatran
    • April – Raikou or Entei
    • May – Xerneas or Yveltal
    • June – Shiny Zygarde
    • July – Tornadus or Thundurus
    • August – Kyogre or Groudon
    • September – Latios or Latias
    • October – Reshiram or Zekrom
    • November – Ho-Oh or Lugia
    It is to be noted that in the artwork at the top of this post, there are no Mythical Pokémon or either of the Mews to be seen.

    It's actually pretty great, the one you get from Mystery Gift is dependent on the one you can't get from wormholes in your version. So pretty much giving you the exclusives from the other game.

    Anxiety of having to go to a store and ask for Pokémon codes is awkward

    It means Sun, Moon, Ultra Sun, and Ultra Moon, as well as the spin-off titles such as Pokémon Go.

    my problem is when the store dude shits on you, by saying "only 1 code per customer" even if you several game versions while some minutes ago you seen a customer grabbing like 10 of them because the store dude liked the guy

    Not that it's a bad thing as I'm a HUGE poke nerd.

    One, you are late. Two, it's not "and", it's "or", you can get ONLY ONE of each pair!

    Nice, try to do what I always do during these events; get extra Gamestop codes for people who don't have a Gamestop nearby.

    Man, still need to Ultra Moon yet...

    It's ok, just don't like it being confusing, besides the "and" part, it's a pretty good post!

    PS: For anyone who can get a code, dump the mystery gift if you have CFW so everyone can inject the wonder card in their game if they can't get their hands on a code!:D

    Basically this is a shiny Zygarde and a whole bunch of Pokémon that have been special until they got thrown at you in every endgame.

    The actually rare Legendaries like Mew, Celebi and Arceus haven't even been mentioned in the announcement.
