Pokemon is celebrating the 20th anniversary of its original release in Japan this year and one part of that has been the monthly legendary Pokemon distributions. We’ve already had three months worth and now with May here we have another, but this time there is so much more to be had.
Just starting off the month, you currently have access to five different legendary Pokemon that you can add to your Pokemon X, Y, Omega Ruby, and Alpha Sapphire games. The first is the actual monthly Pokemon that we knew about, which is Darkrai. However, rather than being simple to get through the Nintendo Network, this is like we saw with Mew where you have to get a card at GameStop for the Pokemon that will provide you a unique code.
The Pokemon that is easiest to get is Zygarde, who will be available for only a few more days until May 8. This is one that you simply need to go to Mystery Gift and choose to Receive Gift and then choose the internet option. By doing this, you will get the legendary Zygarde on your team.
The other trio that are currently available are the ones we told you about before, with the Kanto ancient birds trio of Articuno, Zapdos, and Moltres. The only stipulation is that you needed to have signed up for the Pokemon Trainer Club newsletter like we told you. If you did prior to the cutoff, you should check for an email that should have just come that will provide you with a code for each bird that you can use in your choice of game through Mystery Gift.
Also make sure to stay tuned later this month as we’ll have special distributions for Shiny Xerneas and Shiny Yveltal coming through the Nintendo Network as well.
