May is teeming with good news for Pokemon fans. After the announcement of Darkrai as giveaway Pokemon for May, The Pokemon Company is also distributing three legendary Pokemon as in-game download promotions.
Unlike Darkrai whose availability was announced on the last week of April, the distribution of the three legendary Pokemon was learned through the fansite, Serebii. Players will be able to download a rare form of Zygarde and special versions of Pokemon Xerneas and Yveltal to their Nintendo 3DS games throughout May.
Polygon wrote that dragon/ground-type Zygarde is available in North America from May 1 until May 8 for download as Mystery Gift on Nintendo Network. The level 100 Pokemon will be in its "50 percent forme" – one of the five “forms” that Zygarde can transform into. Four of these “forms” will be seen first in the Pokemon XY& Z anime.
Shiny Xerneas on the other hand will be out on May 11 to 17 and Yveltal on May 20 to 28. The three legendary Pokemon are far easier to grab because they can be downloaded through Wi-Fi, not codes like Darkrai. The three legendary Pokemon will be great addition to players’ Pokemon collections on their copies of Pokemon Omega Ruby, Pokemon Alpha Sapphire, Pokemon X, and Pokemon Y.
The surprise distribution of Zygarde started in Europe, followed by South America then North America, according to Comicbook. It is unclear why Pokemon Company did the silent distribution. But, some think that it might be some kind of promotion for the Pokemon Anime where currently Zygarde appears in Cell Forme.
So what are you waiting for? Grab Zygarde and Darkrai now!
