Shiny Sinnoh Legendaries at GameStop - Pure Nintendo

Shiny Sinnoh Legendaries at GameStop
Jake Spafford

Starting August 19, you can take your copy of Pokemon Black/ White or Black 2/ White 2 to a local GameStop and get not 1, not 2, but all three of the title legendaries from Sinnoh (Pokemon Diamond/ Pearl/ Platinum). That’s Dialga, Palkia, and Giratina, the legendary dragons of space and time. These Pokemon will also all be Shiny, which makes them incredibly rare and exclusive. I don’t know how you feel about pink Palkia, but the yellow and blue Giratina is pretty cool.

These events will be rolled out as we approached the release of Pokemon X/Y.

  • August 19-September 8: Shiny Dialga483
  • 484September 9-September 29: Shiny Palkia
  • 487September 30-October 20: Shiny Giratina

    I’m always thankful for the chance to catch a shiny pokemon. That said I’d prefer it if we had a chance to catch one of the legendary pokemon that are not flagship. An event Jirachi, Celebi, Arceus, Mew, etc, would be nice.

      Mew was actually the very first event Pokemon! But back then, you had to send a copy of your cartridge to GameFreak, and they’d send it back with Mew on it.

    Will australia be getting this event?

    • jakespafford

      I’m not sure about Australia. As far as I know, Canada will be getting a similar version at EB stores

  • NYAA!~

    so is it like every gamestop will be particapating? im not sure…

    • Monosocratic

      Yes. Every single Gamestop should have this. In the past, at local branches, they haven’t always had it turned on. Don’t be afraid to ask their employees about how to do the transfer.
