Today begins the promotional release of three Pokémon for subscribers to Pokémon Bank. Until November 30, you’ll be able to claim the final evolutions of the Johto region starter Pokémon – that’s a level 50 Meganium, Typhlosion, and Feraligatr.

Meganium comes with the Hidden Ability Leaf Guard, a protection from status conditions when the sunlight is harsh or extremely harsh. Meganium also knows Sunny Day, changing the weather to take advantage of its own Hidden Ability.

Typhlosion has the Hidden Ability Flash Fire, boosting the power of Fire-type moves by 50% and preventing damage if hit with a Fire-type move. Typhlosion also knows Overheat, Flamethrower, and Flame Charge, maximising the Flash Fire effects.

Feraligatr possesses the Hidden Ability Sheer Force, eliminating the additional effects of moves used by the Pokémon and increasing power by 30%. Feraligatr already knows three moves that have additional effects. Thanks to Sheer Force, it can deal major damage with these moves.

After receiving your three starters, players will be required to use the Pokémon Link in either Pokémon X & Y or Pokémon Omega Ruby and Alpha Sapphire.

The promotion runs from February 27 right through to November 30, 2015, so if you’re not already a user of Pokémon Bank, there’s plenty of time to sign up. It’ll cost you $4.99 / £4.49 / €4.99 but in addition to claiming these classic starter Pokémon, you’ll be able to store up to 3000 ‘mon ‘in the cloud’ online.
