Today’s Pokémon news: some Pokémon Sun and Moon news, but also…
Pokémon Sun and Moon
Starting today, players in Europe can get a Serial Code for a Bottle Cap in Pokémon Sun and Moon, from participating retailers:
United Kingdom: from GAME
Denmark: from GameStop
Germany: from GameStop (and more precisely the Nintendo Zones there), starting February 18th
The Serial Code will be available until February 28th, and has to be used before May 13th.
Also, a few days ago, The Pokémon Company announced that Mega Stones for Pokémon not found in Pokémon Sun and Moon would be distributed via Battle Competitions.
That notice is now available in English:
With the update of Pokémon Bank on January 25, 2017, many Pokémon that were not previously seen in the Alola region are making their way to players’ Pokémon Sun and Pokémon Moon games.
We have received inquiries from players curious about how they can obtain Mega Stones for their Pokémon that were brought over from different Pokémon games via Pokémon Bank. Mega Stones are powerful items that greatly affect the trends of battles between Trainers. As a result, we have decided to start giving out these otherwise unobtainable Mega Stones as participation prizes in Online Competitions. We hope that as we gradually introduce these Mega Stones, players will enjoy seeing how trends in the battle environment change over time.
To begin, we will give Mawilite and Beedrillite Mega Stones to those who participate in three or more battles in the 2017 International Challenge February Online Competition.
We will continue to update players about future opportunities to obtain Mega Stones, so please keep checking for the latest information.
Also, here’s the preview for the next episode of the Pokémon Sun and Moon anime series, airing on February 9th in Japan:
To celebrate the release of the Sun and Moon expansion for the Pokémon Trading Card Game, The Pokémon Company partnered with Toys ‘R Us for a special event. On February 4th, fans heading to participating stores will be able to get some goodies (such as a foil promo card featuring Pokémon Cosmog, and a collector’s album), and take part in some Pokémon coloring activities.
