Head after the break for the rest of this post!
Pokkén Tournament (Wii U) comes out on March 18th, worldwide.
As part of the 20th Anniversary of the Pokémon series, there will be Mythical Pokémon distributions throughout the year. Last month Mew was available, and it could be obtained via a serial code given out at participating retailers (it’s still available in some countries like France, where the distribution started later). And this month, the Mythical Pokémon distributed is none other than Celebi, now available in Europe and North America.
But unlike Mew, you won’t have to go anywhere to get Celebi: all you need is an internet connection, since this distribution is done via the Nintendo Network. To get it, you need to follow the steps below:
- Launch the game
- Select Mystery Gift
- Select Receive Gift
- Select Get Via Internet
- Select your save data
- Talk to the delivery girl to get your Pokémon
- Save your game
Celebi will be available until Marh 24th.
