We’re finally getting information on the next, legendary Pokemon distribution event and no, it isn’t happening right now. (Only the Fancy Pattern Vivillon has headed our way. The next freebie to grace our systems will be Diancie sometime this fall.
Unfortunately, there’s a bit of a damper on the Diancie distribution. It’s only happening through GameStop. So you have to find a GameStop near you that’s participating to download the legendary to your copy of Pokemon X or Y via Mystery Gift. We actually have to leave the house! And then hope the nearest GameStop is all set up and actually doing the distribution.
An exact date for the doling out of Diancie hasn’t been announced. However, there are some hints. The announcement specifically mentions downloading the legendary to Pokemon X and Y, so it can be transferred over and Mega Evolved into Mega Diancie in Pokemon Alpha Sapphire and Pokemon Omega Ruby. So it will definitely happen before November, because otherwise the announcement would have mentioned directly downloading it to those games. The announcement also says Fall. So I’m thinking we’ll get Diancie sometime in October. Does that sound plausible? I think it could work.
It won’t make the wait any easier, but here’s some Diancie footage to enjoy in the meantime.
