Another Pokemon distribution event is in progress. Everyone with copies of Pokemon X and Y have a Heracross or Pinsir waiting for them. The level 50 Heracross is only for Pokemon X users, while only Y gets the Pinsir. But that isn’t what this story is about. (Though you really should go to Mystery Gift, choose an Internet gift, and grab them now if you haven’t already.) This is about the GameStop Pokemon distribution event.
As of today, August 18, 2014, GameStop has begun doling out Mega Stones for Heracross and Pinsir. Players must go to their nearest GameStop store for this Pokemon distribution event. Once there, they can get a special flier with codes for the Mega Stones on them. (Some people have reported stores holding the fliers hostage for Pokemon Alpha Sapphire and Omega Ruby, but you should be able to get it without one.) Once you have the code, start Pokemon X or Y, choose Mystery Gift, and choose to get a gift via a code, enter it, and you’re set. After a few moments, Heracronite will be available in X, while those with Y get Pinsirite.
GameStop will be giving away the Mega Stones during this Pokemon Distribution event until August 31, 2014. You have plenty of time to grab those stones. If you happen to miss them though, it isn’t the end of the world. Both Heracross and Pinsir can be captured in the games, thought at lower levels, and even their Mega Stones are available in-game. However, you’ll have to do a trade, as Pinsir and Pinsirite are only in Pokemon X, while Heracross and Hercronite are only in Y.
