Pokemon X and Y Shiny Gengar code share

By Alan Ng - Oct 14, 2014

Last month we told you that Pokemon X and Y players would be able to get their hands on a Pokemon X and Y Shiny Gengar code free of charge, with no purchase necessary at GameStop.

Now, we are pleased to confirm that the code distribution is now live and as we expected – the generosity of the Pokemon community is too. Typically you would need to head into your local GameStop score and pick up a card yourself, but thanks to social media, kind players are already dishing out codes.

Shiny Gengar is now up for grabs and those who obtain this version will get moves such as Shadow Ball, Sludge Wave, Confuse Ray and Astonish, as well as a Gengarite needed to transform Gengar into Mega Gengar.


If you don’t want to head into GameStop but are still desperate to get a code, your best bet is to keep an eye on Twitter as users are handing out codes freely as we speak.

You may get lucky and grab one when someone is feeling generous. Alternatively, you could just ask for one below and you may get fortunate with those who already happen to have a few spare codes right now.

Once again, this is a free giveaway so if you can head into GameStop you should, since you won’t need to buy anything to get the code.

Do you have a Shiny Gengar code? Feel free to share below for those that are still searching for a Shiny Gengar in-game.

Follow us on Facebook, Twitter or Google Plus.

    I would be so grateful for 2 codes, or even1. I came down to get the Gengars for my brothers and never noticed that it said to get a card. My GameStop has run out of cards. The closest alternative is an hour away and I have to get to work now.

    hello, i have a US 3DS but i’m in France,
    Could someone tell me the code for US version? 🙁
    p/s: i got a code of gengar for French DS, if you have a code for US version, we can trade

  • Ren

    US only. So unfair. 🙁
    I’m Canadian… though with my shitty luck, there isn’t even a Gamestop or EB Games in my town. (Because the city refuses to allow them their neon sign, which is utter bull, considering the amount of neon signs already in town.)

    Anyone have a spare code laying around that they may be willing to give a poor Canadian player?
