Pokemon X and Y Inkay for Japan after Pokebank

While Pokemon X and Y gamers in UK and US continue to sweat over the Pokebank release date, we have new intel from Japan which may not lighten your mood. It appears that a new Pokemon X and Y event is starting, offering Japanese Pokemon X and Y players the chance to own a special version of Inkay.

You may have seen our earlier article on the Pokebank delay, which includes countless comments from users who are unhappy that the Pokebank is available in Japan and not US or UK – some even accusing Game Freak and Nintendo of being ‘biased’.

As Nintendo keeps everyone waiting still, now we have confirmation that Japanese players are getting even more good news – a special Pokemon X and Y Inkay in celebration of the New Year. To get this version of Inkay, players will have to visit Pokemon centers in Japan before January 26.

This is no ordinary version of Inkay either. This one is going to come with a unique move not seen anywhere before and unattainable anywhere else either. This ability is called Happy Time and allows the player to receive double the amount of prize money paid out at the end of each fight.

While some of our readers in the US and UK may see this as another kick in the face, it’s obviously fantastic news for everyone else in Japan – especially those that need more in-game cash to buy items.

As far as we’re aware, there are no plans to offer this version of Inkay outside of Japan. Give us your reaction to this below.
