Heads-up all Pokemon X and Y fans, as it looks like Game Freak has sneakily launched the first Pokemon X and Y event. We have confirmation that new buyers of Pokemon X and Y at Walmart, can obtain a serial code to unlock a special version of Garchomp or Scizor.
We now also have confirmation of just how special these Pokemon will be and what moves they will come with. Also, both Garchomp and Scizor will come inside a Cherish Ball, which cannot be obtained normally in Pokemon X and Y.
Firstly, picking up Pokemon X and Walmart will give you Garchomp. Special abilities include Sand Veil or Rough Skin, while Garchomp will also be holding holding a Dragon Fang. The four moves of this event Pokemon will be Slash, Dragon Claw, Dig and Crunch.
As for Scizor, you’ll be able to get this for free by buying Pokemon Y at Walmart. The special abilities of this Pokemon are Swarm or Technician, but Scizor won’t be holding an item. Scizor’s moves will be X-Scissor, Night Slash, Double Hit and Iron Head.
So there we have it – looks like the perfect time to get the game if you didn’t already. Having said that, we’ve also heard feedback from launch buyers who are unhappy that they are not getting any of these exclusive Pokemon.
Let’s hope that Game Freak has something lined up to keep everyone happy. Let us know if you have picked up the game from Walmart this week for the special code – this event will run until June 30th 2014.
