Every month during Pokémon’s 20th anniversary, players have a chance of catching some rare Pokémon. This time around is Arceus, the Alpha Pokémon. It made its debut in Diamond and Pearl with the game’s lore describing it as having shaped the entire world.
Fans can visit GameStop locations in order to pick up a digital code card so they may finally catch this legendary Pokémon. It will only work for Pokémon X, Y, Alpha Sapphire and Omega Ruby. Arceus comes with Recover, Hyper Beam, and Perish Song. It also has Judgement, its signature attack, which unleashes a powerful blast on opponents and deals damage of whatever Type-Plate Arceus is holding. Depending on which type Arceus becomes could prove useful, but it will be a strong attack regardless.
In addition to the Pokémon itself, you can grab a special Pokémon Trading Card Game: Mythical Pokémon Collection pack with a card and collectible pin of the legend. There are also plush and plastic toys to enjoy. Then, download Pokémon: Arceus and the Jewel of Life to watch on iTunes, Google Play, and Amazon Video.
Pick up an Arceus code from August 1 until August 24. Be sure to claim it in-game by November 30, 2016 or it will expire. Check back here for even more news on Pokémon’s 20th anniversary celebration to see what other Pokémon will be made available.
