pokemon birds

A legendary bird distribution event has been set for North America. Pokémon Trainer Newsletter subscribers will receive codes for Articuno, Moltres, and Zapdos for Pokémon X, Y, Alpha Sapphire, and Omega Ruby. These codes can be entered under the Mystery Gift heading in each of the games.


The Articuno, Moltres, and Zapdos being distributed are special versions of the characters. This is the first time you can officially get the legendary birds with their Hidden Abilities. Snow Cloak Articuno has boosted evasion when there’s a hailstorm in battle. Flame Body Moltres may burn opponents who hit it with an attack that makes contact. Finally, Static Zapdos may paralyze opponents who make contact with it with an attack.


The cut-off date to become a Pokémon Trainer Club member and subscribe to the newsletter so you’ll get the legendary bird Pokémon is April 22, 2016. The codes will go out in the May 2016 email newsletter. If you already have an account, you can check your settings to make sure you agreed to receive emails.
