Pokemon X and Y is offering a new promotion that will allow fans to download rare shiny legendary Pokemon.
The Inquisitr reports the new Shiny Pokemon will look exactly like the regular models in the games except their colors will be different. They will also be playable in older versions of the game, Pokemon White version, Black version, and White version 2 and Black version 2.
"Using a fully charged DS, 3DS, or 3DS XL and a copy of the above mentioned games, stop by any GAME store, enable the wireless gift, and download away. You will need the Pokedex in-game and no more than 11 Wonder Cards as you head to the Pokemon Center where the Delivery Man will give you your free gift," the promotion reads.
The event began on Aug. 30 when they released the Shiny Dialga until Sept. 12. The next Pokemon, Shiny Palkia, will be avialble from Sept. 27 through Oct. 11, with the last, Shiny Giratina, running from Sept. 27 through Oct. 11.
Tomorrow, Pokemon X and Y will be getting a Nintendo Direct presentation that will broadcast globally and be hosted by the company's big boss, Satoru Iwata.
The video will be available on the east coast live at 7 a.m., in Japan at 8 p.m., and in Europe at 1 p.m.
The Nintendo executive will be discussing the new addition to the Pokemon franchise and show some demonstrations from the game as well as share any news.
X and Y will launch on October 12 for the handheld 3DS and is one of the most highly anticipated Pokemon games in years.
A demo for Pokemon X and Y was recently released, and through the short clip, gamers got a glimpse of some of the brand new features in the game.
