Starting in August and ending in October, you will be able to snatch three legendary Pokémon from GameStop. The mascot Pokémon from Diamond, Pearl and Platinum are making their generation five debut. Until this giveaway takes place, the only way to obtain Dialga, Palkia and Giratina was to trade them to Black and White. Beginning August 19 until September 8, Dialga will be distributed by GameStop. Palkia is the next one, available from September 9 through September 29. The last one, Giratina, can be caught from September 30 until October 20. Each legendary will be up for grabs three weeks each, so there’s really no excuse to miss out. Oh, the dates are a tad different for Canadian fans. For the first it’s August 30, then September 13 and the last on September 27. All at EB Games.
Oh yeah, and they’re all shiny! If you’re like me and have never had the fortune or luck of running into a wild shiny Pokémon and can only obtain them through giveaways, then you better get these guys. So what if it took no effort, it’s still a shiny and they’re legendary. This way, you’ll be able to trade them to Pokémon X and Y. Hey you can get Giratina and the new game on the same day if you wanted. However, if you happen to be reading this from Europe you’ll receive a nifty DS game holder if you pre-order Pokémon X and Y. It’s not a big deal but it shows off your Pokémon loyalty.
