Following yesterday’s confirmation for the Pokemon Company International’s Shiny Gengar and Diancie distribution for the US in GameStop stores, the special timed-event Pokemon will also be available in the UK. Handled by retailer GAME, eager Pokemon X & Y fans will be able to grab Shiny Gengar – which comes holding a Gengarite Mega Stone – between October 15 and November 5.
The Diancie distribution will promptly follow the Shiny Gengar event and will be available from November 6 through to November 28 for Pokemon X & Y. Fans who pick up a Diancie can transfer the exclusive Pokemon through to Omega Ruby and Alpha Sapphire, when it launches November 28, to obtain a special Diancite Mega Stone. Players can pick up both Shiny Gengar and Diancie via a special code distribution, which will be printed on a receipt in store.
For the rest of Europe, the Pokemon Company International has confirmed both Pokemon events will be available for France, Spain, Germany, Belgium, The Netherlands, and Italy – dates, however, are currently unknown.
UK video game retailer GAME has announced via its website that it has now completely sold out of the limited edition Bayonetta 2 First Print Edition. The wonderful boxset was exclusive to GAME in the United Kingdom and obviously attracted plenty of interest.
