With the global release of Pokémon X and Y only a few days away, it’s definitely time to start boarding the hype train – that’s if you haven’t done so already. Over the weekend, the official Pokémon site detailed another way of obtaining special items and event distribution Pokémon through serial codes. UK supermarket giant Tesco has confirmed they will be selling both X and Y games with serial codes that will allow players to access 12 Quick Balls from the beginning of their adventure. The serial codes will join local wireless, special in-store events, and InfraRed as an additional way to obtain items and limited-edition Pokémon.
The first Pokémon available through wireless distribution will be Torchic on October 12, remaining until January 15 next year. Arriving in a Cherish Ball, Torchic will be able to evolve into Mega Blaziken by using a Mega Stone. For more information on the event, see the official site for details.
