There’s a spooky treat available for Pokemon fans across America in the lead up to Halloween. From October 13 until October 26, 2014, Pokemon X and Y owners can grab a special Shiny Gengar which comes holding a Gengarite Mega Stone at participating U.S. GameStop stores. Plus, the Pokemon Company International also unveiled fans can purchase a Pokémon TCG: Gengar Spirit Link 2-Pack from October 13 at GameStop locations across the U.S. while supplies last.
Not only is a Shiny Gengar available for X & Y players, but the mythical Diancie is also up for grabs at GameStop stores from October 27 until November 16, 2014. But if you’re looking to upgrade to Omega Ruby and Alpha Sapphire on November 21, you can simply transfer Diancie into the new games at launch to obtain the Diancite Mega Stone. Here’s the official word from the Pokemon Company International:
The Pokémon Company International today revealed that from October 13 through October 26, 2014, Pokémon X and Pokémon Y video game players in the United States can get a special Shiny Gengar holding a Gengarite Mega Stone via a special code card distribution at participating GameStop stores. Players can Mega Evolve this Shiny Gengar into Shiny Mega Gengar during battles.
Also, as an early Halloween treat from Pokémon, beginning October 13, 2014, fans can purchase a Pokémon TCG: Gengar Spirit Link 2-Pack at participating GameStop locations in the U.S. while supplies last. Each Pokémon TCG: Gengar Spirit Link 2-Pack includes two 10-card booster packs from the Pokémon TCG: XY Furious Fists expansion, as well as the Gengar Spirit Link Pokémon Trainer card that debuts in the Pokémon TCG: XY Phantom Forces expansion, launching nationwide November 5, 2014.
Additionally, players can get the long-awaited Mythical Pokémon Diancie for Pokémon X or Pokémon Y at participating GameStop locations in the U.S. from October 27 through November 16, 2014. Once players receive Diancie via the special in-store code card distribution, they can transfer it into Pokémon Omega Ruby or Pokémon Alpha Sapphire when the video games launch November 21, 2014, for the Nintendo 3DS family of systems. After obtaining the Diancite Mega Stone in the new games, players can Mega Evolve Diancie into Mega Diancie during battles.
