The Pokémon Company International announced today that Yveltal and Xerneas will be the next Pokémon featured in the yearlong celebration of Legendary Pokémon. Beginning May 4 until May 26, players can receive either Yveltal or Xerneas* in their Pokémon Ultra Sun, Pokémon Ultra Moon, Pokémon Sun or Pokémon Moon game for the Nintendo 3DS™ family of systems. Code cards will be available at GAME in the UK and GameStop in Ireland.
In addition, both Yveltal and Xerneas are two of the 11 new Boosters available from today in Pokémon Duel as part of the game’s latest update.
These Legendary Pokémon first appeared in Pokémon X and Pokémon Y. When the wings and tail feathers of Yveltal spread wide and glow red, it can absorb the life force of living creatures. Xerneas is a Fairy-type Pokémon, and it is said it can share eternal life when the horns on its head shine in seven colours.
A new trailer that also features exclusive interview footage with developers at GAME FREAK about these Legendary Pokémon is available at https://youtu.be/9nN9jY_63hA.
