Every PokÃ©mon game seems to have a handful you can't capture by normal means. I've spoken at length about these Mythical PokÃ©mon and how it's a shame you're not able to catch them yourself like it used to be. Most of these Events require you to visit a store like GameStop in the United States.
I have good news, though! The PokÃ©mon Company just announced that #719 Diancie, previously only available in the United States through a serial code obtained by visiting GameStop last year, will be distributed via the Nintendo Network this weekend, July 24th through 27th. This is only a short window of time, so be sure to mark your calendars or remember those dates!
You can access the means to receive Diancie by selecting "MYSTERY GIFT" from the title menu. More information will be available when the Event goes live this weekend; I suspect it will be received via a Password like similar Wi-Fi distributions. I'll let you know as soon as we hear more! I'm sure they'll let folks know via Twitter and the official side-site for Diancie, too.
Did you obtain Diancie at GameStop last year, or will this be the first time you're able to grab this Mythical PokÃ©mon? Be sure to let us know!
