The PokÃ©mon Company has begun a global distribution of unique starters from the Unova region as of late yesterday (Serperior). The other two (Emboar and Samurott, respectively) will be made available in the coming weeks.
But what's so special about that? Can't you already obtain a Unova starter after beating the Elite 4 two or three times? Indeed you can. Besides Bulbasaur, Charmander and Squirtle who are available in PokÃ©mon X&Y, you have a chance to grab one of every region's starter PokÃ©mon throughout your ORAS journey.
What makes these distributed PokÃ©mon unique is that they each have their Hidden Ability, which wasn't available prior to these Event PokÃ©mon going out. Instead of Overgrow, this special Serperior has Contrary, an Ability that makes moves like Growl/Leer increase the affected stat instead of decrease it.
To obtain these special PokÃ©mon in North America or wherever you happen to reside, all you'll need is a reliable Internet connection and the "secret code(s)". These codes will be widely available as each PokÃ©mon's distribution goes live across the globe. Serperior's code is POKEMON497. Select Mystery Gift on your copy of Omega Ruby or Alpha Sapphire from the title screen, then Receive Gift, then Get With Code and enter that one in. The code for Reckless Emboar will be available next week when that distribution begins, and Shell Armor Samurott's code can be found in next month's PokÃ©mon Trainer Club newsletter. Be sure to sign up by January 31st, 2015 if you don't already have a PokÃ©mon Trainer Club account!
