Pokémon X & Y Charizard Event Announced for Germany

Earlier this year, Pokémon X & Y users in the UK and Japan participated in an event that offered renowned Fire-type Pokémon Charizard as a downloadable gift, but it’s now been confirmed that Germany is also set to receive the event.

Running from September 2nd to September 30th, Pokémon Trainers need to head to their nearest GameStop in order to receive a special serial code for Charizard. Serebii has also stated that the Pokémon will come with a Mega Stone, allowing Pokémon X users to obtain Charizardite Y while Pokémon Y receives the other variation, Charizardite X.

In other Pokémon-related news, Japan will be receiving a new event based on a Halloween promotion called “White Gengar,” which allows players to download a shiny version of the Ghost-type Pokémon Gengar. It is not known whether or not this event will be coming to other regions in the near future, but further details regarding the Gengar can be found here.

Fairy Garden, a new battle competition, was also confirmed by Nintendo earlier this week for Pokémon X & Y, with it being a Single Battle tournament and, more importantly, specifically based on the use of Fairy-type Pokémon. Again, further details on when the event will be taking place and the full requirements needed for participation can be found at Gamer Headlines.

The next instalments in Pokémon’s handheld franchise, Pokémon Omega Ruby and Alpha Sapphire, are scheduled for release worldwide in November for Nintendo 3DS.
