The celebration of the 20th anniversary of Pokemon continues. This month’s legendary Pokemon is Victini.
Victini first showed up as a special download for Pokemon Black & White back in March of 2011.
Instructions on how to download Victini to your copy of Pokemon X and Y or Pokemon Alpha Sapphire and Omega Ruby are available on the Pokemon site. You have until September 24th to make it happen.
And with Victini available, that leaves just three more 20th anniversary downloads this year.
- October – Keldeo (Nintendo Network)
- November – Genesect (GameStop)
- December – Meloetta (Nintendo Network)
Of course, the focus on this year’s celebration has largely been on the upcoming Pokemon Sun & Moon. Last week it was announced that those who purchase Pokemon Sun & Moon before January 11, 2017 will be able to download a special Munchlax.
Munchlax evolves into Snorlax who, after 20 years of laying about, will actually have its own special Z-move attack as part of the upcoming title.
All of which is covered in this month’s preview video.
Finally, on the Pokemon Go front, Niantic has announced their next upcoming feature, a buddy system that allows you to choose a Pokemon to travel with that will earn bonuses and rewards. Hopefully Niantic carries on building Pokemon Go into a full fledged Pokemon game.
