Yesterday we brought you the news that GameStop stores in the US would be giving away serial codes for a Shiny Gengar and Diancie during the Autumn. Good news for UK Pokémon fans today as the same distribution has been announced for us as well.
Our dates for the events differ greatly from the US. From the 15th of October until the 5th of November you'll be able to get a serial code from video game retailer GAME for a Shiny Gengar holding the Gengarite Mega Stone.
From the 6th of November through until the 28th of November you'll be able to get your hands on Diancie from GAME for your Pokémon X or Pokémon Y game.
Now that we’ve gotten into September and the release of Pokémon Omega Ruby and Pokémon Alpha Sapphire isn’t that far away video games stores across the world have been revealing the pre-order bonuses being offered for the two games. We’ve decided to round it all up in one handy article for you so you have an idea of what’s on offer. You can find out more after the cut!
Two new Pokémon distributions have been announced for the US during autumn. Both will be given out by GameStop stop stores as serial codes.
The first event runs from the 13th of October until the 26th of October and gives players the chance to get their hands on a Shiny Gengar holding its Mega Stone, the Gengarite.
From the 27th of October until the 16th of November GameStop stores will also be giving players their very first chance to get their hands on Diancie in Pokémon X and Pokémon Y.
No news on the distributions have been revealed for Europe, but we should be getting Diancie at least sometime soon.
The concept of the guys at Namco Bandai's Tekken coming together with The Pokemon Company/Nintendo to build a Pokemon version of Tekken is, on paper, so insane sounding that despite multiple indications over the past year that exactly that was happening, even the most open minded of us found it hard to commit to the theory.
So it probably doesn't really add up that I would espouse that the upcoming, actually being made, game could possibly be the best thing the series has done since the height of the original launch. But I am.

Last week it was revealed that Japanese Monthly Famitsu would be making a shocking announcement. Said announcement has today been made in the form of Pokken Tournament, a fighting game closely related to the Tekken series.
The game is being handled by Bandai Namco and has involvement from Tekken producer Katsuhiro Harada. Currently the game has only been confirmed for Japan where it will be released next year as an arcade game, but hopefully a port to the Wii U or 3DS isn't out of the question if the game ever makes it outside of Japan.
The president of the Pokémon Company was asked a question by viewers about why they decided to do an arcade game, his answer made it sounds as though the intention is to have it in arcades first and then release it on console after awhile. Oddly enough the official Pokémon YouTube channel for outside of Japan has also put up a trailer for...
Once upon a time, in the depths of the late 90s, Pokemon and Mr Monopoly had a mutually beneficial baby and it's name was, predictably, Monopoly: Pokemon Edition. It was fairly succesful, and has since gone on to be an actually quite expensive piece of Pokemon tat for collectors.
Following on from the announcement of a Legend of Zelda version of Monopoly, however, Monopoly and Pokemon are back together and riding the nostalgia train all the way back to the 90s with Monopoly: Pokemon Kanto Edition. This time, instead of the generic anime artwork, however, the official artwork from the Fire Red and Leaf Green games takes centre-stage - but just as before,...
During the Pokémon World Championships it has been revealed that the Pokémon Trading Card Game Online will be coming to the iPad sometime in 2014.
The news was revealed thanks to YouTuber and the Pokémon Trading Card Game Worlds commentator Josh Wittenkeller tweeted a picture of the game running on an iPad. Kotaku then contacted the Pokémon Company for confirmation on when the game would be released.
The latest trailer for Pokémon Omega Ruby and Pokémon Alpha Sapphire has been released showing off the Mega Pokémon that were revealed in CoroCoro this month.
The trailer confirms the return of Horde Battles to the game after they were introduced in Pokémon X and Pokémon Y. The video also confirms that the Shiny Beldum holding the Mega Stone for Metagross will be given away as a Wi-Fi event on the same day the games are released in Europe and the US.
The official Pokémon site for Pokémon Omega Ruby and Pokémon Alpha Sapphire have also revealed some of the stat boosts that our new Mega Pokémon get. Mega Lopunny gains a boost in Attack and Speed. Mega Salamence gains a good deal of Defense, and...
The latest edition of Japanese magazine CoroCoro has leaked and brought with it the reveal of three new Mega Pokémon to be featured in Pokémon Omega Ruby and Pokémon Alpha Sapphire.
