Some of you may remember that at the beginning of the month an in-store event allowing Pokémon trainers to get their hands on Meloetta was revealed to be taking place in Gamestop stores in the US and Canadian EB Games stores during March. Today we have good news for Pokémon fans living in the UK, with GAME confirming the event will be running in all their stores from late March.
The event will be running throughout GAME stores from the 22nd of March until the 19th of April, which is later than the events will run in the US. The events being held in Gamestop and EB Games stores will be live from the 4th of March until the 24th. The announcement of the UK event has also brought with it the details of the Meloetta which will be given out, and surprisingly the details of the Pokémon are different to the one given out in Japan last year. Its details are as follows:
The notable differences from the Japanese Meloetta are the moves and its level being upped from 15 to 50. The Meloetta event will work for all of the fifth generation games, giving all Pokémon fans a chance to get their hands on the Pokémon. However, for those of you with Pokémon Black 2 or Pokémon White 2 the Pokémon Global Link will be releasing a special C-Gear skin featuring the rare Pokémon Meloetta. The release date for the C-Gear skin differs depending on where you are, fans in the UK can obtain it from the 28th of March, while those of you in the US can have it from the 7th of March.
