May’s Darkrai Giveaway Is the Stuff of Nightmares

The Pokémon Company’s 20th Anniversary celebrations continue with their Mythical Pokémon giveaway! This month sees the release of the Pitch-Black Pokémon Darkrai, who has been giving trainers nightmares since its debut in Generation IV.

Darkrai is a pure Dark-type Pokémon and comes with the ability Bad Dreams, causing damage to the opponent’s sleeping Pokémon at the end of every turn. Also included is the move Dark Void, Darkrai’s signature move which puts opposing Pokémon to sleep. Like all of the Pokémon previously released in this giveaway, Darkrai is level 100.

Darkrai is available at participating GameStop stores throughout May, where you can pick up the redeemable code for Pokémon X/Y and Alpha Sapphire/Omega Ruby games.

But that’s not the only Pokémon giveaway this month! Through the Mystery Gift via Internet option you can also receive Zygarde, Shiny Xerneas, and Shiny Yvetal! The legendary trio from the Generation VI Kalos region are available one week each in May. This week until Sunday you can pick up the level 100 Zygarde. Shiniy Xerneas will be available between May 11 and 17, and Shiny Yvetal will be up for grabs between May 20 and 26. You won’t want to miss the opportunity to pick up these rare legendaries, so set up reminders for yourself to log on!

The company are clearly laying groundwork to make it easier than ever to complete the PokéDex in this year’s Pokémon Sun/Moon. Personally I appreciate this, because while I don’t think it’s still going to be easy by any stretch, it’s a more attainable goal. Besides, I’m pretty excited to pick up some shiny legendaries!
