How To Unlock Torchic With A Blazikenite Mega Stone

Between October 12th, 2013 to January 15th, 2014; Pokemon X and Y players can get a special Torchic holding the Blazikenite, the Mega Stone needed for Blaziken’s Mega Evolution.

The Torchic you’ll get via the Nintendo Network has the Hidden Ability Speed Boost. Speed Boost increases a Pokémon’s Speed at the end of every turn, making it a very powerful Ability. You CANNOT find a Torchic with this Ability through regular gameplay, making this an exceedingly rare Pokémon. This Level 10 Pokémon knows the moves Scratch, Growl, Focus Energy, and Ember, a solid foundation of moves to start Torchic’s growth.

• STEP 1: Select “Mystery Gift” on the game’s Main Menu.
• STEP 2: Select “Receive Gift”, then choose “Yes”.
• STEP 3: Select “Get Via Internet”, then choose “Yes”.
• STEP 4: Watch as you receive Torchic, once it’s finished you’ll get an on-screen message saying “The gift has been received!”
• STEP 5: Then speak to the delivery girl in any Pokemon Center to receive Torchic.
• STEP 6: After the game confirms you’ve “Received Torchic!” be sure to save your game! And after saving you’re done and you can play with Torchic.

Important note about Mega Blaziken: If you miss your chance to receive this Torchic as a gift, you will not be able to Mega Evolve Blaziken. Get Torchic and the Blazikenite, and blaze toward Mega Evolution!

Here’s a video guide showing you how to download Torchic & pick it up at a Pokemon Center:

Store Up To 3,000 Pokemon Online

Pokémon Bank and Poké Transporter will launch in the Nintendo eShop on December 27, 2013. If you download and open Pokémon Bank by January 31, 2014, you will be able to obtain a pass that will allow you to use the software for no charge for 30 days (but again, usage is required for it to be free for the first month). A $4.99 annual charge allows the service to be maintained long-term, for support so the service will be compatible with future Pokémon games!

You’ll be able to use Pokémon Bank at any point after obtaining your Pokédex in Pokémon X and Pokémon Y. In Pokémon Bank, you’ll have 100 Boxes that can hold 30 Pokémon each, allowing you to store a total of 3,000 Pokémon! Pokémon Bank is a paid service, with an annual charge for usage. As a comparison, previous storage systems for your Pokémon—such as Pokémon Box for the Nintendo GameCube and My Pokémon Ranch for the Nintendo Wii—could hold a maximum of 1,500 Pokémon. As always, there are still PC Boxes within Pokémon X and Pokémon Y, just as there have been in previous games in the Pokémon series.

Poké Transporter is companion software that works together with Pokémon Bank to transfer Pokémon from your copies of Pokémon Black, Pokémon White, Pokémon Black 2, and Pokémon White 2** to your own private Boxes hosted online through the Pokémon Bank service. After downloading Pokémon Bank, you can download Poké Transporter for no charge. Please note that after transferring Pokemon from those games, you cannot later move them back to those games.

** How to move Pokemon from all the old Pokemon games into Pokemon X & Y?
Use the GBA Game Card slot on a Nintendo DS Lite or Nintendo DS to transfer Pokémon from Pokémon Ruby, Pokémon Sapphire, Pokémon Emerald, Pokémon FireRed, and Pokémon LeafGreen to an area called the Pal Park in Pokémon Diamond, Pokémon Pearl, Pokémon Platinum, Pokémon HeartGold, or Pokémon SoulSilver.
Then, using two systems from the Nintendo DS family, transfer your Pokémon from Pokémon Diamond, Pokémon Pearl, Pokémon Platinum, Pokémon HeartGold, or Pokémon SoulSilver to Pokémon Black, Pokémon White, Pokémon Black 2, or Pokémon White 2 using the Poké Transfer facility that exists within those games.

Here’s a Pokémon Bank and Poké Transfer introduction by the creators of the games:
