Pokemon X and Y Mega Pinsir & Mega Heracross Release Date at GameStop Event

Pokemon X and Y fans will be getting a special Mega Pinsir & Mega Heracross Pokemon treat via a special digital distribution WiFi event taking place from August 13th to September 17th, 2014 in America & Canada.

The distribution event will be sending tough Bug Pokemon (A Stag Beetle) Pinsir from X version to those with Y version, and Heavyweight Fighting (Blue Winged Beetle) Bug Type Heracross from Y version to those with X version.

Additionally, if you go to GameStop (US only) during the event you can pick up a free serial code that allows you to get the Heracronite Mega Stone for Heracross or the Pinsirite Mega Stone for Pinsir.

When Pinsir holds the Pinsirite Item, it can Mega Evolve into Mega Pinsir during battle. Heracross meanwhile can Mega Evolve into Mega Heracross if it holds the Heracronite Item in Battle.

As a bonus, if you pre-order Pokemon Omega Ruby or Alpha Sapphire (which hit stores & Nintendo eShop on November 21, 2014) while you are at GameStop to get the X/Y serial code, you will get a free pre-order bonus poster!

About Pinsir & Mega Pinsir / Heracross & Mega Heracross

“Pinsir and Heracross each pack a huge punch in battle and become even more powerful when they Mega Evolve!

The Lv. 50 Pinsir has an Adamant Nature and knows X-Scissor, Earthquake, Stone Edge, and Return. It will have one of two Abilities: the defensive Hyper Cutter Ability or Mold Breaker. During Mega Evolution, Mega Pinsir’s Ability becomes Aerilate.

The Lv. 50 Heracross has an Adamant Nature and knows Bullet Seed, Pin Missile, Close Combat, and Megahorn. Its Ability, Swarm or Guts, will change to Skill Link during Mega Evolution.”

Here’s a video talking about Mega Pinsir’s ridiculous power.

I’m happy to see Nintendo keeping the Pokemon X/Pokemon Y flame alive with events like this.
