Meloetta

Get the Melody Pokémon Meloetta at Worlds

The Mythical Pokémon Meloetta will raise its voice in Nashville this August at the Pokémon World Championships! Nashville is famous for the many talented musicians whose names were made there, making it the perfect place for Meloetta to take the stage. All Pokémon World Championship attendees can get a performance-ready Meloetta holding a Metronome and knowing a full set of musical moves. This is a momentous event, as Meloetta is the first Mythical Pokémon to be given out as a Pokémon World Championship event.

If you're attending the Pokémon World Championships on August 24–26 and want to add this special Meloetta to your Pokémon collection, remember to bring your system in the Nintendo 3DS family and your copy of Pokémon Ultra Sun, Pokémon Ultra Moon, Pokémon Sun, or Pokémon Moon. You can get only one Meloetta per game. Meloetta will be available outside of the main event hall, so you don't need a Worlds entry badge to receive the Pokémon.

Look for signs at the Pokémon World Championships for distribution times and instructions on how to get Meloetta. Meloetta

The official Pokémon website has announced that visitors to the 2017 Pokémon World Championships at the Anaheim Convention Center will be able to get an Alolan Exeggutor from August 18th, 2017 until August 20th, 2017.

Get an Alolan Exeggutor!

Anaheim, California is covered with palm trees, but there is one Pokémon that rises above them all—Alolan Exeggutor! You can get an Alolan Exeggutor for your copy of Pokémon Sun or Pokémon Moon by stopping by the Anaheim Convention Center during the 2017 Pokémon World Championships. This Alolan Exeggutor may not be the fiercest Pokémon on your team if you're playing competitively, but its Harvest Ability will prove extremely valuable, and it arrives knowing the unique move Celebrate, which it can only learn through this distribution.

Look for signs at the Pokémon World Championships with directions on how to get Alolan Exeggutor via local wireless. You'll need your own system in the Nintendo 3DS family and a copy of Pokémon Sun or Pokémon Moon to get the Alolan Exeggutor.
