Use the following special code to unlock five powerful Mega Stones that can trigger Mega Evolution in battle.

Five more Mega Stones can now be yours when you enter the code below in your Pokémon Sun or Pokémon Moon game. With this code, you'll get a Sceptilite, Blazikenite, Swampertite, Cameruptite, and a Banettite, the Mega Stones necessary to Mega Evolve five Pokémon originally from the Hoenn region: Sceptile, Blaziken, Swampert, Camerupt, and Banette.

These Pokémon aren't available in the wild in Pokémon Sun or Pokémon Moon, but you can bring them into Pokémon Bank via Poké Transporter from earlier games.

  3. Select Get with Code/Password, then Yes, and then Yes again to connect to the Internet.
  4. Enter your special code.
  5. Watch as you receive the Mega Stones.
  6. Speak to the delivery person in any Pokémon Center to pick up your Mega Stones.
  7. Be sure to save your game.

Go all-out the next time you battle with Mega Evolutions of these powerful Pokémon in Pokémon Sunand Pokémon Moon!

The Mythical Pokémon Marshadow's secrets are coming to light!

The Pokémon Company International announced more official details for the Mythical Pokémon Marshadow. Details about its distribution in Japan were announced on the Movie 20 website but today's press release indicates that for the rest of the world, the distribution details will be announced at a future date.

The Mythical Pokémon Marshadow's secrets are coming to light!

The Gloomdweller Pokémon Marshadow is the first Fighting- and Ghost-type Pokémon, and it has its own exclusive Z-Move: Soul-Stealing 7-Star Strike!

Among the numerous Pokémon discovered to date, Marshadow is the first to combine Fighting type and Ghost- type. Marshadow is able to conceal itself in the shadows, and it never appears before humans, so its very existence was previously thought to be a myth.

Marshadow can sink into the shadows of others and copy their moves and power. Fighting-type Pokémon are usually weak in battle against Psychic-type Pokémon, but with Marshadow, you’ll be able to take advantage of its Ghost-type abilities to battle effectively!

When standing up to enemies with its full power, parts of Marshadow's body turn green, thanks to its burning fighting spirit.

Spectral Thief is a new move which only Marshadow can learn. This move steals any stat boosts that the target had and then deals an attack. It’s a powerful physical move with a surprising effect. Change a crisis into a chance, and victory may be within your reach!

Once Marshadow knows Spectral Thief, the special Z-Move Soul-Stealing 7-Star Strike can be used. Marshadow must also be holding the special Z-Crystal Marshadium Z, which cannot be obtained through regular gameplay, to perform this Z-Move.

More details, including how Trainers can get this Pokémon for their game, will be announced at a future time.

During Pokémon Direct, viewers also saw the first footage from the newest titles in the Pokémon series, Pokémon Ultra Sun and Pokémon Ultra Moon. Two new Pokémon forms were shown resembling that of the Legendary Pokémon Solgaleo and Lunala. Pokémon Ultra Sun and Pokémon Ultra Moon have been powered up with new additions to the story and features from Pokémon Sun and Pokémon Moon. Pokémon Ultra Sun and Pokémon Ultra Moon are scheduled to release worldwide on 17 November 2017—more information about the games will be revealed later this year.

Also announced, the second titles in the Pokémon series, Pokémon Gold and Pokémon Silver, will be making their way to the Nintendo 3DS Virtual Console. Pokémon Gold and Pokémon Silver were released in Japan on 21 November 1999, as the second set of titles in the Pokémon series. These games, which debuted as Game Boy Color-titles in Japan, are being recreated into Virtual Console versions such that their screens appear just as they did on the Game Boy Color. Both titles will be compatible with the wireless communication features of the Nintendo 3DS and Trainers can look forward to Link Trades and Link Battles between Virtual Console versions of Pokémon Gold and Pokémon Silver. In addition, these titles will be compatible with the Time Capsule function, which allows players to Link Trade Pokémon between the Virtual Console versions of Pokémon Gold or Pokémon Silver and the Virtual Console versions of Pokémon Red, Pokémon Blue, or Pokémon Yellow in Pokémon Centers within the games. Both titles will be compatible with Pokémon Bank and will launch this fall.
