All 8 Pokémon Center locations in Japan will be distributing Gangar (ゲンガー) and Hassam (ハッサム) to players of Pokémon X and Y. The previous Ghost (ゴースト) and Strike (ストライク) 2013 Christmas Exchange was a very popular event according to the official Japanese Pokémon website. From Saturday February 1st, 2014 until February 28th, 2014 players have a chance to get Gangar and Hassam once again at the Pokémon Centers. This time though instead of trading with a Pokémon Center staff member, players can directly get Gangar and Hassam via a local wireless Mystery Gift.

Gangar and Hassam will be distributed at different times of the day. Each Pokémon is rotated hourly each day during the distribution time period. The table below lists the times and which one is being distributed at that time.
