Get Another Group of Mega Stones

Four more Mega Stones are available for your Pokémon Sun or Pokémon Moon game.

Add more Mega Stones to your collection so you can Mega Evolve more Pokémon in Pokémon Sun and Pokémon Moon with a special code. When you enter the following password in your game, you'll receive Pidgeotite, Steelixite, Heracronite, and Houndoominite Mega Stones, the items needed for Pidgeot, Steelix, Heracross, and Houndoom to Mega Evolve during battle.

Mega Stones password: AZUL

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. The Pokémon you transfer will lose their items in the process, however, so this distribution is currently the only way to get these Mega Stones in Pokémon Sun or Pokémon Moon.

To get the four Mega Stones:
  1. Select Mystery Gift on the main menu.
  2. Select Receive Gift.
  3. Select Get with Code/Password, then Yes, and then Yes again to connect to the Internet.
  4. Enter your password.
  5. Watch as you receive the Mega Stones.
  6. Speak to the deliveryman in any Pokémon Center to pick up your Mega Stones.
  7. Be sure to save your game!

Enjoy bigger battles with the force of Mega Evolution in Pokémon Sun and Pokémon Moon with these awesome Mega Stones!

Niantic has announced that from May 5th, 2017 until May 8th, 2017, Pokémon GO will have an increased chance to encounter Grass-type Pokémon in the wild.

Worldwide bloom this weekend!

Trainers, Professor Willow's research into Pokémon habitats around the world has uncovered some interesting findings. His initial reports indicate that we’ll see an influx of Grass-type Pokémon sometime this weekend. These Pokémon will appear in the wild more frequently starting the afternoon of May 5, but only for a short period of time. We anticipate that Pokémon will return to their normal habitats on May 8, 2017 PDT.

Help us contribute to Professor Willow’s ongoing research by catching as many Grass-type Pokémon as possible this weekend. While you’re out with friends and family, don’t forget to document your findings using the Pokémon GO AR camera and share your screenshots on social media using #PokemonGO.

THE POKÉMON COMPANY INTERNATIONAL ANNOUNCES COLLABORATION WITH FRENCH KIDS FASHION RETAILER LA COMPAGNIE DES PETITS

London, UK— 21 April 2017 —The Pokémon Company International announced today that it has entered into a major collaboration with quality French children’s fashion brand La Compagnie des Petits, which will see a dedicated fashion collection for girls and boys launched across all stores in France, Belgium, and Luxembourg in May 2017.

Following on from last year’s record-breaking success of the Pokémon franchise, the new line will be promoted in stores starting on 2 May and will launch 12 May. The summer collection for boys and girls comprises over 20 different products including T-shirts, sweatshirts, bottoms, shorts, cardigans, hoodies, pyjamas and accessories. La Compagnie des Petits will provide the collection with exceptional window visibility, with products and banners taking over two windows in each store for two weeks starting from launch. The collaboration will last for a year, with a separate collection launching in the autumn.

Mathieu Galante, Senior Market Development Manager Europe for The Pokémon Company International, says: “We are delighted to be teaming up with La Compagnie des Petits for this major collaboration which will cement Pokémon’s fashion profile in France and the surrounding countries. Pokémon’s apparel ranges are flourishing across Europe at the moment, and this collaboration follows hot on the heels of highly successful partnerships with Zara and Undiz.”

The global phenomenon of Pokémon was first launched in Japan in 1996 as a role-playing game for Nintendo’s Game Boy system and reached the United States and Europe in 1998–99. The first generation of Pokémon games introduced the original 151 Pokémon. Today the Pokémon universe includes more than 800 Pokémon that players can catch, trade, and battle against their opponents in the quest to become the best Pokémon Trainer.

Pokémon has since grown into one of the most popular entertainment properties in the world. It is one of the most successful video game franchises of all time, with more than 280 million video games sold worldwide. In addition, 21.5 billion TCG cards have been shipped to 74 countries in 11 languages, and over 450,000 players take part in Pokémon events every year. There are also more than 900 episodes of the animated TV series, about to debut its 20th season on Gulli.

The Pokémon Company International is constantly innovating, with exciting new products such as Pokémon GO and the hugely successful Pokémon Sun and Pokémon Moon video games for the Nintendo 3DS family of systems. With a raft of new licensing deals, retail promotions, collaborations, and promotional partnerships due to be announced in the near future, 2017 is set to be another bumper year for Pokémon.
