The Pokémon Company International today announced plans to celebrate a legendary year in 2018, highlighting some of the most sought-after Pokémon yet to be discovered. From February to November, Legendary Pokémon will be featured across the franchise, including monthly video game character distributions, new Pokémon Trading Card Game products, mobile game retail and animation promotions.

Legendary Pokémon are extremely rare and powerful Pokémon, which exist across all regions of the Pokémon universe. Often elusive and incredibly hard to catch, Legendary Pokémon hold the answers to Pokémon lore and are deeply rooted to the regions from which they originate. Fans can learn more about these Pokémon at https://www.pokemonlegendary.com/

“As a thank-you to all the Trainers out there who have been so committed and passionate about Pokémon over the years, we want to make 2018 a legendary year,” said J.C. Smith, senior director of Consumer Marketing for The Pokémon Company International. “We’re offering fans a chance to access these powerful Legendary Pokémon across the brand while celebrating their role in the franchise’s legacy.”

Each month this year from February to November, players will be able to receive a different Legendary Pokémon as a free distribution through many of the Pokémon brand’s partners for owners of PokémonTM Ultra Sun, Pokémon Ultra Moon, Pokémon Sun, and Pokémon Moon video games for the Nintendo 3DSTM family of systems. While fans can look forward to details about where and how to receive each of the distributions throughout the year, these Legendary Pokémon will be available to all players as part of the following schedule:
