    OOOOOOOOOH, free Zygardes~

    Greetings Valorains, [member='Aura'] with your unscheduled news update!

    So, a few days ago an unannounced Zygarde event began in the PAL region (Europe/Australia), and it started in North America a day later. It was quite odd, and a lot of people were surprised to see an active event that wasn't announced or even leaked to the public. But it seems that the Zygarde just came out a bit early, as Pokémon released a video on their official YouTube channel with the details for the Zygarde distribution, as well as the two that follow it. Note that the following dates only apply to the North American region, and the PAL region's (Europe/Australia) dates will be added when hey are announced.

    Zygarde is running from May 2nd - May 6th (not including the few days it was active prior), will be Lv. 100 and caught in a Cherish Ball. Proceeding Zygarde, a shiny Xerneas will be distributed from May 11th - May 17th, and it will be Lv. 100 and caught in a Cherish Ball. Finally, a shiny Yveltal will be distributed from May 20th - May 26th, and it will be Lv. 100 and caught in a Cherish Ball. All these Pokémon will know the last four moves they learn via level-up before reaching Lv. 100, and their regular abilities.
    This distribution mimics the one held in Japan to celebrate the release of the Pokémon XY&Z anime late last year/early this year, except Zygarde is being distributed first this time instead of last. It is unknown as to why there are gaps between the distributions, but if anything comes to light it'll be added here, including the PAL region dates.
    Thanks for reading! This is [member='Aura'], signing out until next time!
