Pokemon Omega Ruby/Alpha Sapphire owners can score a free Diancie this weekend

If you didn’t manage to snag the extremely rare event Pokemon, the Rock/Fairy-type, Diancie during the EB Games/Gamestop event from late last year, you’ll have another shot to get one, but only for a very short time!

Diancie - Distribution ArtFor this weekend only, namely from Friday, July 24th to Monday, July 27th, Nintendo is offering owners of Pokemon Omega Ruby and/or Pokemon Alpha Sapphire a free Lv. 50 Diancie, which can be attained from any online access point, including from your own home, using the Mystery Gift function. As long as you have your 3DS/2DS hooked up to the internet, you can select Mystery Gift, then specify that you’re looking for a gift online, and Diancie will be yours!

This special event Diancie is only being offered for Pokemon Omega Ruby and Pokemon Alpha Sapphire, and sadly won’t be attainable using the Mystery Gift function in Pokemon X or Pokemon Y, though if you own multiple 3DS/2DS handhelds, you can easily trade it back and forth to your copy of Pokemon X and/or Pokemon Y from your copy of Pokemon Omega Ruby or Pokemon Alpha Sapphire. Regardless, this Diancie will know the moves, “Diamond Storm”, “Moonblast”, “Dazzling Gleam”, and “Protect.”

That’s not all you can look forward to when bringing Diancie into your copy of Pokemon Omega Ruby and/or Pokemon Alpha Sapphire either! If you bring Diancie into any Pokemon Center in Hoenn, you’ll receive a free Diancite, which will allow you to Mega Evolve Diancie into Mega Diancie! Don’t forget to take this additional step, to really get the most out of your super rare present!Diancie - Gameplay

Diancie is unattainable through normal gameplay in any Pokemon game, and can only be caught through special Nintendo-sponsored events like this one. Thus, make sure to hop on Mystery Gift this weekend and snag your Diancie, since no one knows when the next opportunity to catch one will come along!
