For just three weeks between March 4 and April 19, Pokémon Trainers across the country can add the long-awaited Mythical Pokémon Meloetta to their Pokédex via a special character distribution event at participating EB and Target retail stores Australiawide, and participating JB Hifi stores in New Zealand. s.
Meloetta is the rare and powerful Melody Pokémon that keeps opponents on their toes with its one-of-a-kind ability to alter Formes in the middle of battle. Players who attend the retail distribution event will receive Meloetta at Level 50 in its Aria Forme, in which it fights as a Normal- and Psychic-type Pokémon. If a battle calls for a change of tone, Meloetta can switch to its Pirouette Forme and become a Normal- and Fighting-type character—the first-ever Pokémon with such a type combination.
Meloetta changes Formes using Relic Song, a special damage-dealing move that can only be learned when Meloetta is added to your party and listens to the music of a guitar player at Café Sonata in Castelia City. When players receive Meloetta at the distribution, however, it will already be outfitted with a suite of powerful moves—Close Combat, Teeter Dance, Psychic, and Round. Players can find more information about the Meloetta distribution at Pokemon.com.
