Nintendo have announced that gamers will be able to get Mythical Pokémon Hoopa for Pokémon X, Pokémon Y, Pokémon Omega Ruby, or Pokémon Alpha Sapphire from January 18 through January 29 via a special code distribution at select retailers in Australia and New Zealand. It will be available at EB Games, JB Hi Fi and Big W stores. It will be limited to one per person with no purchase necessary.
Hoopa is a Mythical Pokémon that cannot be encountered through regular gameplay, and is recognisable by its two horns and the golden ring that adorns its trunk. Hoopa’s rings are said to have the power to bend dimensions and move objects across great distances.
Players will need a copy of Pokémon X, Pokémon Y, Pokémon Omega Ruby, or Pokémon Alpha Sapphire as well as a system in the Nintendo 3DS family, and the Hoopa they receive will be in its Confined form. When Hoopa is in Pokémon Omega Ruby or Pokémon Alpha Sapphire, it can transform into the powerful Hoopa Unbound!
