EB Games, JB Hi-Fi handing out shiny Pokemon down under


Dilemma: You want free shiny Pokemon (and who doesn't, let's be honest), but having your home in Australia makes a trip to one of the giveaways at Gamestop in the US a little problematic. Solution: Just head over to your local EB Games instead, as they'll be offering the very same virtual gifts.

Legendary Pokemon Dialga, Palkia and Giratina will be on offer at participating EB Games in Australia and JB Hi-Fi Stores in New Zealand, Nintendo Australia has announced. Each Pokemon will be available one at a time, for two weeks.

You'll need your Pokedex and can have no more than 11 Wonder Cards in your possession. No purchase is necessary, though we're sure EB wouldn't mind if you picked up a bauble or two. Find the schedule for each Pokemon after the break.

  • Shiny Dialga: Friday, August 30, 2013 - Thursday, September 12, 2013
  • Shiny Palkia: Friday, September 13, 2013 - Thursday, September 26, 2013
  • Shiny Giratina: Friday, September 27, 2013 - Friday, October 11, 2013
