Pokémon: Shiny Legendaries to be distributed from August

If you own any of the four games in the Pokémon Black & White family, you can get along to GAME UK stores from next month to pick up some exclusive rare Pokémon.

According to That VideoGame Blog, the special distribution event kicks off on August 30 with Shiny Dialga. A steel and dragon type featured on the cover of Diamond, Shiny Dialga will be available in-store for two weeks.

Next up is water and dragon type Shiny Palkia, from the cover of Pearl, who will be available from September 13 through September 26.

Finally, ghost and dragon type Shiny Giratina will be on offer from September 27 to October 11.

To pick up your Shiny Legendary, bring your DS and 3DS; a copy of Players will need a copy of Pokémon Black, Pokémon White, Pokémon Black 2 or Pokémon White 2; and have a save file with a Pokédex. Please note that if your save has more than 11 Wonder Cards, you won't get the bonus.
