Pokemon Ultra Sun and Moon players can grab a code for Shiny Poipole this month

Pokemon Ultra Sun and Ultra Moon players are being handed a Shiny Poipole this month.

Nintendo and The Pokemon Company are distributing an extra Pokemon this month to Pokemon Ultra Sun and Moon players.

Most of the Trainers who encountered the Ultra Beast Poipole in the games found it with its usual violet color. Later this month they will be able to add the Shiny version to their Pokemon collection.

This special Poipole will already know the move Dragon Pulse, which allows it to evolve into Naganadel as soon as it levels up. The Pokemon's other moves include Venom Drench and Nasty Plot.

Players in North America can pick up a Shiny Poipole code at participating GameStop stores September 17 - October 7.

Those who reside in Europe should visit their local Smyths Toys store September 17  -October 15.
