The lights are on
In anticipation of the upcoming Pokémon X & Y games for 3DS, The Pokémon Company is holding Pokémon distribution events at select GameStop locations in August, September, and October. Those who bring copies of Pokémon Black, White, Black 2, or White 2 along with their Nintendo DS or 3DS will be able to collect shiny versions of the fourth-generation legendary monsters – Dialga, Palkia, and Giratina.
The first event starts on Monday, August 19 and runs through September 8, during which players can get a shiny Dialga, the Pokémon Diamond cover monster. Palkia, the cover mascot from Pokémon Pearl, will be available in shiny form from September 9-29. Giratina, from Pokémon Platinum, will be available from September 30 through October 20. Check out all three sprites in the image below.
Players will need to have unlocked the Pokédex within the game and have no more than 11 wonder cards to be eligible. Call your local GameStop to determine if it will be participating in the 21-day events.
Pokémon X & Y will launch worldwide on October 12.

Our TakeThe dragon trio of Sinnoh in shiny form is extremely difficult to acquire in Pokémon Black/White under normal conditions, so these events could be invaluable for avid collectors. Don’t miss this chance to get three incredibly rare specimens.
These events are always pretty cool. Not a bad way to lead into the new generation of Pokemon games.
hope its near in my local gamestop!
Could this possibly be related to X and Y? I am curious, because if I remember correctly, transferring one of the shiny trio they offered before Black and White came out allowed you to capture Zoroark, or by transferring the shiny Celebi they offered you were able to get Zorua. It could also be shiny legendaries for the sake of shiny legendaries, but I want to think this could be more than that.
I think that this may trigger an event in pokemon X & pokemon Y, i remember they gave away the 3 legendary dogs(Suicune, Entei, and Raikou)in a shiny form that trigger the Zoroark event in B&W, too bad i can´t pick this up(i really like the Giratina shiny sprite)
AWWW YEAH!!!!!!!!!!!!!! I love this and I can't wait for Pokemon X/Y!!!!!!!!!!!!!
I smiled so hard when I saw the news this morning but disappointed that it's still a few weeks away. I can't wait to snag that shiny Giratina!
Me like Shiny!
Love it. For somebody like me, who refuses to use Pokegen, this is fantastic. I don't feel like soft resetting hundreds of times to get a shiny legendary.
