It’s the beginning of a new month, so that means a new Mythical Pokemon is now available. Pokemon Trainers can now get Shaymin, a Generation IV mythical Pokemon, by using the Mystery Gift function in Pokemon X, Pokemon Y, Pokemon Omega Ruby and Pokemon Alpha Sapphire.
Shaymin is very unique in that it has two Formes, a “Land Forme” and a “Sky Forme”. While in Land Forme, Shaymin resembles a grassy hedgehog (and is a Grass Type Pokemon), while the Sky Forme resembles a small deer (and is Grass/Flying). Shaymin switches Formes using a Gracidea flower, an item that can only be found while having a Shaymin on your team. The Gracidea is available in Snowbelle City in Pokemon X/Y and from the Berry Master in Route 123 in Pokemon Omega Ruby/Alpha Sapphire.
The next mythical Pokemon in the lineup to be distributed will be the legendary Pokemon Arceus in August.
