Pokemon’s Free Legendaries For October 2018 Revealed, Here’s How To Get Them

October is here, which means The Pokemon Company is giving away a new pair of Legendary Pokemon for Ultra Sun and Ultra Moon. We’re in the penultimate month of the Year of Legendary Pokemon promotion, and this time around, you’ll be able to get your hands on the cover mascots from Pokemon Black and White: Reshiram and Zekrom.

Once again, if you live in the US, you’ll need to travel to a specific retailer to pick up a download code for the Legendaries. This time, the code is being distributed in the electronics section of Target stores from October 19-28. Those who live in Europe and Australia, meanwhile, will be able to get the Pokemon without leaving the comfort of their home; the Legendaries are being given out over the Nintendo Network in those regions from October 5-21.

As usual, the Legendaries can be redeemed in any seventh generation Pokemon game on 3DS, but which one you receive depends on the version you’re playing. Those with Sun or Ultra Sun will get Zekrom, while players who have Moon or Ultra Moon will get Reshiram. The Pokemon will also come with different levels and movesets depending on your game. You can see all of the details below.

You can redeem your download code for the Legendaries using the Mystery Gift feature from the games’ main menu. After selecting it, choose the option to receive your gift with a code/password, then input your download code when prompted. If you live in Europe or Australia, you’ll need to select the option to receive your gift via the internet. Once that’s done, the Pokemon will be downloaded into your game. You’ll then need to pick it up from the deliveryman waiting inside any Pokemon Center.

Reshiram and Zekrom aren’t the only free Pokemon you can get this month; The Pokemon Company is also giving away the Mythical Pokemon Zeraora at GameStop from October 19 – November 19. On top of that, you can still pick up a code for a Shiny Poipole until October 7. You can check out all of the other free Pokemon available now for Ultra Sun and Ultra Moon in our roundup.
