"Pokémon X/Y" Distribution Event Nets You Heracross and Pinsir

Event lets players download the two Pokémon starting August 13

Nintendo wants to make it easier for Pokémon players to get their very own Heracross and Pinsir in Pokémon X and Pokémon Y, respectively. The pair is up to bat for the next distribution event, and they'll be available to download from August 13 through September 17. 



More details from The Pokémon Company: 

The Lv. 50 Pinsir has an Adamant Nature and knows X-Scissor, Earthquake, Stone Edge, and Return. It will have one of two Abilities: the defensive Hyper Cutter Ability or Mold Breaker.


The Lv. 50 Heracross has an Adamant Nature and knows Bullet Seed, Pin Missile, Close Combat, and Megahorn. Its Ability, Swarm or Guts, will change to Skill Link during Mega Evolution.


In addition to Nintendo offering up the creatures for download, GameStop will be giving code unlocks for the Mega Stones needed to Mega Evolve them to players in the US. Codes will be available starting August 18 while supplies last.
