With Pokemon’s 20th anniversary upon us this year, Nintendo has been releasing the hardest-to-obtain, rare Pokemon to all players through downloadable Wi-Fi events. The first of these was arguably the most important, giving out the first legitimate Mew since the Gameboy era.

In the last two months, we were treated to a trio of legendaries from Pokemon X & Y. Zygarde, Yvetal and Xerneas, the latter two being in their shiny forms, which are unobtainable via normal gameplay.


Starting tomorrow, if you log on during June with any Gen VI Pokemon game (X, Y, Omega Ruby and Alpha Sapphire), you can get yourself a Manaphy, the Seafaring Pokemon!

Originally from Pokemon Diamond and Pearl, this water-type is the only legendary who can breed only with a Ditto. This is the only way to get Phione,another legendary water-type!


Here are the steps to get these goodies:

  • Go to the main menu of X, Y, Omega Ruby, or Alpha Sapphire
  • Mystery Gift
  • Receive Gift
  • Download via Internet.

If it’s worked, you should get a Wonder Card letting you know Manaphy is waiting for you in-game!

So turn on your DS, get yourself a sweet, free Pokemon, and get that Bike all greased up and ready to ride! It takes anywhere from 10,000 to 10,500 steps to hatch your Phione egg once you breed it. Don’t forget to use a Pokemon
with Magma Armor or Heat Body in your party (beside the egg in your party!) to halve that amount.

Train on, Pokemon fans!

Generally into anything to do with gaming, but I especially love classic 8- or 16-bit games to this day. Final Fantasy and Evangelion are my two favourite series. Figurines are another addiction of mine.
