Continuing its promised yearlong celebration of Legendaries, The Pokémon Company has revealed the Legendary Pokémon Regigigas and Heatran will be available to download for free from March 1st through the 24th.
Using the Nintendo Network download feature, players with a copy of Pokémon Ultra Sun or the original Sun will be able to acquire the Normal-type Regigigas, while Ultra Moon and Moon owners will receive the Fire/Steel-type Heatran. However, trainers are required to sign up for a free Pokémon Trainer Club account by March 1st to receive the download code.
Similar to February’s giveaway of Dialga and Palkia, both Legendaries will come battle-ready, meaning they’ll already have a full moveset, ability, and nature to make the creatures competitively viable. Owners of the Ultra games will get a bonus, though, as the Pokémon will arrive at level 100 with the rare Gold Bottle Cap held item. To see the list of moves and abilities offered, check out The Pokémon Company’s official chart:
While not as significant as the Pokémon Diamond, Pearl, and Platinum box art Legendaries—Palkia, Dialga, and Giratina—both Regigigas and Heatran also come from the Sinnoh region of the Pokémon world. While it’s still unclear why The Pokémon Company chose to kick off 2018’s free Pokémon with Legendaries from Generation IV, other fan-favorites from various generations are coming down the line. For example, the shiny version of Generation VI’s Zygarde is in the mix, which will give the creature a unique color swap from its original version.
