The Pokémon Company and Nintendo have announced that early adopters of Pokémon Omega Ruby and Alpha Sapphire will get a free Shiny Beldum holding a Metagrossite Mega Stone as part of a limited-time character distribution when the games launch.

This Shiny Beldum will evolve into Shiny Metang and then into Shiny Metagross, and then players can use the Mega Stone to Mega Evolve Shiny Metagross into Shiny Mega Metagross. As well as this, three other Mega-Evolved Pokémon were announced: Mega Altaria, Mega Salamence, and Mega Lopunny. You can check them out in the trailer above.

Finally, Nintendo announced that players who enter Hoenn’s Pokémon Contest Spectacular for the first time will receive a special Cosplay Pikachu. As Nintendo explains: “Pikachu Rock Star knows the Steel-type move Meteor Mash, and Pikachu Pop Star can use Draining Kiss in battle, a Fairy-type move that is effective against Dragon-type Pokémon. Pikachu, Ph.D., can learn the Electric-type move Electric Terrain, while Pikachu Belle learns the beautiful Ice-type move Icicle Crash. Last but not least, Pikachu Libre can battle with Flying Press, a powerful Fighting-type move.”

Pokemon Omega Ruby and Alpha Sapphire are set to launch November 21 for Nintendo 3DS.
