Weekly Wrap Up is our end of the week digest of smaller news stories that are just as important, but didn’t get a dedicated post. If you’d like to get real time updates about what’s mentioned here you can follow our Facebook, Twitter, and Instagram pages. Here’s what you missed from September 18th to September 24th!
Ash Hat Pikachu Event
- Quick reminder that the Original Ash Hat Pikachu is available via Mystery Gift until tomorrow (September 25th) using the code PIKACHU20. This Pikachu wears the original hat Ash wore in the anime while traveling through Kanto and Johto, and comes with the moves Thunderbolt, Quick Attack, Thunder and Agility. Remember, you can only choose one of the Ash Hat Pikachu via this method. More details on the Ash Hat Pikachu distribution can be found on its dedicated post
- For those in Europe, more distribution details have been revealed:
- Belgium – September 30th to October at the GameForce event
- Netherlands – October 7th & 8th at the 1st abd Firstlook event
- Spain – Amazon Spain will be distributing codes for Marshadow alongside pre-orders for Pokémon Ultra Sun & Ultra Moon
Pokkén Tournament DX
- Special codes to get clothes for your in-game avatar have been revealed via multiple official channels! These codes work across all regions, are redeemable through the Special Code feature of the game, and come in pairs – one code for masculine style avatars, and one for feminine style avatars:
- TC2JY22VBQUU (M) & J7XEEQLYNDMT (F) – These codes provide 20 T-Shirts, one for each playable Pokémon in the game, minus Shadow Mewtwo
- NQLMEMRGX37X (M) & 6GSSALLDM9RL (F) – These codes give the player leather jackets
Takara Tomy USUM Z-Ring Toy
- New images have surfaced online showing three new Z-Crystal attachments used with the Ultra Sun & Ultra Moon Takara Tomy Z-Ring toy that will be available at its release on November 17th. The red Z-Crystal appears to be Lycanium Z, while the yellow Z-Crystal is most likely representing Kommoium-Z. Based on its purple color it’s safe to say that the middle one is related to a Ghost-type – most likely Mimikyu when looking at USUM’s first trailer. This is evidence to suggest that even more exclusive Z-Moves will be revealed for, and be available in Ultra Sun & Ultra Moon
