We are now in the final days of the Mythical Darkrai distribution, which means if you haven’t got your very own Darkrai yet, you have very little time left to do so. But if you have got yours already, it means brace yourself because next month is all about Manaphy!
Sure Manaphy is in no way as much of a badass as Darkrai, but Manaphy is a something of a badass in its own right, as it is the only Mythical Pokémon that you can actually breed! (Breeding with a Ditto results in getting an egg that will hatch into a Phione, who funnily enough does not evolve into a Manaphy.)
This Mythical will be sticking around from the same length of time as the others, from the 1st until the 24th of June and is available from the Nintendo Network. As for what moves, level & ability, the Lv.100 Manaphy has Hydration as its ability and the following moves:
The process to get Manaphy is a very simple one as you can easily do it in the comfort of your own home, provided you have a working internet connection, a 3DS and a copy of either ORAS, or X&Y. But in case you are not quite sure how the process works, or need a reminder, you can find our guide below:
How to Receive your Manaphy:
-First turn on your device, load up the game and access Mystery Gift.
-Click “Receive Gift,” then “Get Via Internet.”
-You will be asked: “You will be connected to the Internet. Would you like to continue?” Click “Yes” to confirm.
-Once a gift has been found (Manaphy,) you will be asked: “Receive this Gift?” Click “Yes.”
-You will see a box saying “Receiving your gift… Don’t turn off power.”
-Gift will then be received along with the associated Wonder Card. The card thanks you for playing Pokémon and tells you that you can pick up your gift from the delivery girl at any Pokémon Centre.
-Lastly, go to a Pokémon Centre of your choice, and speak to the delivery girl. She will then give you your Manaphy. (Whoooo!)
Should our guide not be clear enough and you feel you need further explanation, you could always use the link to the official Pokémon website and click on instructions:
It’s not only Mythical Pokémon you can get via Nintendo Network as there are many distribution events that occur during the year, although saying that, July’s Mythical Pokémon will also be distributed via the Nintendo Network and just in case you’ve forgotten who will be available in July, it is of course Shaymin! But that’s ages away, we still have the final days of Darkrai and an entire month of Manaphy to get through first!
