This is players' first chance to get the mysterious Marshadow.


Nintendo has announced another distribution for Pokemon Sun and Moon. This time, players will have their first chance to add the recently revealed Mythical Pokemon Marshadow to their teams.

Like previous distributions, players can get their Marshadow by selecting the Mystery Gift option from the games' menu and choosing to receive the Pokemon "via code/password." After entering the code you received from GameStop, you can pick your Pokemon up from the deliveryman waiting inside any Pokemon Center.

The Marshadow giveaway will run for a much shorter time frame than previous distributions, ending on October 23, so Sun and Moon players will not want to miss their opportunity to add the rare Pokemon to their teams. In the meantime, GameStop is still distributing codes for a battle-ready Salazzle until September 4.
