Pokemon Bank offering some nice freebies from now through November.

From now through the end of the year, Pokemon Bank users can receive three very desirable Pokemon from HeartGold and SoulSilver for free.

Meganium, Typhlosion, and Feraligatr, the three final forms of the starters from HeartGold and SoulSilver (Chikorita, Cyndaquil, and Totodile), are now available free of charge through the Pokemon Bank. This means that, even without having played either of those games, you can bring all three of them into Pokemon X, Y, Omega Ruby, or Alpha Sapphire.

In order to get your hands on them, you simply need to access the Pokemon Bank from one of those four games between now and November 30, 2015. Once you've done that, you'll access the Pokemon Link to download them.

All three come equipped with Hidden Abilities. Here's what the Pokemon Company has to say about each:

Meganium's Leaf Guard Hidden Ability protects the Pokémon from status conditions when sunlight is harsh or extremely harsh. Plus, this Meganium knows the move Sunny Day, allowing it to take advantage of its own Ability!

Typhlosion has the Flash Fire Hidden Ability, which powers up Fire-type moves by 50% and prevents this Pokémon from taking damage from Fire-type moves. With three strong Fire-type moves already in its arsenal, Typhlosion can make the most of Flash Fire in battle.

Feraligatr's Sheer Force Hidden Ability eliminates the additional effects of this Pokémon's attacks, but they will do an additional 30% damage instead. This Feraligatr knows three moves that have additional effects: Ice Punch, Crunch, and Waterfall. They won't cause their additional effect, but they'll all do huge damage!

Pokemon Bank launched last year as a way to help facilitate the transfer of Pokemon from game to game. You can store up to 3,000 Pokemon for a fee of $5 per year.
