Three Pokémon—Meganium, Typhlosion, and Feraligatr—to be distributed with Hidden Abilities
The Pokémon Company International and Nintendo have announced that subscribers to Pokémon Bank who access their account between 27 February and 30 November, 2015, will receive special versions of the Johto region Pokémon Meganium, Typhlosion, and Feraligatr.
These Pokémon are the final Evolutions of the first partner Pokémon from Pokémon HeartGold Version and Pokémon SoulSilver Version. Each is Level 50 and comes with a Hidden Ability that has not been accessible through normal gameplay before.
Pokémon Bank is an online service for players of the Pokémon X, Pokémon Y, Pokémon Omega Ruby and Pokémon Alpha Sapphire video games for Nintendo 3DS and Nintendo 2DS systems, which allows users to manage their Pokémon in designated Boxes.
Meganium will come with the Hidden Ability Leaf Guard. Leaf Guard protects the Pokémon from status conditions when the sunlight is harsh or extremely harsh, and this Meganium knows Sunny Day—so it can change the weather to take advantage of its own Hidden Ability.
Typhlosion will have the Hidden Ability Flash Fire, which boosts the power of Fire-type moves by 50% and prevents this Pokémon from taking damage if hit with a Fire-type move. This Typhlosion knows Overheat, Flamethrower, and Flame Charge, maximising the advantage Flash Fire provides.
Feraligatr possesses the Hidden Ability Sheer Force, which eliminates the additional effects of moves used by the Pokémon, while increasing the move’s power by 30%. This Feraligatr already knows three moves that have additional effects. Thanks to Sheer Force, it can deal major damage with these moves.
To receive these three Pokémon, players need to use Pokémon Link in their copy of Pokémon X, Pokémon Y, Pokémon Omega Ruby, or Pokémon Alpha Sapphire after they have accessed their Pokémon Bank using one of these games. Each Pokémon Bank account will be able to receive these three Pokémon only once.
