Shaymin

As the 20th anniversary of Pokémon continues, Nintendo celebrates July with the Mythical Pokémon Shaymin. Originally premiering in Pokémon Diamond and Pearl, it has all the same moves it had back then, such as Seed Flare, Aromatherapy, Substitute, and Energy Ball. A level 100 Shaymin can now be obtained through Pokémon X, Pokémon Y, Pokémon Omega Ruby, and Pokémon Alpha Sapphire through the Nintendo Network. Hurry, the offer ends July 24th!

Furthermore, the cute Mythical Pokémon is featured in the Pokémon TCG: Mythical Pokémon Collection. The limited collection includes a special promo card and pin. Also, it contains two special Pokémon TCG: Generations booster packs. Participating Toys “R” Us stores are also offering a Clip ‘n’ Carry Poké Ball with two-inch Shaymin figure.
