Attention all Pokémon Trainers! Come get your free Shiny Pokémon today!    

by Daniel Boylan

What’s better than a Legendary Pokémon? A Shiny Legendary Pokémon that’s what! It might sound too good to be true but believe me, it’s happening.

Don’t fret if you missed July’s Shiny Xerneas giveaway because the fun hasn’t stopped yet!

Like a shining light at the end of a cave full of Zubats, Smyths Toys has got you covered.

From 17th August to 16th October, codes for a Shiny version of #717 himself–Yveltal, the Dark/Flying cover star of Pokémon Y, will be given out free to lucky trainers.

The code can be used in any game from the sixth generation of Pokémon titles (Pokémon Alola , Pokémon Y,)




As with Shiny Xerneas before, you’re dealing with a Level 100 beast so come prepared with all the badges in the game or you’ll have one disobedient Pokémon on your hands.

This time the moves you’ll have in store are Oblivion Wing, Sucker Punch, Dark Pulse and Foul Play, all damage dealing so it’s an all-out offensive!

There is no purchase necessary to avail of this offer, simply go to your local Smyths Toys Superstore and ask for your code which will give you access to your brand new Shiny Yveltal.

These codes are limited so don’t be greedy, make sure you share the Poké-love and tell your friends!




While in store you might even want to accessorise and pick up some awesome Pokéball Headphones or add to your collection of Pokémon Trading Cards, there’s loads of cool Pokémon merchandise to choose from.

Don’t forget about the upcoming Pokémon Sun and Pokémon Moon,  and your Shiny Y will be transferable to these games in the future!

What a time to be alive!


As for redeeming your code, it couldn’t be easier!

First, make sure your console is connected to the internet to download the Pokémon. Then simply go to the “MYSTERY GIFT” option on the main menu of your game of choice, followed by “RECEIVE GIFT”, and finally “GET WITH CODE”.

Remember to scratch gently with a coin while leaning on a hard surface, you don’t want to damage your code!

Once you enter it you’ll be presented with your brand new Shiny Pokémon.

This guy would make a great addition to anyone’s squad, so get down to your local Smyths Toys Superstore today!

Happy training!
