Nintendo has announced a Pokémon Autumn to Remember; upcoming events happening in the Kalos Region of Pokémon X and Y, in anticipation of Pokémon Omega Ruby and Alpha Sapphire‘s release in November. The events will allow players to obtain a free Shiny Gengar as well as the newest creature to join the family, Diancie.

The full details regarding the special events can be found below, but here’s a brief summary: Go to GameStop between October 13 and 26 to get the special code card for Shiny Gengar, who will come holding a Gengarite Mega Stone. Then from October 27 to November 16, go BACK to GameStop to grab a code for Diancie. A special Diancite Mega Stone can be found in Omega Ruby and Alpha Sapphire, so all you need to do is transfer your newly gifted Diancie to the new game and you’re all set for greatness!

Shiny Gengar
First, Pokémon X and Pokémon Y players can snag a Shiny Gengar holding a Gengarite Mega Stone when they pick up a special code card from participating GameStop stores between October 13 and October 26. This Shiny Gengar can Mega Evolve into Shiny Mega Gengar during battles! Also available at participating GameStop locations starting October 13 is a Pokémon TCG: Gengar Spirit Link 2-pack. It includes two booster packs from the Pokémon TCG: XY—Furious Fists expansion, as well as the Gengar Spirit Link Pokémon Trainer card that debuts in the next Pokémon TCG expansion, XY—Phantom Forces.

Mythical Pokémon Diancie
Return to GameStop between October 27 and November 16 for a code card to receive the Mythical Pokémon Diancie in Pokémon X or Pokémon Y! After receiving Diancie, it can be transferred into Pokémon Omega Ruby or Pokémon Alpha Sapphire when those games launch on November 21 for the Nintendo 3DS family of systems. Once the Diancite Mega Stone has been obtained in the new games, players can Mega Evolve Diancie during battles!
