A wild Pokémon X and Y new legendary appeared! As part of this morning's Nintendo Direct, the Pokémon Company announced the distribution of the time traveling legendary Celebi. The Pokémon X and Y new Celebi event is a promotion tied to the company's latest service Pokémon Bank. The Pokémon X Y event Celebi will be available for anyone that accesses Bank before September 30, 2014. Using Pokémon Link, Bank users will be able to receive the level 10 legendary. If this doesn't convince gamers to use the Pokémon X and Y new cloud service, we're not sure what would.
PSA: Don't forget to receive your complimentary Torchic while you still can! The Hoenn starter with Speed Boost and Blazikenite will only be available for a little while longer. Get Torchic in those Pokémon X and Y carts by January 15!
The event Celebi won't be shiny or level 100 like other gift legendaries, gamers still get a pretty good deal. The Pokémon X and Y new promotion gives trainers a level 10 Celebi, equipped with Recover, Heal Bell, Hold Back (a move similar to False Swipe) and Safeguard. Unfortunately you will not be able to go back in time in-game to Kanto, Johto, etc. nor in real life.
The news of Celebi joining our team is certainly great to hear. Long gone are the days of Pokémon events not reaching the western hemisphere. We personally can't wait to make use of the Pokémon X and Y new event legendary in battle. According to the Pokémon Bank site,
"When you use Pokémon Bank, you will be able to receive a special Pokémon: Celebi! To receive it, use the Pokémon Link function in the Pokémon X or Pokémon Y game that you used to deposit your Pokémon in Pokémon Bank. Only one special Pokémon is available per copy of Pokémon Bank. Even if you store Pokémon from multiple games, you can get only one Celebi!"
We speculated a while back that Celebi may make its way to our Pokémon X Y carts. The question remains: will we see more of the uncovered legendaries reveal themselves soon? With screens of Kyurem and Lugia having been shared online, it's possible we may see them, along with their partners in legendary-ness Ho-Oh, Dialga and Palkia, appear in a future promotion. In addition to these oldies but goodies, the Pokémon X and Y new legendaries of Diancie, Hoopa and Volcanion have yet to be unveiled as well. Maybe we can send Celebi to tell them stop being so shy.
Will you be obtaining Celebi from Pokémon Bank? What Pokémon X and Y new legendaries would you like to see offered? Let us know in the comments!
