Pokemon Bank Johto Starters Event
Yesterday, it was announced that Pokemon Bank users will exclusively be receiving a reward event where all three of the fully-evolved Johto Starter Pokemon — Meganium, Typhlosion, and Feraligatr are to be distributed. Those who access their Pokemon Bank account between February 27th and November 30th, 2015 will be given these Pokemon.
You can receive this trio through Pokemon Link on your copy of Pokemon X, Pokemon Y, Pokemon Omega Ruby, or Pokemon Alpha Sapphire; whichever game uses Pokemon Bank to qualify for the event.
Keep in mind that you can only receive these three Pokemon on each Pokemon Bank account once.
This event is great due to the fact that Meganium, Typhlosion, and Feraligatr have their Hidden Abilities. Here’s the breakdown of what those Hidden Abilities are and what they can do for you in your battles:
Meganium (Leaf Guard): Protects the Pokemon from status conditions involving harsh sunlight. Since Sunny Day is one of the moves this event Meganium knows, this hidden ability gives it an even bigger advantage.
Typhlosion (Flash Fire): Powers up fire-type moves by 50% and prevents this Pokemon from taking damage from fire-type moves. This event Typhlosion has three fire-type moves in its move-set which can be very useful thanks to this hidden ability.
Feraligatr (Sheer Force): Eliminates the additional effects of this Pokemon’s attacks, but in exchange, they will do an additional 30% in damage instead. This event Feraligatr knows Ice Punch, Crunch, and Waterfall — all moves with additional effects. As a result, Sheer Force omits those additional effects for boosted damage instead.
Until next time,
