To promote its debut in the Pokémon Trading Card Game in Fates Collide, Zygarde is current being distributed via Nintendo Network for PAL region games.


Zygarde is available from May 2 to 26, 2016 for Pokémon X and Y and Pokémon Omega Ruby and Alpha Sapphire. It is level 100 and knows the moves Land's Wrath, Extreme Speed, Glare and Outrage.

The page on the official site says that Zygarde will only be available for one week, but that page itself and the press release confirm it will be available until May 26. This is likely an error transferred from the US page, since the American region distribution only runs for one week.

The Zygarde distribution has actually been available since April 29, despite being intended to start on May 2, 2016.

The Zygarde distribution only runs for one week in the American region, but it is followed by distributions of Shiny Xerneas and Shiny Yveltal. For details on the American region distributions, see "Shiny Xerneas, Shiny Yveltal, Zygarde to be available via Nintendo Network for American region".
