PSA: Pokemon Omega Ruby/Alpha Sapphire 'Shiny Beldum' now available

Those looking to add a fresh shiny to their Pokemon Omega Ruby/Alpha Sapphire collection can do so right now.


Pokemon fans, remember that Shiny Beldum that was mentioned months before last week's Pokemon Omega Ruby and Alpha Sapphire release? Well, the special Pokemon is officially available, starting today. And it's bringing along with it the Metagrossite item that will evolve your Metagross into Mega Metagross.

The Pokemon Company previously teased the giveaway during the game's launch, but have confirmed that they have started giving the rare Pokemon away. Those looking to add a Shiny Beldum to their collection can get it through an in-game internet distribution that leaves the Pokemon in your Mystery GIft slot. Of course, you'll need a copy of either Omega Ruby or Alpha Sapphire to pick it up, so the giveaway will be active until January 14 to offer holiday flexibility.

For more on what Shiny Beldum (as well a Shiny Metang and Shiny Metagross) can do, watch the video below.

Ozzie has been playing video games since picking up his first NES controller at age 5. He has been into games ever since, only briefly stepping away during his college years. But he was pulled back in after spending years in QA circles for both THQ and Activision, mostly spending time helping to push forward the Guitar Hero series at its peak. Ozzie has become a big fan of platformers, puzzle games, shooters, and RPGs, just to name a few genres, but he’s also a huge sucker for anything with a good, compelling narrative behind it. Because what are video games if you can't enjoy a good story with a fresh Cherry Coke?
