Pokemon owners get special Dragonite from GameStop in June

The Pokemon Trading Card Game has released its latest expansion and to celebrate, The Pokemon Company is about to distribute special Dragonites to owners of the latest Pokemon 3DS games.


Today is a big day for trading card game players, as The Pokemon Trading Card Game has received its latest expansion, XY - Roaring Skies. To celebrate this occasion, Nintendo and The Pokemon Company are throwing a little something to 3DS Pokemon players, as well, in the form of a leveled-up Dragonite.

Starting on June 22, anyone that owns Pokemon Omega Ruby, Alpha Sapphire, X, or Y can walk into a GameStop today and pick up a special card with a code for a level 55 Dragonite. This Dragonite will come equipped with the move "Extreme Speed," the Normal-type move that always attacks first for a base 80 damage. With Dragonite's high Attack rating, this is a devastating addition to the Dragon/Flying-type monster's move set. Its other moves include the stat-boosting Dragon Dance, the flinch-inducing Hurricane, and the powerful Dragon-type attack Outrage. It'll also carry a Lum Berry to take care of any nasty conditions.

The promotion will run from June 22 through July 12, so it'll be a while before you can pick this guy up. In the meantime, the Pokemon: TCG game on iOS has a new update today adding about 100 of those new Roaring Skies cards. For more on the Dragonite, check out 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?
