Rayquaza is among the most dangerous Dragon-types across all of the Pokemon series. It's a massive beast, one so deadly that it's the only Pokemon that can lay claim to being a Smash Bros. boss. But even with its unique abilities and its intimidating presence, the question remains: Does it come in a darker color?
Fortunately, Pokemon Omega Ruby and Alpha Sapphire users can get their darker Rayquaza with the Shiny Rayquaza giveaway that's kicking off today. The shiny variant of this all-powerful Pokemon will come with the Dragon Ascent move already learned, allowing it to Mega Evolve without the aid of a stone. That means Rayquaza now has an item slot open for berries or other equipment.
Shiny Rayquaza is being released as a celebration of the new Pokemon TCG expansion, XY - Ancient Origins, which is now available across a number of retailers. However, picking up this Pokemon does not mean leaving the home. It can simply be picked up via the Nintendo Network and jumping online with a working copy of Pokemon Omega Ruby or Alpha Sapphire.
Shiny Rayquaza will be available from now until September 14. To see it in action, check out the video below.
