Much like the Torchic distribution for those who bought X & Y early last year, fans of the game will be rewarded with a Shiny Beldum. Also like the special Torchick, the Beldum will be holding its Mega-Stone, so once it eveolves into a Metagross (And you’ve received the Mega-Bangle to utilize Mega Evolution in game), you will be able to use your very own Shiny Mega Metagross! The event is distributed via WiFi, so once you have Omega Ruby or Alpha Sapphire all set, you are good to go! The event will be running from November 21st 2014 -January 14th 2015.
At long last North Americans can finally get their hands on the Mythical Pokémon Diancie since its introduction many many months ago.

In addition to the event, once players obtain Diancie they can transfer the Mythical Pokémon to Omega Ruby and Alpha Sapphire (Once the games launch on November 21st), and will be able to Mega Evolve Diancie once their mega stone is accessed. To receive your code simply ask the employees about the event and they will hand you your special card which contains the code. Cards are llimited so grab yours as soon as possible!
