Johto Starters with Hidden Abilities to be Distributed to ‘Pokemon Bank’ Users

Pokemon Bank subscribers who access their accounts between February 27th and November 30th will receive Meganium, Typhlosion, AND Feraligatr with their Hidden Abilities. All three Pokemon will come to you at Level 50. To receive them, you need to use Pokemon Link in any Gen VI game after accessing Pokemon Bank with the game you want to download them to.

Pokemon Bank Meganium, Typhlosion, AND Feraligatr

  • Meganium will come with the Hidden Ability Leaf Guard. Leaf Guard protects the Pokemon from status conditions when the sunlight is harsh or extremely harsh, and this Meganium knows Sunny Day—so it can change the weather to take advantage of its own Hidden Ability.
  • Typhlosion will have the Hidden Ability Flash Fire, which boosts the power of Fire-type moves by 50% and prevents this Pokemon from taking damage if hit with a Fire-type move. This Typhlosion knows Overheat, Flamethrower, and Flame Charge, maximising the advantage Flash Fire provides.
  • Feraligatr possesses the Hidden Ability Sheer Force, which eliminates the additional effects of moves used by the Pokemon, while increasing the move’s power by 30%. This Feraligatr already knows three moves that have additional effects. Thanks to Sheer Force, it can deal major damage with these moves.
