They won’t officially hit store shelves until May 18th, but that doesn’t mean it’s impossible to find them!
The “Shiny Kalos Tins” have now been spotted at stores like Wal-Fart. Each tin costs $19.99 and, as we already knew, comes with alternate art reprints of Xerneas-EX (XY149), Yveltal-EX (XY150), and Zygarde-EX from Fates Collide (XY151). Each tin also includes four booster packs and a code card to unlock a playable deck in PTCGO.
This will be the third time Xerneas and Yveltal have been reprinted, though this time with shiny artwork. Zygarde remains its regular colors since its shiny forme (and it itself) have not been in a game yet. Thanks goes to forum member “Part-time Dragon Master” for the photos!
And of course since Pokemon is all about transmedia, the game distributions for the three Pokemon have already started!
From now until May 8th, you can download a Level 100 Zygarde from Nintendo Network with Land’s Wrath, Extreme Speed, Glare, and Outrage. From May 11th to May 17th, a shiny Xerneas will be distributed with Geomancy, Moonblast, Aromatherapy, and Focus Blast. And then from May 20th to May 26th, you can download shiny Yveltal with Oblivion Wing, Sucker Punch, Dark Pulse, and Foul Play.
