Special Manaphy Event Starts June 1st!

Don’t miss out on this chance to get your very own Manaphy!

Following the Darkrai event that took place over the course of May, the next Pokémon in the Monthly Mythical Pokémon event series is Manaphy!  Starting June 1st, you’ll be able to download a special Manaphy Event Pokémon for your Generation VI Pokémon game of choice (X, Y, Omega Ruby and Alpha Sapphire).


Manaphy made its unofficial game debut in the Generation III spin-off game, Pokémon Ranger.  When the special Manaphy Egg is transferred to a copy of Pokémon Diamond & Pearl (and, eventually, Pokémon Platinum), a Trainer can hatch this unique egg into this mythical guardian of the ocean, Manaphy.  It had a starring role in the ninth Pokémon movie, Pokémon Ranger and the Temple of the Sea.

Manaphy also has the distinction of being one of the only Mythical Pokémon that can breed to make an offspring.  The Phione it produces, however, do not evolve.

For this Manaphy event, you’ll only need to connect online and receive your gift via the internet after selecting the Mystery Gift option in your Gen VI Pokémon games – no need to get a code from GameStop, EB Games, GAME, etc.

Don’t forget that June marks the debut of both the Manaphy 20th Anniversary plush as well as the Mythical Pokémon Collection – Manaphy special box set for the TCG, so be sure to grab them while you can!

The Manaphy event officially runs from June 1 until June 24, 2016.

The most adorable sea slug in the world!  Manaphy was such a pain in the butt to get back in the day, since you either needed to go to a special event or needed to own a copy of Pokémon Ranger.  If you missed out all those years ago, now’s the perfect opportunity to get a Manaphy of your very own!
