Get Your Shiny Rayquaza before Sept 14th!

Mega Rayquaza is a beast. Seeing as
every new game has at least one
super-powerful pokémon, I shudder
to think what could out beast this thing in
the next set of games...
Just a reminder to everyone, you'll want to get your Shiny Rayquaza before September 14th. You can download it from Mystery Gift when you connect to the internet. The Rayquaza already knows Dragon Ascent, so it can Mega evolve. However, this event is only for Omega Ruby and Alpha Sapphire and if you wanted to trade to X or Y you'll have to get rid of Dragon Ascent for a different move. It is still fully compatible with Pokémon Bank though, you just can't withdraw it to X or Y if it knows Dragon Ascent.

This Rayquaza is likely a tie in to the the previously released Ancient Origins card set, as the set has a shiny Mega Rayquaza EX card. Oddly enough, there is no Shiny Rayquaza EX so by Mega evolving you are essentially turning a regular Rayquaza into a shiny. Same goes for the Shiny Primal Groudon and Kyogre EXs from the set. It doesn't really matter so much, it's just a funny circumstance.

For those of you without Omega Ruby or Alpha Sapphire, only X and Y, I will be downloading a few extra in my Alpha Sapphire. I've never actually started a file on it, so I just use it to get events. I download the event, get my pokédex, dump the event on Bank, reset, and download again until I get tired of it. If you happen to have a spare of a different event, I'll gladly get you a Shiny Rayquaza, teach it something to get rid of Dragon Ascent, and trade it to you. I'm a nice guy like that.
