Starting this August 13, Nintendo will be giving away a free Heracross and Pinsir to players of Pokemon X and Y, respectively. Players who wish to net either of these two freebies will have to act fast, though, as the distribution event will end on September 17. If you miss that, you’ll have to acquire your own Heracross or Pinsir through some other means. Additionally, the free Pokemon will start at level 50 and will come with a few useful skills.
Details from the Pokemon Company:
The Lv. 50 Pinsir has an Adamant Nature and knows X-Scissor, Earthquake, Stone Edge, and Return. It will have one of two Abilities: the defensive Hyper Cutter Ability or Mold Breaker.
The Lv. 50 Heracross has an Adamant Nature and knows Bullet Seed, Pin Missile, Close Combat, and Megahorn. Its Ability, Swarm or Guts, will change to Skill Link during Mega Evolution.
Additionally, Gamestop will also do their own distribution event starting on August 18, this time offering the Mega Stones needed to Mega Evolve the two pokemon. The codes will only be available to US players and only until supplies last.
