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.
