Here’s your Mythical Pokemon release schedule for the game’s 20th anniversary

When your highly-successful franchise hits a big milestone, you have to celebrate. Especially when people are still buying and playing your games in droves. Yesterday we showed you the new Special Edition Pokemon 3DS, which will be released next month. But Nintendo has gifts coming for everyone, once a month, through the end of the year. And we’ve got the schedule.

With a game like Pokemon, it’s no surprise that Nintendo is planning to celebrate by releasing mythical monsters to celebrate. There will be a different mythical for each month of the year, starting in February. Why not this month? Well, the original Red and Blue flavors came out in February of 1996, so they wanted to wait to kick things off.

There are 11 mythical Pokemon to catch, as a part of the celebration. Here is the full release schedule, along with where you’ll be able to find them:

  • Mew: February 1 – 24, 2016 at GameStop
  • Celebi: March 1 – 24, 2016 at Nintendo Network
  • Jirachi: April 1 – 24, 2016 at Nintendo Network
  • Darkrai: May 1 – 24, 2016 at GameStop
  • Manaphy: June 1 – 24, 2016 at Nintendo Network
  • Shaymin: July 1 – 24, 2016 at Nintendo Network
  • Arceus: August 1 – 24, 2016 at GameStop
  • Victini: September 1 – 24, 2016 at Nintendo Network
  • Keldeo: October 1 – 24, 2016 at Nintendo Network
  • Genesect: November 1 – 24, 2016 at GameStop
  • Meloetta: December 1 – 24, 2016 at Nintendo Network

This is only the release schedule for North America. Obviously Japan and Europe will have some changes to where they are being distributed, but those have not been officially announced just yet.
