GameStop visitors have their first chance to download it for Ultra Sun and Ultra Moon

GameStop will give out a special Pokémon starting later this month, The Pokémon Company announced. It’s the mythical monster Zeraora, an electric type that was first shown off earlier this year.

As is often the case with legendary Pokémon, Zeraora’s reveal greatly predated its in-game debut. The Pokémon Company introduced it with a short teaser in April. Ahead of the release of a new trading card game expansion featuring the Pokémon, however, players can get Zeraora for their games via a download code.

The download code is compatible with Pokémon Ultra Sun and Pokémon Ultra Moon, the most recent Nintendo 3DS entries in the series. The giveaway begins Oct. 19 and runs until Nov. 9. The Pokémon Company says that the big cat-like dude will arrive at level 50, and it will carry the special Air Balloon item with it. The Air Balloon nullifies all ground-type damage; that’s a big deal for competitive players who would otherwise never pit an electric type against a ground type.
