Legendary Pokémon Palkia and Dialga

Want to download the Legendary Pokémon Palkia and Dialga to Pokémon Sun, Ultra Sun, Moon, or Ultra Moon? Here’s how.

The year-long Legendary Pokémon celebration has begun with free download codes now available for Palkia and Dialga. Palkia is available for owners of Pokémon Sun and Ultra Sun, whilst Dialga can be downloaded to Pokémon Moon and Ultra Moon.

Codes can be picked up until the end of February from participating branches of Game in the UK, and GameStop in the US. They need to be redeemed by May 28, 2018.

Each Legendary is slightly different. The level 100 Ultra Sun version of Palkia features the Pressure ability, plus the Spacial Rend, Aura Sphere, Draco Meteor, and Hydro Pump moves. The Level 60 version for Sun has the same ability, plus the Aura Sphere, Aqua Tail, Spacial Rend and Hydro Pump moves.

The level 100 Ultra Moon version of Dialga also features the Pressure ability, and is armed with Roar of Time, Aura Sphere, Draco Meteor, and Flash Cannon. The Level 60 version for Moon has the same ability, plus the Aura Sphere, Iron Tail, Roar of Time, and Flash Cannon moves.
