Want to download the Legendary Pokémon Regigigas and Heatran to Pokémon Sun, Ultra Sun, Moon, or Ultra Moon? Here’s how.
The year-long Legendary Pokémon celebration continues with free downloads for Regigigas and Heatran. And the best news? There’s no need to go to GameStop this time. They can be downloaded for free via the Nintendo Network to copies of Pokémon Sun, Ultra Sun, Moon, and Ultra Moon. The promotion runs from March 1-24, 2018
Each Legendary is slightly different depending on the game its downloaded to. The level 100 Ultra Sun version of Regigigas features the Slow Start ability, plus the Crush Grip, Drain Punch, Zen Headbutt, and Heavy Slam moves. The Level 60 version for Sun has the same ability, plus the Zen Headbutt, Revenge, Dizzy Punch, and Confuse Ray moves.
The level 100 Ultra Moon version of Heatran features the Flash Fire ability, and is armed with Magma Storm, Heat Wave, Earth Power, and Flash Cannon. The Level 60 version for Moon has the same ability, plus the Crunch, Scary Face, Lava Plume, and Fire Spin moves.
Don’t forget that there’s still time to download Legendary Palkia and Dialga, but you’ll have to be quick.
