The level 100 Genesect comes with the Download ability plus the following moves: Techno Blast, Magnate Bomb, Solar Beam and Signal Beam.

- Boot up either X, Y, Omega Ruby or Alpha Sapphire and select the option for ‘Mystery Gift’ on the main menu.
- Then select ‘Receive Gift’.

- Select ‘Yes’ when asked if you want to connect to the internet.
- Solve a Rubix Cube while the 3DS connects to the ‘Information Super Highway’.
- When asked if you want to ‘Receive this gift?’ say ‘Yes’.
- Once received, your new level 100 Genesect can be obtained from the delivery girl in any Pokémon Center. Make sure you have a vacant spot in your party. You’ll also receive a Wonder Card that can be found in the ‘Mystery Gift’ menu.
- And make sure to save your game!
