Want to download Mythical Pokémon Keldeo to Pokémon Omega Ruby, Alpha Sapphire, X or Y? Here’s how you do it.
To celebrate Pokémon’s 20th Anniversary a new Mythical Pokémon is being made available to download every month throughout 2016.
This month’s Mythical Pokémon – Keldeo– was originally encountered in Pokémon Black and White in Ordinary Form and – after learning the Secret Sword move – in Resolute Form in the sequels, Black 2 and White 2
The downloadable Keldeo is a level 100, Ordinary Form and comes with the following moves: Aqua Jet, Leer, Double Kick, and Bubble Beam. However, a quick trip to Mauville City’s Move Tutor in Omega Ruby or Alpha Sapphire will let you teach it the Secret Sword move.
Keldeo can be downloaded between 1st-24th October 2016 by connecting your Nintendo 3DS to the internet and following a few simple steps.
How to download Keldeo
- Charge up your 3DS, turn it on and make sure you can connect to the internet.
- Boot up either Omega Ruby, Alpha Sapphire, X or Y and choose the ‘Mystery Gift’ option on the main menu.
- Then choose ‘Receive Gift’.
- You’ll be asked if it’s OK to open a Communication Channel. Say ‘Yes’.
- Then select ‘Get via Internet’.
- Select ‘Yes’ when asked if you want to connect to the internet.
- Maybe watch the Lord of the Rings trilogy while the 3DS does its thing.
- When asked if you want to ‘Receive this gift?’ say ‘Yes’.
- Once received, your new level 100 Keldeo can be retrieved from the delivery girl who will be standing 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!
Genesect will be available via the Nintendo Network next month, followed by Meloetta in December.
