Pokémon continues to celebrate 20 years with the appearance of the Mythical Pokémon Shaymin!
Shaymin made its first appearance in Pokémon Diamond and Pokémon Pearl, and fans can now get Shaymin with the same moves it had back then, including Seed Flare, Aromatherapy, Substitute, and Energy Ball. This extremely rare Mythical Pokémon is now available and easily obtainable for players of Pokémon X, Pokémon Y, Pokémon Omega Ruby, and Pokémon Alpha Sapphire via Nintendo Network. Get this Lv. 100 Shaymin through July 24, 2016 and visit Pokemon.com/20 to learn how to get it!
Shaymin fans can also now get the Pokémon TCG: Mythical Pokémon Collection—Shaymin, which includes a special Shaymin promo card and a pin of the Mythical Pokémon. The limited time collection also contains two special Pokémon TCG: Generations booster packs. Pokémon toy collectors can get a Clip ’n’ Carry Poké Ball with two-inch Shaymin figure from TOMY International at participating Toys“R”Us stores while supplies last.
Watch Shaymin in Pokémon: Giratina & the Sky Warrior, and watch as Ash and friends get help from Shaymin as they track down Zero, a researcher who wants to harness Giratina’s power...and risks destroying the world! The digitally remastered movie is available now for download on iTunes, Google Play, and Amazon Video.
More Shaymin details can be found at Pokemon.com/20. Fans visiting the site throughout the year will find information about monthly Mythical Pokémon character distributions, retail events, special products, messages from some of Pokémon’s biggest fans, and the upcoming Pokémon Photo Booth app.
Nintendo have filed a copyright claim against the campaign. I have taken lots of legal advice prior to launching the campaign plus I also spoke to Nintendo UK. The use of game imagery is completely legal under FAIR USE' law.
I have now made some little tweaks to the campaign to make it even more watertight but I wholeheartedly believe that the book is 100% above board.
WHAT HAPPENS NOW
Don't panic! The campaign is under review whilst I talk to Nintendo. Your pledge is safe and in the unlikely case I'm unsuccessful, it will go right back to you as it would with any stopped campaign. There's no need to panic and cancel your funding as your money is not at risk.
The campaign is essentially 'frozen' as is the timer. So fingers crossed when we're live again, the clock will start from with 24 hours left and we can complete the campaign.
The whole thing is frustrating but please stick with me. I've invested a lot of time and energy ensuring that this is legal and above board.
Will update you when I have some news.
