London, UK—February 2, 2018—The Pokémon Company International today announced this year’s first Legendary Pokémon video game character distribution and launched the next expansion to the Pokémon Trading Card Game, Sun & Moon—Ultra Prism. Starting today, UK based Trainers can visit a participating GAME retail location, while those in Ireland can visit Gamestop, to receive the Legendary Pokémon Dialga or Palkia for their Pokémon Sun, Pokémon Moon, Pokémon Ultra Sun, or Pokémon Ultra Moon games for the Nintendo 3DS™ family of systems, while supplies last. The brand-new Pokémon TCG expansion is available at participating retailers and hobby shop locations across both countries, bringing new cards and the all-new Prism Star mechanic into play.

Both Dialga and Palkia are powerful Legendary Pokémon from the Sinnoh region, and each is a significant addition to any Trainer’s lineup. By visiting participating GameStop locations, players can receive a card with a secret code that can be redeemed in Pokémon Sun, Pokémon Moon, Pokémon Ultra Sun, or Pokémon Ultra Moon. Players will receive one of these Legendary Pokémon in their game, which one determined by the version they have, as well as an extra gift if redeeming in Pokémon Ultra Sun or Pokémon Ultra Moon. Distribution codes are available for free starting today, and will be available until February 28. For more information about this distribution, a new trailer that also features exclusive interview footage with developers at GAME FREAK about these Legendary Pokémon is available at https://youtu.be/zjWf-1xtJPI

Pokémon TCG: Sun & Moon—Ultra Prism brings more than 150 new cards into the game, including five Ultra Beasts, 18 new full-art cards, and six all-new Prism Star cards. These are powerful Pokémon and Trainer cards that, when played effectively, can dramatically alter the balance of a match. Due to their game-changing effects, a player can put only one Prism Star card with a given name in their deck (rather than the usual four). For more information on this expansion, check out a new trailer at https://youtu.be/B2qcbWiTrUI.
