Available only from special events, Meloetta is a legendary Pokémon with a unique ability: it can shift both form and type mid-battle, making it a formidable addition to your line-up. In Aria Forme, Meloetta is a Normal- and Psychic-type Pokémon; in Pirouette Forme, Meloetta shifts in to Normal- and Fighting-type.

Meloetta will be available in selected JB Hi-Fi, Target and EB Games stores from 4 March to 19 April. All you have to do is go in and request the Pokémon, making sure you have the following:

  • A Nintendo 3DS or Nintendo DS system

  • A copy of the Pokémon Black 2, Pokémon White 2, Pokémon Black or Pokémon White game

  • The Pokédex within the game

  • No more than 11 Wonder Cards in their possession
