Do you like shiny Pokemon but have terrible luck? Then has the Pokemon Company got a Mystery Gift for you. Running from November 21st-January 14th, players of Omega Ruby and/or Alpha Sapphire will be able to pick up a Shiny Beldum for their team. Yeah, a shiny pseudo-Legendary, pretty cool right? The Pokemon also has somewhat of an in-universe back story, with its Original Trainer being listed as Steven. As in Steven Stone of the Devon Corporation Stones. How prestigious.
Beldum comes ready to battle with a complete set of moves, being Hold Back, Iron Head, Zen Headbutt and Iron Defence. Which is a vast improvement over its appearance in the original Ruby and Sapphire, where Beldum could only learn Take Down. Additionally, and perhaps most importantly, is holding a special item: Metagrossite. So all you have to do is train the chrome arm/leg guy until level 45, whereupon you will net yourself a sweet new Mega Evolution. So what’re you waiting for? Go pickup your Beldum and enjoy. I did.
