There’s a brand new Pokémon Center opening in Tokyo, and developer The Pokémon Company isn’t one to let a moment pass without celebration. If you can get to the new store, you can pick up a Shiny Charizard or a Shiny Pikachu, just for being in the right place at the right time.
Which one you get could be a matter of waiting around: The two characters will be given away from December 12 until January 16, from 10am to 8pm each day, but only one at a time, and they’ll alternate each hour.
If you happen to be in Japan during that time frame, take your 3DS and your game – either Pokémon X or Y or Omega Ruby or Alpha Sapphire – and you’ll snag a Shiny Charizard (holding Charizardite Y) or a Shiny Pikachu.
Really. That’s all you have to do. The rest of the world will be left eternally jealous.
