Marshadow Distribution Event for Pokémon Sun and Moon Coming to NA GameStop Locations

Don’t be afraid of the dark: Pokémon Sun and Pokémon Moon trainers will soon be able to grab the mythical darkness Pokémon Marshadow from their local GameStop. 

Up until now, details on the shady Ghost/Fighting type Pokémon have been scarce, leaving many trainers stuck behind a veil of mystery. However, The Pokémon Company has finally blown the lid off on Marshadow, detailing the exact level, moveset, and ability that the shadowy creature will come with. 

The mysterious Marshadow will soon be able to step out from the shadows and into your Pokémon Sun or Pokémon Moon game. To get the newly discovered Mythical Pokémon, stop by your local participating GameStop store from October 9–23 and pick up a code that will unlock Marshadow in your game.

As the only known Fighting- and Ghost-type Pokémon, Marshadow brings a unique twist to battle. When it unleashes an attack, its body turns green thanks to its burning fighting spirit. The Pokémon you’ll receive is ready for action with its signature Spectral Thief attack, which not only does damage but steals the stat boosts of its target. The power of the Marshadow you can get at GameStop doesn’t stop there—it also comes holding its special Z-Crystal Marshadium Z, allowing it to strike hard with its signature Soul-Stealing 7-Star Strike Z-Move!

This first opportunity to get Marshadow won’t last long. If you want to get this amazing Pokémon, be sure to visit GameStop from October 9–23. Then get ready to shine in battle with the Mythical Pokémon Marshadow in Pokémon Sun and Pokémon Moon!
