Gamers in Japan will ring in the year with a special Inkay, to anyone who visits one of the Nintendo’s Pokemon Center stores, Siliconera reported on Monday.

Originally, the Pokemon was only supposed to be available only in the Pokemon Center store in Osaka, but now has been made available in every store in the country.

According to the report, this Inkay will come with the Happy Time ability, which will double the amount of money paid for battle wins. The ability can not be found anywhere else in the game- it can also not be taught to another Pokemon. This special Inkay also comes with the moves Foul Play, Hypnosis and of course, Topsy-Turvy.

No exclusive new year Pokemon have been announced in North America. Inkay will be available until January 26.
