A brand new distribution event pocket monster has been confirmed for "Pokemon X" and "Pokemon Y." According to a report from Gaming Bolt on May 13, Nintendo is planning to give away a shiny version of Mamoswin during the upcoming "Pokemon Video Game National Championships" that will be taking placed in various European countries later this month as well as June. Players can download the creature by just attending the events as they do not have to participate in the actual competitions.

Mamoswin was added to the roster with the releases of "Pokemon Diamond," "Pokemon Pearl" and other installments from the fourth-generation of the series. In "Pokemon X" and "Pokemon Y," the boar-like pocket monster also appeared as a non-playable character in which the player could ride and control. In addition to being used in battle, it is needed in order to navigate through the thick snow that covered Route 17 in between Anistar City and Dendemille Town.

Mamoswin is the final evolution form of Swinub. The distribution event version features a somewhat unique look when compared to the regular iteration of the species. Players will also be getting a creature that has already reached the level of 50 and comes with an ability called Thick Fat. It is also equipped with the following four attack moves: Earthquake, Icicle Crash, Icicle Spear and Rock Slide. A similar giveaway has not yet been confirmed in the North American region.

In addition to Mamoswin, Nintendo is planning to give away Diancie for "Pokemon X" and "Pokemon Y," which were released last year, in the near future. A screenshot featuring Mega Charizard X in the two games from the official Facebook page can be seen with the photo attached near the top side of this article. The same pocket monsters may also be transferred with the upcoming "Pokemon Alpha Sapphire" and "Pokemon Omega Ruby." The two remakes currently have a release window set for Nov. of this year in North America and other territories.
