The Diancie transfer details have been further discussed for "Pokemon X" and "Pokemon Y." According to a report from Destructoid on June 14, Nintendo is expected to give away the pocket monster sometime before the releases of "Pokemon Alpha Sapphire" and "Pokemon Omega Ruby" later this Nov. in the North American region. However, the publisher is still silent in regards to how the creature will be distributed.

Nintendo of Japan previously confirmed that Diancie can be acquired via a distribution event for customers who purchased movie tickets toward an animated movie based on the pocket monster. The North American branch may also follow the same route when the feature film is also distributed in the west. An official art piece featuring Diancie from the "Pokemon" Twitter page can be seen near the top side of this article.

Nintendo is also providing extra incentives for those who are going to purchase the upcoming "Pokemon Alpha Sapphire" and "Pokemon Omega Ruby." The two games contain a stone required for Diancie to be able to mega evolve. With the item equipped, the pocket monster can temporary transform into a more powerful version with boosted powers. It will revert back once the battle sequence is completed.

In addition to Diancie, the new installments also includes the mega evolution stones for Sceptile and Swampert. The two are the final forms for two of the three starters in "Pokemon Alpha Sapphire" and "Pokemon Omega Ruby." The other one is Blaziken, which could already mega evolve in last year's installments.

Nov. 21 is the release date for the two new releases of the franchise. Both software products are in production at the Game Freak studio and will be published by Nintendo. "Pokemon Alpha Sapphire" and "Pokemon Omega Ruby" will also be using the same visual style found in "Pokemon X" and "Pokemon Y."
