It’s June, and summer has seeped its way in, and what better way to celebrate that with another free Mythical Pokémon.

This month’s freebie is Manaphy. You’ll be getting a level 100 version of the Water-type (See, just in time for summer) Pokémon that comes equipped with the Hydration ability and Tail Glow, Bubble, and Water Sport moves.


As with the previous month’s giveaways, you can get Manaphy for use in Pokémon X/Y or Omega Ruby/Alpha Sapphire. It is very simple to get your new pokémon, just simply open the game of your choice, select the Receive Gift option from the main menu, and choose to receive it through an internet connection. The game then walks you through the process from there, you’ll follow a series of prompts, and then pick up the Manaphy at any Pokémon Center in-game. However, if you need more step-by-step instructions, they are available here on the Pokémon website.

This freebie comes as the latest, in a series,  give-a-way to mark the 20-year anniversary of the Pokémon franchise. Manaphy is available now until June 24th, with another Pokémon, Shaymin, becoming free on July 1st. These give-a-ways will continue each month for the remainder of the year.

I have worked hard to become the COO here at GAW and I love it. I write and stream here and I couldn't be happier. I once had a show that I produced, wrote, and co-hosted called the Wide World of Games. I also co-host a podcast called Party Up! I'm an Action-Adventurer, platformer, RPGer, and FPS kind of gamer. Quick to play any game that has magic, swordplay, and/or stealthy elements. If you can customize a character I'm in it for the long haul. Or just give me your 2D platform and I'm a happy camper. What else do you expect from a gamer with a beard and a bow tie tattoo? Seriously.
