The first is a special Shiny Gengar that comes with Gengarite, the item needed to Mega Evolve it into Mega Gengar. This is to coincide with the upcoming trading card game set, Phantom Forces. It shall be available from October 15th to November 5th.

The second is brand new legendary Diancie. This Rock/Fairy type will be available from November 6th to November 28th. Both of these Pokémon can only be transferred to Pokémon X and Pokémon Y but you can then trade them over to the upcoming remakes Pokémon Omega Ruby and Pokémon Alpha Sapphire. Trading Diancie over will reward you with the Diancite item, so you can Mega Evolve it.

US owners can obtain the Shiny Gengar from October 13th to October 26th and the Diancie from October 27th to November 16th at GameStop stores.

The events will also be available in France, Germany, Spain and Italy but the dates are currently unknown.
