Special Serperior coming to Pokémon remakes via code

It seems Nintendo and Game Freak are continuing their trend of releasing rare and unique Pokémon to the general public via downloads. 2015 has only just started and already there’s a new one on the way.

Starting from January 9th, owners of the Gen 3 remakes Omega Ruby and Alpha Sapphire can get their hands on a Serperior, the final evolution of Black and White‘s Grass type starter, Snivy. What makes this Serperior special is that it will come with the Ability Contrary, which reverses any debuff moves inflicted upon it. For example, if your opponent used a move that would lower Serperior’s Defense, it would instead increase it. It’s a very rare Ability to have, with only a few Pokémon capable of having it.

So, how do you obtain it? Simple. Just wait til 9th January and you can use the code POKEMON497 to download it. The download will available up until November 30th so there’s no need to rush.
