Pokémon fans living in Europe now have a second chance to get the Legendary Pokémon, Hoopa, through a new serial code event.

The event, which began today, will give Pokémon collectors another chance at getting the Psychic and Ghost Mythical Pokémon. The Hoopa that’s getting distributed for the current event will be identical to the one given away from last year.


Hoopa comes holding a Focus Sash and has the Magician ability. The Magician ability was first introduced in the sixth generation and allows Pokémon to steal an item being held by another Pokémon when attacked.

In order to get your free Legendary Pokémon, you must own a copy of Pokémon X/Y or Pokémon Omega Ruby/Alpha Sapphire. You can then use this Serial Code: HOOPA2016.

The offer will be available for all European Pokémon players until April 30th. At the moment, the same offer hasn’t confirmed for any other regions, but we’ll be sure to let you know if there’s any news about it happening!
