Pokemon Sword & Shield distribution event:Through GameFreak and Nintendo, Sword & Shield owners can obtain some truly legendary Pokemon – Genesect, Volcanion, and Marshadow. Technically, they are Mythicals since they are event Pokemon, but you understand what we mean.
According to Serebii, Genesect and Volcanion will be available at GameStop between October 16 and 29, while Marshadow will be available at Target between October 30 and November 12.
In addition to being the only Fire/Water-type Pokemon in existence, Volcanion has a whopping 130 base Special Attack stat. What is the need for Groudon and Kyogre when you can have both in one? Marshadow is a cute little guy who is a Fighting/Ghost-Type introduced in Sun & Moon. Even though it is small in stature, it packs a powerful punch, with 125 base Attack and Speed. There is no need to introduce Genesect. Since the release of Black & White, fans have been captivated by the cyborg Pokemon.
Serebii Update: Genesect and Volcanion to be distributed in the US and Canada at GameStop from October 16th through 29th and Marshadow from October 30th to November 12th https://t.co/gDbXkHT3ar pic.twitter.com/SA9Yob5Flg

Trainers in North America have some catching up to do since Europe already has these Pokemon. Those of you who have been wondering why you have seen these ‘mons around more frequently now know why.
In the competitive circuit, this is excellent news, since season 13 of VGC has recently introduced Mythical ‘mons into the game – a massive change in the metagame.
We recently saw a 14-minute gameplay trailer for the upcoming Pokemon Sword & Shield game. It revealed a new evolution of Girafarig, Farigiraf. You should repeat that five times very quickly.
Most importantly, you can now bathe your Pokemon, including Tsareena, the mangosteen queen. The EXP share is here to stay, new breeding mechanics are in place, and TMs can now be crafted using scavenged materials.
