Pokéfans, you can pick up mythical Pokémon Hoopa from certain Australian retailers starting next week

Nintendo have announced that fans of Pokémon X, Y, Omega Ruby and Alpha Sapphire will be able to add the mythical pokémon Hoopa to their collections simply by stopping by specific retailers. Find out which ones after the jump.

You’ll need to head into your nearest Big W, EB Games and JB Hifi between Monday, January 18 and Friday, January 29 (while stocks last). The good news is, you won’t need to purchase anything! Just ask for your Hoopa and you’ll be given a code you can redeem in the Nintendo e-Shop on your 3DS.

When you get your Hoopa, it will be given to you in its Confined form. If you put Hoopa into your copy of Pokémon Alpha Sapphire or Omega Ruby, it will be able to transform into its Hoopa Unbound form. You can find out all about Hoopa over at the official site.

Hoopa will only be available between January 18 and January 29 while stocks last so, if you want it, make sure you get in quick.
