For XY and ORAS. Currently only news for North America right now although I assume Europe will be the same when it comes to Nintendo Network events.

February: Mew (Gamestop)
March: Celebi (Nintendo Network)
April: Jirachi (Nintendo Network)
May: Darkrai (Gamestop)
June: Manaphy (Nintendo Network)
July: Shaymin (Nintendo Network)
August: Arceus (Gamestop)
September: Victini (Nintendo Network)
October: Keldeo (Nintendo Network)
November: Genesect (Gamestop)
December: Meloetta (Nintendo Network)

The European site confirms the distribution as well but has no specific information.

Announce on their twitter on top of that n3DS bundle.

From Serebii:

Mew will be distributed from February 1st through February 24th at Gamespot, unknown elsewhere while Celebi will run from March 1st through March 24th on the Nintendo Network, Jirachi in April on the Nintendo Network, Darkrai in May at Gamestop, Manaphy in June via Nintendo Network, Shaymin in July via Nintendo Network, Arceus in August via Gamestop, Victini in September via Nintendo Network, Keldeo in October via Nintendo Network, Genesect in November at Gamespot in the US, unknown elsewhere and Meloetta in December via Nintendo Network

This is pretty fucking huge news as most these Pokemon have been forever relegated to obscure Japan only event status for the longest time. Now's the time to truly complete your Pokedex.

As someone who doesn't necessarily follow Pokémon news, is there a reason they refer to legendary Pokémon as "mythical"?

Was legendary unofficial classification or was this a recent change?

Japan always got these, it's nice that the Pokemon Company is finally acknowledging other regions.

Here comes the soft-resetting nightmare.

Generally legendaries are found in-game, while mythicals have to be given out through an event like what Mew was for the Gameboy games.

Mythical refers to the pokemon who are only catchable through events. Legendary is for Pokemon who are special, but in game such as Mewtwo. Mythical was always used for event pokemon in Japan, but it's only recently been used for US

Yeah. They recently started to classify the Legendaries you normally can't get ingame without redeeming limited time codes or downloads as being Mythical. Basically a higher tier of rarity. Deoxys used to be considered a Mythical but now anyone can get one during the end of Pokemon ORAS post-game content.

Legends are the ones you can catch in game. Mythicals are the ones you can only get through TPC events.

Well Shaymin, Darkrai, and Arceus had in-game events in their original games, you just needed a special item from wifi to activate the events.

No Deoxys? While Deoxys is catchable in ORAS it is still considered a mythical as far as competitive rules and Pokedex completion goes (mythical is not require for completion). Plus if they had Deoxys they could start in January (move first 3 forward by 1 month, rest remain same).

Am I right in remembering the item for Arceus was never released and for the Gen IV event it was just that an Arceus given to you. This might also be why mythical Pokemon stopped having special in-game events.

Each store gives me a max of four codes when I ask, no purchase required.

It has probably had about 10-15 events. Although most have been in Asian countries.

Holy cow, when was the last time we saw Jirachi? Seems like since the GBA era, although maybe there was another event in there.

November: Genesect (Gamestop)

Ugh... of course the one I actually care about is at Gamestop :/

How much of one of these games would I need to play to open up the ability to acquire these? I'm sort of playing through the series very slowly, but I'm tempted to skip ahead a bit (Probably to ORAS, since that's not a huge leap in the natural progression) to secure them.

you would need to get the national dex which usally doesn't come till the end of the end of the game/post game

with ORAS you could power though, it's not that very hard and could be done in a couple sittings

Mythical Pokemon are lame as hell, but at least people will be able to get them now.

Downloadable catching events would have been 1000x better, but I guess the whole idea of a mythical is 'a shiny and rather useless bauble you get handed for being in the right place at the right time' so I suppose this is in the correct spirit.
