Level 50 Shiny Mamoswine Pokémon character will be distributed at the 2014 Pokémon European National Championships

Attendees at this year’s Pokémon Video Game National Championships will be able to receive a special distribution of the Ice-Type Pokémon character Mamoswine. This Mamoswine was part of the successful team of Pokémon used by the Masters Division World Championwinner last year. Arash Ommati was the first Pokémon Video Game World Champion from Europe in the history of the Pokémon Championships. Mamoswine is also featured in the Kalos Mountain Pokédex and is legal in tournaments for the 2014 season.

The Level 50 Shiny Pokémon has the following moves: Icicle Spear, Earthquake, Icicle Crash and Rock Slide and the ability, Thick Fat.

The free-to-enter UK tournament will take place this year in Manchester (May 24–25) and will determine who will go on to win a travel expenses paid trip to the 2014 Pokémon World Championships in Washington, DC in August. The UK Video Game National Championship is open to all Europeans, while the Pokémon TCG tournaments are open to citizens of the host countries only.

To compete in the video game tournament players need to bring their Nintendo 3DS, 3DS XL or 2DS system, and their copy of Pokémon X or Pokémon Y, along with their Player ID. To get a Player ID, please visit Pokemon.co.uk or register at the event. To receive the Shiny Mamoswine players do not need to take part in the tournament but will need to bring along the same equipment.

Gaming since the Atari 2600, I enjoy the weirdness in games counting Densha De Go and RC De Go as my favourite titles of all time. I prefer gaming of old where buying games from a shop was a thing, Being social in person was a thing. Join me as I attempt to adapt to this new digital age!
