The Legendary Birds with their Hidden Abilities are coming soon Pokemon Company

Pokémon continues to celebrate its 20th anniversary with a ton of event distributions, allowing trainers to obtain legendary and rare Pokémon that are otherwise almost impossible to get. Each month the Mythical Pokémon distribution hands out a new ‘Mon (we’re currently getting a Jirachi ), and now the Pokémon Company has announced the distribution of Moltres, Zapdos and Articuno.

What makes the Legendary Bird Trio from Kanto special is their Hidden Abilities, which are not found in the games.

If you want to get your hands on the special Moltres, Zapdos and Articuno, you’ll need to sign up for the Pokémon Trainer Club newsletter. If you're already a Pokémon Trainer Club member, you can make sure you're eligible to receive the newsletter on your Pokémon Trainer Club settings page.

The Pokémon Company urges those to sign up for the Pokémon Trainer Club newsletter by April 22 to be eligible to receive codes to get Articuno, Zapdos, and Moltres in May. Articuno, Zapdos and Moltres will be distributed to Pokémon ORAS and X and Y games in North America after most of Europe started receiving them in March.

The Hidden Abilities of the Legendary Birds will be distributed at level 70, according to Serebii , and will have the following attacks: Articuno comes with Snow Cloak and the attacks Freeze-dry, Ice Beam, Hail and Reflect. Zapdos has Static with the attacks Discharge, Thunder Shock, Rain Dance and Agility. Moltres has the Flame Body ability and Sky Attack, Heat Wave, Sunny Day and Safeguard as its attacks.
