Pokemon trainers will soon have a chance to capture an elusive legendary Pokemon - and they won't even have to waste a Poké Ball to capture it.

Starting in March, participating GameStop, GAME, and EB Games locations will begin distribution of Meloetta: a rare Normal- and Psychic-type Pokemon.

In order to add Meloetta to your roster, you'll need to visit a participating store with your DS or 3DS and a copy of Pokemon Black/White or Pokemon Black/White 2.

Once there, load up your game and select "Mystery Gift". So long as you don't have more than 11 Wonder Cards in your possession, you'll receive a level 50 Meloetta.

Gotta catch 'em all

Meloetta is quite the attractive Pokemon to have in your roster.

In addition to having access to both Normal and Pyschic attacks like Teeter Dance and Psychic, Meloetta can transform into a Pirouette Forme which turns it into the only hybrid Normal- and Fighting-type Pokemon in the game.

We already knew that Meloetta would be available in the United States between March 4 to March 24 at participating GameStop locations and - after some sleuthing - we've learned that Meloetta will be available at participating GAME stores in the UK between March 22 and April 19.

Canadian Pokemon trainers eager to meet Meloetta will need to visit participating EB Games stores between March 9 and April 19.
