Morimoto's Pokémon code card

A Pokémon Show will be held at Milan Games Week 2015. Milan Games Week 2015 will be held from Oct. 23 to 25, 2015. The show will be run by Pokémon Millennium (the largest Italian portal dedicated to Pokémon universe) in collaboration with Nintendo Italy.

At the event, code cards for Hoopa will be distributed. Players can redeem these codes in Pokémon X, Y, Omega Ruby or Alpha Sapphire.

All the visitors of the Nintendo Kids Area (Pavillon 3, Stand A12) will also receive a code card with codes to obtain two Pokémon in Pokémon Omega Ruby or Pokémon Alpha Sapphire. These Pokémon have been personally selected by Shigeki Morimoto: Aromatisse and Malamar for Pokémon Omega Ruby, or Bouffalant and Sableye for Pokémon Alpha Sapphire. These Pokémon were previously distributed at gamescom 2015 in Germany.

A few episodes of the 18th season of the Pokémon anime which have not yet aired in Italy, coming shortly on the TV channel K2, will be shown at the event. Attendees will also be able to participate in a sneak peek of the upcoming Pokémon Trading Card Game expansion, BREAKthrough, which introduces the new Pokémon BREAK mechanic. Additionally, the Italian version of Pokémon Black and White volume 13 of the Pokémon Adventures manga will launch at the event.

Cosplayers will have the chance to parade on stage and receive exclusive Nintendo gifts. Fans will also be able to receive exclusive Pokémon-themed gadgets.

At the Nintendo Tournaments Area (Pavillon 4, Stand E6), an official Premier Challenge will be held from which players can obtain Championship Points, which can be used to qualify for an invite or a free trip to the 2016 Pokémon Video Game World Championships. Signup is free, and prizes will be awarded to the best players. It will be held on Oct. 23, 24, and 25 from 3 pm at the Nintendo Area (Pavillon 3, Stand A8).
