VICTINI - Release date: September 2016
(Japanese: ビクティニ Bikutini)
V IS FOR VICTINI!
Victini is known as the Victory Pokemon - it even has large pointed ears that are shaped like the letter V! He has a bit of the fennec fox about him, with the addition of big, blue bug eyes.
It is said that a trainer with a Victini will always win the battle. This is probably/most definitely related to the fact that it produces an infinite amount of energy within itself using its signature Victory Star ability. It can then share this energy with others by touch.
Victini is one for the girls - it was designed by Mana Ibe under the instructions that it would be more appealing to women.
Victini is a dual-type Psychic/Fire Mythical Pokemon.
It is not known to evolve into or from any other Pokemon.
Victini is the only known Pokemon that can learn Searing Shot!
○ Victini was originally designed for Generation IV but was held back.
○ Victini is the only legitimate Pokemon with the Pokedex number of #000 (Unova Pokedex number, not national number), which makes it the first non-glitch Pokemon that has such designation in any regional Pokedex.
FILM & ANIME APPEARANCES:
- Pokemon the Movie: Black—Victini and Reshiram and White—Victini and Zekrom

Victini, similar to earlier Pokemon species Mew, Celebi, Jirachi, and Shaymin, can only be obtained via official distribution events.
For the release of Pokemon Black and White in Japan on September 18, 2010, Pokemon released the Liberty Ticket, a special item that allows players to capture Victini. In English speaking countries, the item is known as the Liberty Pass and was distributed from March 6 to April 10, 2011, in the United States, Canada, and Australia. In the story of the games, Victini was brought to Liberty Garden and locked up in a room to keep it safe and make sure it never fell into the wrong hands. Team Plasma arrives on the island to free Victini into the world, and the player must stop them and then capture Victini, as it wishes to find a worthy trainer.
Currently, the only ways to get Victini is through trading with someone who owns one or through the use of a cheat device or hacking.
