You know that old expression, when it rains, it pours? Well don't look up in the first three months of 2011 because mate, it is raining Pokemon!
The newest generation of the series -- Pokemon Black & Pokemon White -- will release in the English Regions in March, and that is certainly good news for Trainers, but don't store away your copies of Pokemon Diamond, Pearl, Platinum, HeartGold and SoulSilver just yet mate!
Starting today, 3 January and running through 9 January you can bring your copy to any GameStop along with your DS/DSi and download your very own Shiny Raikou! That is a Legendary mate -- a Shiny Legendary!
As if that was not enough, if you return from January 17-23 you can score a Shiny Entei, and between 31 January and 6 February a Shiny Suicune -- which last time I checked makes for a matched set of that Legendary Trio!
Now stacked on top of the pending release of a new generation pair, that is big news, but remember, I said it is raining Pokemon?
According to famed Pokemon site Serbei from 27 February to 7 March GameStop locations will be distributing the uber rare movie-related Legendary Pokemon that every Trainer loves -- Celebi!
As with the above Pokemon, Celebi will be available for link-transfer to ALL of the 4th Gen games, and the post goes on to say:"Celebi will be at level 50 with the OT "GAMESTP" and the ID No. "22710". The Time Travel Pokémon will hold a Jaboca Berry and will know Leaf Storm, Recover, Nasty Plot and Healing Wish, and as with most recent events, will be in a Cherish Ball and will hold a Classic Ribbon. Most importantly, this will be a fateful encounter Celebi, which will activate a special time-travel event in Pokémon HeartGold and SoulSilver Versions, previously impossible by legitimate means without trading for a Japanese movie Celebi.
"This Celebi, if transferred via the Transfer Machine to Pokémon Black and White, will allow players to get a Zorua in Castelia City. "
It should be pointed out that any of the trio of Shiny Legendary Pokemon being distributed through next month at GameStop, when transferred into Black or White will be the ONLY way for Trainers to capture the new Dark-Type Pokemon Zoroark! You are going to want those Pokemon!
Is that all the Pokemon goodness in store for Trainers in the first part of 2011? Nuh Uh! No Way! There is more!
From 30 January to February 5 participating Toys 'R Us Stores will be distributing Ash Ketchum's famous companion Pikachu - but not just any Pikachu! This one starts out at Level 50 and comes with a special set of abilities, making it a not-to-be-missed addition to your Team!
See, I told you it was going to be raining Pokemon!
