Want three free legendary pokemon? Nintendo and GameStop have partnered to bring PokeFans three legendary Pokemon. Gamers who own Diamond, Pearl, Platinum, HeartGold or SoulSilver will have the opportunity to receive the legendary pokemon: Raikou, Entei, and Suicune, from events held at GameStops.
Raikou, Entei, and Suicune are the legendary pokemon featured in Silver and Gold and are obtainable, albeit rare. Why would you want to go all the way to your local GameStop to get these pokemon? Well for starters they will be shiny. Shiny pokemon are extremely rare and show up as different colors than normal pokemon. But the real reason you want these pokemon is because when you transfer them to your Black and White games you will be able to unlock the ability to capture a new pokemon called Zoroark. Zoroark can only be caught this way.
If catching them all means anything to you then make sure you stop by a GameStop on these days: Raikou- January 3rd – January 9th
Entei- January 17th – January 23rd
Suicune- January 31st – February 6th
Just in case. For Europeans, you'll be getting these over wifi.
Raikou: February 7th 2011 to February 13th 2011
Entei: February 14th 2011 to February 20th 2011
Suicune: February 21st 2011 to February 27th 2011
There's one in my small town/city, so it's not much of a hassle for me to obtain any of these. XD
Btw, got an Entei with Hidden Power Ice and fairly high attack and near max defensive (HP/Def/Sp. Def) IVs. I'm so excited to use him in an online battle when Black & White comes, since he can learn a ground-type TM move called Level Ground (Smooth Over).
Wonder what Hidden Power I should get for my Suicine next? I might just have to settle for Fire.
I plan on getting Suicune tomorrow. They also have the Ash's Pikachu giveaway at Toys R Us from now until the 5th of Feb. So I'll have to get over to Toys R Us to get Pikachu too. Then a 22 day wait until Gamestop has a Celebi giveaway. Gotta get that Celebi no matter what.
