Free shiny versions of the three Pokemon (also with special moves) will be available in the new year at GameStop. Raikou from Jan 3-9, Entei from Jan 17-23, and Suicune from Jan 31-Feb 6. In addition, Toys R Us will be distributing Ash's Pikachu from Jan 30-Feb 13. Then, GameStop will again be offering another download (non-shiny Celebi) from Feb 21-March 6.

Celebi can also be had at the Pokemon Mall Tour, and the Legendary Beasts are currently being redistributed over NWFC.

Via Nintendo WiFi connection (yay for not having to go to a store), the first DLC for Pokemon Black & White will be made available in the form of the new psychic & fire type Pokemon, Victini. You will not be able to download Victini directly. It will be an item called a "Liberty Pass" that you'll be able to download via Nintendo WiFi connection, and this item will eventually trigger the unlocking of Victini in the game. The Liberty Pass will be available for download from March 6th-April 10th.

Ash's Pikachu: http://www.toysrus.c...egoryId=4311963

Celebi: http://www.pokemongo.../#/news/celebi/

Victini: http://www.pokemonbl...ial-encounters/

Also, something to note for those who plan on transfering:

There are two methods to migrate Pokemon from Diamond, Peal, Platinum, Heart Gold, and Soul Silver to Black and White: The PokeTransfer (http://serebii.net/b...keshifter.shtml) and the Transfer Machine (http://serebii.net/b...ermachine.shtml). The PokeTransfer is use to migrate all of your regular Pokemon to Black and White and is accessible only after completing the game. The Transfer Machine is used for migrating the Event Pokemon Raikou, Entei, Suicune, and Celebi and is available only after telling a special phrase to a character in Castelia City.

If you transfer the Event Rikou, Entei, Suicune, or Celebi through the PokeTransfer they will NOT unlock the Zorua and Zoroark Events.

I know what you mean, I work there and still would be too embarrassed to do this.

I am 26 & will definitely be taking my DS ot GS & TRU for these. Wonder how far along in the game you have to be. I never got around to finishing Gold or Silver.

According to the site, you just need to have gotten the pokedex.

Getting pussy is like, +15 cool points, man. While downloading pokemon at Gamestop is -10. You still come out ahead!

That's a good idea. Definitely going to try this once it's available. Also Thanks OP for the heads up.

That's the spirit! Enough of this "embarrassed to enjoy a video game" nonsense.

Also, you'll need one of the three Shiny legendaries in order to access/fight a legendary in Black and White. I think that's probably the most important part of the promo that somehow hasn't been mentioned yet...

I'm 23 and I'm going to try to make it and get these. I've never gone to get an event Pokemon before, but kicked myself when I missed a Mew event earlier this year.

I'll do it with both my Diamond and SoulSilver game. I just started the SS one, so I don't have much going on in that one yet.
