Free Shiny Pokémon at GameStop; All the Details Inside

Get the Shiny Legendary Trio for a Chance to Encounter the Mysterious Zoroark in Upcoming Video Games.

BELLEVUE, Wash. - January 3, 2011-The Pokémon Company International and Nintendo are giving fans the opportunity to get a jump start in PokémonTM Black Version and Pokémon White Version video games with a special character distribution at all U.S. and Canadian GameStop stores.  Starting today through February 6, 2011, Pokémon players can add a Legendary Trio of treasured Shiny Pokémon-RaikouTM, EnteiTM, and SuicuneTM-for their English language versions of Pokémon Diamond, Pearl, Platinum, HeartGold, or SoulSilver Version games. Transfer any one of the Legendary Trio into Pokémon Black Version or Pokémon White Version to unlock the opportunity to encounter a brand-new elusive Pokémon!

Receiving any of the Shiny Legendary Trio is a treat for Pokémon Trainers, and even more exciting is the chance to catch the mysterious Illusion Fox Pokémon ZoroarkTM, a Pokémon that cannot be obtained through normal gameplay-for Pokémon Black Version and Pokémon White Version.  Make sure you are one step ahead of Zoroark when the new video games launch for the Nintendo DSTM family of systems on March 6, 2011!

Pokémon fans will also see Zoroark, along with the Tricky Fox Pokémon, ZoruaTM, in a brand new Pokémon feature film, Pokémon-Zoroark: Master of Illusions, premiering on Cartoon Network in February.  The movie begins with the Legendary Trio, Raikou, Entei, and Suicune, wreaking havoc on the unsuspecting residents of Crown City.  Do the new Dark-type Pokémon Zoroark and Zorua have anything to do with this chaos?

    Went to get my shiny Raikou yesterday. Took all of two minutes. I always forget to do these things otherwise I’d have a stable of legendary/rare Pokemon.
