Level 50 Dragonite Event

We’ve let Pokemon silde at our house lately, my daughter being more interested in Nintendogs these days.  But we still keep our eyes open for special Pokemon events, and our Pokemon alert network let us know that one is coming up this weekend.

According to Pokemon.com, on Saturday November 8th and Sunday November 9th you will be able to go into your local Toys R Us and download a special level 50 Dragonite Pokemon.

This is apparently a big deal because Dragonair does not evolve into Dragonite until level 55 usually.  This will, according to the press release, let you enter this Dragonite, with his special moves, in tournaments limited to level 50 Pokemon.

I thought that said tournaments automatically down-leveled your Pokemon to 50, but I may be mistaken.

Anyway, my daughter and I will be off to download Dragonite this weekend.  If nothing else, that will be one less Pokemon I need to find the seemingly endless quest to fill out the National Pokedex in Pokemon Diamond.
