Unlike past such events, which have generally been Saturday and Sunday only, this one runs a whole week, from Sunday through Saturday. I wonder if this extended time is related to the fact that some stores did not get their Pokemon distribution setup for the last event? Or maybe they just decided they would be better off if the event ran along the same time frame as all their other advertised specials.
Anyway, my daughter is excited about this, despite the fact we really haven’t done much Pokemon since Christmas. It seems that Shaymin is not on her Pokemon poster, which makes it special.
