My daughter and I made it to Toys R Us today for the Regigigas event and downloaded what may be the last special event Pokemon for Diamond and Pearl. With Pokemon Platinum due out the Nintendo DS in a week, the torch is about to be passed to a new Pokemon franchise front runner.
Like such events in the past at Toys R Us, this was pretty low key. One of the clerks gave us the standard “five dollar off any Pokemon game for DS” coupon. I am not sure there are any Pokemon games for the DS that we do not already own.
We also got some Pokemon stickers this time around, which was a win in my daughter’s eyes.
The stickers of course included a plug for Pokemon Platinum. The stick sheet sheet includes the following:
Your new level 100 Regigigas is already very powerful, but it hold a secret you can unlock in the newest Pokemon game, Pokemon Platinum Version.
Trade the Regigigas you recieved today to Pokemon Platinum Version [available March 22nd, 2009] and you can find Regirock, Regice, and Registeel in Sinnoh!
This trio of legendary Pokemon cannot be found in Pokemon Platinum Version during normal play.
Note: Obtaining Regigias through normal play in Pokemon Platinum Version will not cause these three legendary Pokemon to appear.
There is still another week to go to pick up Regigigas at Toys R Us. The event runs through Saturday, March 21, 2009. After that, Pokemon Platinum will be on the scene.
