As was hinted in the last announcement regarding Pokemon HeartGold and SoulSilver, the recently revamped Pokemon.com has announced that there will be a download event at GameStop where you can obtain a special shiny, Pikachu-yellow version of Pichu.
The download event will run at GameStop locations from January 30th through February 14th.
This special Pichu can be downloaded to Pokemon Diamond, Pearl, and Platinum.
The announcement at Pokemon.com of course refers to more to come from this Pichu once you transfer it to Pokemon HeartGold or SoulSilver.
Shiny Pichu holds even more secrets if you transfer the Pokémon to either Pokémon HeartGold or SoulSilver Version, coming March 14th. Once you’ve traded Shiny Pichu, take it to Ilex forest to meet Spiky-Eared Pichu, the one featured in the recent movie, Pokémon: Arceus and the Jewel of Life!
I might be able to grab Pichu at the same time I am at GameStop to pick up my Star Trek Online pre-order. But I’ll certainly find some time to get it.
