Pokemon.com has announced a new download event to be held at Toys R Us from April 27th through May 31st.
The event coincides with the airing of an episode of the Pokemon animated series where Ash is given a special Pokemon egg to care for until it hatches.
You too can download the same egg at Toys R Us and hatch it in your copy of Pokemon Black or White.
From the site:
Get a Secret Egg, pick up special Pokémon TCG packs, and discover new Pokémon at a special Toys“R”Us event beginning April 27th!
Coming up in the Pokémon: Black & White animated TV series, Ash is given a great responsibility—he must care for a delicate Pokémon Egg until it hatches. Watch episodes every Saturday through May 21st on Cartoon Network to find out which Pokémon will hatch!
You can follow in Ash’s footsteps with your own Pokémon Egg! Visit participating Toys”R”Us stores from April 27th to May 31st to receive a Secret Egg distribution for your Pokémon Black Version or Pokémon White Version game. Carry the Secret Egg with you in your game until it hatches to find out which one of three secret Pokémon you’ll get!
While at Toys”R”Us, look for a special Pokémon Trading Card Game offer: you can purchase Pokémon TCG: Black & White booster two-packs that include a secret promo card featuring one of the three Pokémon that may hatch from your Secret Egg!
Head to Toys”R”Us starting April 27th with your Nintendo DS™ system and a copy of your game for the Secret Egg distribution, and check out all the other amazing Pokémon products, including special packs of Pokémon TCG cards!
This download is only for Pokemon Black and White. I suspect that the Pokemon that comes from the egg won’t be available through any other means, but I suppose we’ll only know once it hatches.
[Addendum: The “How To” details are now posted over at the Pokemon Black and White site.]
