Pokemon Enigma Stone Download Event

Pokemon.com has announced a new Nintendo WiFi download event for Pokemon HeartGold and SoulSilver.

From July 31st through August 27th you can download the Enigma Stone for HeartGold and SoulSilver.

By default, the Pokemon Latias only appears in HeartGold while Latios only appears in SoulSilver.  But the Enigma Stone sets off a chain of events in the game that leads to an encounter with the Pokemon that does not generally appear in game.

So if you have HeartGold you will encounter Latios, while SoulSilver players will encounter Latias.

To get the Enigma Stone, you have to have obtained the National Pokedex in HeartGold or SoulSilver, which means you have completed the Johto portion of the game and have defeated Lance and the Elite Four.

This is not an in-store download.  You must connect to the Internet via your Nintendo DS using the WiFi option in order to obtain the Engima Stone.  Instructions on how to configure your DS are in the instruction booklet that came with Pokemon HeartGold and SoulSilver. (page 35)

If you need further help, please see the Nintendo WiFi site.  Do not post questions about Nintendo WiFi in the comments here.

Pokewalker Winner’s Path WiFi Event

The Pokewalker Yellow Forest event ended yesterday, but in what may be a sign of things to come with Pokewalker routes, a new WiFi download was announced today.

Called the Winner’s Path, it features more pokemon that you may need to complete your national pokedex.


This download event runs from May 6, 2010 through to June 26th, 2010.  Nintendo has included a guide to the pokemon and items you can collect on this route and how many steps you need to take to have a chance of finding them.

Pokemon Rarity

Item Rarity

As with the Yellow Forest event, this is NOT an in-store event.  This route can only be obtained via Nintendo WiFi, which requires you to have WiFi access to a real internet connection.  Instructions on how to configure your DS for that sort of connectivity are in the instruction booklet which comes with Pokemon HeartGold and SoulSilver. (Page 35 in the SoulSilver booklet.)

Once you have your WiFi access configured, full details on how to obtain the Winner’s Path route are available on the Nintendo Pokemon HeartGold and SoulSilver web site.

Pokewalker Yellow Forest WiFi Event

Pokemon.com has announced the first post-release WiFi event for Pokemon HeartGold and Soulsilver.

From April 1st through May 5th you can download a Pokewalker route called the Yellow Forest.

OMG Pikachu!

This new Pokewalker route features, as the name implies, Pikachu.  There are even some special variations of Pikachu you can catch when walking this route.

This is NOT an in-store event, this is only available through direct Nintendo WiFi, which means you have to have configured your DS to connect to the internet via WiFi.

Details on how to do that are in the manual that came with your game. (Page 35 in the SoulSilver manual.)

Once you have that setup, step by step download instructions are available at the Pokemon HeartGold and SoulSilver web site.

[Edit: This event is now over.  The next event has been announced.]
