Entei Download This Week at GameStop

I almost forgot that this week is the second of the three Shiny Pokemon download events at GameStop.

This week, through this coming Sunday the 23rd, the Pokemon to be downloaded is Entei.

Shiny Entei

You need these Pokemon for Pokemon Black and White.  When you transfer them to Pokemon Black or White you will unlock the ability to catch the new Pokemon Zoroark.  Zoroark will otherwise not be obtainable in the game.

It sounds like you will need all three for the unlock, so head to GameStop before this coming Monday for the download.

The final download event will follow in two week.

  • Suicune – January 31st through February 6th

That fill then be followed in some areas by the Pokemon tour.

And then, finally, Pokemon Black and White will ship on March 6th.

Six Raikou Later…

The first GameStop shiny Pokemon download event ended last weekend.  It was for Raikou and it ran from January 3rd through January 9th.

Raikou Complete

My daughter and I, out on a Sunday shopping trip on the 9th (milk, cat food, lunch) parked in a spot directly in front of one of our nearby GameStop store fronts.  That put is well within range of their WiFi, so we sat in the car, listened to music, and downloaded Pokemon.

This also kept us from going into the store and actually buying something, which is always a danger.  Sorry GameStop.  So we kept our distance to download.

And download we did.

Since the event was available for any of the DS based Pokemon games, we were able to download the shiny Raikou into:

  • Pokemon Diamond (x2)
  • Pokemon Pearl
  • Pokemon Platinum
  • Pokemon HeartGold
  • Pokemon SoulSilver

So now we have a veritable pack of shiny Raikou on our hands now.

There are two more GameStop download events coming.

  • Entei – January 17th through January 23rd
  • Suicune – January 31st through February 6th

Plus there is a road show mall event coming up that I will post about later.

All of which is driving towards the launch of Pokemon Black and White in March.

Shiny Pokemon Events Coming to GameStop in January

This looks to be the first event in the build up to the release of Pokemon Black and White.

Pokemon.com has announced that GameStop will be hosting three Pokemon download events in January and early February.

The events will be:

  • Raikou – January 3rd through January 9th
  • Entei – January 17th through January 23rd
  • Suicune – January 31st through February 6th

These Pokemon will be special.  Not only will they be special “shiny” versions of the three legendary Pokemon, but when you transfer them to Pokemon Black or White it will unlock the ability to catch the new Pokemon Zoroark.  Zoroark will otherwise not be obtainable in the game.

This is an in-store only event.  You must got to a US GameStop store during the dates listed to be able to download these Pokemon.

However, since it is an in-store event, you will be able to download these Pokemon to Diamond, Pearl, Platinum, HeartGold and SoulSilver.

Details about the event and how to participate are available at Pokemon.com.
