Do you live in Europe and want to get your hands on a shiny Raikou, Suicune, or Entei? Well, you’ll soon be able to! Nintendo has announced that European players can grab the legendary beasts through a Wi-Fi event that will begin on February 7th, 2011. You can access this event through any Generation IV Pokémon game (D/P/Pt or HG/SS). When transferred over to Pokémon Black or White Version, the beasts will unlock the chance to catch the legendary Pokémon, Zoroark. In addition, each Pokémon has a move that it wouldn’t normally have. Raikou will have Weather Ball, Entei will have Flare Blitz, and Suicune will have Sheer Cold. All three will know Extremespeed as well.
Nintendo also announced that Celebi will be available for download in Europe sometime soon as well, but further details were withheld. There is currently no end date announced for the Legendary Beasts, but make sure to mark your calendar. It is currently unknown if you can download all 3, or if you only get one. However, only one is required to catch Zoroark anyway.
As a reminder, if you live in the US, it’s not too late to get your hands on the Legendary Beasts (although the Raikou event has already ended). You can visit your nearest Gamestop on the following dates to download each of the Legendary Beasts:
-January 17th to January 23rd: Entei
-January 31st to February 6th: Suicune
-February 27th to March 7th: Celebi
