New Pokémon Wi-Fi Events Coming to Europe

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

Pokémon HeartGold & SoulSilver Mew Distribution

For those of you who don’t check Serebii or Bulbapedia, there will be a special event distribution for American and European copies of Pokémon HeartGold & SoulSilver Versions to celebrate the 10th year anniversary of the original Gold & Silver versions. The event will run from October 15th to October 30th.

The Mew will be level 5 with the move Pound. It is also stored in a Cherish Ball, a Pokéball unobtainable normally in the games. Finally, the Mew will come with the Premier ribbon, meaning you can’t trade it on the Global Trade Station.

But would you really want to trade away a Mew anyway?
