One week left until a new generation starts!

February 25, 2011

There’s lass than a week left until the brand new games are going to be released in Europe and only a few days later in America.

Nintendo and Game Freak has done a lot to prepare us fans for the new games. As I’ve already blogged about, the Legendary Dogs, Raikou, Entei and Suicune have all been available for download. Suicune is still up for downloading until sunday (27.02.11) so get it while it lasts!

When you’ve got all three of these Legendaries by the end of February, you can eventually transfer them onto either Pokémon Black or White Versions.
By doing this you’re able to get the special Zoroark with the wicked ability Illusion, which makes an illusion of the Pokémon that is last in the Pokémon team.

At the same time Celebi is available in game stores around Europe and USA!

The only Pokémon that are missing from the Pokédex to legally complete the Pokedex (on Diamond, Pearl, Platinum, HeartGold and/or SoulSilver) is Deoxys and Arceus.

Deoxys were actually available to transfer from Pokémon Ranger: Guardian Signs on a handful of conditions: Firstly, downloading a mission from the Nintendo WFC, then, secondly, do the mission – with another friend. As if it weren’t difficult enough to get a Wi-Fi connection suitable for the DS, you had to convince a friend to spend a lot of money on a game he or she probably wouldn’t have any self interest in.

And then it was Arceus. All was set ready for Arceus in Diamond, Pearl and Platinum. There were different Plates to be found that were designed for Arceus’s Multitype ability. All Nintendo needed to do was to give away the Azure Flute item over WFC, but alas. There weren’t any…

Please get me right. I’ve been more than happy ever since I got Celebi for the very first time in my ten years of playing the Pokémon games. The thing is: I want to fully and LEGALLY complete the Pokédex on my games.

On the Diamond version I’m less than 20 Pokémon away from reaching that goal and that includes both Deoxys and Arceus. I’m pretty sure I’m not alone about this goal either. So close!

Despite my hopes of getting these tiny bits of data really hang thread as thin as a spider’s, remember that a spider’s thread is more robust than steel! And hopefully there will be events for old ‘mons in Pokémon Black and White too!

 

My prayers have been heard!

This is just historical!!

Alongside the Legendary Beast Trio of Johto, Nintendo is clearly in a good mood before releasing the new games that opens the door for a new generation! (Has the sales number hit the sky in Japan? Good reviews?)

Nonetheless, while the Wi-Fi Event is all about the Beasts, Nintendo has an event going on in stores around Europe. And that event is nothing less than historical!

For the first time in Europe ever, Celebi is given away!!! CELEBI!

 

Here is a list of countries where Celebi is available:

Celebi is deemed by many as the rarest Pokémon ever: It has never been released outside of Japan and the United States legally – until now! Japan hashad a few Events since back in Generation II where Celebi was introduced and U.S. had a single event with Generation III due to the 10th anniversary celebration of the Pokémon games.

This Celebi is not only special because of its rarity. It also unlocksa special story in HeartGold and SoulSilver versions including Giovanni – the leader of Team Rocket back in the Red, Blue and Yellow versions. That’s all I’m saying (and mostly all I know).

And not only that: when transferred to the upcoming games, Celebi makes it possible to get Zorua! A Pokémon I blogged about last year which, along with its evolution (Zoroark), has a very cool ability called Illusion, which makes it transform into one of the opponents Pokémon.

Seriously; it’s like someone working for Nintendo has been reading my blog and my woes! (Mr. Miyamoto-san, is that you?) Suddenly my prayers about the Pokémon games. And when Europe gets the new games even before America, which has never happened before…

Now go get the Celebi while the offer lasts!

Happy new year! (Too late for that one, no?)

February 1, 2011

It has been waaay too long since last post!

It’s not that I’ve been in coma from the exams I’ve had – my computer has been, though…!

A LOT has happened since my long month of absence!

The first I want to say is that I think I’ve been heard through the blog, because all of a sudden Nintendo seems to be more kind to us Europeans than ever before!

I’ll base this statement on the fact that Europe has got a release date for Pokémon Black & White Versions!!! And that is before the games are released in the US!!

The release date will be on March 4th!! And as we’re getting close to the release, a lot of English Pokénames are being revealed! Some better than others, off course. Will blog about this later!

Nintendo is going to celebrating the new generation games by having the first event directly for Pookémon Black and White!

On the release day, there is going to be a WiFi-event where Black and White players are able to download Liberty Ticket, which gives access to the special Victini, a legendary Pokémon similiar to Mew & Legendary Co.!

And for you who, like me, are still playing the DS-games, some WiFi-events are just around the corner. The Legendary canines, Raikou, entei and Suicune, are to be able for download from February. One for each of the  three weeks starting February 7th with Raikou, then February 14th with Entei and ending with Suicune at february 21st. These are, in addition to be Legendary, in fact shiny!!

The deal with them is to transfer them to Black and/or White versions when that time comes, so a special Zoroark is available in the new games!

The best thing with these events? They are available in all the DS Versions: Diamond, Pearl, Platinum, HeartGold and SoulSilver!!

As if that wasn’t enough, Nintendo has a special gift in March for us Europeans which I’m going to blog about a little later on.
