picThe rare Pokémon Zoroark and two more Pokémon can be yours on the 11th and the 18th of June! Live the Pokémon experience with the rarest heroes only at Multirama stores on Saturday, June 11 and Saturday, June 18!

The coveted Pokémon Zoroark, Karrablast and Shelmet can be yours provided you come to one of the distribution sites of these collectible Pokémon.

Zoroark is an extremely rare and coveted Pokémon, which has never been available to the Greek fans of the series in the past. The special move "Snarl" is available only for the Zoroark that will be distributed via the event.

Zoroark is a fox-like Pokémon. It's a Dark-type, binded to the forests and lives in groups whose ties are really strong. They're overprotective regarding those they care for and are willing to do everything to keep them safe, even risking their lives, while they get their revenge on those that harmed their loved ones.

Zoroark has the ability to create illusions in order to fool its enemies and even create oases in order to hide its territory and protect its little ones.

When Karrablast and Shelmet are traded between friends, they evolve into Escavalier - one of the strongest Pokémon, and Accelgor - one of the fastest Pokémon.

Karrablast is a 5th Generation Bug-type Pokémon. When it feels threatened, it spits an acidic liquid to drive attackers away. It targets Shelmet aiming for its evolution.

Shelmet is a 5th Generation Bug-type Pokémon. For some reason, Shelmet evolves when bathed in an electric-like energy along with Karrablast. When attacked, it closes the lid of its shell as a way to defend itself and can spit a poisonous and sticky liquid.

IMPORTANT: What do you need to have with you?

In order to receive Zoroark, Karrablast and Shelmet, you must have a charged Nintendo DS, DS Lite, DSi or Nintendo 3DS console along with one of the Pokémon Black or Pokémon White games for the Nintendo DS.

The distribution takes place ONLY in specific Multirama stores (http://www.multirama.gr) and ONLY on Saturday, June 11th and Saturday, June 18th, from 11:00 to 15:00.

But didn't they get the 3 Legendary Dogs events, for HeartGold/SoulSilver?

Yeah, we got the event Raikou, Entei and Suicune via WiFi, like the rest of Europe. However, what I think the writer of the original article meant (the news article is a mere translation of the original article posted on the nintendo.gr website) is that Greece never got it directly, since getting the event Raikou/Entei/Suicune in the Gen IV games was an indirect way to get Zoroark. That or the writer wasn't pretty well-informed. :P

Well, then that was the case for the whole continent, not just Greece... and the US too, if I remember correctly. What I find weird is that only Greece is getting this event, while pretty much every other countries (except Japan) never got Zoroark directly. It'd have made sense if they hadn't received the legendary dogs via Wifi.

Not that I really care about the event at all, I'm just puzzled by the greek division of Nintendo of Europe's statements :D
