Pokémon and Nintendo Offer Limited Distribution To Celebrate Tenth Anniversary of Pokémon Gold Version and Pokémon Silver Version

BELLEVUE, Wash.—October 12, 2010—It has been 10 years since Pokémon fans first visited the Johto region in the Pokémon Gold Version and Pokémon Silver Version video games. To commemorate this historic occasion, Pokémon Trainers can get the Rare Psychic-type Pokémon Mew for the original titles’ remakes, Pokémon HeartGold Version or Pokémon SoulSilver Version, for the Nintendo DS family of systems via a Nintendo Wi-Fi Connection distribution event October 15 through October 30, 2010.

At first, it was believed that there were only 150 Pokémon. As #151 in the National Pokédex, Mew was the original secret Pokémon, revealed for the Pokémon Red Version and Pokémon Blue Version video games. Over the past 12 years, Mew has very rarely been attainable, making this an extraordinary opportunity for Trainers across the nation.

The Mew character you will receive is a Level 5 and comes with one basic Normal-type attack, Pound, giving Pokémon Trainers the ability to raise and train Mew as they see fit. Making this distribution especially exclusive, Mew comes inside a Cherish Ball and has a Premier Ribbon, both indicating that you got it via a special event.

During the limited distribution period, players will need to receive Mew using the Mystery Gift option via the Nintendo Wi-Fi Connection service and their existing wireless broadband Internet access, and will need to acquire the Pokédex in the game. Players must also have fewer than three Wonder Cards in their game.

picA special Pokémon will be distributed to gamers with Nintendo DS systems at the Pokémon World Championships that is taking place this week in Waikoloa, Hawaii. The Crobat is level 30 and holds a Life Orb. Below is the press release.

Attention, all gamers who plan to attend the Pokémon World Championships this weekend! Don’t forget to bring your copy of the Pokémon Diamond, Pokémon Pearl, Pokémon Platinum Version, Pokémon HeartGold Version or Pokémon SoulSilver Version game to the event. You'll have the chance to receive a competition-ready Crobat for your game. This distribution will be available for only a limited time on Sunday, so be sure to bring your Nintendo DS and one of the Pokémon games listed here so you can get this awesome Crobat!

May 02 2010 Pokémon Sunday 289

Episode PictureThe latest episode of Pokémon Sunday, Pikachu's Entering the Rocket Gang!? / Professor Akido's Experiment 'Can People Take on Other Forms like Zoroark does!?' / Director Shoko-tan's Television Viewer Battle Debut! (ピカチュウ、ロケット団に入る!? / アーキド博士の実験「人間もゾロアークのように化けることができるのか?」 / しょこたん部長が視聴者バトルに登場!), aired today in Japan.

This week featured a new rerun theme, 'Pikachu and Nyarth's Nice Little Talks', and Pikachu's Entering the Rocket Gang!? was this weeks repeat episode. In this episode, Pikachu and Nyarth ended up separated from their respective groups after an explosion, and when Nyarth discovers Pikachu has lost his memory, he takes the opportunity to make him a Rocket Gang member.

Professor Akido makes his return this episode, again researching similarities between humans and Pokémon. This time, he wanted to see if the berries making Pokémon resist attacks of specific types have the same effect on humans. He feeds Golgo a Ririba Berry, which grants resistance against steel attacks, and attacks Golgo with makeshift Iron Tail and Metal Claw attacks. After Golgo ends up taking as much damage as he normally would, Akido descovers he accidentally gave him the wrong berry.

Next, Akido attempts to see if humans can take on other forms like the new Pokémon Zoroark has been shown to. Baba is successfully able to take on Deoxys' looks by use of a costume, so Akido has him try to use Deoxys' move Snatch to see if he's a perfect replica. Baba is sent into a basketball match where he has to play against an entire team at once, and doesn't fare particularly well, so Akido deduces humans can't take on Pokémon forms completely.

He still wants to see if they can take on other forms, so he has the group try to take on the form of a park bench. After seemingly doing a decent job at first, they eventually fail to support the weight of somewhat heavier people. After deducing humans can't take on the form of park benches, Akido finally tries to see how well they can take on the form of curling stones, and a relatively successful match is held using humans in place of stones.
