-The PokÃ©mon Company International and Nintendo are giving fans the opportunity to get a jump start in PokÃ©monâ„¢ Black Version and PokÃ©mon White Version video games with a special character distribution at all U.S. and Canadian GameStop stores. Starting today through February 6, 2011, PokÃ©mon players can add a Legendary Trio of treasured Shiny PokÃ©mon-Raikouâ„¢, Enteiâ„¢, and Suicuneâ„¢-for their English language versions of PokÃ©mon Diamond, Pearl, Platinum, HeartGold, or SoulSilver Version games. Transfer any one of the Legendary Trio into PokÃ©mon Black Version or PokÃ©mon White Version to unlock the opportunity to encounter a brand-new elusive PokÃ©mon!
Receiving any of the Shiny Legendary Trio is a treat for PokÃ©mon Trainers, and even more exciting is the chance to catch the mysterious Illusion Fox PokÃ©mon Zoroarkâ„¢, a PokÃ©mon that cannot be obtained through normal gameplay-for PokÃ©mon Black Version and PokÃ©mon White Version. Make sure you are one step ahead of Zoroark when the new video games launch for the Nintendo DSâ„¢ family of systems on March 6, 2011!
PokÃ©mon fans will also see Zoroark, along with the Tricky Fox PokÃ©mon, Zoruaâ„¢, in a brand new PokÃ©mon feature film, PokÃ©mon-Zoroark: Master of Illusions, premiering on Cartoon Network in February. The movie begins with the Legendary Trio, Raikou, Entei, and Suicune, wreaking havoc on the unsuspecting residents of Crown City. Do the new Dark-type PokÃ©mon Zoroark and Zorua have anything to do with this chaos?
