Bring Ash’s Pikachu Home
To celebrate the new T.V. show, Pokemon: Black and White, Toys”R”Us stores in the United States and Puerto Rico are offering gamers Ash’s Pickachu for their DS games. Starting now and going through Feb. 13, Pokemon players who bring their Pokemon Diamond, Pearl, Platinum HeartGold or SoulSilver version to the store can obtain Pikachu through digital distribution.
Like Ash’s Pickachu on the animated T.V. series, the digitally distributed Pokemon knows Thunderbolt, Iron Tail and Volt Tackle—a pretty good skill set.
Before you set off to your local Pokemon gym… er, Toys”R”Us, make sure you’ve acquired the Pokedex within the game and have no more than two Wonder Cards received from other event promotions. If you’re uninterested in obtaining Pikachu, the new T.V. series will debut on Cartoon Network on Feb. 12.
