Gearing Up For Victini

The latest Pokémon events to hit the states will feature Victini! Nintendo is obviously getting ready for the release of the latest Pokémon movie, set to be released in theaters on Dec. 3rd. In preparation there have been announcements of a Black and White Wifi event for Victini, a new Victini CGear Skin, as well as a Pokémon Rumble Victini being released.

The Wifi download Victini will be released starting on December 3rd and ending on Dec 31st. This Victini is most likely exactly the same as the one released in Japan. It will know V-Create as well as Zekrom and Reshiram's signature moves (Fusion Flare and Fusion Bolt). As with all events, it will be in a Cherish Ball and have a ribbon which will block it from being traded on the GTS. Be sure to mark your calendars!

The Victini CGear Skin is already avaliable for members of the Pokémon Global Link. Simply go to the promotions page and enter the code VICTINI2011. After entering the code the skin will be unlocked and the site will give you a walk thru on how to access it afterwards. If anyone has any issues with this, feel free to reply and I'll help walk you thru it.

The Pokémon Rumble Victini is already avaliable by entering the code 6699-8898. It has a strength of 440 (meh) and knows V-Create.

So anyway, loads of Victini stuff. In addition to downloads, apparently there will also be a new Pokémon Card Tin featuring Victini hitting shelves on Dec. 5th. The promo Victini within is a reprint from the newest set, Noble Victories. This card is actually very good in that it allows it's owner to re-flip for an attack if they so see fit. So, if you have pokémon like Klinglang which does damage based on flips, and you don't get enough heads, you get to retry one more time! Nice!
