Dream World Arceus and Electro Ball Mewtwo Event in February

Arceus has been released via Dream World in the US (and in other English games) today. The event lasts until May 1st 2012, so there is plenty of time to befriend it... but why not go ahead and get it on your game? To unlock Arceus go to the Promotional Page on the Pokémon Global Link. Choose the event "Receive the Mythical Pokémon Arceus." It will take you to a password page where you enter in the code ARCEUSVOTE. Once entered, the site will lead you through how to send Arceus from the Global Link to your game.

This is not the first Arceus event, however, there was one for Platinum as well which was held at Toys 'R Us (in the US). The difference between these two Arceus are thier moves, OT, ID number, and Pokéball. The TRU Arceus will have the special moves Spacial Rend, Roar of Time, Shadow Force, and the level up move Judgement. The Dream World Arceus, however, does not have any special moves. It has the normal level up moves of Recover, Hyper Beam, Perish Song, and Judgement. Also, the Dream World Arceus will have the OT and ID of the person who caught it which means it can be Nicknamed and it can potentially be traded on the GTS. Both the TRU and DW Arceus are caught at Lv 100.

Also, later this month there will a Mewtwo download via Wifi connection starting on Februrary 20th, 2012. The Mewtwo will be a lv 70, will be in a Cherish Ball, and know a move it can't normally learn (Electro Ball). Oddly, the Mewtwo is holding a King's Rock... who knows why. In addition to Electro Ball, the Mewtwo will also know Shadow Ball, Aura Sphere, and Psystrike which are a combonation of normal level up and TM moves. The event currently has no end date.

You know, it's intereseting that power pokémon like Arceus and Mewtwo are being released on the same month... Legendary throwdown anyone?
