During three specific weeks during January and early February Pokemon trainers could get their hands on the legendary trio of the Johto region: Suicune, Raikou, and Entei at their local participating Gamestop. Not only were they shiny versions of the trio if you trade them to Pokemon Black or White
you'll get the chance to catch Zoroark, a Pokemon that can't be caught through normal game play.
Now you can get another rare Pokemon at Gamestop. From now (well, technically February 21st) through March 6th you can download Celebi to Pokemon HeartGold
, or Platinum
, but there's a lot more to what you can do with Celebi than the other trio. For starters if you bring Celebi into HeartGold
or Soul Silver
you can take it to the shrine in the Ilex Forest to travel back in time and fight the leader of Team Rocket, Giovanni. If you trade it to Pokemon Black or White
you'll get the opportunity to catch Zorua, a Pokemon not available to catch through normal game play, much like Zoroark.
You can also catch Celebi from the Pokemon Black and White
tour if it's in a city near you. It is in a city near me, but I'm not driving two miles north just to get Celebi, especially when there's a Gamestop just two minutes north of me.
