Pokémon X and Pokémon Y are due out on October 12, but that doesn’t mean that Nintendo has forgotten about the earlier games in the series. Specifically Pokémon White and Pokémon Black both one and two.
Starting on August 19, the Legendary Pokémon Dialga, Palkia and Giratina will be available at participating GameStops! And they’re the “Shiny” versions, so they’re even more rare!
From 8/19-9/8 you can get Shiny Dialga, from 9/9-9/29, you can get Shiny Palika, and from 9/30-10/20, you can get Shiny Giratina. And of course, GameStop would like you to know that you can pre-order Pokémon X or Pokémon Y while you’re stopping in with your DS to download your Legendary Pokémon! (Although why you’d want updates for a game that’s about to become obsolete, I don’t get… I suppose for tournaments? I’m not really hip to the whole Pokémon lifestyle when it comes to that sort of thing. Is that what the kids are into today?)
