For the first time outside Japan, a special Pikachu-colored version of the adorable Pokémon Pichu will be available for distribution to Pokémon fans at more than 4,300 GameStop stores throughout the U.S. and Puerto Rico.


Starting January 30, 2010 to February 14, 2010, Pokémon and Nintendo are offering you the chance to get this Level 30 character that can’t be acquired through normal gameplay. Just bring your Pokémon Diamond Version, Pokémon Pearl Version or Pokémon Platinum Version Game Cards and your Nintendo DS or Nintendo DSi system to a GameStop store and you’ll be able to wirelessly add this unique Pokémon to your Pokédex.


You’re Invited!

Who: All Pokémon fans
What: Pikachu-colored Pichu distribution for your Pokémon Diamond Version, Pokémon Pearl Version or Pokémon Platinum Version
When: Saturday, January 30, through Sunday, February 14, 2010
Where: U.S. GameStop stores (including Puerto Rico)


This unique Pikachu-colored Pichu comes with attacks such as Charge and Endure, special moves Volt Tackle and Endeavor, the Held Item Everstone and in a Poké Ball known as the Cherish Ball – a special Poké Ball exclusive to Pokémon distributed at events.


Also, this Pikachu-colored Pichu holds a secret that will be revealed in the upcoming Pokémon HeartGold Version and Pokémon SoulSilver Version games! When you trade Pikachu-colored Pichu into one of those games, you’ll be able to meet a new friend – Spiky-eared Pichu, who is seen in the latest Pokémon movie (Pokémon: Arceus and the Jewel of Life) and can’t be encountered without transferring Pikachu-colored Pichu into Pokémon HeartGold Version or Pokémon SoulSilver Version!


This Pikachu-colored Pichu distribution comes just before the release of Pokémon HeartGold Version and Pokémon SoulSilver Version on March 14, 2010.
