Pokemon Heart Gold/Soul Silver website! Yes, European Pokemon players can now get their hands on the Pikachu-colored Pichu that's already distributed in Japan and the US!
Except.....Japanese could only get it by buying Arceus movie tickets, and US players could only get it in Toys 'R Us, and both may involve driving miles to get to the destination.
European players can download it freely through Wi-fi Mystery Gift on Pokemon Diamond, Pearl or Platinum, the most convenient method ever. I have only one this to say to this.
Can't see the Pichu properly? Don't worry, here's a clearer shot.
As stated, the event will run for 20 days from March 5 to March 25, and after the event has ended, Pokemon Heart Gold/Soul Silver will conveniently be on store shelves the following day(March 26), and the Pichu can then be traded over to those games to activate a 2nd event. I'm sure most Pokemon fans should know about the Spiky-Eared Pichu you can get at Ilex Forest using this Pichu.
Pikachu-colored Pichu will be holding an Everstone and have Charge, Volt Tackle, Endeavor and Endure as its moveset....while the Spiky-Eared Pichu has Volt Tackle, Swagger, Pain Split(weird) and Helping Hand. Spiky-Ear cannot be traded and can't evolve. Old news is old :P
I'm still reeling at how lucky you people are who own the PAL version of the game....I might just plonk down on a used copy of Pokemon Platinum (UK) just for this thing, because the last thing I'll ever do is hack this precious Pichu.
