Folks, it's time to let me show you my Pokémons. Well, actually, no it isn't, but you can now add a rare beasty to your own collections with 2 events coming to a store near you. If you live in the US or the UK, anyway.

For the US, it's the wish-granting Steel/Psychic Pokémon Jirachi, which you can grab at Gamestop between the 27th February and the 13th March.

Species: #385 Jirachi
Level: 5
Ball/Ribbon: Cherish Ball/Classic Ribbon
Held Item: Liechi Berry
Moveset: Wish, Confusion, Rest, Draco Meteor
Special: Trade it to the upcoming HGSS to unlock the Night Sky's Edge Pokéwalker course


And if you live in the UK, it's the god of all Pocket Monsters, the mighty Arceus. Yep, he's landed on our shores at last. You can get yourself a deity sealed in a small metal capsule by heading down to GAME when the store closest to you is running the event:

I don't know what set-up this fella has, but if it's the same as the US one then you can expect it to be holding a Rowap Berry, be in a Cherish Ball and awarded a Classic Ribbon, and have Roar of Time, Spacial Rend and Shadow Force in its moveset.
And when you trade it to the upcoming HGSS, you'll gain access to a special area called Sinjoh Ruins. What happens there? If you don't know, I won't spoil it for you :P

^ Yeah, you download it to Diamond, Pearl or Platinum, and then trade it over to HGSS when they come out.

The only event PKMN i've gotten so far is the Pikachu-colored Pichu. I'll probably go get this Jirachi too.
