Europe Gets the Chance to Take Home Victini

Only early birds need apply

We recently reported about how North American gamers can get their hands on Victini in Nintendo's upcoming Pokémon Black and White, but fear not European gamers: you'll get your chance too.

In an almost identical fashion to the North American Victini parade, trainers who pick up the new games between 4th March and 22nd April can connect to Nintendo WiFi Connection and grab a Liberty Pass, which is the only way to catch Victini.

We'll be bringing you a review of Pokémon Black and White on launch day so you know if it's worth putting down your money for the latest catch-'em-all-a-thon.

Battle your way to Victory with one-of-a-kind Pokémon available to early owners of Pokémon Black Version and Pokémon White Version

Buy your game early and be rewarded with the exclusive Mythical Pokémon, Victini

Nintendo and The Pokémon Company International are giving PokémonTM fans another reason to get excited about the upcoming launch of PokémonTM Black Version and Pokémon White Version games for the Nintendo DSTM family of systems. Those who are quick off the mark and purchase either of the new games between 4th March and 22nd April 2011, will be eligible to receive a special Liberty Pass via Nintendo® Wi-Fi Connection (broadband Internet access required) This special Liberty Pass will enable the lucky few who receive it to catch the never-before-seen Mythical Pokémon, VictiniTM.

Victini – the Victory Pokémon – is the first ever Pokémon to be both Psychic and Fire- type and it cannot be obtained through normal game play. It is said that Victini creates an unlimited supply of energy, which it shares with others. This energy source may be the secret to how it brings about victories. Victini’s unique and exclusive Victory Star ability not only increases its own accuracy in battle, but also boosts the accuracy of all your fighting Pokémon. Victini is a must-have in any Pokémon battle, and especially useful in Triple Battles, which is a unique new feature of Pokémon Black Version and Pokémon White Version.

Featuring more than 150 never-before-seen-PokémonTM, no matter which version you choose, you’re sure to have fun. With an array of expanded features for taking your Pokémon into battle, you can challenge other trainers in either the game’s main adventure, or go head-to-head against your friends.

To be in with a chance of receiving the special Liberty Pass, grab your copy of either Pokémon Black Version or Pokémon White Version when they launch across Europe on March 4th 2011.
