There's your Reading, JimLad!

It's a good job I'm not that into Pokémon, because none of the events are anywhere near me.

That picture's from Serebii.net. I assume you've got permission to use it, but careful if not - the webmaster there is really twitchy about other sites using his stuff.

There's none of these in the North East of Scotland, the closest one to me requires travelling on train for several hours and the events are in less than a week, why didn't they announce them sooner? If they can't distribute them better, it should just be done through wi-fi.

@6 US is from the Feb 21st to March 6th? At least it is in Canada at Gamestop so I imagine the dates are probably the same for the US.

I think there's booths you can get it at as well with the B&W tour but I've only looked into the Canadian areas that they are doing that.
For Canada they're only going to Vancouver and Toronto.... so most Canadians will be going to Gamestop.

I got me five Celebi! One for each DS game. If you take it to Ilex Forest, it triggers an event, too!
Its OT is "WIN2011" in red text, ID no. 01211.
Celebi is Level 50, has Leaf Storm, Recover, Nasty Plot and Healing Wish.
It comes in a Cherish Ball, has a Classic Ribbon and is holding a Jaboca Berry.

But most importantly, it filled a gaping hole in my Pearl's pokédex. Hooray for event legendaries!

I'll probably head to the Glasgow event though annoyingly Glasgow Fort isn't even in an easy to reach part of the city
