@fpssoviet Yep, even if you got Victini first time around there's nothing stopping you from getting this one as well. :)

Also, finally another Black/White distribution. They're a bit thin on the ground outside Japan, I'm sure this is only the second.

@2 It's only the 2nd legendary giveaway outside Japan (after the first Victini), but there's also been an Eeveelution, Banette, Croagunk, and a random egg containing either a Pidove, Axew, or Pansage.

I don't know why Nintendo is wasting money on even a limited release of the newest Pokemon movie in theaters. The core games are still popular in the USA but everything else connected to the franchise has fallen massively since the late 90s when Pokemon first came out. There are going to lose money on this.

On 2nd thought, nice for Nintendo to finally release the V-create Victini, as that's the move that really helps it stand out among the various other fire pokemon. The first Victini was already on Black and White (but required a liberty pass to unlock it) and it didn't have V-Create.

I've been looking forward to this event since Serebii first announced it. I did get a liberty pass victini, but this new one has such sweet moves that I can't wait to get my paws on it. Is it Saturday yet? XD

@9 Yes, all DS carts also work on a 3DS. As for which one to get, you should take a look at this list of exclusive Pokémon.

@10 Yeah, it's an awesome moveset. I'll switch out Searing Shot for Psychic, but the other 3 moves will be here to stay on mine.

This is prefect, I could always use a second legendary pokemon, that won't be used in battle and it's nice to see it's not Japan only.

So much for the exclusivity of the Liberty Pass. So will I now get a Pokemon ambassador reward? At least Nintendo kidded us longer than with Super Mario All-Stars.
