Pokémaniacs all around the world now have only a month to wait until Pokémon Black & White 2 hits stores in North America and Europe, as well as some AR zapping fun with Pokémon Dream Radar on the same date. Nintendo is upping the ante further to encourage early adopters of the DS sequel, through a Wi-Fi 'mon distribution event.
The creature on offer is a new Mythical Pokémon called Genesect, with a cool move called Techno Blast: we wouldn't mess with it, anyway. If you're in the U.S. and connect your copy of the new game online between launch on 7th October and 12th November, the metallic bug will be all yours. At the moment this is only confirmed for the United States, but we'd be surprised if other regions don't have the opportunity to join in. You can check out the full details from Nintendo in the press release below.
The release of the Pokémon Black Version 2 and Pokémon White Version 2 games for the Nintendo DS family of systems is quickly approaching, and Nintendo is giving fans yet another reason to be excited about their Oct. 7 launch. Consumers who purchase either of the new games early will have the opportunity to connect to Nintendo Wi-Fi Connection (broadband Internet access required) before Nov. 12 to receive the Mythical Pokémon Genesect for the first time ever through a free, limited-time distribution. In Pokémon Black Version 2 and Pokémon White Version 2 - which are also playable in 2D on Nintendo 3DS and Nintendo 3DS XL systems - players will return to the Unova region and embark on a new adventure set two years after the events of the Pokémon Black Version and Pokémon White Version games.
Genesect, the newly discovered Mythical Pokémon, has been restored from a 300-million-year-old fossil. Modified by Team Plasma, this Pokémon has a signature move called Techno Blast. Genesect is the only known Pokémon with this move. Genesect is a Bug- and Steel-type Pokémon with the ability to adjust its power levels based on the foe it's battling. This powerful Pokémon will be available Oct. 7 through Nov. 12 in the United States.
"Not only can players dive into a brand new adventure on Oct. 7 with Pokémon Black Version 2 and Pokémon White Version 2, they also can receive an incredible new Pokémon right off the bat," said Scott Moffitt, Nintendo of America's executive vice president of Sales & Marketing. "This limited-time distribution will get players off to a great start with what is sure to be one of 2012's biggest games."
The Unova region of Pokémon Black Version 2 and Pokémon White Version 2 has undergone significant changes, and new additions can be found in both Black City and White Forest. Black Tower is now a part of the Black City found in Pokémon Black Version 2, while White Treehollow is found in the White Forest of Pokémon White Version 2. In Black Tower and White Treehollow, players can battle with high-level Pokémon to earn Exp. Points and items. The layouts of the Black Tower and White Treehollow are randomly generated, creating a unique experience that will challenge players to solve their maze-like construction and defeat the Trainers who stand in their way again and again.
