Catching these just got easier

Excited about Pokémon Black and White? Of course you are, and what better way to boost that excitement than with a monster-themed giveaway at Gamestop?

Trainers who visit participating stores will receive the legendary trio of Raikou, Entei and Suicune in their super-rare Shiny forms for their Pokémon HeartGold and SoulSilver games. Transfer the glittering beasts over to Black and White and you can unlock Zoroark, a monster that can't be unlocked by normal means in the game.

The promotion is running from today until February 6th, so you have a month to snap up those Pokémon ahead of the launch of Pokémon Black and White on March 6th. Details are below.

Details for receiving the Shiny Legendary Trio:

What: Shiny Raikou, Shiny Entei, and Shiny Suicune character distribution

Where: U.S. and Canadian GameStop stores.

When: Shiny Raikou-January 3 through January 9, 2011
Shiny Entei-January 17 through January 23, 2011
Shiny Suicune-January 31 through February 6, 2011

How: Players must have a Nintendo DS™ system and their own copy of the English language versions of Pokémon Diamond, Pearl, Platinum, HeartGold or SoulSilver Version video games (each sold separately).

Players must have acquired the Pokédex within their game.

Players must have no more than two Wonder Cards in their possession.

Visit any U.S. or Canadian GameStop during the designated distribution period.
