The press release detailing the previously reported European release of Pokémon Black and White Versions has revealed that the "Crown Beasts" - shiny versions of the Legendary Beast trio Raikou, Entei and Suicune - will be available over the Nintendo Wi-Fi Connection throughout February 2011 to all main series Generation IV games. Raikou will be distributed from Feb. 7 to 13, Entei from Feb. 14 to 20, and Suicune from Feb. 21 to 27. Like last year's Pikachu Colored Pichu and Jirachi, these events will be available to those in North America (and elsewhere) who weren't able to participate in the equivalent retail event held in their own country. In addition to English, the Beast trio will be downloadable to owners of French, German, Italian and Spanish-language games.
The Crown Beasts, when transferred to Pokémon Black Version or Pokémon White Version will allow the player to battle and capture a level 25 Zoroark, a Pokémon not available through normal means.
The press release also confirmed that an event for Celebi will be available in the United Kingdom in the near future.
