Pikachu also has its Hidden Ability Lightningrod, which (given its gender) may be passed on to its offspring. This is the first time a female Pokémon with its Hidden Ability has been given away. Also of note is the fact that Lightningrod now raises a Pokémon's Special Attack every time it is activated.

The event will begin on July 30, and end on Aug. 28, 2011. So far, it is only available in Japan at the "a-Nation For Life" and "Can You Name Every BW Pokémon?" event locations. This tour will travel through six Japanese cities: Yokohama, Nagoya, Osaka, Fukuoka, Sapporo, and Tokyo.
