Zekrom, Reshiram distribution to begin this week
Update: This distribution has been confirmed for all European language games.
Zekrom and Reshiram will be available to Pokémon Black and White players with English language games starting March 10. The distribution runs for four weeks to commemorate the first anniversary of the games' international release and ends April 8.
The distribution, like the earlier Mewtwo distribution this year, will be run over the Nintendo Wi-Fi Connection.
As in a similar Japanese distribution last year, each Dragon-type legendary Pokémon can only be obtained by players of the opposite-mascot game. That is, Zekrom is only available to players of Black and Reshiram to players of White.
Both Zekrom and Reshiram are at level 100, hold the Dragon Gem, and have a Wishing Ribbon. Zekrom knows the moves Bolt Strike, Fusion Bolt, Haze and Outrage and Reshiram knows Blue Flare, Fusion Flare, Mist and Draco Meteor. They have their standard Abilites Teravolt and Turboblaze, respectively, and are each in a Cherish Ball. The OT is SPR2012, and the ID number 03102.
These Pokémon have more than just collectors' value, though. By tucking the event Pokémon into the Pokémon Dream World, a new Pokémon Movie" home, which is based on Eindoak Town, will be unlocked and an exclusive C-Gear skin of the tucked-in Pokémon is also unlocked upon completing a game there with Victini.
