Woooooo!

That's actually pretty soon.. I wonder when the Oak's Letter event is gonna be held for JP!Platinum. All I know is that it's in Spring 09 or something. :(

Is there anything released about its moveset or anything? Just curious. Hopefully it'll be identical to the JP movie Shaymin. I really, really don't want to have to grind to level 100 to get Seed Flare..

Well, to be fair they didn't in Japan either...

it's funny, this kind of reminds me of when I was first playing Pokemon Blue, I was real excited to get high level pokemon, I thought it was so awesome, but now... I'm kind of wishing Nintendo would do something like release lv1-5 Jirachi, Shaymin, or Mew...

I'm pretty sure that's like 2010 in Japan and like 2011 in U.S.

Sweet! ^^ Anyone know if they're giving away the Shamyn itself, or allowing you to activate it's in-game event? Anyway, it's an event I can actually get to! Woo-hoo!

I was actually the first person to know about this, outside of the people in the loop with it.
About time.
Pokemon.com may actually be referring to Regigigas though, not Shaymin.

You download it, just like the Darkrai, you get it ingame by using Wi-fi mystery gifts(Platinum only.)

That is SO awesome! Any Pokemon DS game you say? Well, I have wanted to try out Mystery Dungeon for myself...or maybe Trozei. That's a cute puzzle game...

Why? Why? Why?!

This always happens to me.

Last year I went to the US (I live in Mexico) exactly in the week sandwiched between the Darkrai event at Toys R' Us and the Deoxys event at Gamestop. I couldn't get either, obviously. I then went on vacation/study trip to Spain, but we were 3 days in London. Yes, the week before the Darkrai event at Woolsworth.

And now, just after my parents tell me we're going to McAllen, TX on February 2nd, Shaymin is announced to be distributed exactly one week later.

I hope I can convince them so we can go that week...

Oh, and if I go, and the $5 off is valid for later purchases, I'm saving them for Platinum.

Yeah, that's what I was hoping for. The $5 off being usable for Platinum... or a reservation thereof.
