DISCOVER THE NEW MYTHICAL POKÉMON KELDEO

 

 

31st August - Beginning 1st September at GAME stores, Pokémon fans can receive the newly discovered Mythical Pokémon Keldeo in their copies of Pokémon Black Version or Pokémon White Version . This colourful, incredibly powerful Fighting- and Water-type Pokémon cannot be caught during normal gameplay, and this distribution is only for a limited time. Once players receive the Original Form Keldeo in their game, it can be transferred into the new Pokémon Black Version 2 or Pokémon White Version 2 games, arriving in stores on 12th October. In the new games, players will be able to play out a scenario that not only transforms Keldeo into a new form but also teaches it its signature move!

Because the Colt Pokémon cannot be found during normal gameplay, this distribution is the only way Pokémon players can receive it at this time. During the distribution period, 1st September through to the 11th October, Pokémon fans can bring their handheld console from the Nintendo 3DS or Nintendo DS family of systems and a copy of Pokémon Black Version or Pokémon White Version to GAME stores and receive a Keldeo that knows Aqua Jet, Leer, Double Kick, and BubbleBeam. As a Fighting- and Water-type Pokémon, Keldeo excels at moves that are super effective against seven different Pokémon types: Normal, Fire, Ice, Ground, Rock, Dark, and Steel.

Powerful in its own right, when transferred into Pokémon Black Version 2 or Pokémon White Version 2, Keldeo will learn its signature move, Secret Sword, and transform into Resolute Form, a new look that features a more prominent horn on its head. Secret Sword is a Fighting-type move, well suited to Keldeo’s high Special Attack stat. And, because Keldeo can learn this move from the very first stages of Pokémon Black Version 2 or Pokémon White Version 2, it will be a powerful ally as you continue your adventure.

This exciting Mythical Pokémon distribution opportunity is for a limited time only, so be sure to head to GAME between 1st September and 11th October!

To receive the Original Form Keldeo during GAME’s distribution time period, you will need:

• A Nintendo 3DS or Nintendo DS system

• A copy of the Pokémon Black Version or Pokémon White Version game

• The Pokédex within your game

• No more than 11 Wonder Cards in your possession
