blog-KeldeoEventImage.jpgAmerican games retailer Gamestop has announced a special character distribution which will run from August 27th to October 6th (the day before Black 2 and White 2 are released) at selected stores in the United States. The legendary Pokémon Keldeo will be downloadable to your Pokémon Black or Pokémon White version game card. While this is a promotion for pre-orders of Pokémon Black 2 and Pokémon White 2 version, you do not need to pre-order the games to access this event.

This Pokémon, already distributed in Japan, arrives in a Cherish Ball at level 15 holding the PP Max item with the moves Aqua Jet, Bubblebeam, Leer, and Low Kick. The American version will be the same. Keldeo's signature move, Secret Sword, can be learned by taking it the Moor of Iccirus with Cobalion, Terrakion, and Virizion. When traded to Black 2 or White 2, Keldeo can learn Secret Sword under the same conditions in Oath Woods instead. Knowing this move in Black 2 or White 2 will allow Keldeo to transform into its Resolute Forme.

Update! United Kingdom Release

For the United Kingdom, GAME and Gamestation stores will run this event from September 1st to October 11th, the day before Pokémon Black 2 & White 2 are released in Europe. The timing of the event is the same in other European countries, but specific stores have yet to be announced.

Update! Italy Release

Thanks to @Frost_4ce we know that GameStop will be handling the Keldeo distribution in Italy betwen September 1st and October 11th!

Update! Australia Release

Australian trainers will get the chance to download Keldeo to their carts from both EB Games and Target stores, reports Bulbanews. This event will run from September 15th to October 11th, 2012, the day before Pokémon Black 2 & White 2 are released in Australia.

Update! Canada Release

According to the official site, Canadians will be able to download Keldeo by going to EB Games between August 27th and October 6th, same as the US!

Update! Sweden, Norway, Denmark, and Finland Release

We've just found out how those in the Nordic regions can get their own Keldeo via PocketMonsters.net! Those in Sweden and Norway can receive their Pokémon at GameStop and Toys R Us stores. Additionally, players in Denmark also have the option of getting it at Spaceworld stores. If you're in Finland, GameStop will be your only choice.

Update! South Korea Release

If you're in Korea, you'll need to wait a little longer as the Keldeo promotion will be tied to the release of the 15th movie in December. No other information is known at this time.

If you have any information about the distribution in a region we don't have listed, drop us a line in the thread!

Update! Netherlands Release

Those in the Netherlands will have three different days at three different locations to grab their Keldeo. Eiganjo tells us the following:

  • September 16th: Speeldag Hoorn
  • September 29th: Some Makro shops throughout the Country
  • October 6th: Toys XL outlets and some Media Markt and Saturn outlets

Update! Mexico Release

Thanks to Sagitario on NeoGAF for letting us know the dates and locations that Keldeo will be available for those who pre-ordered Black 2 or White 2 at GamePlanet. This poster has the full details.

    • News Roundup: Regional Stream Details, New Hidden Abilities & Items, and PGL Tournaments
      By Firestorm
      In 2010 and 2011, players took it upon themselves to stream the Pokémon World Championships using their phones (Thanks Alaka, DrFidget, and Danny). In 2012, we received our first ever official livestream at Worlds via GameSpot and NicoNico. In 2013 we saw The Pokémon Company International bring in expert commentators like Scott Glaza and Evan Latt. In 2014, the stream expanded to the US National Championships.
      Now it is 2015 and we're happy to report that the 2015 Regional Championships in St. Louis, Missouri will be streamed officially by Pokémon on their Twitch channel. The video game and trading card game will both span the course of two days over the weekend of February 14th and 15th in what should be one of the biggest events the midwest has ever seen! Your commentators for the video game will be veterans Scott Glaza (Nostrom) and Evan Latt (plaid). On the trading card game side will be the ever knowledgeable Kyle Sucevich (Pooka) and Joshua Wittenkeller (TheJWittz).
      Additionally, we plan to stream the Southern California Regional in Lancaster, California on the Nugget Bridge Twitch channel so you can tune in to watch during any downtime. This is also a two day event.
      New Abilities & Items
      Hot on the heels of the Generation IV starters, the Generation II starters will be entering the metagame with brand new abilities. Meganium, Typhlosion, and Feraligatr will be available with Leaf Guard, Flash Fire, and Sheer Force respectively for anyone who uses Pokémon Bank between February 27th and November 30th, 2015.
      Additionally, you can now obtain the Custap, Micle, Rowap, and Jaboca Berry by playing a new minigame in the PokeMileage Club on the Global Link!
      Online Tournaments
      There are two online ladder-based tournaments on the Global Link coming soon.
      Generation Showdown
      This follows the ruleset commonly referred to as GS Cup and is the template used for the 2010 Video Game Championships. You will be allowed to use two Pokémon from the restricted list on your team. Registration is open now and the event will happen at the same time as the Missouri, Oregon, Southern California, and Virginia Regional Championships. Check it out on the Global Link.
      February International Challenge
      Though it will follow the Standard format, this will not award Championship Points like International Challenges usually do. This seems to be more of a test and a concentrated pool to test out your teams in. Unfortunately it will happen during Florida Regional Championships and after all other Winter Regionals in Europe and North America are completed. Check out the full details here.
    • Eon Ticket Distribution to Begin Viral Spread at Pokémon Tournaments & Leagues
      By Firestorm
      If you want Latias in Pokémon Omega Ruby or Latios in Pokémon Alpha Sapphire, you'll need to get an Eon Ticket and use it to get to the Southern Islands in the game. So how do you do that? The Pokémon Company International has revealed details on how the Eon Ticket will be distributed in the United States, Canada, and UK. We will add more on other countries as we get more information. Though the ways the first people in each region will receive the Eon Ticket may differ, everyone can spread the Eon Ticket via StreetPass to everyone around them!
      US & Canada
      The over 1000 official Pokémon League Leaders across North America will be sent the very first Eon Tickets. From there they will be able to spread them around. Pokémon Leagues are regular places to meet, talk and play the Pokémon video game and trading card game. If you've never been before, now is the perfect time to find your closest League and meet new people who share your enjoyment of the series as they too look for their own Eon Ticket:

      Find a Pokémon League on Pokémon.com

      Are you a League Leader? Make sure you create a thread for your league in our Local Events forum and let players know they can find an Eon Ticket there!
      Remember, many League Leaders will also be running Premier Challenge Tournaments which are used to earn Championship Points to qualify for the Pokémon World Championships in August. Even if they're not there, you'll more likely than not run into fellow fans who have obtained an Eon Ticket to spread.

      List of Premier Challenges

      You're also practically guaranteed to find an Eon Ticket at the upcoming Regional Championships this February where hundreds of Pokémon fans will show up to compete for the title of Regional Champion and work towards their World Championship invite.

      Lancaster, California - Pioneer Event Center - February 14th / 15th, 2015
      St. Charles, Missouri - St. Charles Convention Center - February 14th / 15th, 2015
      Portland, Oregon - DoubleTree by Hilton Hotel Portland - February 14th / 15th, 2015
      Doswell, Virginia - February 14th / 15th, 2015
      Kissimmee, Florida - Park Inn by Radisson - February 28th / March 1st, 2015

      United Kingdom
      The first to receive the Eon Ticket in the UK will be 15 specially selected players who will be able to spread it to all they meet with StreetPass. These first 15 will receive it at a special launch event and receive the Eon Ticket directly from Junichi Masuda! Full details are expected to be revealed on November 13th.
      Additionally, players with the Eon Pass are very likely to show up to Premier Challenges and Pokémon Leagues over the next few months as well!
