The release of the Pokemon Black Version 2 and Pokemon White Version 2 games for the Nintendo DS family of systems is quickly approaching, and Nintendo is giving fans yet another reason to be excited about their October 7th launch.
Consumers who purchase either of the new games early will have the opportunity to connect to Nintendo Wi-Fi Connection (broadband Internet access required) before November 12th to receive the Mythical Pokemon Genesect for the first time ever through a free, limited-time distribution.
In Pokemon Black Version 2 and Pokemon White Version 2 -- which are also playable in 2D on Nintendo 3DS and Nintendo 3DS XL systems -- players will return to the Unova region and embark on a new adventure set two years after the events of the Pokemon Black Version and Pokemon White Version games.
Genesect, the newly discovered Mythical Pokemon, has been restored from a 300-million-year-old fossil. Modified by Team Plasma, this Pokemon has a signature move called Techno Blast. Genesect is the only known Pokemon with this move.
Genesect is a Bug-and-Steel-type Pokemon with the ability to adjust its power levels based on the foe it's battling. This powerful Pokemon will be available October 7th through November 12th in the United States.
"Not only can players dive into a brand new adventure on Oct. 7 with Pokemon Black Version 2 and Pokemon White Version 2, they also can receive an incredible new Pokemon right off the bat," said Scott Moffitt, Nintendo of America's executive vice president of Sales & Marketing. "This limited-time distribution will get players off to a great start with what is sure to be one of 2012's biggest games."
