Nintendo is hosting two special events in New York to celebrate the upcoming launch of Pokemon Black Version 2 and Pokemon White Version 2 for the Nintendo DS family of portable video game systems. On October 6th at the Nintendo World store from 9 a.m. to 2 p.m., fans can gather for a chance to be among the first in the nation to purchase the games in advance of their October 7th release. Additionally, the first 1,000 people in line to purchase either game will receive a unique Pokemon scarf, and all attendees will have the opportunity to take photos with costumed characters of Pokemon Snivy, Tepig and Oshawott.
A week later on October 13th, during New York Comic-Con, Pokemon fans can participate in a massive interactive experience at the nearby Pokemon Black Version 2 and Pokemon White Version 2 Launch Celebration, enjoying a wide array of activities highlighting the imaginative fun of the Pokemon franchise. Planned activities include live performances from the Chicago-based band I Fight Dragons, a live stage show, a Pokemon photo booth, an opportunity to receive the mythical Pokemon Genesect for attendees who bring their Nintendo 3DS or Nintendo DS and copy of the game, hands-on time with Pokedex 3D Pro for Nintendo 3DS prior to its November 8th launch and live Pokemon-themed ice sculpting.
Attendees who participate in the event's activities will receive tickets that can be redeemed on-site during event hours for a variety of Pokemon giveaways (while supplies last). The Pokemon Black Version 2 and Pokemon White Version 2 Launch Celebration will be open from noon to 8 p.m. at SIR Stage37 at 508 W. 37th St. (one block north of the Javits Center). A New York Comic-Con badge is not needed for admission to this free event. Event attendees who are interested in purchasing Pokemon Black Version 2 or Pokemon White Version 2 can take free Nintendo shuttles between the Javits Center, SIR Stage37 and the Nintendo World store during event hours.
