THE HUNT FOR THE ELUSIVE DEOXYS BEGINS

Every PokÈmon fan’s dream comes true at Nintendo’s

‘Hunt for Deoxys’ Download Events

26th August 2005 - Nintendo is hunting down its biggest and boldest PokÈmon fans this Autumn to help search for the elusive Deoxys. PokÈmon fans across the country can download Aurora Tickets onto their PokÈmon LeafGreen version and PokÈmon FireRed version games. The Aurora Ticket allows players to visit the previously inaccessible Birth Island and capture the elusive PokÈmon, Deoxys!

Gamers should head down to their local VUE cinema this October and November to get their hands on the legendary Aurora Ticket and experience PokÈmon fever at the official ‘Hunt for Deoxys’ Download event! But the PokÈmon battle doesn’t stop there! The ‘Hunt for Deoxys’ is kicked off with a search where fans have to collect four hidden letters to gain exclusive PokÈmon prizes. The search starts with the hunt’s official media partner JETIX at www.JETIX.com and via postcards at 1,000 schools across the UK where players get top-secret information on the letters’ locations to win prizes such a family holiday and exclusive PokÈmon prizes including copies of the game, exclusive Game Boy Advance SP consoles and tons of other great PokÈmon prizes.

But don’t forget - catching Deoxys is nothing like catching a regular PokÈmon! To download the sought after Aurora Ticket to their Game Boy Advance SP, players must get to a special point in their game of PokÈmon LeafGreen or PokÈmon FireRed to activate the download (see below) - so they’d better get battling now! After receiving the Aurora Ticket from the download terminal, players need to go to Vermilion City in their game and travel to Birth Island. Then, upon completing a tricky puzzle challenge, PokÈmon fans must use their PokÈ Ball or Master Ball to finally catch the exclusive Deoxys!!

All kids have to remember is to take their copy of PokÈmon LeafGreen or PokÈmon FireRed, their Game Boy Advance Wireless Adaptor plus their Game Boy Advance SP to their local VUE cinema, where they can download the Aurora Ticket.

Deoxys, the hidden 386th PokÈmon on PokÈmon LeafGreen or PokÈmon FireRed, is a PokÈmon belonging to the Psychic type, and is only available via download. The most exciting element of Deoxys is its uniqueness. Deoxys has four different ‘Forms’ each with differing levels of stats and abilities. The Form which Deoxys takes depends on which game it is to be found in: ‘Attack Form’ in PokÈmon FireRed, ‘Defence Form’ in PokÈmon LeafGreen, ‘Normal Form’ in PokÈmon Ruby and PokÈmon Sapphire, and finally ‘Speed Form’ in the forthcoming PokÈmon Emerald. By trading Deoxys to each of the other games you can employ different strategies and enjoy exciting battles with each of these different forms. *

* To trade Deoxys to PokÈmon Ruby and PokÈmon Sapphire, you need the Game Boy Advance link cable (sold separately). For trading between PokÈmon FireRed, PokÈmon LeafGreen PokÈmon Emerald you can use the Wireless Adaptor.
