Special Edition Pikachu Available for DS Download at Toys "R" Us
« on: February 02, 2011, 03:26:39 PM »

Get Ash's Pikachu to travel around with YOU. 

http://www.nintendoworldreport.com/news/25036

For a limited time, Ash’s Pikachu is ready for download in Pokémon Diamond, Pearl, Platinum, Heart Gold, and Soul Silver at local Toys "R" Us retailers.

The store announced that today through February 13 people with the requisite Pok√©mon games can go to their nearest Toys "R" Us to download the very special Pikachu, who will have moves including Thunderbolt, Iron Tail, and Volt Tackle.

The Pok√©mon's availability is part of the advertising campaign for the new Pok√©mon TV show, which follows Ash and Pikachu into the Unova region. The region is the setting for Pok√©mon Black and White, which heads to DS in North America on March 6.

I'm guessing you don't get the plot armor and power Ash's Pikachu has.

Step 1: Shove a Thunderstone in its face.
Step 2: Uh...
Step 3: ... that's it.

Does it come with the obscene attack power that Ash's Pikachu has? Oh well, I might check it out if I have the time.
This is where I would write something witty or funny if I had any ideas.

Who is NWR_Josh?
Why must all things be so bright? Why can things not appear only in hues of brown! I am so serious about this! Dull colors are the future! The next generation! I will never accept a world with such bright colors! It is far too childish! I will rage against your cheery palette with my last breath!

Josh is new blood...I mean fresh meat...I mean he's the new guy. Welcome him with open arms, you heathens!

Anyway. I got myself Ash's Pikachu tonight. He comes in at Lv. 50 with all the attacks listed about and a Light Ball (I forget what that does). His stats don't seem particularly high, though.
This would be my PSN Trophy Card, but I guess I can't post HTML in my Signature. I'm the pixel spaceship, and I have nine Gold trophies.

The Light Ball doubles both of Pikachu's attack stats and basically provides justification for the rat being a gamebreaker in the anime.
