Celebrate Valentine’s Day With… A Really Evil Pokemon?
What better way to say ‘I love you’ than with a special Pokemon that, according to its in-game description, ‘chases people and Pokémon from its territory by causing them to experience deep, nightmarish slumbers’?
Okay, so it’s more likely that Game stores in the UK will start offering Darkrai via serial code distribution to tie into both Friday the 13th and the launch of the new 3DS, but it’s still pretty amusing.
It’s not yet known how long the event will be running for, nor what level Darkrai will come at, what moves it will have or if it may even be the neat shiny variant, but that’ll make it a nice surprise for you when you pop down to Game over the weekend, 3DS in hand, and get one for yourself.
Japan already had its Darkrai giveaway for the amazingly titled movie Pikachu, What’s This Key?, but players in the rest of the world would do well to keep an eye out for local versions of the event soon – aside from a bunch of Japanese exclusives, it isn’t often that event Pokemon are offered in only one region, after all.
