For those of us living outside of Japan, obtaining Pokemon distributed by Nintendo's specially organised events has always been a difficult affair. In the past it has meant journeying to a specific place at a specific time to download the rare beastie in question. I distinctly remember having to catch two tubes and a bus to Watford in order to get a Mew for my original Pokémon Red cartridge.
Over the years Nintendo have gotten better at handling these events. Tours have gotten longer and taken in more areas, giving fans more chance to get a download.
The company's most recent event exclusive 'mon is Keldeo. It's a water and fighting type based on d'Artagnan, the fourth Musketeer, in that it is said to be the most recent recruit of Unova's Swords of Justice "trio". It joins the series' impressive ranks of existing legendaries.
Fans should be well aware of the importance of an event Pokémon. Obtaining one takes you one step closer to Pokédex completion and gives you a nifty talking point for your team. It's never been easier to get an event download either: all you need to do is head down to any GAME store between now and Thursday October 11th (inclusive) with your Nintendo DS, DSi or 3DS with wi-fi activated and a copy of either Pokémon Black or White. Select the download free gift option and Keldeo is all yours. The helpful staff should be able to help you sort out any problems you may experience.
