Pokémon Fans Cannot Escape Victini This Christmas

Pokémon Fans Cannot Escape Victini This Christmas

With a Victini-themed sweepstakes, the limited theatrical release of Pokémon the Movie: White-Victini and Zekrom, and a special December distribution event, players will be hard-pressed to elude the victory Pokémon this Christmas, not that they’d want to.

The Pokémon Company International is leading Victini’s victory lap this holiday, starting with the V for Victini Sweepstakes, in which players can enter for a chance to win V for Victini Pokémon Card tins, plushies or the grand prize package of a Flame-Red 3DS, a copy of both Pokémon Black and White, and a whole bunch of booster packs for the collectible card game.

That excitement leads to an extremely limited North American theatrical showing of Pokémon the Movie: White-Victini and Zekrom, an animated epic featuring everyone’s favourite v-headed little freak. The film will only be shown at sele3ct theatres December 3 and 4, so sign up at the movie site to see if there’s a theatre near you.

Capping of the Victini celebration is a special distribution event, giving Pokémon Black and White players a chance to score a Victini of their very own via Nintendo Wi-Fi Connection service, complete with a set of powerful moves to be announced at a later date. Intriguing! Just connect your copy of the game to the net between December 4 and 31 and victory shall be yours.


  • About time we caught up to Japan’s number of Pokemon movies.

    Also, perhaps you should mention that the alternate version (Pokémon The Movie Black – Victini & Reshiram) is airing on TV roughly a week after being shown in the theatres in North America.

  • What happened to this site relating to australian gaming news?
    The movie is only being shown in america, and the victini event has only been listed as “soon” for only europe, and is available only in america during those times.

    • They share articles between the US and AU sites. You can always tell the US ones, flag or no flag.

      The last paragraph is relevant to AU gamers, by the read of it, hence it’s inclusion over here.

  • They really need to proof read these articles….seriously.

    “Capping OF”?

    I swear every article (with the exception of the 0-1 sentence image posts taken from reddit) has at least 2-3 typo’s in it.
    Professionalism people!

    Journalism seems to be impossibly difficult for the US

    • Sorry,I don’t think you can 🙁
      Meloetta was a wi-fi exclusive event for a limited time
      In other words you can’t get her
