Shiny Legendary Pokémon treat next month

RPG Nintendo News DS Adventure

We carry good news for owners of Pokémon HeartGold, SoulSilver, Platinum, Diamond and Pearl. From next month you’ll be able to capture Shiny versions of Legendary Pokémon Raikou, Entei and Suicine.

As they are shiny Pokémon they will be a different colour than normal and carry an unusual twinkle as well which will be evident if you encounter them, or after you’ve caught them, put them to use in battle. They will only be available through this special promotion via Wi-Fi connection from 7 February.

It appears the announcement comes with a further silver lining too as those buying Pokémon Black & White should also know that there’s an extra perk carried by the Pokémon from this opportunity. As we understand it, they will help in your capture Zorua and Zoroark in the new Pokémon adventures.

I've been playing videogames since I was about 8 years old. The first ever console and game I got was a red Gameboy Pocket with Pokemon Red.
