Just last week, I wrote about a Pokémon you can receive if you buy the game before April 10th. A deal that really is enticing to those who really need to “collect them all.” Now GameStop is adding an extra layer by offering players to start their collection early with Celebi, who will not be found in normal gameplay of the new Black and White versions. If you own either Pokémon Diamond, Pearl, Platinum, HeartGold, or SoulSilver, bring your game to any GameStop in the U.S. to collect your free Pokémon with this exclusive distribution event.

Not only do you get this once in a lifetime Pokémon, you also get a special move called Nasty Plot which increases Celebi’s Special Attack stat. Yes, gamers that do not like Pokémon, People get this excited for these games and will do anything to feed their addiction; even if it is to stop in a GameStop between February 21 and March 6 to begin your collection early. They say you got to “catch them all,” so get going. Who doesn’t like free Pokémon anyway?
