Attention Pokemon trainers: Victini Wi-Fi distribution begins this Saturday

To coincide with the release of the latest Pokemon movie, Pokemon the Movie: White-Victini and Zekrom, a special Victini will be available for download via the Nintendo WFC for anyone with a copy of Pokemon Black or Pokemon White beginning this Saturday, December 3 and running through the end of the month. Both of Victini's signature moves, Searing Shot and V-create, have previously been unobtainable outside of Japan (Victini can't learn them normally), so even the less-than-hardcore Pokemon fans would do well to take advantage of this opportunity.

This level 50 Victini also comes holding a Fire Gem, a one-time use item that boosts Fire-type moves by 50%. Combined with Victini's Fire-type STAB, you're looking at at least one easy one-hit KO. As a shout-out to Zekrom and Reshiram, Victini's moveset also includes Fusion Flare and Fusion bolt, the two cover legendaries' respective signature moves.

The Victini and Zekrom movie will also be in theaters this weekend only, December 3 and 4 (locations and showtimes here), so if you'd like to relive the nostalgia of seeing a Pokemon movie on the big screen, now is the time.

    This is kinda unfair, Japan has been getting pokemon downloads out the wazoo. Im still waiting for Genesect but this is nice I guess.

    Cool but I really want them to do another Mew give away because I couldn't get it the first time around and mew is my favourite pokemon of ever.

    Thanks for the heads up, Carolyn. It's about time we got some WiFi Pokemon releases, Japan has been getting some great ones this past while. I see a tag team of Victinis in my future... That sounded bad. You know what I mean... *cough*...

    Must get! I still hate that the only other time it was possible to get it was a two week time frame right after the game released.

    Finally a reason to dust of my copy of Pokèmon Black again. I still have yet to finish the main storyline, come to think of it... XD
