Unlock Black And White's Star Pokémon Before The Games Come Out

The illusion fox Pokémon Zoroark, star of the Zoroark: Master of Illusions movie, won't be available through normal gameplay in Pokémon Black and White, but you can get him two months in advance by visiting GameStop. Want to know how?

Not only will Pokémon HeartGold, SoulSilver, Diamond, Pearl, and Platinum players be able to score each of the three legendary shiny Pokémon - Raikou, Entei, and Suicune - by visiting GameStop this month, securing any one of these sought after creatures will earn players the ability to unlock Zoroark for their troubles! Pokémon Black and White don't even come out in North America until March 6, so seize the moment and secure your Zoroark as soon as possible!

Here's the schedule for GameStop unlocks:

Shiny Raikou-January 3 through January 9, 2011
Shiny Entei-January 17 through January 23, 2011
Shiny Suicune-January 31 through February 6, 2011

That's both U.S. and Canadian stores. Note that players need to have acquired the Pokédex and have no more than two Wonder Cards in their possession.

I will, of course, completely forget this event is happening until a week after it ends. Go get him for me, kids.
