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 holiday, 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 favorite v-headed little freak. The film will only be shown at sele3ct theaters December 3 and 4, so sign up at the movie site to see if there's a theater 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.

I remember seeing Pokemon 2000 in theaters when I was 10. My mom and sister really didn't want to go and wanted to see Chicken Run instead, but I was stubborn and wanted to see Pokemon 2000 and got 3 Ancient Mew TCG cards out of it.

After that fun filled day, my cousin spent the night and showed me Neopets.com and it was my gateway drug that got me addicted to browsing the internet.

Overall it was a really awesome summer.
