The countdown begins when Pokémon Black and Pokémon White launch on March 6, giving trainers a little over a month to catch mythical Pokémon Victini before it disappears.

Fire and psychic powers come together for the first time in Victini, the Pokémon so mythical it's Pokédex number is 000. Players purchasing Pokémon Black and Pokémon White for the Nintendo DS on Sunday, March 6 will have until April 10 to download a Liberty Pass from the Nintendo Wi-Fi Connection service. It's that pass that allows them to take possession of this singularly special pocket monster, and once it's gone, it's gone for good.

Or at least until The Pokémon Company decides to make it available again.

I might be waiting until the 3DS comes out to enter the Unova region, and by that time I will have completely forgotten about Victini. Don't be a Fahey.
