UK players will have the chance to obtain Celebi, as well as preview the forthcoming Pokémon Black and White, in a series of in-store events held by GAME on 19-20 and 26-27 February.
Ten locations across the country will host the event. Celebi, the Time Travel Pokémon, can be downloaded to any Generation IV game. Celebi activates a time-traveling encounter with an old adversary in Pokémon HeartGold and SoulSilver, and can also be used to catch Zorua when transferred to Pokémon Black and White.
Aside from the Celebi download and preview of Pokémon Black and White, promotional material promises face painting and a prize draw.
