A normal-colored Larvitar

The Pokémon to be distributed at this year's Video Game Championships has been revealed.

While only confirmed for European games so far, Shiny Larvitar can be obtained by attendees of this year's championships using their Pokémon Black and White games. The Larvitar will know Superpower, which the species can only learn through a move tutor in Pokémon HeartGold and SoulSilver, and will hold the Chople Berry, which weakens Fighting-type moves. Lastly, the Ability that will come with the Larvitar is Guts.

This follows the trend of Pokémon distributions at the World Championships, right after Pikachu in 2007, Lucario in 2008, Shiny Milotic in 2008/2009, Weavile in 2009, Crobat and Shiny Eevee in 2010, and Scrafty in 2011.
