Zekrom, Reshiram distribution to begin this week
Zekrom and Reshiram will be available to Pokémon Black and White with US, European, and Australian games starting March 10. The distribution runs for four weeks to commemorate the first anniversary of the games' international release and ends April 8.
The distribution, like the earlier Mewtwo distribution this year, will be run over the Nintendo WiFi Connection.
As in a similar Japanese distribution last year, each Dragon-type legendary Pokémon can only be obtained by players of the opposite-mascot game. That is, Zekrom is only available to players of Pokémon Black and Reshiram to players of Pokémon White.
Both Zekrom and Reshiram are at level 100 and hold the Dragon Gem. Zekrom knows the moves Bolt Strike, Fusion Bolt, Haze and Outrage and Reshiram knows Blue Flare, Fusion Flare, Mist and Draco Meteor. They have their standard Abilites Teravolt and Turboblaze, respectively, and are each in a Cherish Ball. The OT is SPR2012 with ID 03102.
These Pokémon have more than just collectors' value, though. By tucking the event Pokémon into the Pokémon Dream World, a new "Pokémon Movie home will be unlocked and an exclusive C-Gear skin can be downloaded.
