Similar to other upcoming event Pokémon distributions in Scandinavia, Finnish retailers Gamestop and Anttila will be offering the Grass/Psychic legendary Pokémon Celebi in the coming weeks.
The dates of distribution will vary from store to store. Some Anttila stores run the even from Feb. 11 through Feb. 20, while the rest will have Celebi available from Feb. 23 through March 3. Gamestop will be distributing Celebi from Feb. 14 through March 4; the distribution ends the same day Pokémon Black and White are released. Note that Celebi is being offered as a pre-order bonus at Gamestop stores, and can only be downloaded if a copy of either Black or White has been reserved. (Anttila's pre-order bonus is a keychain.)
The Celebi Wonder Card is able to be downloaded to any fourth generation game: that is, Pokémon Diamond, Pearl, Platinum, HeartGold and SoulSilver; the Pokémon itself can be collected from any Pokémon Center or Department Store. In HeartGold and SoulSilver, this Celebi will unlock a special time-travel event in Ilex Forest; additionally, if it is transferred to a Pokémon Black or Pokémon White cart, it will trigger an encounter with a Zorua. This is the only known way to encounter Zorua in these games.
This announcement follows many similar announcements about Celebi distributions. In the past weeks, Bulbanews has reported on upcoming Celebi events for Greece, Norway, Mexico, and the United States.
