Get Pokémon Black/White Version 2 Early to Catch the Mythical Pokémon Genesect

The release of Pokémon Black Version 2 and Pokémon White Version 2 for the Nintendo DS (also playable on the Nintendo 3DS in 2D) is just around around the corner, and Nintendo of Canada has issued a bit of news that will benefit those who can get their hands on the game between its October 7th release and November 12th, 2012.

For the first time ever through free, albeit limited-time distribution, those who get either game and connect it to the Nintendo Wi-Fi Connection before November 12th will be able to acquire the Mythical Pokémon Genesect:

Genesect, the newly discovered Mythical Pokémon, has been restored from a 300-million-year-old fossil. Modified by Team Plasma, this Pokémon has a signature move called Techno Blast. Genesect is the only known Pokémon with this move. Genesect is a Bug- and Steel-type Pokémon with the ability to adjust its power levels based on the foe it’s battling.

“Not only can players dive into a brand new adventure on Oct. 7 with Pokémon Black Version 2 and Pokémon White Version 2, they also can receive an incredible new Pokémon right off the bat,” stated Nintendo of Canada Vice-President and General Manager Ron Bertram in a press release. “This limited-time distribution will get players off to a great start with what is sure to be one of 2012’s biggest games.”

Pokémon Black Version 2 and Pokémon White Version 2 will be available on October 7th at a Manufacturer’s Suggested Retail Price of $34.99, and you can learn more about what changes this game brings over the original Pokémon Black Version and Pokémon White Version at
