That's right, this Saturday at Toys 'R' Us, you can get a special Manaphy!

I first learned about it at Bulbapedia quite awhile ago (I hope I don't get in trouble for posting the following link, since I'm not totally sure if it falls under the "No Links to Other Pokemon Sites" rule here):

September 29th is looming now, and the official Pokemon site has instructions on how to get Manaphy.

Soooooooo...

Is anyone here gonna do it?

Personally, I dunno. I already have Empoleon as my Water-type, so my getting a Toys 'R' Us Manaphy would be more for posterity than utility (unlike my Toys 'R' Us Mew, who serves as my "LeafGreen" team's Psychic-type). Also, my Dad's been working Saturdays lately, and I have a feeling this Saturday may not be an exception. :notfunny:

I would love to, but the nearest Toys 'R' Us is like thirty-five miles away, I have no car, and the local bus doesn't go that far. So yeah.

I already got one from Ranger...but I may try for another one. We'll see how I feel. Had they said Darkrai, well then, that's a different story.

Posting links is totally okay as long they're relevant to the topic and link directly to the story (rather than linking to, say, Bulbagarden's main page and giving people directions to the relevant material). That link's perfectly fine, just so you know.

Thanks for the info! There's a Toys R' Us fairly near me, so it may be worth the quick trip to get a Manaphy. Especially since I never got Ranger despite fully intending to do so. :P

Oh, good. I already kinda knew that, but I just wanted to be ABSOLUTELY sure. :)

I'm never sure- I just wander around in a certain bliss.

Why are they doing it the 29th!? It's grrrr! Everything is on the 29TH!! Lord!
