Get Shaymin at DS Download Stations only at TOYS”R”US!
February 8 - 14

Bring your Nintendo DS and your Pokemon Diamond or Pokemon Pearl Game Card to Toys “R” Us to receive Shaymin! (in-store only)

PLUS…
Get $5 Off ANY Pokémon DS Game title! & Get a Free Pokémon Poster!


Plus, pokemon.com has this to say (http://www.pokemon.com/#news_/XML/news_344.xml). Not sure if that's referring to the same event. There's no mention of the Shaymin event on pokemon.com, but it would be weird for them to officially announce it a week after it's been revealed elsewhere.

Of course the obligatory question here is, anyone going?

I will probably. I think there's a Toys R Us in the Annapolis Mall, and I go to school right outside of Annapolis, so I could easily slip in after class...

!!!!!!!!! HOLY HELL THAT WAS FAST!

It's not even a joke. I'm so going. Shaymin forever :D

Getting real tired of this 1 a cart crap. I hope Ninty World still has the flub up and allows me to get one from there too >>

Edit#3 LOL good job Pokemon.com. Wait a week >>

Thanks for the info!! I am a little surprised at the release date though, I thought for sure the Shaymin promo would have been sometime in the spring after Platinum was released, especially since Shaymin is kind of a Springtime-ish Pokemon and since Shaymin has the alternate form in Platinum. Oh well, this is still cool though!! ^_^

They JUST opened a new Toys 'R Us in Secaucus. Finally, I can get something on my Diamond copy.

And $5 off any DS Pokemon title? Maybe now I can finally check out an alternate series...

Which series is more worth looking into: Pokemon Ranger or Pokemon Mystery Dungeon?

More news about this: The Facebook page has been taken down. So I'm guessing that was a leak, and we now all know what event pokemon.com will be announcing on the 29th.

There's the links to the posters for both the Shaymin event, and a up-until-now unknown Regigigas event. From the posters, it looks like they'll be equivalent to the movie Shaymin and Regigigas given away in Japan, which unlock the Glacidia Flower and Regi events in Platinum.

I've read about both these promos, and I'd like to do them both (assuming the Shaymin promo is still on...I've been confuzzled since I learned that the Official info disappeared, but what Jeff said about it being a possible leak is likely :)).

Shaymin will have this moveset, and it will come in a Cherish Ball.

Energy Ball
@Micle Berry.

So yes, you will also be getting an unobtainable berry with Shaymin!!


Any chance of this happening in toys r us' in Australia?

...What the hell kinda moveset is that? Seed Flare obviously.
Aromatherapy for lose >> Team Player I am not.
Substitute for what blasphemous reason?
Energy Ball eh ok since Seed Flare =unique >>

Why the hell they'd waste a space on Sub, I dunno.
But I'm still getting it n_n.

Well, me and my Dad did a lot of shopping yesterday, and we got Shaymin in our "Pokemon" games as part of it.

Afterwards, we had lunch at CiCi's Pizza Buffet. They have several TVs in there, and one of them has Boomerang (Cartoon Network's channel dedicated to old cartoons - they were showing "Huckleberry Hound" ones that day), and they had a commercial for "Giratina and the Sky Warrior" on at one point...how crazy awesome is that? :keke:

I need to make a mini-banner for Shaymin (and Dragonite).

So did anyone get the offensive Umbreon?

No huh. Let's explain. I went to the Toys R Us on 42nd street. Upon reaching the video game section I notice that security is patrolling the area. I whip out my DS and walk in, trying to access the download, but instead of a Shaymin..I'm getting an Umbreon.

The wonder card for the Umbreon reads
"Gary was here Ash is a Fag!"

I found this to be funny, but the parents in the store watching their kids download this Offensive Umbreon did not. So security was trying to figure out whom was giving out this obviously hacked Umbreon.

It was a Lvl 100 Umbreon, and it came in a Cherish Ball as well. It's a shiny, with Pokerus.

Umbreon w Life Orb
Adamant
331/251/257/140/296/229 <--Someone alert me if that's a 31 IV Umbreon's final stats.

Volt Tackle
Judgment
Psycho Cut
Giga Impact

HIIIIIIIIIILARIOUS. I wanna bred it just so I can attempt to get 31 IV Eevees, lol.

Oh and it has high Sheen and perfect Coolness with 21 ribbons, ranging from the Effort Ribbon the the Legendary Ribbon. All in all an awesome hacked snag, along with Shaymin-which was able to be downloaded moments later after they reset the signal.

Who would hack and disrupt signals to give away that Umbreon, I dunno, but it worked perfectly. Kudos, hackers, you had a field day Sunday.

Shaymin can actually make very good use of Substitute. And Aromatherapy, but whatever.

But anyway, according to the movie I'm forcing myself to watch, it's a movie tie-in the same way they gave movie Darkrai Spacial Rend and Roar of Time. Shaymin used Substitute to save itself at least once.

Yeah I just finished watching the movie. Those were the only moves Shsymin used.

Today pokemon.com officially confirmed the Regigigas event. If nothing else, you can at least get a new berry even if you have Regigigas. The promo runs from Sunday, March 8th until Saturday, March 21st. It is Level 100 and comes in a Cherish Ball.

Hey guys, me and my Dad just got back.

We decided to go to a different Toys 'R' Us than the one we got Mew, Dragonite and Shaymin at this time, which was easier said than done 'cause the that had always been there was closed, 'caused they moved to a different part of town! Eventually, we finally found it and I got Regigigas for my "Diamond" and my Dad's "Diamond" and "Pearl".

There's something I wanna tell you, though. According to a guy working in the Electronics department there, he heard from the TRU corporates (or whoever) that the Regigigas promo ended yesterday (despite the fact that it's supposedly on 'til the 21st)! Fortunately, I was still able to get the Regigigases.

Has anybody heard of that? :confused:

DarkestLight
15th March 2009, 04:44 PM
Nope. Regigigas is til going strong in NYC, I got mine yesterday, I didn't even walk in the TRU, I tried from outside and was able to snag one.

You were?

Lucky you! I tried that with Dragonite and it didn't work. I had to go into the store and stuff to get it.
