Pokemon.com has announced that the distribution of Shiny Pichu, which are also known as Pikachu-colored Pichu, to players of Pokémon Diamond, Pearl and Platinum will be held at GameStop stores
in the United States from Jan. 30 to Feb. 14. The Shiny Pichu will be level 30 and male only, and they will come in a Cherish Ball. They will be holding an Everstone and a Classic Ribbon, and they will have the Jolly nature. Lastly, they will know the moves Charge, Volt Tackle, Endeavor and Endure. These Pichu, when traded to Pokémon HeartGold and SoulSilver and taken to the Ilex Forest shrine, will allow players to obtain the Spiky-eared Pichu featured in the most recent movie, Arceus and the Jewel of Life. The Spikey-eared Pichu will be female only and they will hold a Zap Plate. They know the moves Volt Tackle, Helping Hand, Swagger and Pain Split, and they cannot be traded. Shiny Pichu were initially given to players of the Japanese games who pre-ordered tickets
to the aforementioned movie. The North American versions of HeartGold and SoulSilver are set to be released on March 14.
Original Link (http://bulbanews.bulbagarden.net/wiki/Distributions_related_to_HeartGold,_SoulSilver_to_ begin_end_of_January) (This news item also has info on a Japanese "HeartGold/SoulSilver" Pokewalker area event, but it's irrelevant to this topic.)

So, is anyone doing this?

Me? Maybe...simply because the fact that this is happening at GameStop, which is a store that's actually in my city (the local mall, to be exact) would make him much easier to obtain than the Toys 'R' Us promo Pokemon I've gotten!

Second, having him would allow me to do the Spiky-eared Pichu event in "HeartGold/SoulSilver" a couple months from now.

And finally, he'd be a guaranteed Shiny Pokemon. :D

Woo, more news!

I might do it. So far the only event that I've done has been the Gamestop Deoxys. Since this one's also at Gamestop, I might actually do it.

Hey guys, me and my Dad got the Pichus!

It was like this: Me and my Dad bought an Xbox 360 Elite bundle as an early birthday present for me (thanks for the good price, Amazon!), and even though we had an old-fashioned TV, we thought it still looked okay...until my Dad got "Test Drive Unlimited" and we both struggled to read the GPS in the lower-left corner of the screen! :\

So yesterday - after many days of deliberation and research - we got a cheap yet nice HDTV at Best Buy (and a new cable for our Wii), but before that, we went to our mall to get the Pichus. It wasn't quite open, but GameStop was transmitting the signal anyway, so we were still able to snag them from nearby.

:172: And that's my Shiny Pichu story! :172:

:D

I got 3 Pichus yesterday, one each for D/P/Pl. For some reason I decided to go and do this in the middle of this blizzard that is going on. More fun that way!! ^_^

Crazy. Maybe it's not as bad over there, but there's no getting out in it here. A foot and a half and still falling. Yeah, I think I'll wait.

Dang that's a lot of snow. It already stopped here, and the sun is actually out. I don't know how much is on the ground, I would guess about a foot or so, maybe less. All I know is that my television is out because my dish is literally over halfway buried under snow and I'm not climbing up there to shovel it out. lol
