Pokémon Black Version and Pokémon White Version videogame players will get the Pokémon of their dreams, and give their opponents nightmares, when The Pokémon Company International kicks off a special character distribution event next month featuring the Mythical Dark-type Pokémon, Darkrai. The elusive Darkrai comes equipped with a special attack and special Ability that send opposing Pokémon into a frightful scenario when used together.
Coinciding with the Darkrai character distribution is the retail release of the Pokémon TCG: Black & White—Dark Explorers expansion. This brand-new expansion features Darkrai-EX and an intimidating line-up of other Darkness-type Pokémon such as Zoroark, Umbreon, and Sableye. The Pokémon TCG: Black & White—Dark Explorers includes more powerful Pokémon-EX cards that inflict serious damage during battle, including Tornadus-EX, Kyogre-EX, Raikou-EX, and Groudon-EX.
Darkrai also stars in a full-length feature film, The Rise of Darkrai, coming to www.pokemon.co.uk/ex. Pokémon fans can watch Darkrai battling Dialga and Palkia while Ash races to save a town from being thrown into another dimension. Specific details about the special attack and special Ability will be revealed when the Darkrai character distribution begins 9th May.
To participate in the Darkrai character distribution event via Nintendo Wi-Fi Connection service, players will need wireless broadband internet access, a Nintendo DS, Nintendo DSi, Nintendo DSi XL, or Nintendo 3DS system, a copy of the Pokémon Black Version or Pokémon White Version videogame and no more than eleven Wonder Cards in their possession. Electronic Theatre will keep you updated with all the latest details on the Pokémon videogame franchise.
