    Toys 'R' Us to distribute Ash's Pikachu: Distribution to last Jan. 30 through Feb. 5

    Toys 'R' Us has announced that participating stores in the United States will distribute an in-game representation of Ash's Pikachu from January 30 through February 5, 2011. The Pikachu will be available to all Generation IV games, though will not be distributed via Wi-Fi like a similar Japanese distribution earlier this year.

    This gives me hope that goon's Scizor and Manaphy with lansat berry will be in before Black and White.

    I wasn't them expecting to do this one outside Japan.

    Personally, I'd rather they didn't waste their already very limited remaining time with Gen IV on an event like this, which is only really a novelty and doesn't actually do anything. Why haven't any of the remaining 3 Pokewalker Courses gone up? A nation-wide retail giveaway seems like a lot of effort to go through for an event like Ash's Pikachu... distribution cartridges to produce and whatnot. Surely Wi-Fi would've been a better choice.

    I was worried that they wouldn't distribute this event outside of Japan, too. Now I'm happy. It's a great treat for fans of both the games and the anime.

    Sounds go--- oh, wait, I'm not in America.

    First the Beasts, now this. Hopefully they go back to doing WiFi events soon.

    As a fan of both generation IV AND the anime, I'm thrilled to get this.

    Hopefully I'll be getting six of each, so I'm open to trading for near nothing.

    :/

    Really? An event that was also Wi-fi not being distributed as such? It's not like Toys R Us even got a good event so I don't know why it cares. Though, I guess it works in favour for little kids who watch the show and don't know the value of the Shiny Beasts because they don't go online.

    Looks like they're showing the Best Wishes photo of Ash in their site too. Has Best Wishes even been previewed in the US yet?

    Though for once I'm glad. When I saw "Toys R Us" I was hoping "Please not Celebi"

    I'm happy they decided to release Ash's Pikachu to Toys 'R' Us stores in at least the U.S. and possibly Puerto Rico but I'm very shocked by it as well. I wasn't expecting Ash's Pikachu to be released and definitely not before the big Celebi event that will more than likely be at a store rather than Wi-Fi.
