Pokémon Black and White Version 2 lands for the Nintendo DS family on October 7th and Nintendo announced today one more reason for fans to be as excited as ever. Gamers who purchase either one of the games early will have the opportunity to receive a special Mythical Pokémon for the first time ever through a free, limited-time DLC distribution.
According to Nintendo, the newly discovered Bug and Steel-type Genesect has been restored from a 300-million-year-old fossil. Modified by Team Plasma, this is the only Pokémon featuring the signature move, Techno Blast. Genesect also has the ability to adjust its power levels based on the foe it's battling.
"Not only can players dive into a brand new adventure on Oct. 7 with Pokémon Black Version 2 and Pokémon White Version 2, they also can receive an incredible new Pokémon right off the bat," said Scott Moffitt, Nintendo of America's executive vice president of Sales & Marketing. "This limited-time distribution will get players off to a great start with what is sure to be one of 2012's biggest games."
Anyone who wants to add the powerful Genesect to their upcoming Pokémon White Version 2 or Pokémon Black Version 2 collection will be able to do so through a Nintendo Wi-Fi Connection between October 7th and November 12th in the U.S.
