Post Shiny Dogs to be Distributed at GameStop



Starting in January, Shiny Raikou, Entei and Suicune will be given out at participating GameStop stores across the US. They will each have their own special move that can not normally be learned. Raikou will know Weather Ball, Entei will know Flare Blitz and Suicune will know Sheer Cold. All three will also have Extremespeed. The three legendary dogs will be at level 30 and come in a Cherish Ball and holding a Classic Ribbon.

The distrubiton will take place in three stages:
Raikou: January 3rd – January 9th
Entei: January 17th – January 23rd
Suicune: January 31st – February 6th


The Pokemon can be downloaded in store to any of HeartGold, SoulSilver, Diamond, Pearl or Platinum games. In future, they can be transferred to Pokemon Black & White in order to receive Zoroark. They were previously given out in Japan for preordering tickets to Zoroark – Master of Illusions.

That sounds like a big event, and then later we get Zoroark. It's a Win win win win.

Watch this be restricted to HG/SS owners only, which means no fun for me.

I thought Raikou got Aura Sphere and Suicune got Aqua Ring? Or did the Japanese events have different moves?

EDIT: Hold on, I think the Japanese events had four special moves.

Raikou got: Zap Cannon, Aura Sphere, Extremespeed and Weather Ball, all of which are usually not known by Raikou.

Suicune got: Sheer Cold, Air Slash, Aqua Ring and Extremespeed, which again, are not usually learnt by Suicune.

Entei got: Flare Blitz, Howl, Extremespeed and Crush Claw. See above.

Does this mean some moves haven't been reported, or have Game Freak slashed a few moves because of the ability to get all three?

I just went off what it says on the official site here:
http://www.pokemongoldsilver.com/us/#/news/trio/

I'm not sure what moves the Japanese events had. According to Pokebeach the only difference is Raikou had Zap Cannon?

Edit: Well it does say "... and all Pokemon will have Extremespeed, just to name a few", so I guess it's possible that there are more special moves yet to be revealed?

Edit2: Oh, well that's interesting xD I guess they just wanted to leave some things as a surprise on the official site then.

Bulbapedia has an article up; it says that these events have the same moves as the Japanese ones, which are the ones I posted above.

Aditionally, Raikou will have a Rash nature, Entei will have an Adamant nature and Suicune will have a Relaxed nature.

There are two gamestops near me, both of which always participate in these events.

I have HeartGold, SoulSilver, Diamond, Platinum, and Pearl. I'll be getting A TON of these guys!!!!

5 of each dog, and hopefully if I can do both stores, that would be 10 of each dog.

=^^= Nya
