The release of the Pok?mon Black Version 2 and Pok?mon White Version 2 games for the Nintendo DS family of systems is quickly approaching, and Nintendo is giving fans yet another reason to be excited about their Oct. 7 launch. Consumers who purchase either of the new games early will have the opportunity to connect to Nintendo Wi-Fi Connection (broadband Internet access required) before Nov. 12 to receive the Mythical Pok?mon Genesect for the first time ever through a free, limited-time distribution. In Pok?mon Black Version 2 and Pok?mon White Version 2 ? which are also playable in 2D on Nintendo 3DS and Nintendo 3DS XL systems ? players will return to the Unova region and embark on a new adventure set two years after the events of the Pok?mon Black Version and Pok?mon White Version games.

Genesect, the newly discovered Mythical Pok?mon, has been restored from a 300-million-year-old fossil. Modified by Team Plasma, this Pok?mon has a signature move called Techno Blast. Genesect is the only known Pok?mon with this move. Genesect is a Bug- and Steel-type Pok?mon with the ability to adjust its power levels based on the foe it’s battling. This powerful Pok?mon will be available Oct. 7 through Nov. 12 in the United States.

“Not only can players dive into a brand new adventure on Oct. 7 with Pok?mon Black Version 2 and Pok?mon White Version 2, they also can receive an incredible new Pok?mon 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.”

The Unova region of Pok?mon Black Version 2 and Pok?mon White Version 2 has undergone significant changes, and new additions can be found in both Black City and White Forest. Black Tower is now a part of the Black City found in Pok?mon Black Version 2, while White Treehollow is found in the White Forest of Pok?mon White Version 2. In Black Tower and White Treehollow, players can battle with high-level Pok?mon to earn Exp. Points and items. The layouts of the Black Tower and White Treehollow are randomly generated, creating a unique experience that will challenge players to solve their maze-like construction and defeat the Trainers who stand in their way again and again.

Pok?mon Black Version 2 and Pok?mon White Version 2 are now available for pre-order from major retailers throughout North America for a suggested retail price of $34.99 each. A deposit may be required for pre-orders. See individual retailers for details.
