Is your elite Pokémon fighting force lacking a certain adorability
factor? Starting this coming Saturday, February 27, GameStop will have the perfect remedy to your problem -- the retailer will offer a free download
of the legendary Psychic/Steel-type Jirachi
for anyone who treks to the store with a copy of Pokémon Pearl
in tow. The promotion will run until March 13 -- the day before HeartGold and SoulSilver
hit store shelves.
As an added bonus, trainers who have Jirachi in their collection will have access to a special training route on HeartGold
's bundled accessory, the Pokéwalker
. That might just be enough to give us the courage required to suffer the judgmental looks of our local GameStop's customers and employees.
