Posted by Yoshi648 on January 10, 2010 at 9:43 AM
Serebii.net has posted with information from a trusted source saying that two new event Pokémon will be coming to the U.S. for Diamond, Pearl and Platinum. The first one is the Pikachu-colored Pichu that will be given out near the end of the month. This Pichu when transfered over to HeartGold/SoulSilver will allow you to get the Spiky-eared Pichu in Ilex Forest. The second event is for a special Jirachi at the end of February. This Jirachi will unlock a special course for the PokéWalker called Edge of the Nights Sky. Again, these are not 100% confirmed but are still likely due to the release of HGSS in March.
UPDATE: Serebii has confirmed that the Pikachu-colored Pichu will be available in the US. It can be downloaded January 30th to Feburary 14th at GameStop. This Pichu can be downloaded to Diamond Pearl and Platinum. The Jirachi will also be available at GameStop at a later date.
