The special Pokemon Manaphy, not usually found in the Diamond and Pearl DS games, will be available from hotspots this Saturday.
For the first time in the US, a Pokemon download will be available from hotspots in Toys ''R'' Us stores. To get the legendary water Pokemon, Manaphy, you will need a DS with an English version of Diamond or Pearl with at least the first Pokedex obtained, meaning you can't buy a copy of the game at the store and immediately start downloading. Also, you must not have more than two Wonder Cards. Selected Toys ''R'' Us stores across the US will have the Pokemon for download between 12pm and 3pm on Saturday September 29th. Manaphy can be received through the Mystery Gift menu.
Previously, the only way to obtain this Pokemon was to transfer the egg from a copy of Pokemon Ranger. The special version of Manaphy that will be sent to your game has the red scarf as a held item, as in the television series, as well as an exclusive Cherish Ball and unique moves.
More instructions for the downloads are available here and the full list of participating stores should be available on the Pokemon Games website soon.
Thanks to former staffer Josh Hogan for the tip!
