Finally, an event Pokémon!

It has been revealed that for the first time in a very long time, Australians can now receive an event Pokémon, Manaphy, when they visit JB HiFi between the 7th and 13th of November using the Mystery Gift function.

The Aussie Manaphy has a Red Scarf, and Cherish Ball and its moves are Heart Swap, Water Pulse, Whirlpool and Acid Armor and interestingly enough, cannot be chucked onto the Global Trading Station and also, you can only receive one per game card.

Event Pokémon in Australia are few and far between, so maybe this will be first in a decent line of event Pokémon for Australia.

Oh yeah.. I completely forgot/don't care ^_^
Still. To give you a Pokemon for free without buying a freaking game is a change.
Thats what I consider to be real event Pokemon, not "Ohh buy this game and we'll give you a Pokemon" :P
