From the 18th to the 25th of September, participating Toys 'R' Us stores across USA will offer an in-store distribution of the legendary monster Zoroark to be downloaded onto copies of Pokémon Black and White versions. The special edition Pokémon is at Level 50 and knows the move Snarl. Leading up to this promotion, fans will be able to watch a free screening of the movie at www.pokemon.com on the 17th and 18th, before the DVD hits nationwide store shelves on September 20. 

Finally, from now until October 3 this year, fans can visit www.pokemon.com/win

Additionally, a weekly draw of 25 second-place winners will receive a smaller pack consisting of just the movie DVD, the trading card collection box and the Zoroark action figure.

Previously, Zoroark was only available in the games with the assistance of a special edition Raikou, Entei or Suicune which were distributed to commemorate the 13th movie's international DVD release early this year.

Not sure how many Pokemon Trainers we have out there, but that whole "Snarl" thing is a big effin' deal!!!!!

Let's just say, I'll be sneaking around the outside of my local TrU to grab its wifi signal.

I'd go inside but, well, there are certain things society punishes men for as being "unmanly" ... taking your DS to TrU to download special Pokemans is very likely one of those things.
