Character distribution confirmed for 2012 Pokémon National Championships

2012 Pokémon Video Game National Championships attendees can look forward to a unique character distribution event, The Pokémon Company International have announced.

During the Championships, taking place across Europe during March and April, Pokémon fans will be able to collect a rare Shiny Larvitar, a Rock and Ground type Pokémon with unusual colouring.

This Shiny Larvitar knows the powerful Fighting-type move Superpower, previously only available in Pokémon HeartGold or SoulSilver from a special tutor. It also comes holding a useful Chople Berry, which is difficult to obtain in the games.

Larvitar can eventually evolve into Tyranitar, which, thanks to its strong stats and its Sandstorm ability, has proven to be a popular character with players since first introduced in Pokémon Gold and Silver.

So, make sure you bring your copy of Pokémon Black or White, as well as your Nintendo DS, Nintendo DSi, Nintendo DSi XL or Nintendo 3DS.

The 2012 Pokémon Video Game National Championships are due to be held on Saturday 3rd March, at the Birmingham NEC within the UK.

You can also catch a teaser trailer for the event below:
