The Pokémon Company International have announced that those attending the 2015 Pokémon UK Video Game National Championships can receive Pachirisu through a special distribution.

The Electric-type Pokémon had been part of Se Jun Park’s team when he was crowned the Masters Division World Champion at last year’s Pokémon World Championships – becoming the first Pokémon Video Game World Champion from South Korea.

Having played a key role in Se Jun’s victory, Pachirisu is legal in tournaments for the 2015 season and the Level 50 Pokémon available through the distribution will have the moves Nuzzle, Follow Me, Super Fang, and Protect, and the Hidden Ability Volt Absorb.

The 2015 Pokémon UK Video Game National Championships are free-to-enter and will take place at EventCity in Manchester on Saturday 30th – Sunday 31st May 2015. Successful competitors will win Travel Awards or invitations to the 2015 Pokémon World Championships in Boston, Massachusetts, which will be held in August.
