A wild Victini appears, just in time for the new Pokemon movie

We're guessing that a majority of our readership isn't too terribly stoked for the two-day theatrical arrival of Pokémon the Movie: White-Victini and Zekrom, which is really the real name of a real movie. This, however, may tickle your fancy: Coinciding with the film's December 3 launch, players of Pokemon Black and White will be able to grab a Level 50 Victini through the game's Wi-Fi Connection portal.

This promotion comes with two benefits, the first of which being that Victini, a legendary Fire and Psychic type with moves that enhance the powers of his teammates, is a powerhouse. The second is that you don't have to go to Toys R' Us to attempt to stealthily grab Victini, living in constant fear that you'll end up on some kind of government watchlist.
