A few days ago, Serebii reported that an Extremespeed Pikachu was going to be distributed to commemorate the launch of a new bullet train in the Japanese region of Kyushu. Today, he came back on the subject, since that's not all there is to this giveaway. On top of that, three different distributions will take place, and in each one you'll get one of three Pokémon. Out of the nine Pokémon distributed, three are currently known: Sceptile, Milotic and Metagross. It's still unknown whether they'll have their DW abilities or not, but as far as the three I just mentioned go it's not a big deal, since they already have their DW abilities, and only Sceptile's is of any interest. New moves then? It's a more likely scenario, though it's also quite possible that they have nothing that makes them different. Which would be sad.
One thing we DO know about the remaining six Pokémon, though, is that
they will all be generation 3 Pokémon as well. Oblivious ignoramuses
will immediately read into it as SIGN OF REMAKES, but the reality is
much more simple (that's even before factoring in Saturday's tacit
confirmation that there'll be no remakes this gen), and it's due to the
fact that Kyushu is the region Hoenn was based on.
But wait, that's not all! Yet another giveaway, set to take place after the three I mentioned above, will distribute Kyogre and Groudon! Once again, it's unknown whether they'll have any special moves (though we can agree that Kyogre does NOT need any!), but between the Pikachu, Kyogre and Groudon, you can only get one out of the three. That's right, should you choose to get the Pikachu, you're not getting Kyogre and Groudon. Why? I don't get this at all.
