Fifth Generation Are Pokémon slaves to humans? Team Plasma thinks so. Travel the Unova region and prove them wrong in Black & White, and then return two years later in Black 2 & White 2.

Those living in the USA will be able to participate in a special Black and White tour spreading across the country. From February 5th until March 20th, in 14 different stores across the USA, certain events will be occuring throughout the stores. This includes demos of the games before the release, a free screening of the Zoroark movie, a scavenger hunt, a download to get Celebi and more!

Below is more information on this tour.

POKÉMON LAUNCHING NATIONAL MALL TOUR TO SUPPORT RELEASE OF POKÉMON BLACK AND POKÉMON WHITE VIDEO GAMES

Blockbuster Year For Pokémon Franchise Kicks Off With Opportunity For Fans To Play Highly Anticipated Video Game Titles

BELLEVUE, Wash. - January 11, 2011 - Pokémon Trainers get ready... the Pokémon Black Version and Pokémon White Version video games for the Nintendo DS™ family of systems are touring America! The Pokémon Company International announced today that one of the most anticipated video game releases of the year will be supported by a multi-city national mall tour starting February 5th - a month before the March 6th U.S. launch of the games. The 14-city tour will give fans an opportunity to discover all-new Pokémon while playing the brand-new adventure that has already taken Japan by storm. The mall tour will kick off a blockbuster year for the franchise with more activities, entertainment, and product releases on tap throughout 2011.

Each two-day stop along the Pokémon Black Version and White Version Tour will offer fans a truly immersive experience based on the new world found in the video games, with Pokémon taking over malls to celebrate the marquee releases. Video game demo areas will showcase Pokémon Black Version and Pokémon White Version, allowing fans to experience the games firsthand. Families can attend a free screening of the new Pokémon feature-length film, Pokémon-Zoroark: Master of Illusions, at theaters located at the mall tour stops. The tour also features Pokémon character meet and greets with brand-new starter Pokémon Snivy™, Tepig™ and Oshawott™, a mall-wide scavenger hunt, a special Celebi™ character distribution at GameStop stores; plus contests, prizes, and much more! A Pokémon Center store offering merchandise will also be on-site.

"The anticipation for Pokémon Black Version and Pokémon White Version has been palpable, and we are eager to introduce these fantastic new games to America," said J.C. Smith, The Pokémon Company International's director of Marketing. "We cannot wait to hit the road and give Pokémon fans an up-close and personal look at an all-new world of Pokémon in a fun, totally immersive environment."

The Pokémon Black Version and White Version Tour will run every weekend through March 20th in the following cities:

February 5th and 6th:

* Seattle, WA (Westfield Southcenter, Seattle, WA)
* Cleveland, OH (Westfield SouthPark, Strongsville, OH)

March 5th and 6th:

The mall tour kicks off a historic year for the Pokémon franchise that will introduce an all-new trading card game expansion, feature-length film, animated series, and merchandise. The multi-pronged rollout will thrust the Pokémon brand into the spotlight across its many entertainment offerings.

I'm kinda disappointed it's only in the USA, since that'd be really awesome - but I doubt a store nearby me would do so anyway even if it was in Australia. Though I do think this will be great promotion for the games and possibly boost sales with the demos going on during the tour.

ARGH!!! :cer_pissed: I don't wanna go all the way up to Jacksonville. :cer_cry:
It's kinda strange that they would continue the promotion after the games were released.

This sounds like a good event would have thought they stopped around 5th March though, too bad I'm not from the US

However if anything is revealed we'll probally find out a day later.

Mostly likely new names for Pokémon, moves, characters, or towns will be revealed since we pretty much know everything else already.

    Yes, I can go to the San Jose one! That's not too far away. :D
    I'm getting excited but most of the stuff there will probably be pokemon and things I already know.

      Sounds exciting but I don't think that my mom would be willing to take the train again to NY/NJ. Just in October we took it to ComicCon so she probably doesn't want to go back so quickly...

      ... Maybe.... Maybe I can get her to take me... She'll probably be put off by the mobs of people but hopefully, it's only an hour away... *Grumble*

        I'm gonna try and be at the one in Grapevine, despite the fact that by March 12 I'll already have my copy of Black.

            Does anyone know if the Celebies are being distributed at stores other than the ones being visited by the tour?

              Ugh, I don't want to have to drive to Indianapolis for it but I want to go. XD I think it would be fun to go but heck if I know, I am 18 now so may be a bit odd driving 3 hours to show up where a majority of kids will be. XD

              ;_; I was really hoping they'd hit at least one mall in Canada. I know they did some sort of event in Toronto for... was it HGSS or Platinum? One of the two. So I was disappointed that there was nothing Canadian on that list. Or even anything really close to the border. Baaaw.

              Celebi is at TRU or Gamestop (I forget which one), but no announcement over whether it'll be in Canada too or not. :(

                OMG OMG OMG! I AM SOOOOOOOOOOO GOING!

                It will be an oprotunity to play the game, and get some english names. Since its hard to make a "restricted" demo for main pokemon games, you will probably play through the normal story line. Most of the pokemon that appear at the begining of the game, haven't been revealed in English yet. So we can expect the get the english names of the home town, yorterri, minezumi, bel, cheren, ect, ect, ect.

                So i am as excited as (insert noun that discribes my burning excitement for the event here)

                I so wish I could attend. I live in Canada and I don't have access to any of those places. It'd be interesting to play the demos. Just like the DP demo. I also wonder if it will have the same fate as the DP kiosk demo?

                  YES! Phoenix! I'm definitely going!

                  I'll already have my copy of White on the 19th, but I'm still going, regardless.

                    Wow, there's none in Virginia? That sucks, but oh well. Have fun to all who are going to be participating.

                      Still so excited after hearing this! That is certainly some amazing news!
                      I'm really happy that B&W is getting it's own tour, and with all kinds of goodies! Especially the Zoroark movie! <3 Talk about really exaggerating the games! GF and Nintendo sure are proud about B&W.
                      They are gonna arrive here in Denver.. I wish I could go but I doubt anyone would want to take me.. D:
                      My family is a bunch of anti-Pokemon people because they think I'm too -old- for it now. One day I'll get my permit and I can just take my own self. xP

                      Guess I'll miss out on Celebi this time... 3
                      Oh well! At least I'll have shiny Suicune and can at least get Zoroark. ;D

                      I've never been to those kinds of events, but I don't like the fact that it's US-only. I don't want to go all the way to California just for a video game promotion.

                      The closest mall to me that's doing this event is in Jacksonville, and that's 7 hours away. Oh well, I won't miss out on much.

                      On second thought, my parents probably won't drive me there even though it's 20 minutes away. :(

                        Ahhaha useless Jacksonville. You may have replaced Pokemon event-central Orlando, but I'll destroy the Unova's Elite Four by the 19th. I have no use attending this nice gesture.

                        I'd be so happy if it comes in Europe too... But most likely not unless it will be given away over the Wii (which I don't have...) But the rom of the demo will be released just like the Guardian Signs demo won't it?

                        It's a shame that it's only in America, I knew it woudn't come to Europe though, but like I said, hopefully if new information is revealed i.e English names of Pokémon, Towns, Moves ect. then it will be leaked online within hours after.
                        With the demos I don't think they'll be on a ROM, they'll just be avaliable at the Event like they did with HG/SS people uploaded videos to Youtube of the Demos which were videos of them playing at the event.
                        Heck, it will be starting in February 5th so the games will be less than a month a way from release anyway.
                        I do remember, however demos being held in my home town, this was 2 weeks prior to HG/SS's release.
