Nintendo UK has partnered with GAME to give fans across the UK the chance to capture one of the rarest and most mythical Pokemon of them all - Celebi.

Anyone with a copy of Pokemon Diamond, Pokemon Pearl, Pokemon Platinum, Pokemon HeartGold or Pokemon SoulSilver can head along to one of the GAME stores listed below to receive the rare creature.

Celebi features moves that can't be gained through normal training and there are also special scenarios you can discover. If you bring Celebi into your copy of Pokemon HeartGold or SoulSilver Version, you can engage in a classic confrontation - take Celebi to the Shrine in the Ilex Forest to travel back in time and fight Team Rocket boss Giovanni!

Plus transfer Celebi to your copy of Pokemon Black Version or Pokemon White Version, and you'll unlock the opportunity to catch Zorua, a Pokemon you can't get anywhere else in any game!

The Celebi distribution will be available on February 26-27 at the following GAME stores:

- GAME, Hamleys, 188-196 Regent Street, London
- GAME Preston, Unit 8 Fishergate Centre, Preston
- GAME Glasgow, 285 Provan Walk, Glasgow Fort Shopping Centre
- GAME Reading, Unit 18, Oracle Centre, Reading
- GAME Brighton, 43-44 Western Road, Brighton

The new Pokemon White and Black games will also be available to play at the stores. To find out if the game's been worth the wait head over to our review.

5 stores is ridiculous tbh. Nearest to me is Reading which is an 80 minute drive. I'd have at least expected Southampton to be there :( Oh well.

FIVE stores? That's it? None of which are within a hundred miles of me! Pfffft...

I once went to an event for Darkrai, and was pleasantly surprised to meet plenty of older players, some of whom were even older than me. Sure, there were also plenty of kids there, but it turned out to be quite an entertaining day, much more so than the "Go, get, go home" I was expecting.

Yes! You totally should: If Jamin's review isn't a good enough way to convince you, saying that it's 'the best Pokémon experience on offer then I'm not too sure what is. I'd recommend finding a Pokémon game that you've half finished and play it for an hour or two and then I think that, that will rekindle (sp?) your love for it.

Plus, play are selling it for £26 so it's not as expensive as a 7th gen release.

Went to this yesterday and there were a lot more people than I expected there, older and younger too. There was some 8 year old kid wearing a Halo jumper with a party of level 100s. I mean, woah, he shouldn't be playing Halo at his age.

There's free face painting too: Me and some friends got it done:

'At the following game stores...' Bah! That pretty much means over 50% of the country missing out (if they own Pokemon games and give a damn in the first place).
