[img align=left]http://www.pokecharms.com/gamesprites/pl2/492sky.png[/img]With Pokemon Platinum arriving in the UK on May 22nd, GAME stores across the UK have given fans the opportunity to pre-order copies of the game, with all pre-ordered copies being sold with a small discount....but that's not all. Stores across the UK are also allowing players to download an event Shaymin onto their Diamond/Pearl game, complete with the moves Seed Flare, Aromatherapy, Substitute and Energy Ball. The Shaymin will be level 50 and be contained within a Cherish Ball. The hold item hasn't been confirmed, although odds are it will be the Micle Berry item that other event Shaymin have held in past events.
The number of events taking place is considerably higher than the number of events that gave away Darkrai last summer, with multiple events taking place across the UK on every day between the 4th and 18th of April, except for the 6th, 7th and 14th of April. The usual event activities will be taking place at those locations as well.
The Shaymin events will also be held in Spain starting from April 15th at GAME stores, and it's likely that France, Belgium, Italy and the Netherlands will be having their events start at the same time as the Spain events. Germany's events will be being held in ten McDonald's restaurants across the country between April 25th and May 17th.
