For those without encyclopedic knowledge of the Pokemon universe, the Sinnoh starters are Chimchar, Piplup, and Turtwig, which you could choose from at the beginning of Pokemon Diamond, Pearl and Platinum editions. Their hidden abilities are Iron Fist, Defiant, and Shell Armor respectively. These aren’t just good abilities to have, their much more interesting to use than the standard “this Pokémon does more damage when HP is low” abilities most starters get.
The only real drag on this promotion is the fact that once again, you have to get it through the Pokemon Global Link and use a code that will be made available on specially-marked copies of Pokemon Black 2 and Pokemon White 2 at Wal-Mart. But don’t fret if you’re a loyal fan who bought your copy of the game on day one, because if this promotion is anything like the Hidden Ability Gothorita one, we’ll be able to post the necessary code on this blog. Still, I don’t look forward to using the PGL again and jumping through their hoops to download another promotional Pokemon.
An exact date for the promotion has not yet been revealed.
