How To Get New Legendary Pokémon, Keldeo, In U.S. And U.K.

By Ishaan . August 20, 2012 . 12:22pm

This morning, Nintendo announced how recently-revealed legendary Pokémon, Keldeo, will be distributed for the Pokémon Black/White games in North America and Europe. Unlike most Pokémon distributions nowadays, Keldeo won’t be given away via the Internet.


In North America, Keldeo will be distributed at select GameStop stores, from August 27th – October 6th. In the United Kingdom, Keldeo will be available at GAME, from September 1st – October 11th. The Keldeo you receive at both stores will come with the following moves: Aqua Jet, Leer, Double Kick, BubbleBeam.


As previously reported, transferring Keldeo to the upcoming Pokémon Black/White 2 games will make it learn a move called Secret Sword, and transform it into its Resolute form.


You can read up on further details of how to grab Keldeo on the Pokémon website.

    …my local games are closed though…

    I don’t live in U.S neither U.K. ‘-‘

  • Tales_of_Master

    None of these game stores are even available in my country, so ***** you Nintendo >:c

  • SirRichard

    Say what you will about what DLC has done to the industry, but I honestly think it’s quite the improvement over stuff like this.

      I never understood the purpose of these tiny window limited release events. Especially stateside, where regardless of advertising efforts (i.e. DQ IX), the only things that brought large numbers of people into the store for a single game were of course, midnight launches. You were only feeding a tiny tiny audience, and ones Ninty already had locked up regardless.

      About the only ‘act of rebellion’ that could be done was to keep the pokemon cart in the distro system past the ‘due date’.

     Hopefully Keldeo is released via wifi in the future for Europe. I don’t live in the UK…. :l

  • Hopefully, EB Games (the Canadian GameStop branch) decides to handle it up here like they did for the shiny beasts.

    How I hate limited time stuff….

  • And people used to complain about Wi-Fi event Pokemon being distributed because “it takes it’s rarity away” on previous articles about it .__.

    • M’iau M’iaut

      Well in many cases they were completely unique with a move set or color splash.

  • …And again poor Australia isn’t even mentioned!

  • Visa Vang

    Now, let’s see what games comes out at the 27th… (excuses)

  • Suicunesol

    It will be distributed via WiFi eventually. I wouldn’t worry. I believe when Celebi and the Legendary beasts were distributed from Gamestop initially, they were made available through WiFi a few months afterward.

    if it’s in between 1st September and 11th October (for GB) and the game actually comes out on the 12th, how am i suppose to get keldeo?

       As stated in the article, the download is for Black/White 1, not Black/White 2.  The games have been out for over a year.
