Celebi is coming to Gamestop - February 27 - March 11, 2011  

The rarest of all pokemon, the elusive Celebi will arrive at Gamestop from February 27, - March 11, 2011.   
 

AFAIK, there was no legitimate way to obtain Celebi outside of Japan (i.e. you need the Japanese version of the game or you need to trade over regular wireless or regular Wi-fi [NOT GTS] with someone who has the Japanese version of the game).  

This is pretty much the pokemon that we've all been waiting for, ever since HeartGold and SoulSilver were announced.  

According to Bulbapedia, the Celebi will be Level 50 in a Cherish Ball with a Classic Ribbon, holding a Jaboca Berry.  The move set will be Leaf Storm, Recover, Nasty Plot, and Healing Wish.  So it's essential just like the Japanese Movie Celebi.  

According to Bulbapedia, Celebi will trigger an event in HeartGold and SoulSilver.  Also, if Celebi is transferred to Pokemon Black and White, players can receiver Zorua in Castelia City.  

Credit goes to Bulbapedia News, where I read it.  Here is the link:

All 4th Generation pokemon games (Diamond, Pearl, Platinum, HeartGold & SoulSilver) will be able to download Celebi via Mystery Gift.  As always, you need to have an open slot for your Mystery Gift, so start soft-resetting (I will be soft-resetting Ash's Pikachu).  

I hope people will stop posting about being ashamed to enter Gamestop to download the Mystery Gift Wonder Card.  The reality is ... no one you know will be there, and no one really cares.  :)

I think I'm retarded, but I'm really confused when people talk about soft resetting with the mystery gifts? Is it the same as deleting a wonder card because I've done that XD

I really don't understand why the term "soft-resetting" is being used here, either.

they're talking about soft-resetting a) because they're going to need open wonder card slots... meaning that they need to hurry up and receive whatever it is that they haven't gotten yet.. so they will be soft-resetting their ash's pikachu to make wonder card space; and b) to remind all of us to hurry up and clear our wonder cards before we get to gamestop and find out that our cards are full.

But deleting a wonder card and soft-resetting are two completely different things. Even if you're full-up on wonder cards, there's no need to soft-reset or do any kind of reset to get a new one.

well, in my experience, i've been unable to get more wonder cards from these distributions when i already had three in possession and so i needed to delete one.

i'm not saying they're the same, i'm saying they can be related and i think that's what the OP's referring to, but i do not speak for them. i just offered you what i thought was right, i might be wrong. imo soft-re---never mind i don't care enough to answer.

have a good day :)

Nah, I get what you're saying. I'm just still trying to figure out the OP. ^^

Soft-resetting is where you, before obtaining something from the guy in green in the Pokemart, save your game, talk to him, shut off your game and repeat until you receive whatever it is you're looking for.

For example, if I'm looking for a.. Mew (that was recently given away) with the Jolly nature, I would save before talking to the green delivery guy, then talk to him, check if my Mew is Jolly, and if it isn't I would then shut off my game w/o saving and try again.

oh I've done that too! But I just didn't understand since the OP made it sound like soft-reseting and deleting a wondercard were the same thing :) oh well!

Soft-resetting is a technique to acquire better pokemon than just randomly accepting the first pokemon obtainable.

Here's how it works:

1) Obtain you Mystery Gift Wonder Card, then SAVE.

2) Start up your game and walk up to the delivery man in the green at the Pokemart. Save in front of the delivery man.

3) Figure out the Nature you want to have (some Mystery Gift, like Ash's Pikachu, have a set Nature). Get the pokemon from the delivery man but do NOT save.

4) If you get the Nature you wanted, then open up MetalKid's IV Calculator on the internet & check the IVs. If you are satisfied with the IVs, then SAVE. Otherwise, soft-reset (push both shoulder buttons and the Start and Select button simultaneously) the game. Soft-resetting restarts the game, but it's less stressful on your DS then turning the game system off, then on.

5) When you finally get the Pokemon you want, delete the Wonder Card, since you don't need it anymore. Make sure you do NOT delete the Wonder Card until you accept the pokemon you want from the delivery man at the Pokemart AND SAVE.

You can only have three Wonder Cards, so you need to delete a Wonder Card to open up a slot for the next Mystery Gift Event.

I hope that explains everything.

I know some of you RNG abuse, props to you.

I know some of you don't care about natures and IVs on Mystery Gift Pokemon, because you're not going to battle with them.

I just want my Mystery Gift Pokemon to be the best they can be. :)

Soft-resetting is basically getting your wondercard and then saving in front of the guy on the mart that gives you your Pokemon. Then you talk to him and receive it, and if you don't like its nature, IVs etc. you just soft-reset and pick it up again until you get one you like.

It has nothing to do with the wondercard itself. It's like saving in front of a legend, really.
