    (Like the title? I "borrowed" the idea from pinoy78's Wii threads.)

    The latest Nintendo Power announced that participating (sounds ominous) Toys R Us stores in the US will be holding a Manaphy giveaway on Saturday, September 29th from 12:00-3:00 pm. This is good news for those of you who didn't get/want Pokemon Ranger. For those of us who did (like me), we'll have a spare/trade fodder. :D 

    Manaphy will come in a Cherish Ball, a Poke Ball that can't be acquired in-game (only Giveaway Pokemon come in them) which has a colorful animation when the Pokemon enters battle. Manaphy is also equipped with a Red Scarf (the Coolness-enhancing Contest accessory), a reference to the movie Pokemon Ranger and the Temple of the Sea.

    No word on Manaphy's moveset, nature, or level. The blurb only mentioned its unique move Heart Swap. I'm guessing it'll be a standard low-level Manaphy.

    Nintendo Power said to check out www.pokemon-games.com for further details, but nothing's up yet.

    So just out of curiosity, does anyone know what happens if you try to get this but you have an R4DS or an M3DS Simply instead of a real copy of the game?

    Considering they don't look at the cartridges. As long as you had the game up and running, everything should be fine.

    Interesting. Not that I plan on doing so anyways, there are other ways to get a Manaphy. I don't even play Pokemon anymore, just didn't hook me like it did back then. Ouendan has kept my attention for much longer.

    Would love to get the little critter...but would be afraid to see the rest of the crowd that was there. I'm sure a bald 30 year old would stick out in the crowd!

    Gah, I still haven't picked up Diamond or Pearl yet. Well depending on how far along in the game you must be (you had to have gotten the National Pokedex to get Mew back when they did that) I guess I still have time if I want to get one.

    If not, I still have my Mew :D

    I transferred my Manaphy Egg from Pokemon Ranger two days after I bought Diamond. Manaphy is listed as #151 in the Sinnoh Dex, so you probably won't need the National Dex for the event.

    Hmm, I did already get Ranger, Manaphy, etc.

    Oh well, a second one wouldn't hurt, and that's an excuse to go to TRU for TF's!

    Too bad they have to take your cartridge to get it and it's not wireless trades.

    What do you mean it's not wireless trades? It probably is a wireless trade. You trade a worthless mon like a bidoof for it.

    For the TRU giveaway? no you don't. it's not a trade at all. you have a free spot in your team, and it's put in that spot.

    it could be done as a download station (add the manaphy like the TF movie game got the new alt modes at target), or you could hand them your game card.

    either way, it won't be a trade.

    I use my friends AR, but only to complete my Legendaries Collection. I don't even use hacks, or Legends for that matter, in battles and tournaments

    There was a Mew Event in the UK for the GBA games very recently. It was a download into the game pack. They were even telling people to make sure there was an open spot in their party. (I read about that at Bulbapedia)

    And I just checked Nintendo Power again. It says "Bring your copy of Pokemon Diamond or Pokemon Pearl into the store to download a Manaphy..."
