Nintendo today announced that it will be making the rare Enigma Stone available on the Nintendo Wi-Fi Connection to help HeartGold and SoulSilver players to catch Latios and Latias.
Similar to the other half of the Legendary pair that can be caught normally during gameplay, the Pokémon encountered with the Enigma Stone will be at Level 40. In exchange for the Enigma Stone, Pokémon fans will also get the Soul Dew, a held item that powers up the Special Attack and Special Defense of Latios and Latias. Only Pokémon players who have beaten the Elite Four, claimed the National Pokédex, and have two or fewer Wonder Cards can solve the riddle of the Enigma Stone to capture Latios for Pokémon HeartGold Version or Latias for Pokémon SoulSilver Version.
This special distribution event is only available for a limited time. For more information, players should visit www.pokemon.com
Latios and Latias are both eligible for use at the Pokémon Video Game World Championships in Kona, Hawaii, August 14-15. Pokémon video game players can still win a spot to compete for the title of Pokémon World Champion by participating in the Last Chance Qualifier tournament taking place on August 13, 2010, at the Hilton Waikoloa Village on the Big Island of Hawaii.
