Shiny Pichu Event at Gamestop

Shiny Pichu American event
Just heard from a friend that Gamestop is hosting an event between Jan 30th and Feb 14th that gives away a shiny Pichu.

'Someone let the Delcatty out of the bag a bit too early as a deleted post from the official Pokemon website revealed GameStop will be distributing a Shiny Pichu starting January 30th. Pokemon Diamond, Pearl, and Platinum players can grab the little guy to unlock another unique Pokemon that's only available in the upcoming Heart Gold and Soul Silver titles.


As for Shiny Pichu itself, it is used to unlock the Spiky-Eared Pichu in Pokemon Heart Gold and Soul Silver...'

I debating it. I definitely burned myself out playing Platinum till my eyes bled.

Thanks for the update! I'll be getting one. I find that it's less creepy to go to these events (usually go to the Toys R Us ones) with a group of friends than by yourself. If you're, you know, over 12....

I live in a small town, we dont even have a toys r us so this will be the first one I can go to! Im super stoked!

I will be grabbing one too. It is pretty easy to quietly sit outside and grab the signal..

Can you really do it from outside the store? ive never done it before so i dont really know what happens. I thought you would have to go inside and get it from the employees with a ds or something.

I've done a couple of events. Since they are spread out over a few days it's not as bad as it could be. I usually stop by and grab it before going to look around the store (at least at Toys R Us). With this one being GameStop it won't be as easy to just "breeze through" but my local GameStop knows me anyway...

And yes, I will be getting this one. I really need to get my Poke-House in order before Silver comes out. My complete collection of legends is on one cart and I have been slowly trying to transfer them to my newest cart (Yea for husbands who play DS!). I wanna have all that done before Silver hits.

P.s. I notice you put hunky animated men on your posts... Where do you get em?? And who is in this one!? I dont recognize him.

The gif is of Matt Bomer. He's one of the main characters on White Collar, a show on USA. He's actually a Christina Aguilera loving friend of Dorothy irl. He has a husband and kids. So he has become my new gay icon. Love him.

Uh...there are tons of comms on here to find hot icons of dudes, if you go to photobucket.com, tinypic.com, gifsoup.com and so on you can find gifs of actors, hot guys, etc.

That is from my photobucket.

And just to be nit picking (cuz I am)...

In your profile you have two broken image links and it's "Psych" not "Sike". =)
Jan. 22nd, 2010 12:24 am (UTC)
sike, is another word for tricked. Did they break? I havent actually looked at my own profile in forever. Damn.
Jan. 22nd, 2010 12:35 am (UTC)
lol I know the meaning of the word.

psych also psyche (sīk)
v. psyched, psych·ing, psyches
v. tr.
1. To put into the right psychological frame of mind: The coach psyched the team before the game.
2. To excite emotionally: The children were psyched to see the circus.
3. To analyze, solve, or comprehend.
4. To anticipate or guess the intentions of: "Most others could never approach [his] ability ... to psyche out the opposition's thinking so consistently" (Steven Brill).

Where as:

  /saɪk, sɪk/
–noun Scot. and North England.
1. a small stream.
2. a gully or ditch, esp. one that fills with water after a heavy rain.


And yeah your images are broken.

Sike is slang. This is from Urbandictionary.com

sike 2962 up, 1612 down love it hate it

November 24, 2007 Urban Word of the Day
buy sike mugs, tshirts and magnets
The immediately preceding statement is false and was told to mislead.
I really miss that show Blossom ... SIKE!

And whoa, way to pick on the new guy.

I wasn't picking. I was trying to help maintain the English Language.

Yours is from Urban Dictionary. I am sure they have an entry for 'Sup as well. Mine was from Dictionary.com.

Again, I know the usage, I know the word, and I promise you that it is not now nor was it ever spelled SIKE. That came about with the invent of AOL speak, the same folks who spell 'What' - 'Wut'.

There are only about 30 of us left on Livejournal, everyone else left for Facebook. Least we can do is ask the ones that remained to know how to spell. =)

I assure you NO ONE else is surprised by my comments. Not an asshole, just someone who actually cares about the written word.

Alright, well in my own defense, I do believe that everything in my post was spelled correctly, whereas my own personal journal was made by me when I was an emo midschooler and therefore should not be used against me now. Like I said, I have not edited my profile in a long LONG time. Since then I have gone on to graduate from college and receive a BIS in Sports Medicine as well as a minor in Marketing and Business Administrations. In my time I managed to pick up an Associates Degree in English as well. So please believe me when I say I have come a very long way since I made my profile and I do care.
