Download Cartoon Network's Pikachu to your Nintendo DS for free

Got nothing to do this weekend? Why don’t you bring your Pokemon games over to Toys R Us and download some free content! Nintendo is working with the toy giant to offer fans with a Nintendo DS and a Nintendo DS Pokemon game a free download; Ash’s Pikachu! The little yellow pocket monster will work its way into your roster of Pokemon in the following games: Pokemon Diamond, Pokemon Pearl, Pokemon Platinum, Pokemon HeartGold, and Pokemon SoulSilver. After he’s in your game, Pikachu will have all his traditional moves; Thunderbolt, Iron Tail, and Volt Tackle. Better still, if you plan on eventually getting a copy of Pokemon Black and White, you’ll be able to transfer this free download from an old game to the new game (otherwise, Pikachu is only available after the first time you complete Pokemon Black and White).

Here are the full instructions for getting Ash’s Pikachu:

* Players must have a Nintendo DS, Nintendo DSi or Nintendo DSi XL system and their own copy of the English language versions of Pokemon Diamond, Pearl, Platinum, HeartGold or SoulSilver Versions video games (each sold separately).
* Players must have acquired the Pokedex within their game.
* Players must have no more than two Wonder Cards in their possession.
* Visit participating U.S. or Puerto Rico Toys”R”Us stores during the designated distribution period.
