We’ve got a couple news nuggets for Pokémon fans today pertaining to the Deoxys distribution event which is going on now for Black and White 2, and news on the adventures included in X and Y will be featured on Pokémon Smash soon.

Deoxys the Psychic Pokémon

Let’s start with the current event first.

As we told you last month, from now until May 31, two strains of the Mythical DNA Pokémon Deoxys will be available for Pokémon video games and the official Trading Card Game.

Players of Pokémon Black 2 or Pokémon White 2 can add Deoxys to their Pokédex in a special distribution event via the Nintendo Wi-Fi Connection service, while TCG players and collectors can find the new Pokémon TCG: Black & White — Plasma Freeze expansion, which includes the powerful Deoxys-EX card, at retail stores.

Pokémon TCG: Black & White — Plasma Freeze, is available now in stores, in 10-card booster packs and pre-constructed theme decks of 60 cards.

For those who own Black 2 or White 2, to get this Poké for your collection, you will need to do the following: have Wireless broadband Internet access; a DS, DSi, DSi XL, 3DS, or 3DS XL of course; a copy of either Pokémon Black 2 or Pokémon White 2 and no more than 11 Wonder Cards in your possession.

Pokémon X and Y

The games’ director, Junichi Masuda will be discussing new information on the games on May 19 via Pokémon Smash.

According to ONM, the show will be a massive Pokémon X and Y special and will focus on the adventures included in the titles instead of the creatures you pack around Poké balls.

Also, the next edition of CoroCoro magazine, out next week, will contain new information for Pokémon trainers as well.
