A Quick Diversion: It is, I swear.
The Actual News:
For those who do not know, The Pokémon Company, from July 19th to September 1st, has been sending the Pikachu Cars to visit a bunch of Toys 'R Us stores around the nation.
They're there to give away the Eon Ticket--a special in-game ticket for Pokémon Ruby and Sapphire that allows you to travel to Southern Island. Without the Eon Ticket, it is impossible to get to Southern Island within your game (unless you cheat; not a good idea). Once you're on Southern Island, you'll have an opportunity to capture Latios (in Ruby) or Latias (in Sapphire).
Plus, they're also giving away a bunch of free Pokémon merchandise! That's always fun!
If you go to one, they'll also let you try Pokémon Pinball Ruby and Sapphire. The game is coming out sometime at the end of this month.
So, what are you waiting for? Go to one of the Eon Ticket Tour locations today, before the tour ends for the summer!
