I'm not one to complain about free stuff, but what the f*ck? Really? A "Pikachu colored Pichu"? That's a thing I can have? Aren't all Pichus pretty much Pikachu colored already? Am I missing something here, or is this just more of that "different colored Pokemon are shiny and more special" wacky fun that we Poke-fans supposedly love so well?

Want to know something even weirder? If you trade this slightly more jaundiced Pichu over to the yet unreleased Pokemon HearGold/SoulSilver, you can trigger an event to grab that bumpy eared Pichu on the left. Don't believe me? It's true! I read all about it on Serebii.net!

You know why I'm being such a jerk about this? It's because I'm trying to cover up that I'm actually totally pumped to get these two cute little bastards. I may try to play it off as cool, but I still love my Pokemans, especially the "special" and "free" ones.

Hit the jump for the  full details taken from the promo email GameStop sent out today.

Only in GameStop Stores: Get a Pikachu-Colored Pichu

Bring your Nintendo DS or Nintendo DSi and your Pokémon Diamond, Pokémon Pearl or Pokémon Platinum game to a GameStop store January 30 - February 14 to receive a Pikachu-colored Pichu! It’s not only a special color, but it also holds a secret you can unlock in the Pokémon HeartGold and SoulSilver versions! It's only available in stores, and it's only available at GameStop. Click here for details.

Pre-order Pokémon HeartGold to get a free Ho-Oh figure, or pre-order Pokémon SoulSilver to get a free Lugia figure, while supplies last. A pedometer Pokéwalker will also be packaged with every game. It will allow you to take a Pokémon with you wherever you go. The more you walk, the stronger your Pokémon will get, and the stronger you'll get.

Available March 14 for DS: Reserve now!
