Strange that this event would start before the games are released (in the UK).... still, it's good news it's not yet another of those crappy in-stores event!

October just won't come quickly enough, will it.

Serebii is reporting that "GAME are stating that they will be distributing Genesect to Black 2 & White 2 players from the day of release." So looks like there will be a way to get Genesect at stores in the UK at least.

The Genesect you'll get is a Level 15 Pokémon with the Magnet Bomb, SolarBeam, and Signal Beam moves, plus its signature Techno Blast attack. And Genesect comes in a colorful Cherish Ball, a reflection of how the Pokémon was obtained.

This Genesect will be different to the Japanese one which is level 50. http://www.pocketmonsters.net/eventpokemon/1145

English Wi-fi events work with all English games, the event just "starts" the 12th in Europe because that's when the games that can access it are released there. Can't get the event if you don't have a game.
