searcherTo celebrate Golden Week in Japan, the Pokémon Searcher BW (ポケモンサーチャーBW) will be held at the Nagashima Super Dome in Nagashima Spa Land, Mie Prefecture Kuwana City from April 28, 2012 until May 6th, 2012. The second annual event features a new storyline where participants are to find the Water Jewel (みずのジュエル) which has disappeared. Players use the analyzer (アナライザー), a dedicated terminal to help investigate the jewel's disappearance. The Pokémon Searcher BW entry fee is 1000yen and a separate entrance fee is required to enter Nagashima Spa Land.

A special Pochama will also be distributed to participants of the Pokémon Searcher BW event. This Pochama is special as it knows Hydro Pump at level 15. It normally cannot learn that move until level 43. Players must bring their Nintendo DS and a copy of the Japanese version of Pokémon Black or White in order to receive this Pokémon. This Pochama cannot be traded over the Global Trade Station. Below are the details for this Pochama.
