Nintendo has just announced that players who buy Pokémon Black and White right away will be treated to an early giveaway.  Starting March 6th, 2011 through April 10th, 2011 players will be able to connect to Nintendo Wi-Fi Connection to obtain a Liberty Pass.  This special in game item, which is not obtainable through normal gameplay, will unlock an area where players can capture the new Pokémon Victini.

Nintendo has the following information to share on this new Pokémon:

Victini – the Victory Pokémon – is the first Pokémon that’s Psychic- and Fire-type and cannot be obtained through normal game play. It is said that Victini creates an unlimited supply of energy, which it shares with others. This energy source may be the secret to how it brings about victories. Victini’s unique and exclusive Victory Star ability not only increases its own accuracy in battle, but also boosts the accuracy of all a player’s Pokémon in battle. Victini is a must-have in any Pokémon battle, and is especially useful in Triple Battles, which debut in Pokémon Black Version and Pokémon White Version.
