Obscure Pokemon gets its own limited-edition items


Octillery, a Gold/Silver-era Pokémon who we had to look up just now (because we've never seen or heard of it) is the focus of a new promotion at Japan's Pokémon Centers. Between November 23 and December 9th, Diamond/Pearl players can bring in their level 65+ Octilleries (called "Okutan" in Japan) and receive a special Octillery sticker, seen above. It's a pretty nice promotion and a nice piece of art for this octopus-thing, we think.

This isn't the first limited-edition Octillery item. The Tokyo store gave away Octillery headbands to high-level Octillery owners in July. Is this a popular Pokémon or something? Is it the jaunty headband?

I have this Pokemon in Diamond and Pokemon Battle Revolution. Is it really that rare?

I guess I'll take the next plane form LAX to Tokyo to get my well deserved Octillery sticker...

Octillery rocks, even if he is a tad on the slow side.

It's not that uncommon. It evolves from a Remoraid at level 25, I think.

It's so popular because of the calamari.

It's because Octillery has an attack called Octazooka, and that's just amazing.

Octillery, along with Rhydon are my favourite pokemon. My card game days made me lov Octillery and like I need a reason to like Rhydon. I'm stoked that "Okutan" (I just learnt that now) Is getting the star treatment. That headband is hot!

Octillery is probably so popular because it can learn Octazooka and Hyper Beam.
