I noticed that several users keep creating threads just to seek help for events.
So, I've finally decided to create one.

As the title states, this thread is for discussing and seeking help for Pokemon events -- both Wi-Fi and non Wi-Fi.

Be sure to check the main site's list of current and upcoming events here: http://www.serebii.net/games/currentevents.shtml
For a list of BW Wi-Fi events, go here: http://www.serebii.net/blackwhite/wifievents.shtml

I like that they put Victini on Wifi. But I wonder how they'll handle the Zekrom and Reshiram ones.

They will probably take them to Game Shops, or Toys r us. At least in the US.

More of an event related discussion, though I'm pretty sure the answer is no.

Can a Heart Scale be used to remember an event only move?

I think it was great the Victini one was on wifi.
It's too bad there's no Toys'r'us near my house so i miss out on most events.

Anyone think the Darkrai events currently happening in Europe will make there way over to North America?

Or is that Darkrai event simply one of the previous US Darkrai events finally making its way over to Europe?

This WiFi Victini was the first event I ever did. I SR'd to get an Adamant one. Then, I created a UU team with it. Surprisingly, it only took 3 SRs to get Adamant Victini.

You should've RNG'd it instead then you cuold've got flawless IV's as well :)

It's really not, as long as you stay alert and bother to put in effort while learning. It's relatively simple after that. Wondercard RNGing is perhaps the easiest form, along with stationary Pokémon RNGing.

i have the same error like many others. its probalby a server thing as lots of users are trying to download, just look at the amunt of youtube videos, posts, threads and discussions about this error. ive tried at early and late hour and will try further towards the end as mot people should have got it by then but if i dont im going to be annoyed as i missed the evee thing as well

It's in one of the Pokémon Centres in Japan.

It was sometimes this summer (can't remember exactly) at the sime time as the Shelmet and Karrablast events. A strange thing is that the Shelmet and Karrablast didn't seem to be the same as the ones given out in the other countries. They were lv 50, had a different moveset and had a classic ribbon instead of the festival ribbon.

Blazios
14th December 2011, 9:57 PM
Yeah, I think that's the same as all the ones in Europe.

Didn't know you got that, either.

The serebii event database shows the lv 30 ones.

So it does. I checked Bulbapedia before and they had the Level 50 ones.

GoldenMagikarp

Ok. Maybe serebii listed the wrong ones. I thought that it was a little weird with a Swedish exclusive event.

Europe are getting a lot more than us in the UK at the moment :(
Like Spain and Germany currently have a Darkrai event going (France had it too but they've finished)
I hope we get the Mewtwo 1st anniversary event!! Picked my Japanese one up the other day but RNG'd it with a date earlier than it came out (stupid mistake :( lol)
Waiting for Thundurus/Tornadus Jap event to start end of tomorrow so I can download that on my Jap cart.

Really wish we had a Pokecentre in the UK so we'd get all the events they get!! Or maybe I'll have to move to Japan!!!

I agree
i totally understand Japan getting loads of exclusive event Pokemon (no brainier) but why is the U.S and other part of Europe getting more.

From researching Nintendo Europe is based in Germany but that should make a difference but the thing i dont understand is that The Pokemon Company International has an office in the U.S and in London so why not more in the U.K?

its Not cheating, per say, the fact you paid for a Japanese copy shows your commitment.
I got both Black and White games because
A) had the money
B) i wanted them ALL
C) my copy of Pokemon black didnt come on rlease day so i got white that day.

i traded with a guy Jirachi (lv5) and its a Japanese one which i think is kool

It appears that 2rsa will be hacking the Wondercards to get the Dragon-type Pokémon, as how else would one go about getting them on non-Japanese versions with the term "cheating" involved?

Also, it's "per se" and overused.

It seems the UK is going back to the old days when we get no events while everyone else gets all the good stuff. Spain, France and Germany got a Darkrai just before Xmas yet still no sign of it coming over to us :(
Japan get all the great DW events with Single use codes so you can't trawl the internet to find them. While in the UK we get a few rubbish Pokemon that they give a general code for . . says it all.
I really hope we get some events soon or at least something decent at the VGC (didn't even give an event Poke there last year in Birmingham!!!) or I'll be firing off a strongly worded email to Nintendo of Europe lol

This (http://www.nintendo.com/consumer/wfc/en_na/ds/results.jsp?error_code=31020&system=3DS&locale=en_US) is what Nintendo has to say about error code 31020 (I presume you're using a 3DS, as your signature implies). Also, have a read through this thread (http://www.serebiiforums.com/showthread.php?t=545259) (it's evident you already have, but try out the recommendations again if you already have not).

I downloaded the Wi-Fi Darkrai this morning. I was honestly surprised to learn that it was being given away; I was expecting the version exclusive Kami Pokemon. But I guess Darkrai is better than nothing. I have no plans to use the Darkrai yet, but I'll probably trade it to Black 2 when that's out since I want a complete Pokedex.

Only if they go the route of the recent Japanese events and take off the shiny check. I'd say, you're better off waiting until an actual answer to that question.


I don't see why not. There's been nothing to say otherwise.

The majority of events that have been released in Gen IV and Gen V are unable to be shiny(excepting, of course, Newmoon Island Darkrai, and that Shaymin, or any forced shinies). It's never been pointed out by officials that events aren't able to be shiny, that was always determined by players.

I'm 99% sure that it cannot be Shiny. In order for a Wonder Card event Pokemon to be Shiny, it has to be preset to be Shiny (i.e. like the Pikachu-Colored Pichu).

Anyway, I got my hands on a Japanese movie Keldeo yesterday. I don't know its nature since I had it traded to my Japanese White version, but I'm quite pleased with it. I may be able to obtain some more in the coming weeks, but mostly I'm enjoying being one step closer to having a complete Pokedex.
