Why is it that Nintendo directly gives us Pokemon like Darkrai and Shaymin instead of just giving us the tickets to their islands?
(Not that I'm complaining.)
Why does Japan get all the cool Wifi Pokes???
it's not fairrrrrrr!!!
While that makes sense I think it takes away the fun of catching it yourself. ^_^
...Unless I'm not understanding something about the way they work.
It's going to be interesting to see the UK version of this event.
UK has a nasty habit of having tours that are one per location for about two weeks rather than the cross country/store events for the week end the states seems to get.
This seriously limits how easy it is to get to them. Also of not our usual choice of venue (Woolworths) has gone bust so I am assuming that Toys R Us are going to get the event back again. (Why not Game or HMV? Much more prevalent).
When at the Darkrai event the chap told me the wonder machine was the only one in Europe which I guess explains why there are only one event per day in the UK, but it rankles compared to the US/JP version of the events which seem a little more accessible.
I still think its odd that the WIFI DL isn't utilised more. Surely it requires less effort than an actual physical tour/event so is in theory the better option.
I'd love to see a weekly random mon DL from the WIFI that was special in some way (shiny, rare moves etc) and then occasional ledend event hidden amongst them for those paying attention.
But I will keep dreaming...
However, if they do as they do and give you the Pokémon via direct download, they can slap a Classic Ribbon on it for authentication, set the OT as something uniform and recognized (like ALAMOS for the Movie Darkrai) and do other small things that prove beyond any shadow of a doubt that the Pokémon was obtained legitimately.
Does the Shaymin has a classic ribbon on it (can't read the poster), because on Bulbapedia they say it doesn't.
I think they are wrong (hopefully not)

While I can't read the poster either, it's a good assumption to make that it's an English copy of the Japanese Movie Shaymin which did have the Classic Ribbon.
The Regigias, assuming it's a copy of the Pre-Order Movie Regigias, should not have a Classic Ribbon.
I'm not really too sold on the Shaymin one, but the Regigigas one I'm more concerned about; seeing as you'll need this to access the Regis's in Platinum.
Why Canada is shafted every time an event occurs is beyond me. And considering the odds of someone willing to trade something like this is slim to none, then really, it nearly forces me to hack to get them.
I'm at least glad that I'm not the only Canadian that feels this way, and wish that they'd use that damned Mystery Gift feature. Why do I have this awkward feeling that that feature won't have anything "major" and will be used for random stuff of no real importance...
Man everyone is so lucky in America, Japan and even England to an extenct, over here in Australia, we get hardly any events, especially up in the north...
THERE ARE POKEMON FANS OVER HERE YOU KNOW NINTENDO!!!!
I beleive that they should do more events over Wi-Fi!!!
You've received both Darkrai and Manaphy movie events. That's certainly better than the zero that are done in Canada.Man everyone is so lucky in America, Japan and even England to an extenct, over here in Australia, we get hardly any events, especially up in the north...
I would be fine with no events anywhere ever again if it meant we never again had to hear a single word of whining about "MY COUNTRY DOESN'T GET EVENTS! I can't obtain a small bundle of mathematical and visual data that won't actually make my life better in any way!"

True, but no Shaymin, Deoxys, Mew, Jirachi and many others, and I didnt say that Canada get more events then us, I said that America, Japan and England do...
Mew: Pokemon Ranch.
Jirachi: The Colosseum bonus disc in Australia had Jirachi. That's the exact same opportunity most got.
England and Australia are on roughly equal footage, having gotten all the major 4th gen events (MAnaphy, Darkrai), PBR 2's Pokemon, and Ranch.
So sorry to take away the "wah I live in Australia" excuse, but you've gotten roughly the same amount as Europe in the current Gen, and the only US events you're missing out on are Gamestop Deoxys and like 12 variations of Surf Pikachu.
Even when they IMPROVE event distribution, people complain, despite having the opportunity to go to the event.
People, every time there's an event, you hear everyone (except for Japanese and U.S. people) just complain about how their country is forgotten by Nintendo. I kinda used to that (i live in NZ), but realising that there's no point in complaning, it's not going to change anything.
It's just iritating to read endless posts of complains. So just hope that somehow you can get the event pokes too (you have wi-fi etc.)

SO to get back to the main point... i applogise, and take back(even though i didnt say it) 'whah, i live in australia...'
With all the whining going on about how people can't have even't pokemon, This is rather the ONLY reason I'm proud to be an American.
I feel empathetical towards the New Zealanders and Canadians. I know what it's like to be so close to something and still can't obtain it.
Really, I only care about the Regigigas giveaway; because I want to be able to acquire the Regis's in Platinum. That's it really. Shaymin doesn't really bother me, and Dakrai I'm getting via Ranger 2.
No one knew that. [/Sarcasm] Anyway just a FYI for all of the Trading Card Players, The Platinum Pre-Realece turnys start on Saturday.
