    Yes, just make sure you have two pokemon or so then you can trade at the first center.

    I kind of wish you could have been able to put more than one pokemon on the pokewalker at one time. I wish the pokemon events where you can get special pokemon were regulated online instead of being held in NY.

    The problem with it online is the lack of security out there. I think it's fine how it is being in Gamestop.



    Thanks to myself for the signature!

    If anyone wants advice on a pokemon team, send me a PM!

    You mean the events that are now more or less split 60/40 between being held at retail chains that have thousands of locations nationwide and being given away over Wi-Fi, available to everyone with a DS and a wireless router/USB dongle or access to public Wi-Fi?

    They cannot feasiblly make it any easier than it is now. If people really find that neither of the above options are suitable for them, then it really is just too bad. The point of the events is to make them accessible to as many people as possible, which they do. If that doesn't necessarily include every single individual in America, then so be it.

    As I said, their priority is not "everyone," because that's simply not possible. Their priority is "as many people as is realistically possible," which they do.

    They choose retail locations - Toys 'R Us locations, which are usually large, standalone stores and GameStop locations, which are usually found in or very near malls or shopping centers - because business logic suggests, and accurately so, that these locations are in major population centers, and within reasonable travel distance of other major population centers. They are 100% accurate in thinking this, because it's true: I would bet more than half of the American population resides within reasonable travel distance, which we'll call no more than 20 miles for the sake of argument, of one of those locations. And that is reasonably as close enough as you can do. Department stores like Target and Wal-Mart aren't feasible places to hold the events, limiting them to Toys 'R Us on most occasions and GameStop every so often. And in holding events at those locations, Nintendo's PR department has done their job, which is put the events within reasonable travel distance of a fair majority of their constituency.

    Other countries are their own beasts entirely and it's up to the regional Nintendo companies in those countries to do the best they can as well. And for those people who really, really can't get to a store, Wi-Fi events are held on occasion as well, meaning all you need is an Internet connection, a Wi-Fi device of your choosing and a DS.

    Crass as it may sound, their priority is not specifically "people who live in remote area's like in the middle of the Australian desert who dont have a toys r us or gamestop/eb games in every second town." Their priority is to make the events available to as many people as they reasonably can, which means putting the events as close to major population centers as they can, where the largest numbers of people reside.

    If someone "in remote area's like in the middle of the Australian desert who dont have a toys r us or gamestop/eb games in every second town" finds that getting to an event simply isn't geographically feasible and the Wi-Fi events are equally unfeasible, then the best thing I can tell them is that life isn't fair, and if Pokémon is the only time that truth manifests itself in your life, if the only thing you are denied as a result of that truth is a small packet of mathematical and visual data in a video game that does nothing but respond to basic user commands, then consider yourself luckier than most of the people on this planet.

    Why won't they just do the event on the Wi-Fi a week after the games come out?

    Wouldn't that be much simplier, some people don't have the time to drive up to a store just to get a pokemon, nintendo should make it easier for people and do it on a Wi-Fi some times.

    Didn't we just get through discussing this?

    If the terrestrial option is there for you, it's not their problem if you "don't have the time." If it's that important, make the time, and if not, your life will go on without it.

    Well in truth, releasing a pokemon over WI-FI and in the Store at the same time would allow more people to get the said poke, instead of just using the store or just using WI-FI.

    You can't entice the kiddies into buying lots of Pokémon merchandise over Wi-Fi, now can you?

    i dont hate anything really except i wish they would make the ability to have a pokemon follow u a on/off thing. Wish they would make pokemon that everyone likes obtainable in both versions not just on one, referring to growlithe being HG only and i want SS but i guess it encourages GTS/friend trading

    I fear perhaps you've missed the point entirely.

    He got it, though. The point was that a Wi-Fi event doesn't involve children dragging their credit card-armed parents to a retail location that just happens to be chock full of other Pokémon merchandise, readily available for purchase. In-store events are a vehicle to get people to buy more stuff, something not even in the picture where Wi-Fi events are concerned. Remember, it's all about sales figures, and Wi-Fi events do absolutely nothing for those numbers at the end of the day.

    And not everyone has Wi-fi, either.

    But everyone can go down to gamestop or anywhere else. :P
