Q: How do you buy this game?
A: Through the Wii Shop Channel for 1000 Nintendo/Wii points.

Q: How much space does this game take?
A: To quote Wiimote:
A: No. The PKMN that sparkle are either level one hundred or event pokemon. To quote BlitzBlast, who quoted Gamefaq:
Q: What changes the roof color?If your Pokemon meets any of the following criterion it should sparkle with
the named hue; otherwise your Pokemon should not sparkle. Supposing you have
a Pokemon that has a hue and does not meet the following criterion please
Level 100 - Red/Orange
*Fateful Encounter - Blue/Green
Level 100/Fateful Encounter - Red/Orange/Blue/Green
*Note: These auras are reproduced with high consistency but are not at a 100%
occurence rate. Which is to say, "Not always." Fateful Encounter includes
Pokemon that have been purified in XD/Colosseum, obtained at an event, hatched
Manaphy eggs, or are from "Lovely Place."
Without confirmation, but subject to suspicion, the following criterion have
been, until possible future update, ruled out as a cause for the sparkling
- Max Happiness
- Max IV (in at least 1 stat)
- EV trained
- With Ribbon
