    Technically, you could keep restarting your game until the shiny one comes up.

    They have a shiny lock.

    Even in Black 2/White 2?

    As for the Hidden Grottos, couldn't you just soft reset until you get the desired Pokémon?

    I believe not, only thing that's soft resettable is the Nature.

    And yes the shiny locks carry on in BW2.

    I tried to SR the Grotto bros before, they are always either male or female. I SR'd at least 12 times one time before I lost my patience. lol

    Really, it seems most people complaining are people who missed or skipped events rather than actually never got the opportunity to obtain them. I often see Australians on this forum complain about missing events when in fact they've gotten every single major event the US has gotten except for Manaphy since Gen 4 started.

    Honestly, not being able to get Reshiram or Zekrom shiny isn't that big a deal IMO. I actually prefer their normal sprites (of course Zekrom does look cool with blue eyes). What I mostly think is unfair is Japan getting all of the good stuff. For instance: DW starters, V-Create Rayquaza (well, that one is korean but still), Meloetta, and now a Victini with blue flare AND bolt strike?!

    Seriously, if they don't release Meloetta over wi-fi along with the movie in december, I'm gonna be pissed!!!

    Or this one? Meloetta is fairly recent and the Glaciate Victini was just announced a few days ago. Why are you equating that with "OMG we'll never get these!"

    Please see above. And what if it's in-store rather than Wi-Fi?

    How is this excluding an entire country?

    That's certainly not the problem in my case.

    They released Genesect here in america before Meloetta, and he comes after meloetta in the pokedex. I don't think they've done this with mythical pokemon before, and they didn't do it like that in japan, so I see it as a bad sign. Not necessarily that it won't ever happen, just a bad sign of it not happening (like with the DW starters and V-Create Rayquaza. Actually I have gotten most of the DW starters in wi-fi trades, so I'm not worrying too much. But it would be nice to have ones that are nick-nameable).

    And I guess I am over-reacting with the Victini. I guess they might release it in the states.


    Though I do find it a bit unfair that you only get one leftovers per game (or 2 at most, outside of pickup).

    If you go to the Pokemon website, or facebook, you can see that they are just buttering us up for that promotion. They wouldn't have mentioned that it can transform and then say, "Sorry guys, you're out of luck."

    Cipher sent us to hell - but we're going even deeper - take back every Pokemon that we've lost!

    Is there something that says event Legendaries must be released in order, otherwise it signals the coming apocalypse? Is anything made drastically different because we got #649 before #648?

    YES IT IS THE END OF THE WORLD!

    I guess that some people are a little obsessive compulsive and like to do the pokedex in order.

    It also spoils the surprise of more hidden legendaries, like:

    "Hmm, I've got every Pokémon in the game, even Keldeo and Genesect, so why is the 648th slot empty?"

    If there's anything unfair in the pokemon games, it's that they made it so the trainers in the battle subway have hax on their side. I always lose because of hax >.<

    You'd think after five generations, Game Freak would have fixed the Eeveelutions' movepool issues (as well as those of a bunch of other Pokemon that I can't think of right now).

    I was also hoping we would get a better selection of TMs in BW, but instead, we got... Incinerate, Ally Switch, and Quash? Really? At least B2W2 gave us move tutors again, but shards aren't always exactly easy to come by.

    It's ashame a little bit that the new Victini event is Lax only but this doesn't stop me from getting this Victini.

    @Crimson Penguin: I agree on some movepools like Leafeon and Flareon (no I don't want Flare Blitz on this guy as Darmanitan still exists).

    Curse you Game Freak -____- I was unaware of this.

    Definitely unfair but I guess I should get it anyway

    Shards are simple to get in BW2. Simple way. Go to PWT, then in the first round, click run. There, you get a free consolation shard...

    Eeveelutions kinda need signatures, because otherwise sometimes they'd be outclassed.

    I think it's disappointing how there's no good non questline stuff to do in 5th gen. The movie thing is wayyy too customised, I'd prefer Contests or Pokeathlon tbh.
