    One could equally debate the necessity of this thread.

    It's a Pokemon news site, so it posts Pokemon news.

    If you own japanese games you can still obtain the Wi-Fi events

    Would you rather Serebii to be LESS consistent with reporting? We already have enough biased media

    This is pretty much exactly what went through my head when I saw this thread. Not everyone lives in the US and I'm sure, since almost all site can be viewed internationally, that someone from Japan could very easily find this site and change the browser setting so that it's viewed in Japanese. Besides, even people who live in the US can obtain the Japanese versions of the games, and they can participate in those events because of it.

    - You're clearly overestimating the number of unofficial Pokemon news sites.
    - You're underestimating how likely it is for someone in the US to get a Japanese version of the game. Let me enlighten you on this. It's EASY! You just get online and order it! Simple as that. A lot of people like to have the Japanese versions of the games so that they can see what kind of things were cut when it was shipped to the US and a lot of people order them to do so.

    Well, Joe post news on most events give outs. Plus where he got that info is often is official sources. Usually the same ones that you get unreleased game info from.

    There are people who have access to Japanese Games, but Japanese is not their first language, they will be glad for news like this. I know that several of the staff have Japanese games in their collections. Several of them even have Japanese 3DS, since the 3DS is "region" locked.

    We're not the only site to do stuff like this: filb.de is a well known German site that does a lot of news. Actually I think they do more than we do, but then I failed 1st year German.

    We've been doing this for several years, and now Pokémon X & Y is going to get a world wide release at almost the exact same time, because of us fans. Some of it, is because site like Serebii.net and filb.de usually gets the info out and translated with in hours of the release of the info. Have you compared the official sites to what we have? We often have a large amount of their info posted on here in hours, if we don't have it already. Plus would you want to wait for news about new Mewtwo frome, or have it now.

    Seriously, for the the BW2 Promo video, I saw an English subtitled version of it with in hours of it leaking. (Actually, I was one of the few people subtitling it: http://www.evernote.com/shard/s9/sh/...82877cb8bc64bd The text entered when I made that screen shot was "jokes lines" intended for timing purposes as I didn't have a accurate translation.)

    Shutting - If you really have an issue with Serebii on his site. You should look at this section: http://www.serebiiforums.com/forumdi...net-Discussion or PM Serebii directly.

    Plus, Japanese events can have pokemon that have special moves/abilities and battlers who don't have the game/don't do wifi/don't have a Japanese game can still use this information to make new sets and make new ideas for pokemon sets. It isn't necessary, but neither are other things on the site, like the POTW, but it add to the site making it better. What if someone wanted to see if something was hacked and it was a Japanese event only and it wasn't put on here?

    How ironic, you posted a thread asking whether it is necessary to know Japanese events or not.........without thinking whether the thread itself is necessary or not.

    Very sure one of the threads in Serebii.net Discussion would fit the question




    Also, you're really underestimating the number of people who has access to Japanese events.

    Many people bought the Japanese game just to see various things before anyone else, or to make it easier to get Pokemon for MM-ing. People who make guides also usually use the Japanese game, so that they'll already have a guide up by the time the English version of the game becomes available.





    and......Nutter forgot to shut the thread down, so I'll do it

    My shinies. Just click the links~

    My shinies are not for trade or cloning.
    Shinies are not listed in order, for example the last shiny on the banner is not always the latest shiny I've obtained.
    Banner 1 made by Light Venusaur, thanks ^_^
