I just hate having to ask for a code lol.

In Gen 5, I would just pass a GS, open my DS, and just download without entering the store.

Also nice that there's an upfront release calendar.

That's the only way to get Shiny Manaphy though.

Correct me if I'm wrong, but with these distributions isn't it now possible to get every single Pokémon legally in just XYORAS? No need to transfer from the GBA or DS games?

Yep all 720, 721 when Volcanion the event happens, are now obtainable within the game.

Lol, of course the one that I actually want (Meloetta) is the last one to get released. Well I suppose at least it'll finally be possible to get a Kalos native one.

It's just the event Pokémon, barring Deoxys, that can't found in either X/Y or OR/AS.

Yes, all 721 Pokemon should be available with the pentagon now after these and Volcanion are distributed.

I'm happy I get all these pokemon (once Europe details are out) but I'm sad that there won't be that sense of community.
I remember making my dad take me to toys r us when I was about 8-9, before the release of Diamond to get mew in fire red and there was this big tent which had loads of people queuing outside it and although I was super young, I felt like I was actually part of something.

I've transferred my Mew through every game since and still have it <3

I pray this means I can go into EB Games and get the code up in Canada.

I hate that they never acknowledge the second largest land mass country just north of the continental US and leave the rest of us guessing. Like hell I want to drive 7 hours to Barfalo, NY for a Mew. Seriously, just type a slash and like ten extra keystrokes so Canadian fans can breathe a little easier knowing we won't have to jump through hoops like we did for the original Mew event on Pokemon Red.

I wouldn't worry, Canada always gets the codes through EB Games. Hoopa was different because it was only distributed through wifi at a specific location and even then it was easy to get.

I would hope this all applies to NA since our games are the same region but I don't know about the store based ones. They didn't give a shit about Canada when it came for Hoopa

Most mythicals have no hidden abilities. I can't think of one honestly.

But most regular Pokemon with hidden abilities are available via ORAS/XY. The Legendary Beast/Birds are missing, though.

The first Pokemon ranger, the manaphy egg is on the cartridge, but it's one per cart.

Unless you have a way to factory delete the save, since wiping the save only overwrites it.

I remember when these had actual encounters instead of being handed out on a silver platter.

Everything post-Victini has been downhill. I miss when they were taken into account when world building like with the moon island storyline.

I don't think the 3D transition helped either. They would need to create more assets for those events and being 3D, more time consuming.

That was really awesome back in the days. The Lugia/Ho-Oh and Deoxys island were hype as hell.

That's not what he means. He means there isn't a dedicated area where you find and catch the Pokemon, which was true for the Mythicals in past games.

Downloadable catching events would have been 1000x better, but I guess the whole idea of a mythical is 'a shiny and rather useless bauble you get handed for being in the right place at the right time' so I suppose this is in the correct spirit.

Yeah. One of my all time favorite Pokemon memories is the sheer tension and excitement I felt climbing the stairs to the Hall of Origin and initiating the fight with Arceus.

And that didn't even get officially distributed lol. Really stupid decision. This "mailman gives you a mythical Pokemon just because" bullshit is so lame.

100% of Pokemon were obtainable before Emerald was released (in Japan). So it doesn't guarantee a new generation.

In the past EBGames eventually got the codes, but after the last event with Hoopa skipping Canada entirely who knows.
