How do you obtain these? I'm not a pokemon player but my kid is, so I'd like to get these for him. Do I just open up the game and... it's there? Do I have to claim it somehow?

Some, yes. Via mystery gift.

Some you have to trail to the shop. No idea why in 2016, but there we are.

Click on "Get instructions on how to add Mew to your game." That should help you how to do it.

The game basically takes over from there. Not to mention that the Oak's Letter event for Shaymin needed to go though a postgame-only section of Victory Road.

Yeah, it would have been cool.

Ah well I plan to buy an action replay so I will be able to do it for real.

Because good advertising partners are very helpful. A lot of kids will only know about these from seeing in the ads in Gamestop. Not all Pokemon players visit NeoGAF.

There's absolutely nothing stopping them from having codes in store and having them available via wifi too.

Eh? I've gotten a few codes from GAME and not once were they tied to any pre-orders. I just go up to the counter and ask, and they just give it to me.

No. This is a special occasion thanks to the anniversary.

No. You'll need to have someone go in and grab you a second code.

EB games has gotten the previous Gamestop events IIRC. I don't see why these would be different.

for previous gamestop events, the codes given out were single-use. idk if the gamestop policy is one card per customer, one per game, or employee discretion.

wifi events are done one per save file, but that doesn't help with mew

Codes are regionlocked. So if you have a US game you'll need a US code

No they're not if you used a cloning glitch to get them. They also hold no value to players that only collect 100% legit Pokémon.

Cloning also means they're not unique.They all have the same values which removes everything special about them when 30 other players have the same exact Pokemon.

Ok I guess there's no choice but to get 1 code here for the US copy we have access and the others from the old continent.

We didn't get Hoopa, which had nothing to do with EB Games, so now everyone is starting to believe it's going to be the norm from now on.

So far we have gotten all Gen VI events that have been distributed on GameStop in the US.

You should keep an eye on the ORAS OT as there have been multiple Gaffers giving away EU codes in the past - assuming some of the Pokemon are serial code distributions in Europe as well

I always thought the difference between legendaries and mythicals were like the pokemon that are used to sell the game like Lugia or xerneas and mythicals were low tier, still pretty big but not quite as epic pokemon like the 3 dog pokemon, mew, serebii etc. Which usually those are event pokemon .

Now if they'd do the Eon Ticket again for ORAS since I'm a bad person and missed it I'd be set.

That's true, but by never releasing a part of the game, GameFreak was almost encouraging players to cheat. You never want to do that

This pretty much, I having to resort into buying an action replay just to re access the secret Key event just so I can use Air Rotom in Pokémon Platinum.

Awesome, I have most of these pokemon already, but there are a few I missed out on over the years so it's great that there will be another opportunity to get them. Only issue with this is some of them I have to go to gamestop (or in my case eb games) for, like seriously why? Just make them all available through the Nintendo Network.
