Many thanks to the Hero of Legend for giving me a code. :)

I'll just hand out my Italian code for anyone interested since it's incompatible with U.S. copies.

If anyone has a U.S. code left to spare, I'd be incredibly grateful. I have no other way of getting one as I'm currently studying abroad.

Going to hope I can get my bro to stop at GameStop for me this weekend. My campus is nowhere near a GameStop and I have no car.

Better that than the shortages the US has had due to distribution of physical cards though.

You have my heartfelt thanks! Just grabbed the code.
I will still have my family over in Italy attempt to get a code or two and I will share it here if they get.

Be glad that they at least have codes. The (only) participating store in my city was out of codes on the second day >.>

Yes.

Are there any other people abroad with a NA 3ds that don't have access to a Gamestop? I'll be stopping by more Gamestops this weekend and will try to get more codes.

Big props to DR2K, I got my Mew!

Back in the day, I had a Game Genie Mew on my Red file, but missed every opportunity since then to ever get one that I could actually hang on to and transfer from game to game. Been waiting for my chance nearly a decade. This is so awesome!

Thanks again DR2K!

No problem! I'm glad to hear my visit didn't go to waste. Since I'll be in Rome for the next few months, I may make a few visits to grab the different codes for anyone that needs them.

I am soo glad we are past that in Germany. Every Gamestop gets 100-200 codes at first and can always order me. We never ran out of codes with Hoopa so I hope it will be the same with Mew.

It really sucks being left out of events like these. We have no choice but to wait for some kind people to share codes with us.

And to the poster above me, whats the difference between a cloned Pokemon? It's there a way to identify a cloned Pokemon?

Cloned Pokémon are exact copies of the original. From Bulbapedia:

The cloning glitch in Generation VI works [...] by breaking off a trade between two nearby Nintendo 3DS systems connected via infrared connection. Depending on the timing, the first Pokémon may be cloned, the trade may complete, or the Pokémon will be erased. However, the chance of a Pokémon being erased is small and this method is not known to pose any harm to the player's save data.

Which means technically you end up with two clones and not one clone and one original. ;)

But my question is, have these "cloned" Pokemon been identified as such un official competitions, or there's no way to identify them as clones?

Since the pokemon is not altered in the cloning process, the only way to identify a clone is to know that there is another exact copy.
