Mythical Pokemon being distributed throughout 2016

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?

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

Are all hidden abilities obtainable in the 6th gen? There's probably a few stragglers of those left as fifth gen only, right?
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.

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.
The only ones I can think of are the Regis and Legendary beasts.
In terms of actually getting them? You remember the regis are standard in ORAS, right?

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.

man they're just giving them away

there should be in game events to capture these guys, and the mystery gift just allows you to access them. like the faraway island in pokemon emerald.
That was really awesome back in the days. The Lugia/Ho-Oh and Deoxys island were hype as hell.

Mythical Pokemon are lame as hell, but at least people will be able to get them now.

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.
