    Australia to gets in-store Victini event: EB Games and Toys "R" Us to distribute ...

    While some Australians may choose to download Victini from the comfort of their own homes, an additional in-store event has been announced. It will take place at the same time as the earlier reported event.

    So does this Victini have V-Generate, or is that a different event?

    I wonder why they can get such a widespread retail distribution (not only at 1 chain of stores, but 2) for a mere key item that's already going to be given out over the more easily-accessible Wi-Fi, yet they have yet to announce a Celebi event for Australia.

    That is baffling.

    But then again, in 2009, they gave out the secret key at sylvia park here in new zealand, even though it was already available through wifi.

    ^I doubt you'll see it released before then might see it(very rarely)1-2 days before it sells but even then it's probably still a preorder only

    Was I the only one who noticed the horrible grammar error in the title?

    Because Pokemon Australia are a bunch of morons that get rich while sitting on stockpiles of stuff that the American and Japanese get while giving the fan base absolute garbage. Seriously, Pokemon Australia have worse standards to Koei and Koei have brought out six versions of the same game over a 10 year period, only update the graphics when switching consoles, and when they tried something different they royally screwed it up.

    I mean the only reason we got the Crown Beast was because they were put on the Wi-Fi for the everyone that didn't get them.

    If this is the way Pokemon Australia (or TPCI) are going to treat us, that loyal fans the put up with that not-so-great 3rd Gen games, and practically give us the same thing every Generation, I say; "Screw it, I'm not buying B&W. I'm putting my money on Dragon Age 2 or Dynasty Warriors 7".

    Argh, I'm sorry. Is it poor form to blame the earthquake?

    Also, @minimag - totally did not know that we had an actual event in Auckland. How many other in-store events have been held in New Zealand?

    I just want to point out that this is the first story I've reported for Bulbanews, and the first to make the "News" section on the Bulbapedia Main Page.

    I feel so special. :)

    WHY can we get a retail event for something that's already available over wifi, but NOT get a retail Celebi?!??! PLEASE EXPLAIN.

    It's not the first time we've had two chain stores give away the event, nor the first time we've had an event available over Wi-Fi and in-store, but it is the first time we've had both.

    This sucks, once again Austalia and rest of the world get Pokemon events, while New Zealand gets nothing, what a bunch of haters, i really wanted to get Arceus and other event stuff.

    Oh well, can;t do anything about it, so might as well suck it up and wait for Pokemon Black and White. {Sighs}
