    If I already have an American Pikachu Colored Pichu on Platinum, can or can I not also get the European Pikachu Colored Pichu?

    I love that this is happening by Wifi. It needs to happen a lot more.

    I hope to get at least one, maybe two.

    Is it an American Platinum or a European Platinum? Did you get it via trade or Wonder Card? The event will work if you have not yet gotten the specific Wonder Card and if you have the correct version of the game.

    PAL is a game publication territory. Basically it means the versions released in Europe, Australia, and various other places that fall under the PAL territory. A game that isn't from the PAL territory won't be able to download this event.

    Here is a map that shows the PAL territories:

    THAT'S GREAT FOR THEM.
    *Is Canadian*
    Seriously, this just shows that they have nothing against wi-fi for these events. So why don't they use wi-fi?! That would be awesome! When America gets wi-fi events, so does Canada, but America isn't going to get this event AGAIN, so Canada will never get it, as the rest of the freakin' world does.

    No.

    PAL is the term used for our Television format, as opposed to the NTSC that you use in America. It's actually completely incorrect to refer to these games as 'PAL' versions as they are not, in any way, shape or form, related to televisions. The only types of games that can have PAL versions are console games - and even that is pretty obsolete as PAL conversion in games was typically just reducing the frequency from 60Hz to 50Hz. A practice that is no longer necessary - or even used all that often on today's systems.

    Also, I'm fairly certain Australia isn't included in these European events - despite being a 'PAL' region - so it's just plain confusing to be using the term here, never mind the fact it's simply doesn't apply.

    I see. Thanks for the correction on the whole PAL matter.

    So, I guess the download would be just for the European versions of DPPt.

    I'm conflicted because for once they are being good and having it distributed over wifi, but they didn't bother to do anything for Canadians :/

    It at least makes me hopeful that future events will all be wifi. At least this means that there may be more PCP out for trade.

    Hmmm, I got the European Version (Spanish) of Pokémon Diamond, and thought it would work, but it didn't! I don't know why, because the japanese wi-fi events just need you to have the japanese game, and I could get The 10th Anniversary Mew and I'm not in Japan, so what happened this time?

    Thanks Atara :3
