    If this follows the pattern of other event-unlocking Pokemon that've been released in non-JP/US regions late enough so that the game they unlock stuff in has already come out, the odds are it will be downloadable to any Gen IV game, unlike the US and JP distributions which were limited to D/P/Pt.

    New Zealand misses out again! I was so pissed about arceus! Couldn't they do a wi-fi event again?!

    I wish I lived closer to a Toys "R" Us...

    Maybe I can get my mum to drive me there.

    Being that HG is my first Gen 4 game, it kind of sucks that all the events happened during the release of d/p/pt.

    There's only about a dozen Toys R Us stores nation wide, IIRC. A bit frustrating for many, I'd imagine.

    Sigh, another event I/we miss out on.
    When will Nintendo wake up and do the right thing, by providing everyone with the download, not only the Australians.


    Thanks.

    As much as I want to blame someone, it isn't Nintendo's doing... they don't directly control any of the event giveaways. It's The Pokemon Company International that organizes these events. From what I've heard, they offer the events to Canadian retailers (TRU, Gamestop/EB Games) at the same time they do their American counterparts. The Canadian retailers have simply chosen, almost always, not to participate.

    The one exception was when TRU gave out the Secret Key for Platinum... for whatever reason, Canadian TRUs participated in that. Kind of a bonehead move, though, if they were trying to gauge how popular event giveaways could possibly be for the future... the Secret Key was released like a day or two later over Wi-Fi, so I don't see why anyone would've bothered driving out to a TRU.

    This is pretty cool, there's a Toys R Us near where I live, if they have it there I can go there and get it, maybe on HG/SS/D/P/P if possible.
    My RP Character's Pokemon! Click to feed them! Each of their Signature Pokemon in Order:
    Kathany, Amber, Piper, Kate, Zoey and Lane.

    I very much hope this is available to HG/SS. The closest Toys 'R' Us store is about an hours drive away from me, but it's probably worse for others so I'm not complaining. Still, there has to be a better, more widespread store for them to use.
