    Why does the article say Toys 'R' U?

    Ugh, I thought Nintendo was finally over with the T'RUS events. U___U; Do they just not realize how massively inconvenient it is for most people??

    Hopefully they'll do a WiFi event in a few months. (maybe close to HG/SS's release in the States so that people will be able to activate the Shinto Ruins event)

    Thanks Nintendo. I've been meaning to take a 40 minute drive down to South Portland so I can download a tiny bit of 1s and 0s for the game that I've been able to get DLC for over Wi-Fi the last two times you decided to give away event items.

    /sarcasm

    This annoys me. How can there be a deal with TRU to not distribute this online? They gave away Shaymin and Darkrai over Wi-Fi, why not Arceus? Come on. Besides, I just went to South Portland a week ago. I'm not going back there again any time soon.

    Well, to be fair, they just gave you the item to fight and capture Darkrai and Shaymin over Wi-fi, but they were still distributed at TRU with a special movepool way before their respective events. Even in Japan, since these are basically the same Pokemon that you get for going to the movies, but in English.

    Besides, I don't think Japan has gotten the Azure Flute legally anyway, and from the pattern of all those other Item events, they need to do that first before distributing it over Wi-Fi in other countries.

    Exactly what I was about to say, and also the only pokemon to be distributed over Wifi didn't have an in-game event. I suppose another thing is in Japan it wasn't over Wifi, and the main reason for it not being now is that as Arceus is a really rare and powerful pokemon, they want to make sure players with just DP get it too without having to deal with the whole "No DP Wifi Events" thing..

    So what's stopping them though? Does Japan have to have EVERYTHING first? Because they got Arceus first--why can't other parts of the world get the Azure Flute? Or moreover, they can't have Arceus itself downloaded directly?

    What swampert rox said. I thought maybe the event would be both in store and over wi-fi so that it would be fair to people with only Diamond or Pearl. As for the Azure Flute, I'm sure it'll be available eventually, probably over wi-fi, right?

    I actually just got hired at Toys R Us, so I'm rather excited about this.

    Alright, I would first like to begin by saying that I'm annoyed by the people that are "annoyed" by having to travel a short amount of time (You either want it or you don't; if you don't want to travel for it, you don't want it very bad, then.) to a Toys 'R' Us. Most people, not just on the Internet I mean, don't have Wi-Fi access. Wi-Fi actually annoys me more than anything since it seems to be more complicated than it really needs to be. It is indefinitely easier to drive a relatively short amount of time (Those who complain about "having" to do it are rather lazy, IYAM.) to get an event, IMPO, than to get an event over Wi-Fi. As one without it, I have missed the Member's Pass and the Oak's Letter, and quite frankly, I'm irritated by this. I would also like to mention that this is coming from someone who never made it to ANY of the Pokemon Rocks America events (i.e. Celebi, Aurora Ticket, Mystic Ticket, etc.), due to distance.

    It is purely a matter of opinion, and you have heard mine.

    On another note, has there been any word that this will be the Japanese Eigakan Arceus?

    Darach, some of us, like me, don't have a Toy's R Us around them. And some of us don't have a method of getting there. I'd go if I could, but I physically can't.

    And the same can be said for those that aren't capable of wireless fidelity.

    I'm merely pointing out something for those that don't have Wi-Fi as it seems like people, in this regard, are steadily forgetting what it was like to not have Internet anywhere.

    Contrary to what might be understandably believed, I'm not trying to start an argument.

    Huh. Is that what Wi-Fi is short for? Always wondered.

    Anyways, I'm confused, is this just for an English version of the Movie12 Arceus, the Azure Flute, or a new Arceus all together? The article doesn't really specify.

    Also, how exactly do TRU Mystery Gifts work? I've never been to one before, but an Event Arceus would be great trade-bait, so I might hit this up. Do you just have to activate the MG function within the TRU? Or do they have a person giving them out or something?
