    I wish they distributed the starters with hidden abilities, as they did in Japan.

    This event will be for Japan.

    I hope it's coming to the U.S., unless it's something random and useless.

    It could just be the same shiny Sinnoh trio that most of the other regions are already getting.

    Why did they announce that internationally first, then?

    Because other territories are getting it first?

    Given that the event's already started in America, it wouldn't make much sense for them not to have announced it yet.

    At this rate, probably not, since they're phasing everything Gen 5 related to make room for Gen 6, and with only two months until X/Y is out, it wouldn't be anything significant unless it's something like the Crown Beasts event, and even then, it's unlikely anything like that would happen at this point (especially since the Crown Beasts event was an annoying move by Nintendo in my opinion).

    I know that, but why would other territories get it before Japan is what I'm asking.

    The same logic applies in Japan, though. We're all getting XY at the same time, remember.

    Perhaps a number of reasons. The timing of the events is intended to encourage people to pre-order the games: "Come to the same store three times! And while you're here, why not pre-order?" Japan doesn't seem to have the same kind of in-store event distribution setup, and given the insane pre-order figures we've seen out of Japan so far, they evidently don't need in-store promotions to encourage them.
