    Default Victini Wi-Fi Event Announced

    (Yes, I have wrote a Bulbanews article on this. Just thought I'd stimulate discussion).



    Ladies and Gents!
    Last friday's issue of MCV UK magazine revealed previously unknown information about a Victini Event plus other UK-related news. The Liberty Pass which allows access to Victini will be available over Nintendo Wi-Fi Connection from 4th March to 22nd April. There will also be a retail event as part of an advertising campaign involving Nickelodeon, CITV, Cartoon Network, and DisneyXD to help hype the release of the games, although the contents of said event or any giveaways are currently unknown.

    The Venues have been named, but dates are currently unknown:

    Westfield, London
    Silverburn Shopping Centre, South Glasgow
    Metrocentre, Newcastle
    Bullring, Birmingham
    The Centre, Milton Keynes

    Tour dates and detaills have yet to be announced.

    Details can be viewed online here (Pages 1, 2, 59, 60).

    Neat! I'm assuming this means news about Victini will be released in the US soon, too.

    I'm also assuming this is some sort of video game business magazine, from how much they talk about marketing.

    EDIT: Apparently they're also going to "take over" YouTube... but how? Or is that just marketing-speak?
    EDIT2: Dedicated review campaign? Does that mean they're paying reviewers off?

    Paying reviewers off is nothing out of the ordinary at all. Most reviews that are published are paid to go either way; with negative reviews requested to make the positive ones look more genuine.

    YouTube takeover probably means some kind of capmaign, like getting it on the front page.

    Ah. I kinda knew that about the reviews, but I didn't know it was that common.

    And it would be cool to see it on the front page of YouTube.

    I assume that we will get news of the american Liberty Ticket event soon. Id assume it would start the 6th of March when the game starts selling.

    Sweet! I can buy my game and then get Victini almost immediately.

    Probably to let people play Black and White before release, and to get Celebi.

    This will also probably be available for American games from their release.

    Hello, I just made an account to ask some questions. I am sorry if this is obvious or has already been asked but will this Victini event (throught Wi-fi) be available for people in Australia (or more specifically, New Zealand) to download?

    Thanks

    If you've got an English game, yes, it should be.

    Thats the way they did it for Japan. It looks like they are doing the same thing for other countries' games. You dont even need a Pokedex to obtain Mystery Gifts, I think you need only a save file.

    Yeah, but you can't access Victini until you reach Castelia City.

    Cool I can open both black and white to get the ticket for both games. However, with his infamous catch rate of 3 I'm going to be pissed off while trying to catch him.
