Maybe not much for those of us situated, but 2,500 to get in + several thousand to get a decent amount of Balls and useful items = helpful to have something that takes off some of that cost, especially for people struggling to get money in order to afford their first few Items and EMs.
Also guys, I'm probably going to be a little inactive over the next week or so. Recently my eyes have been giving me issues (going out of focus, hurting all day, stinging if I open them too wide), so other than the occasional post here and there and a little time on AIM, I'm going to not be around too much. I'm probably gonna see an optometrist on Wednesday after I get paid to find out what's wrong; the main reason I'm not getting on so much is to try and rest my eyes as much as I can. I already spend 8 hours a day on the computer for work, so yeah.
