    Hope they make triggered events free downloadable DLC, that either stay in the eShop forever or at least on my system for as long as it lasts. I'm fine with giveaway Pokémon though.

    I prefer in-game events but they seem to prefer distributions nowadays.

    But if we DO get an event, I want to see an in-game Deoxys and Jirachi events - or even a Manaphy, since hoenn's waters are suitable for Manaphy to thrive.

    Default Events in ORAS - how do you want them to work?

    While I never got to play Ruby and Sapphire, I have a copy of Emerald and liked the fact that it has numerous event locations where Pokémon such as Mew and Deoxys were available. In Platinum too, I loved being able to go to Newmoon Island and actually catch Darkrai rather than having it handed to you in a Cherish Ball.
    That now seems to be how events work - the delivery man giving you the Pokémon itself rather than any event item allowing you to catch it. I preferred the old method since it felt more rewarding to actually go and catch the Pokémon yourself. It also feels like more of an adventure to go to interesting event locations that you couldn't normally visit.

    Seeing as these are remakes... do you want places like Navel Rock to come back, or just get the Pokémon from the event?

    THIS. I always wished I could've done one of those item-related events. Never have taken part in one, and all my events came by mailman. I want a true special "event", not a random delivery guy!

    If there are Event Pokemon in ORAS, I want to be able to catch them. I'm not necessarily tired of just being handed Pokemon, but I am more tired of not being able to nickname them. Perhaps my thoughts would be different if I could nickname gift Pokemon, but, in thinking about it, I really do enjoy catching Legendaries and I don't like that they've gone away from that in favor of just having a random delivery person just casually handing you a Legendary Pokemon. So, if we get any events, can we just please catch them? Or at least be allowed to nickname them?

    I'd forgotten all about that, actually, I had enjoyed being able to nickname event Pokémon. On the other hand though I remember being able to nickname some of the ones that just get handed to you too.

    The only Legendary Pokemon that gets handed to you that you can nickname that I know of is the PokeBank Celebi. All of the other ones have different OTs. I personally never understood that in the first place. I'm getting handed a Pokemon that didn't even belong to another trainer, so why can I not nickname it?

    Catching them is fun. DPPt did it right, foreshadowing the events in-game and then releasing them after.

    I don't think it's intentional that you can't nickname them, but that it's a side effect of them having a different OT that Gamefreak never really took into account during development. Still, they should have some sort of list of OTs that you can change nicknames for.

    DLC allows for events to be added after development though, so while it was an issue back then it shouldn't be a problem now.

    It is understandable, but I don't see why they couldn't let the Pokemon get our OT when we get it. Honestly, what kind of OT is Toys R Us that prevents me from being able to nickname my Pokemon? I'd like that if they have to just give us the Pokemon, they do allow us to change the name for those Pokemon. But, overall, I would like to just go back to catching them. It would just be easier.

    True, but we still don't know to what degree Game Freak is using DLC this generation, so they may not consider it to be a good solution.
