well i'm not going on a 2 hour train journey to get to the closest game store just for these

they should just make them available to everyone via Wi-Fi and let us catch them up until the end date and then they are gone for good

On one hand, I'm going to a store just to get a shiny pokemon... On the other hand, chances are this will be a great way to get some street passes!

Because making a Wi-Fi event would be too easy for those who live outside the US, Canada and UK, right?

I'll pass, my only shiny Pokemon I ever had was that Red Gyarados in Gold/Silver version and that's good enough for me.

Gameshark/Action Replay is your best friend for this.

 I hate that they do these events like this.
People dont want to go in to a Gamestop / EB Games / Game, just to recieve Pokemon.
It would be so much better if they just released these Pokemon over the Wi-Fi event wonder cards.

@rushiosan it's to attract visitors to the store itself so employees can sell product to those visitors who may not have come otherwise. Mainly to sell x and y pre-orders I imagine.

@GH05T-666 It's so you can pre-order X or/and Y while you are there getting the pokemon.

@wexorian You were able to get him normally through the Pokemon Black/White Download Gift Promotion.

They cycle through various pokemons throughout every month or so. Till Nintendo wants to do something like THIS and then you gotta wait longer for free pokemons :p
