Thanks for pointing those out! Note that since the article is over a week old, it won't be updated, but it is useful to have in the thread here.Two things I want to point out on the official ORAS website--
Emphasis added. So it seems like the Eon Ticket may be available through means other than StreetPass in the future. Of course this then leads to questions like how far into the future and what do these other distribution methods look like, but at least we know TPCi is at least thinking of other ways to distribute the Ticket. Also, should this article be updated to reflect that Eon Tickets will also be initially available at the Nintendo World Store until 14 Jan 2015? That opens up the possibilities of getting the ticket more for other people, even if only by a little, so I think it would be worthwhile to mention that somewhere.
Finally, in response to a portion in this Bulbanews article, in case anyone was wondering:
Pokémon said:Note: You can share your Eon Ticket with others through StreetPass regardless of whether you received it via special code or StreetPass.
