Thanks! They are pretty interesting but pretty underwhelming. If they were to do these events as DLC next time, I hope they put in a little of story telling into it.For Shaymin, after you get the Oak's Letter you go to Rt. 224 where you find Prof. Oak. He tells you the white rock there responds to feelings of gratitude and asks you to write the name of who you're most thankful for. When you do, it opens a path to Flower Paradise where you can catch Shaymin.
For Arceus, you go to Spear Pillar with the Azure Flute and then when you step on this one tile near the entrance it prompts you to play the Azure Flute. When you do, a set of stairs appears and takes you to a new area high above Spear Pillar called Hall of Origin where you can catch Arceus.
None of the 4th gen events were really much of anything special, you get a Macguffin to trigger the event, a short sequence happens that opens up a small area with the event legendary. There's real potential to expand on this with DLC though, all of these events tie into other parts of the story and they could turn then into full story arcs. Darkrai could be a direct antagonist causing nightmares in Canalave City. Marley could be more involved in the Shaymin event. Arceus could get involved with Dialga/Palkia/Giratina's affairs and end up being a target of Team Galactic. They can really make these events into something more.
