Here's hoping for non-code Hoopa event in the future. I really wish they would drop this ineffective distribution method.

THIS

I mean, at least some countries can get them in game stores, but in the Netherlands you can only get it at an event! I'm lucky enough I was actually at that event, but not everyone is able to travel to Utrecht and it isn't excactly cheap to get in either. It really sucks for those who couldn't be there if this is the only way you'll be able to get a Hoopa.

Re: Hoopa events announced for Europe and North America: Serial codes to be available

I got so excited to hear this...until I clicked on the link of the article and saw it was serial codes only. D: Oh well, I'll continue waiting for an online event, but still, it disappoints me a little.

I completely agree. Australia needs more events.

I assume this means we'll be getting the movie soon, too.

Serial codes again?

ಠ_ಠ

C'mon, Game Freak, you had my trust already with the last distributions being given out via Wi-Fi, you're coming close to breaking it again.

Nintendo would probably be the ones in charge of organising events, rather than the game developers...

I've noticed that they tend to have a serial code event first, and then the same event for Wi-Fi months later, so I think it's just a case of retail stores getting the rights to be first on hosting events, as they potentially turn a profit that way.

However it's being distributed, I'm just glad we finally have a chance to get the Pokémon. It's been two years since XY was released, and we've known about Hoopa and Volcanion almost that entire time. No wonder people hack the games.

I guess Volcanion will be given to us next year with Gen VII in 2017.

Yeah. I'm acutely aware that I'm lucky enough to be able to simply walk down the road for a serial code ... but it would be nice to get the events actually within their own generation.

They're going to release Volcanion before Gen VII. Besides, all signs point to Z being released next year (most notably, but not exclusively, the new anime subseries XY & Z), and we're incredibly unlikely t get both Z and Gen VII next year.
