Japan gets all the good events - shiny Golurk and Hydreigon, shiny Rayquaza, shiny Magicarp. Apparently players who don't live in Japan are not worthy of those Pokemon.

Lol, I love how redundant they made it by giving it Hydro Pump, a move it learns through evolution anyway.

Pokemon is most popular in Japan and marketed there.

Also, I'm pretty sure America gets a lot of these events as well.

I live in Europe, and no the rest of the world gets very few events compared to Japan. I don't care if Pokemon is more popular there, they should stop negleting international fans so much.

Maybe some people don't want to evolve their shiny Magikarp. Just saying. :p
