    (I can't even say the original source. ugh) is the original source of this material, and at this point, it has not been 100% confirmed. What we do know is, a store supposedly got their kit in early and opened it, which are the images you see here. Most stores will not know until monday about this, so calling to confirm isn't going to do much for us. I've got a few friends who work for gamestop, and I'm trying to do a bit of digging. But I figured you guys might want to know of this news!


    Edit: This is 100% TRUE! I confirmed it with my friend who is a manager at a gamestop!

    I asked the Guys at are Gamestop if they were going to hold the Event, or even heard of it for that matter. The Guy said they don't have a Nintendo Rep anymore, and that there system for doing the event, meaning the Nintendo Download device is destroyed. So they can't do it even if it is gonna happen. So i have to travel to the nearest Gamestop store that will be holding the event, which is a 3 hr drive away to any of them. So now i have to find out which ones will be doing it, and see if i can afford the trip over to it.

    Oh, this is great! This means the only Pokemon left (that I couldn't easily catch) to complete my Pokedex are Ho-oh, Lugia, Jirachi, and Suicune (and the last 2 are pretty simple to obtain)

    Lol...why would I buy bad Pokemon games. the handheld ones are lackluster as it were.

    ...colosseum wasn't bad... XD wasn't either... but XD has exclusive moves for certain pokemon...

    out of the 4 you mentioned:

    Colosseum has Ho-oh and Suicune
    XD has Lugia

    ... I was just pointing out that it was easy...

    Another option would be to trade for them. Also the only way to get Jirachi was to get the Preorder disc for Colosseum.

    Sort of getting of topic, but...

    Pokemon XD was actually not that bad. You should play it, I like it a lot better than Colloseum, which is one of the hardest pokemon games in my opinion. XD is a lot easier, making its trademark pokemon Lugia easier to catch. Rent XD, you won't be sorry!

    Anyway, I have a cheated Deoxsys from someone else, so I'll throw that one out and get this one! I'm trying not to cheat, although all the other people at my league think it's ok. SILLY RABBIT, CHEATING IS FOR KIDS!

    I don't really like the Pokemon games. The handheld ones are pretty fun and it's much easier for me to play handheld games than console ones just how availability works. and I'm not willing to pay moniz only for the reason of completing the pokedex

    It looks believable. I mean, without cheating, it was(and still is) nearly impossible to get a Deoxys.(space center ones aren't exactly common) An event like this to give those who don't live in Texas a Deoxys is concievable. My only question is: why are there 2 seperate time frames for it?

    To give people Multiple chances of getting to an event. Not everyone has a Gamestop, or can attend one. Some people need to plan ahead to attend one. I for one have a Gamestop, but was told they won't be doing the event seeing as how there download system is smashed and they have no Nintendo Rep. So for me i have to try and plan a trip to the nearest one which is about a 3 hr drive. And with gas prices like they are, that's not going to be cheap. So this will give me time to gather funds to attend one event.

    Because one of the weeks is during nats and I doubt any TCG player will choose getting a Deoxys over going to the Nat'l Champs. Also GameStop probably needs the traffic more than TRU does

    I called my local Gamestop and they told me the 16th...
    Plus they might let me mess with the devolpers cart I hope...
    (Toys R Us did for the Darkrai Event)

    Why Deoxys? We want Shaymin and Arceus!

    Colosseum and XD were awesome. C was probably the most challenging Pokemon game ever made.
