    Meanwhile, outside of Japan…

  • 하세요

    Meanwhile, everywhere else finally got an event that wasn’t the initial Torchic. Yay!

    • Robert Hendrie

      Worldwide there have been many non wifi giveaways.

  • Robert Hendrie

    Damn didn’t think they would finally give a shiny Jirachi for Tanabata this year, I thought it was just going to be a normal one like always. I must get my digital hands on this

  • Aaron K Stone

    Dammit. I still need one and a Meloetta to complete the non-Kalos dex.

    • Nagi

      i missed some events and i am so jell for exclusive releases :d

  • AsianDude2o9

    check out the new gameboy inspired pokedex for omega ruby and alpha sapphire

    • PreyMantis

      Using that in the dark is going to be a pain. I’ll just wait for the SP version.

    • Thats actually really cool. I loved how they were always based on the handheld at the time until BW broke the trend by basing them off of Apple products.

  • Jordan Ortiz

    So I’m not able to transfer a shiny Jirachi, but Japan gets an exclusive event for one…

    • Robert Hendrie

      You can transfer it because it was impossible to have one until now without hacking

      • Jordan Ortiz

        Shiny Jirachi is obtainable through a Pokemon Colosseum bonus disc as WISHMKR. No hacking necessary, just sheer luck.

    • Kamakuma

      I got mine through though… :’o Although mine was normal from Ruby. x’D

  • Makoto Yuki

    Finally a legal shiny Jirachi yay! Oh wait… It’s only in Japan.. AGAIN

  • Exclusive events like these are the reason I will always get my a** whooped by the Japanese online. ._.

  • Jin Kisaragi

    I don’t understand why we can’t get these exclusive events outside Japan.



  • Snorlaxation

    I get that they enjoy giving these out to the people who live in the land that birthed these games but… So much envy. I’ve been playing since I was a kid. Seeing these exclusives do things to me, still make me happy, still make me wanna collect. Isn’t that enough? Or am I just underserving?

    Again, I get it. Japanese game, Japanese gifts, In JAPAN, and all that.
    Nevermind. Just complaining…

    • Aemette

      But you have a point. Is it too much to ask for them to give such gifts to everyone else in the world? These games don’t just sell in Japan so they should thank their international fans further by giving them things like this. They would be very appreciated if they did.

      And I get that some people just got Vivillon or can get Vivillon, but come on, Vivillon over Jirachi? Come on!

  • UkiyaSeed

    Let’s just hope that some Japanese dude will put this up on Wonder Trade or GTS.

    • DanijoEX ♬ the Cosmic Owl

      Don’t bother with GTS, I’ve tried it. It won’t allow you to do it over GTS.

      • Vash bane

        unfortunately that’s the case I see a lot of trainers asking for it and another certain legend

  • Nobody

    Seeing as the idiot that invented pokemon transfer disallowed WSHMKR Jirachi to be transferred to X and Y, this better come to the USA.

    Given their dislike of the any country that isn’t Japan, however, it’s unlikely.

    • LuxbeyTheMechromancer

      since when did they not let that Jirachi go through? mine went through perfectly.

  • ishyg

    Hmm might as well try to go there this year.

  • LaserVision

    I’m joining the chorus here. Since the launch of Pokemon X and Y, we’ve been given an alt color Vivillion no one cares about and a Torchic that will be rendered redundant as soon as Omega Ruby and Sapphire comes out.

    By almost any measure, that is just terrible. I felt like we had better giveaways during Gen 3, and THAT REQUIRED LINK CABLES

    • Jesiah Grant

      ^ Ive been thinking this for a while now, I remember frickin pokemon diamond and pearl got better post game stuff than x and y, i mean we got darkrai, shaymin and Arceus! and they all had a bit of story to them.

  • Gotta catch’em all! Oh wait… it’s only in Japan… *sad face*

  • And they wonder why people wanna cheat :V

  • God

    Fuck you Japan, fuck you.

  • Vash bane

    lol this explains the uproar for jirachi ive seen of late (and that other pokemon that looks like a pink rock…who some call the rock princess)
