Can we only show the on-going events? Adding the upcoming events lengthens the front page too much. Perhaps we can show the upcoming events on a different page, like what we did on upcoming episodes. Ҝəυzø8 02:54, 30 May 2009 (UTC)

Yeah. I figured out how to do it. tc26, if you want to make a page like Upcoming events, base it off of Template:Current events/1.--Mew a.k.a. Prmatt11 11:36, 30 May 2009 (UTC)

One event is out-to-date... Someone please fix it! --EricPires9 23:03, 14 October 2009 (UTC)


February 4, 2010 and I still cannot get Mew over the WFC. Is this event actuallly going on?

Are you using a Japanese HGSS game? Are you using Mystery Gift>Get via Nintendo WFC? If not, there's your issue. Else, bring it to the forums. Actually, bring it to the forums no matter what if you can't solve it.--immewnitythemew 00:41, 5 February 2010 (UTC)
Any news on if/when we'll be able to get Mew in other countries?
Nope.--immewnitythemew 12:54, 9 February 2010 (UTC)

Argh, I'm really lost and a brand new poster (as should be obvious), but I've got something really potentially relevant to this article and I just wanted to make sure everyone knew. Today at Gamestop I was told there is to be a Jirachi event that hasn't been revealed, which is to start the day the shiny Pichu event ends. No idea where to put this or how to format it, I'll leave that to someone more qualified. Drellus 01:58, 6 February 2010 (UTC)

I'm working on an article right now!--immewnitythemew 02:20, 6 February 2010 (UTC)

Links to US events

The North American/USA events are linked to Japanese events from last year. Can they please link to the correct event Pokémon? Thanks! Jazzmoth 15:09, 16 February 2010 (UTC)

Arceus Shouldn't the Arceus being distributed in most of Europe be on this? Parallel

I'd say so, but I truly have no idea how to do this one. Ask tc26; he made Events and knows the formatting. I've gotten it wrong before.--immewnitythemew 01:24, 24 February 2010 (UTC) Ok, UK Arceus has been announced, can someone with persmission edit this in? Parallel


I don't know how to do this, but some events were put on Upcoming side, AND IT'S ALREADY HAPPENING!!! (Sorry, but capital letters always grabs people attention)--The Bulb's Master 00:22, 1 March 2010 (UTC) (I'm back!!)

Sorry for that, it hasn't been updated recently; we're way too busy to do so. Also, there's no need to capitalize for catching attentions. We're patrolling the recent changes. Thanks for the notice, Ҝəυzø8 14:15, 1 March 2010 (UTC)
That makes me wonder - would you like someone (for instance, me) to just go through and make sure the events shown are current and make the necessary changes? I look at the page frequently enough as is; a little coding would be fun and it would lighten your load. ;) Jazzmoth 00:25, 2 March 2010 (UTC)
I'd like it, as you are a good user, and the part is... dying. But we can't make you Writer. Hmm, what to do, what to do...--immewnitythemew 22:08, 7 March 2010 (UTC)
Make more edits. TTEchidna 00:18, 8 March 2010 (UTC)

Pikachu-colored Pichu...

...should be added to on-going. (03/05-03/25) Jazzmoth 18:26, 9 March 2010 (UTC)

Australian Toys "R" Us Jirachi

Shouldn't the Australian Toys "R" Us Jirachi be listed under "upcoming"? It goes from June 3rd to 13th, 2010. Or is this just for Wi-Fi events? Bttsstewart 08:06, 27 May 2010 (UTC)

Removal of outdated events

The Crown Legendary Beasts and 7-Eleven Pikachu events have ended. They should be removed from the "Ongoing" section. Phantomjunkie 02:27, 8 September 2010 (UTC)


Japanese B&W release is history, liberty ticket is ongoing, and while you're on it, Australian PokéPark Wii release is tomorrow, so that should soon be updated too. ^^ --BlackySully 19:33, 22 September 2010 (UTC)

Page is outdated

Croagunk, Kumasyun and all the Eevee evolutions' events are active now. Bluesun 03:27, 22 October 2010 (UTC)

Croagunk, Eeveelutions and now Arceus are missing. Bluesun 13:18, 9 November 2010 (UTC)
Help me out guys, what exactly do we need to update/add, make sure to provide relavant links on BP! Thanks. Jello 20:32, 6 December 2010 (UTC)

BW release date announced

Nintendo announced that Black and White will be released on March 6, 2011, so the North America release date doesn't have to be the vague "Spring 2011" anymore on the table. Titoxd(?!?) 00:05, 28 December 2010 (UTC)

Done. --Psyライダー 05:40, 28 December 2010 (UTC)

Celebi Event?

The upcoming Celebi event should be added. Chum 03:16, 9 January 2011 (UTC)

Added.--immewnitythemew 13:44, 9 January 2011 (UTC)

Zoroark Wi-Fi Event

On this page it says the Zoroark event runs from Jan 16 to Feb 6, but when you look at the List of Nintendo event Pokemon page, it says "February 15 to March 14, 2011", so which one is correct? Furthermore, is it possible to access Japanese Wi-Fi events with a Japanese game without actually being in Japan? --RWS 01:36, 16 January 2011 (UTC)

There are two distributions with currently the same "event name." If you look below, there's another one. The one you saw here is the one in Japan only. The one you saw on Bulbapedia was the Wi-Fo one. And yes, you can access Wi-Fi events without being in the country. You just need the right game version. tc²₆tc26 06:02, 16 January 2011 (UTC)
