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)

Events

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

http://bulbapedia.bulbagarden.net/wiki/List_of_Nintendo_event_Pok%C3%A9mon_in_2010 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)
http://www.game.co.uk/lowdown.aspx?lid=13168&cm_sp=pokemon-_-topnav-_-participatingstores Ok, UK Arceus has been announced, can someone with persmission edit this in? Parallel

HELLO?!

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)

edit

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)

The date on this event is wrong. It says that it starts on the 27th but the official site says it starts on the 21st. http://www.pokemongoldsilver.com/us/#/news/celebi And I quote,"For a limited time, get the Time Travel Pokemon Celebi via the character distribution event. Stop by the Pokemon Black Version & White Version Tour as it travels across the nation beginning February 5th, or vist Gamestop stores starting on February 21st." - unsigned comment from Franco Castaneda (talkcontribs)

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)
Tc, the one was actually the World Hobby Fair Zoroark.--immewnitythemew 14:35, 16 January 2011 (UTC)

Entei Event

Sorry to be a bother, but the Entei event has been over for a week. Also the Suicune, Pikachu, and Satoshi's Zuruggu are now active.--Landon Uri 14:03, 31 January 2011 (UTC)

Thanks for the heads up, it's updated now. ♫♪AdyNiz♪♫ 15:19, 31 January 2011 (UTC)

English Wi Fi Crown Beast

Should someone add them to the "Upcoming" section? Bttsstewart 13:18, 2 February 2011 (UTC)

Second. --HyperJerk 20:37, 3 February 2011 (UTC)
I do not know if it will help but Serebii.net lists the Beasts as being available on Wifi. Raikou is from Monday February 7th-13th, Entei will be February 14th-20th, and Suicune will be from February 21st-27th 011284mm 22:26, 4 February 2011 (UTC)
Sorry that it took so long to add, but the dates were yet to be confirmed.--immewnitythemew 16:03, 7 February 2011 (UTC)

US Victini

US gets a Liberty Ticket over wi-fi from 6th March till 10th April. I've heard somewhere that Europe gets the wi-fi event for the same dates, but can not find confirmation of that. Iralie 14:58, 8 February 2011 (UTC) The dates for this have been confirmed. http://www.nintendo.com/whatsnew/detail/vmoPQzY6Yq_6DGwd0x_t22e5KvX8_6yJ March 6th to April 10th.

The UK dates for the Victini Liberty Ticket release will be March 4th - April 22nd, and it will be available over WiFi. I got this from the UK Black and white site, http://www.pokemonblackwhite.com/en-gb/pokemon/special-encounters/ 011284mm 20:23, 12 February 2011 (UTC)

Feb. 13 Entei?

I was going to download Raikou to my game and Entei is what I got, but Entei shouldn't have started yet because its not the 14th yet. Any suggestions?
