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)

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. 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 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. 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, 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? - unsigned comment from Dalton358 (talkcontribs)

Probably related to timezones. --SnorlaxMonster 06:53, 14 February 2011 (UTC)

Canadian Ash's Pikachu?

The dates for the Canadian offer overlap and is later than the US offer, why is this not on there? I would put it in myself, but I can't. Dates is already confirmed. I don't see what the problem could possibly be.--Mondoblasto 19:53, 17 February 2011 (UTC)

Done. With all the events going on right now, it apparently got overlooked. George Hutcheon 20:02, 17 February 2011 (UTC)
Cool, thanks! ^^--Mondoblasto 04:45, 18 February 2011 (UTC)

US Celebi wrong Event end date

I left a similar message on the front pages talk page but since I can leave one here to I though this would be better. The US Celebi event ends March 6th not March 7th I cannot change it however since I believe you have to be an auto confirmed user to edit this article. Could someone please change it for me.--Marchbaby 14:58, 22 February 2011 (UTC)


The searcher Axew event is over. I'd like for you guys to remove it to keep up with the high standerds of Bulbapedia. Thank you. DRBROCK 21:11, 17 May 2011 (UTC) DrBrock

Also, the Eeveelutions event for International users is over, could someone please fix that? I kinda depend on this page so I know what events are happening when, I wish we could find someone to update this more often... Sukineko123 16:43, 11 August 2011 (UTC)

Can You Put The GL Events On The Front Page

Thank You. - unsigned comment from DrBrock (talkcontribs)

They'll be there soon. Until then, have a look at this page. —darklordtrom 22:05, 19 May 2011 (UTC)
They may not be (at least for the duration of the Eevee promotion). I'll just leave a note on the front page. People complained long ago when the list got too long, so upcoming events were left on the "/event" page. tc²₆tc26 01:01, 20 May 2011 (UTC)

Eeveelution Minigame end date

The Global Link website marks the promotion for receiving the previously-won Eeveelution as ending on July 19. - Saethori 23:29, 19 May 2011 (UTC)

Fixed. Thanks.--RexRacer 17:00, 11 August 2011 (UTC)

Victini event

If I'm correct, the North American (or International? Not sure) Victini event starts tomorrow/today (depending on your time zone), but isn't in the upcoming nor current events. --BaileyPlaysPokemon 06:09, 3 December 2011 (UTC)

Still need this event up there. --BaileyPlaysPokemon 22:18, 6 December 2011 (UTC)
Added. Looks like it is for Europe and NA. ♫♪AdyNiz♪♫ 03:04, 7 December 2011 (UTC)

Resiram/Zekrom event

It says Zekrom when it should say Reshiram in 2 of them. --Juzey 08:36, 15 March 2012 (UTC)


I believe this line in the source

{{event/wifi|494|Movie 14 Vicini|n=Movie 14<br>Victini|year=2012|June|12|June|26|EN|BW}}

should be

{{event/wifi|494|English Movie Victini|n=Movie 14<br>Victini|year=2012|June|12|June|26|EN|BW}}

(highlighted the change)
It's under the 'Wi-Fi' heading. GoldenCelebi (talk) 17:12, 12 June 2012 (UTC)

Thanks! :-) GoldenCelebi (talk) 18:14, 12 June 2012 (UTC)

Comment not commented

The comment in Wi-Fi → Upcoming ('Please confirm for PAL games') is surrounded with <!- and -> instead of <!-- and -->, so it actually shows up in the table.

Oh, and the Porygon at the very bottom of the list is available in Europe now, although the password source is Eurogamer, not IGN. GoldenCelebi (talk) 08:19, 22 July 2012 (UTC)

GL Porygon

It claims that the global link Porygon is only for NA/Aus/NZ accounts however this is not so because I have a UK account and I was able to get it Jmvb (talk) 23:30, 29 August 2012 (UTC)

The UK Porygon started two or three days later than the NA one, if that helps. GoldenCelebi (talk) 09:36, 31 August 2012 (UTC)
And it was from Poké, not IGN. GoldenCelebi (talk) 16:46, 3 September 2012 (UTC)

Other events

Is it worth including things like C-Gear skins and other Global Link events? - signed comment from GoldenCelebi (pedia talknews talkarchives talk) 18:13, 15 September 2012 (UTC)

XY languages

Are you sure the Blazikenite Torchic event won't apply to the Korean versions? Because this is the first time a single game has all the languages (that can be selected at the beginning), so I was wondering... TheOriginalOne 16:14, 11 August 2013 (UTC)

At this time there isn't confirmation of the event. Neither Mega Blaziken nor Torchic are mentioned on the official site just yet. Once it is confirmed, then it will be added. G50 16:36, 11 August 2013 (UTC)
Yeah, I was confused because altough I hadn't seen that info on the site, I saw all those unconfirmed languages there: so you just added them because they tend to be the most choosen ones, right? TheOriginalOne 18:57, 11 August 2013 (UTC)
The other languages I was able to check on, since each has its own page on the website. G50 22:45, 11 August 2013 (UTC)

New events

I know new events will be coming, will you add new events and remove older events. thank you! Cinday123 (talk) 05:06, 4 December 2013 (UTC)

South Korean event

Because the South Korean event has already ended, could someone remove this? --Cinday123 (talk) 11:19, 25 February 2014 (UTC)


Is there really, as the table suggests, only one possible language per country in the Magmar and Electabuzz event? Is it true that, if I am in Portugal and my game is in English, I can't receive the gift? If, as I think, the answer is "no" (other pairs, like "Belgium-English" don't seem to make much sense, just to add to the fact that Spanish isn't an official language of Portugal), could someone please correct it, by putting the country in the column of the right? Because right now it's very confusing. オリナル TheOriginalOne 15:38, 8 April 2014 (UTC)

The events are Location/Region-based, so you can ignore the languages since the template isn't made for Serial codes just yet. We hope to have it fixed soon, sorry about the confusion. --Pokemaster97 20:04, 8 April 2014 (UTC)

Scizor/Garchomp serial codes

It's good that the new Vivillion distribution was added swiftly, but June 30th was 8 days ago, which means the NA Walmart serial code-based distributions are over. --KommanderAwesome (talk) 22:52, 7 July 2014 (UTC)


Not sure if anyone will see this, but the Diancie event needs to be moved from Upcoming to ongoing, and the Mawile, Tyranitar, and Gengar needs to be removed since the event is now over. Rikeo (talk) 12:00, 25 July 2014 (UTC)

Thanks for the heads up, the page has been updated accordingly. --Pokemaster97 03:55, 26 July 2014 (UTC)
The Hong Kong Charizards came and went as well, and the one-day distribution of Arash's Mamoswine is over. The NA Garchomp/Scizor serial distributions have ended too. Also, I think the Japanese Pokéball Vivillion, Tanabata Jirachi, and Outbreakchu Pikachu should be added to Upcoming. --KommanderAwesome (talk) 20:49, 26 July 2014 (UTC)
