Sometimes they don't even use the event ones. Arceus is still impossible to get because GameFreak is so exclusive with its events. I only recall two events for Arceus: The Japanese movie release and the one Toys R Us event that some of the stores didn't even follow.

I feel they should just stop the events entirely if they're going to make it a straight-up hassle to find a way to get one legitimately. I'm all for challenges, but at this point it's almost as bad as on-disc DLC, which is essentially what it is. (Out of the dozen or so Pokemon I don't have on my HG save, I believe more than half are Legendaries that you pretty much cannot obtain if you're late to the party. Arceus, Deoxys, Shaymin, Mew, Jirachi, Darkrai, Manaphy, and Phione are the ones that I remember off-hand. The fact that you can't request them at the GTS unless you've seen them makes it even more irritating.)

Because I'm on a different country forgotten by Nintendo and GameFreak I never got to participate in a event. Since Ruby,Sapphire,Emerald and Fire Red/Green Leaf I never got to catch a legendary that they give on those special events. I agree that GameFreak just need to stop those events and put them on a more friendly way to get them. I remember reading in some magazine that the Altering Cave in Emerald and FR/GL never got used because the event programed for that area never got realized.

That makes me think that GameFreak are afraid of the internet too, just like Nintendo in some ways. Why don't give those hard-to-get pokemons to the loyal players? I feel that this behavior is just a kick in the butt for many fans and possible buyers. :/

I have only participated in one event, which was the Celebi event for HGSS. I've tried finding the others (up to Gen IV), but it's almost impossible. Essentially you have to have a friend who either hacks the game (which I really don't like) or got them legitimately and clones them (I accept this more because it's at least a legitimate Pokemon).

I actually participated in most events and have pretty much every legendary that's been available up to this point. But I definitely agree that its freaking annoying and cheap as hell.

So I looked into Black / White 2. Went through every single pokemon in the Pokedex. In regards to appearance, I love under 10, find a dozen or so more acceptable and the rest of them are just meh. So in conclusion, I'll pick it up. But my nostalgia will probably make it hard to get into it at first. I miss my Pidgeot, Arcanine and the like. Oh ya, I have heartgold! But not my own Ds.

Life problems I tell ya.

Well, Black and White 2 have Pokemon from older gens in the wild, so it'll be bearable for any nostalgia-bearing players.

...I hate being the only one who likes the overall look of the fifth gen Pokemon around here. :(

My Arcanine in HG made me love that species as a whole. I caught it as a Growlithe (obviously) with a Pokeball first try, and thought "Oh, he must suck, I should release him." Thankfully I gave him a shot. After oneshotting Pokemon forty levels higher than it, I realized just how stupid I almost was.

Long story short, a week later he was lvl100 and one-shotting Water types.

Arcanine has the best max stats of all of the fire types (non legendaries of course)

I know. That's why I'd chosen him for my (then) next lvl100. Once I realized how much I liked them, I just kept him as my main for the rest of HG (until my DS broke).

I like the fifth gen pokemon. Zebrastrika is one of the best looking pokemon IMO along with Haxorus, Braviary, Bisharp, winter Sawsbuck and that green monkey with the rocker hair. Plus the legendaries are way better looking compared to fourth gen.
So yeah, Zebrastrika is badass design wise.

But third gen pokemon is still my top favorite.

Me personally, as long as I have Pidgeot and Arcanine, I can enjoy any Pokemon game.

incorrect volcarona and infernape are higher. He's pretty strong though.

he never said that. Also I believe magmorter is higher too. Arcanine has q far better move pool though. And magmorter has an awesome movepool

I always thought that a pokemon super smash bros would be awesome. It would take away rpg elements and it would be a VERY ambitious project. It would be more like real pokemon battles though.

To be honest, I did that in Brawl a lot...I would use Pikachu, PK Trainer, Jigglypuff and Lucario in pokemon stadium and just have a pokemon battle lol.

When I hacked my wii, my god the amount of Pokemon battles I had increased lmao! xD
