Whats up /vp/. I work at Gamestop and nabbed 3 extra mega stone codes!
I tried on my Japanese game, and got a "this code has already been used" error as opposed to something about the wrong region.
The Japanese Darkrai event code was specifically stated to only work on Japanese games, though.
Some kind of region-locking has to be in play, to explain why the Trainer Club emails will allow Canadian and Latin American players to get their stones without this promotion, but not anyone else.
Which would support the idea of this event being region-locked to North America. Otherwise, anyone outside the US would probably be able to get a code from the newsletter too.
Could anybody outside the UK use that Tesco Quick Ball serial code, or the Japanese and Korean equivalents? That would be the most appropriate analogue to this event for comparison.
No shit, us westerners get shafted out of all the good stuff. I mean who the fuck actually needs one of the Bug Mega Stones almost a year after the game came out, maybe if they released this event like 10 months ago I wouldn't be so mad.
According to the website, it's coming in the September Trainer Club newsletter (if your profile's region is set to Canada). No idea when those usually go out, I've never set my account to allow it before.
