Originally announced by Masuda at a fan event at the Fukuoka Pokemon Center as being a Pikachu with Extremespeed to be distributed at Kyushu Shinkansens (to celebrate the one year anniversary of the full completion of the Kyushu bullet train line) (and one year anniversary of the Fukuoka Pokemon Center moving)... this event has exploded into a MASSIVE "Super-Powerful" Hoenn Pokemon giveaway.
A Pikachu knowing ExtremeSpeed
will be distributed wirelessly on Shinkansens running in Kyushu from March 1st - May 6th.
Hold item: none
Ball: Cherish Ball
Ribbon: Classic Ribbon
Between March 17th and May 6th, a plethora of powerful Pokemon will be distributed by IR at 8 different train stations in Kyushu.
During each time period, you can randomly get one of three Pokemon.
Distribution 1: March 17 - April 1 will be Sceptile, Blaziken, and Swampert.
Distribution 2: April 2 - April 22 will be Milotic, Ludicolo, and Walrein.
Distribution 3: April 23 - May 6 will be Metagross, Salamence, and Gardevoir.
During the same time period, you are able to visit other stations to try again
(meaning there must be unique WC IDs for each station and each distribution period).
If you take the Pokemon you received at a station to the Pokemon Center in Fukuoka, you can receive one of the two main Legendary Pokemon from Hoenn (at level 80).
Groudon will be distributed from March 17 - April 15
Kyogre will be distributed from April 16 - May 6
The Pikachu from the trains can't be used to get these Pokemon, it has to be one of the station Pokemon.
(It'd be nice to source PP.org as well if you are getting the translation of this news from here, from me)
Huh, another useless Pikachu.
Hoenn = Kyushu
So that's the reasoning behind the Pokemon choice.
But who knows.
This is what Card ID tampering / multiple cartridges are for.
It's still not as bad or redundant as TfE. I think it'll attract more people than those older Events anyway. There couldn't be a more interesting set of Events before the Movie ones are announced, and especially before those next game releases. It would definitely be nice to have Groudon and Kyogre after the Rayquaza Event from the poll too.
Probably Blaziken and Swampert will go along with Sceptile...
Edit: Win. What next, Salamence in the third distro?

I don't accept VMs, only PMs.
Sorry, but seeing that you are encouraging people to use bulbapedia as their reference, I'm closing this.
No one should be encouraged to visit that site as they often have errors, are now owned by some kind of evil media company, and the staff had a secret child porn forum in the bulbagarden forums (among other dubious behavior). - Guested
My PokeCheck Stuff:
Stuff I got myself.
Togepi Breeding Project
Dream World/Global Link Pokes
Stuff from other peeps:
Level 1 RNG IV bred
RNG Wild Captures
RNG Dream World/Global Link
Cool PokeWalker Stuff
Box of Berries and Items
If you want any of these mons without the Classic "clone" Ribbon, just download the pkm file and use PokeGTS
We've got an update, and the other Pokemon in Sceptile's distribution are Swampert and Blaziken.
More details here.
My guess for the last 4 unknown pokémon:
We will see!
Signature was made by Toffeuy!
They had some move descriptions up on Sceptile that didn't match its moves. The descriptions made me think it was a moveset for Aggron, so that's pretty possible, I think.
Apparently these CAN be shiny, as Xfr has uploaded several onto Pokecheck
These Wonder Cards do not have the normal shiny check in place, so it is possible for them to be shiny color-variants.
As far I've seen, this series, Groudon, and the Sakura Pikachu were the first ones to have this.
Ah, I hadn't seen that you'd updated the description. Presumably Kyogre can also be recieved shiny as well.
