I've been trying to get a definite answer to this for years, and I've never gotten one.
Was it ever possible to get a legit AuroraTicket on a US copy of Pokemon Emerald?
I definitely know the following is true:
- The AuroraTicket was distributed at Pokemon Rocks America 2004 for FR/LG, before Emerald was released. The MysticTicket was not distributed at this event.
- The MysticTicket was distributed at PRA 2005 for FR/LG/E. I have never gotten a definite answer as to whether or not the AuroraTicket was distributed as well. A lot of sources I have looked at, including old forum archives discussing the event, have conflicting info.
I need answers on the following:
- I know that European copies of Emerald could receive the AuroraTicket during a particular time period by sending their cartridge to Nintendo. Was this ever done in the US?
- Would it have been possible to send a US cartridge to Nintendo of Europe during this time period, and have them put the ticket there, or would there have been region locking issues, etc.?
- Was the AuroraTicket ever distributed at PRA 2005, or at other events in the US after Emerald was released?
I would appreciate any solid proof, such as pictures, video, etc. of whether or not an US Emerald AuroraTicket is legit or not.
