They do need internet. Basically you put the serial and the game checks with the nintendo servers if you are allowed to download an event corresponding to that serial, and then proceeds to download it. Or not, if you input a wrong serial. They are probably region locked as well, given they still use the wi-fi.

How do serial code-based events work? Are they basically Wi-Fi events with a password or they don't need the Internet? Do you know if they're region-locked like Wi-Fi events?

Thanks in advance :)
