I've slightly lost touch with news on these types of events over the months. It has been a while since the Hoopa event was revealed to be soon and I'm not sure if I've missed it.

Have I missed it or is it still to come?

The Hoopa event is taking place via GAME through code on-receipt distribution and will be available from October 23rd - November 5th.

I take it this is OR/AS right?

Haven't touched a Pokemon game in ages, but I'd like to grab that Hoopa for my Pokedex. I miss so many events it's crazy.

Still haven't even redeemed by Diancie code, I really hope it doesn't expire (it probably already has).

Oh, dammit. I went into Game today and checked Mystery Gift but found nothing. I forgot about the stupid code on receipt thing. I almost never buy anything from Game, and when I was after Shiny Gengar it took forever to find someone who knew what I was on about. I wish you could just download them like you used to.

Ooh, I'd completely forgotten about this! It's annoying that they don't distribute as many things via the Internet as they used to, but at least the guys at my local GAME are friendly. I think I'll go out and pick up Hoopa tomorrow.

Again, just to let people who want the event but find Game unco-operative (as they have been in the past) or don't want to buy something for the on-receipt-code or whatever but still want the event mon, places like the Serebii and Smogon forums will undoubtedly have plenty to go around. Certainly makes for a decent substitute given NoE's decision to not facilitate wi-fi use in this day and age.

One tip if you do have a co-operative GAME store is to say that you're getting codes for yourself and a sibling/other family member and they might be able to give you two. My friend does this and then goes in on other days when different people are working and repeats. He had about 6 or 7 codes for the last event.

Yeah, I do that as well. My GAME's staff are all really friendly. I could get codes for anyone on here if they don't want to go to their own GAME. Just let me know!

Dammit. I should have got it when I was in Manchester on Saturday. Sadly, I'm not going into Manchester again until the end of November, which is after the event ends.

I was even in the UK during the weekend and had no way to get to a GAME store. So annoyed as Hoopa is one event Pokemon I wanted :cry:

Hoping to get mine some time this weekend, will also try and get one for my brother but I've had it before where they don't like you taking two codes.

Dammit. Didn't have another chance to get to Game. Looks like I've missed my chance. If anyone managed to get a spare code it'd be much appreciated.

Got me a Hoopa in X and OmegaRuby, and got the Prison Bottle in the latter. Weirdly, the Unbound Forme only lasts for three days at a time.

I also got two that both had hindering natures - what are the odds? :roll: I tend not to use legendaries competitively anyway.

Greater than getting one with a beneficial nature.

Granted, but even one that didn't affect the special attack stat would've been a step up! It's still workable though.

I don't suppose anyone still has a spare code I can use? I didn't realise the even ended on the 5th.

So this is coming around again for people who didn't get it last time. According to serebii you can get Hoopa if you use the code HOOPA2016 before 30th, but only if you didn't get it the first time.
