Nowadays you can get yourself a Mew, a Celebi or a Deoxys, or even all three in the space of a few hours if you use the Serebii Wi-Fi chat well. In recent years, when I download these rare Pokémon onto my DS they just don't seem so cool anymore, because you know everyone who has Pokémon Black or White and a Wi-Fi connection has them too, whereas when you went to an event you knew you were one of much less. When I got Jirachi on Ruby using my friends Pokémon channel disc I was absolutely thrilled! Back in the GBA games Nintendo really promoted the social aspect of Pokémon. It was really great!
I find myself unable to attend events though, and as I was unable to download the special items on all the pre B&W DS titles as I had no internet access with it I therefore missed out. This is just my opportunity to get them to then send them on to each subsequent game. I have no love for using any of the event pokemon. I have my favourites!
