    Between November 27th and December 23rd, head over to select McDonald's with your 3DS to get the mystical Pokémon Hoopa. This is the first opportunity for Americans to obtain this rare monster.

    All you have to do is head to McDonald's with a copy of Pokemon X/Y/OR/AS and connect your 3DS to the Nintendo Zone after logging into the free Wi-Fi.

    It's nice that this promotion is available for all four of the main Pokémon games for 3DS, but when it's in OR/AS it can transform into Hoopa Unbound! There is no information yet as to if this is a US based event only. This is one of the longer Pokémon events in recent years but don't delay to get this sucker.

    Anybody want to try to hack this? I can not imagine they shipped a device/firmware/something to every mcdonalds for a simple promotion like this so I imagine the streetpass mac address stuff is probably what goes. Find a mac address of the router of a participating mcdonalds (will probably want you to go there with a laptop running a copy of wireshark/general network bothering tools, though android might have some stuff capable of finding it out) and stick that on a streetpass setup.

    Wifi Analyzer available from Play Store can view MACs of all WiFi networks the phone can currently detect.

    Yeah it's certainly done through the streetpass mac address and I wouldn't be surprised if people can get him using homepass. It may even be as easy as changing your router's mac address, assuming that you're using that method of Homepass.

    Obligatory promotion of myself showing people my method of using homepass which may or may not be outdated because I made the video over a year ago.

    It may be even simpler, wouldn't surprise me if all you had to do is change the SSID for a special, promotion-only one, where MAC doesn't matter.

    my dad works for nintendo.
    i was at FNAC, (a store where i got my 3ds and where they make the events here)
    the instructions was to connect to the internet.. i tried local wireless didn't get a thing...
    they had a nintendo zone setup there, i didn't need to go into settings and choose a internet connection, when oppening nintendo zone in a lower firmware it asked me to update the console, and it did successfully... after that i was able to claim the gift via "internet"

    however, since i will not go back there soon... i can't get the mac address...

    Has it been SSID in the past? To change SSID would be something I might place above the average technical nous of mcdonalds employees the land over, I suppose they could have used remote configuration but it still seems easier to just use a list (or pattern matching) from a mac address sent from the device in question.
