    I wanna get Pokemon Y day one so I need to get a pokemon y download code.
    The only sites I know are best buy and gamestop but they don't allow international buyers :(
    Anyone know where I can get one?

    I would if my credit card would work in eshop.
    And if I buy the cards, I'll have to pay $58 which isn't worth it.

    I don't have any taxes when I pay in e-shop,but since I live in Europe,pre-paid cards in USD won't work for me,but that sounds convenient if they e-mail you immediately.

    I don't have any problems with eShop myself but my friend has differend bank and they just flat out refuse to make their card to work with Nintendo products.
    All I see is Wii/DSi points cards everywhere and all eShop cards are usually US ones just like in the site you linked. As Nintendo products are region locket it's almost certain those US cards just won't work in EU. Does those Wii/DSi cards actually work with 3DS and if yes then what is points in euros?

    The eshop cards are region locked. I've never seen EU ones but a quick google might get you one.
    Actually, in some countries, some credit cards don't work with nintendo. And no, you can't use Wii/DSi Cards for the 3DS.

    Ive never heard of the livegame one.. I like http://www.instantgamecodes.com the best, Ive bought a good chunk of steam prepaid cards from them, and a few nintendo cards. 1st order it took around an hour to get my card, but after that anytime I order I get everything instantly. Technology is nice!!
