    I suggest Pokemon Soul Silver if you are thinking about trying out a main series game

    here idk
    A man who knows what's truly important
    They can't get to any stores in the country for this kind of stuff. Guatemala's infrastructure is... well, it's got some room for improvement.
    I know from experience. West Virginia's country roads ain't got nothin' on Guatemala. I've seen both.
    And your power lines would give most engineers an aneurysm.

    Nintendo knows what's up, nobody wants to have to go to Wal-Mart. :D

    What about Fake GPS apps? They exist. Has someone started sharing the QR Code so you could do it from home?

    Go somewhere with free wifi?
    My thoughts exactly.
    Also this. At least make it available at GameStops and EBGames and such in the rest of the world. Like they did with the Pokemon distributions on 3DS before.

    Nintendo in New Zealand. We're like Mexico to Nintendo Australia. Nintendo Australia promised the Gold Mario amiibo would come to Australia and New Zealand, but as a Target exclusive. So I emailed Target, the furniture store chain and asked if they were getting Gold Mario amiibo and got ignored.

    I don't think it came to New Zealand even though they said it would.

    Also, Nintendo Australia is really bad when it comes to localizing, we get European versions even though we are a lot closer to America for region locked online play and our culture is quite Americanized and we are not offended by things that Nintendo UK censors.
    For example, I bought a US Wii U and tested Wii Sports Club, the US version is very playable online, the version on New Zealand eShop lags and disconnects.

    Also, I don't know if Australians have the same problem, but they refused to service 3 people's 3DSes that I know of.

    One time at EBGames, an employee went on a rant to me about how poorly Nintendo Australia communicates about shipments.

    Then what happens if a place hosting an event like this doesn't have free WiFi? Also, the app seems to have Jailbreak detection built-in, as it just crashes whenever I try to launch it anyways. I'm not ready to give up this kind of functionality just to use a single app: IMG_0112.

    The same Shiny Pikachu and Eevee event was announced as a serial code event in South Korea just a couple of days before the app was announced for America.

    Those stores are often in malls, so they will often have free wifi.

    Not a problem on Android since root can be easily hidden :)

    Only Australia and USA have Target department stores and they're both unrelated to each other.

    Yeah, you do have a point about the stores commonly being in malls. The only issue is that I don't think there is a tweak for iOS that can bypass or remove the jailbreak detection code from this specific app yet.
