    If Nintendo Zone is down, then what the h*** I get Pokemon figure for get Hoopa? It is this some kind of prank or an scam to get Hoopa? I did follow the step but problem is Nintendo Zone is down. Only way to get Hoopa is go to Mcdonald and get on Nintendo Zone then follow the step from paper that you got Pokemon figure. (I really need get Lugia but none of them have it.) But Nintendo Zone is down, so what can I do?

    How can I do that? Beside, it won't let you use WiFi connection because you have to home website to send you to accept to connect to WiFi. 3DS don't support that like Android or Apple phone.

    Just either rename you routers wireless to that and connect your DS to it and go to mystery gift.

    Or you can use your phones wireless hotspot option and do the same and connect

    I am using right now on my 3DS and Nintendo Zone is still down. Even you try it at McDonald, it still down.

    You don't need to access the Nintendo Zone app. You just need to go to mystery gift in Pokemon when a wireless network with the name previously posted is present. It will connect and give you Hoopa...

    You've been making a lot of things complicated recently... There's never any need to.

    All you have to do... is just rename your Network SSID to McDonalds Free WiFi (with capitalization) and make your network so there's no security (WEP/AES, etc.) and simply save the settings and just simply check for a gift in Pokémon...

    McDonald's will pay for people's n00biness... [​IMG]

    My guess is that the McDonald's WiFi connection is designated as "a Nintendo Zone", distinct from "Nintendo Zone" (The app). Probably...

    Anyway, just renaming an open network should work.

    then why I have this piece of paper? I feel like owner of Pokemon already use his trollface on him.

    Alright. I will give a try again when I get ready to do.

    Staff, lock this thread. I already got answer for help. It seem owner of Pokemon is doing trollface on me to use Nintendo Zone to play my anger problem.

    Listen to me. That piece of paper is nothing but shit. Just rename your Wifi, and make it an open connection (no security)

    Dude the event ended this morning. Why are you only trying to get it now when it's been available since November 27th?
