Couldn't care less about the "catch 'em all" benchmarks (seriously, who even cares enough to try anymore? adding a unique reward would just be aggravating...), but I do dislike "event pokemon" quite a bit. Just let us catch the freaking things, what do you really gain by making us drive to Gamestop just to nab a special pokemon? Or get online during certain special times? I'd maybe be more fine with it if they recycled these "giveaways" more often, but I just think it'd be a lot more fun to get to catch the legendaries.
Did you miss the new area unlocked for seeing the Unova Dex Pokemon, the key item that raises egg production with catching all the Unova Dex Pokemon, and the Shiny Charm from catching the National Dex Pokemon?
Yeah, I did. When were they introduced? Because I didn't really even pretend to look at the new features implemented in Black/White 2.
At least those rewards don't make me feel like I'm missing out on too much I guess. I'm okay with these.
