this has always been one of the biggest issues i had.

i unlocked mystery gift in GSC but obviously could never use it because, there was nothing to use it with! i was excited, i was like damn, mystery gift! this must the the real shabazz! but nope, never saw use. but i was hopeful that one day, i could be able to use mystery gift to get rare and valuable items and pokemon that i could never obtain before.

then finally my dream came true. DP brought wifi to pokemon games, and mystery gift made its return! but... much to my dismay, THERE WAS NEVER ANY ****ING MYSTERY GIFT WIFI EVENTS.
AND TO THIS DAY THERE HAVE BEEN SO FEW ITS DISGUSTING.

1 event that i can recall. just 1. thats it. WTF? liberty pass victini, that was ONLY available at the opening month of BW1 and never again since?! and i cant even TRANSFER it to any other BW games??!??!? what if i bought black during the month of release, and i bought white way later and wanted to go to liberty island? I CANT! **** you nintendo, i hate you all.

I'm not easily impressed; I'm usually oblivious to whatever's in front of me.

yeah but i mean come on. there are still way too few of these events, and they are distributed in such a short window of time that its unfair to the players.

you cant even share them between games once you get them.

like wtf. in the PWT i can download teams and opponents to fight that stay in my game for as long as i want, but i cant get anything else to keep forever like that?

nintendo, thats mad grime.

There has been plenty of use for mystery gift.

FYI, in GSC mystery gift was a way for friends to link up and recieve a random item. It was also used to connect with the Pokemon Pikachu 2 GS. It has no relation to the modern version used for events.

http://bulbapedia.bulbagarden.net/wiki/Pok%C3%A9mon_Pikachu_2_GS

Mystery Gift has been used by Pokemon Battle Revolution and other titles to send rewards to the games.

There have been many local wireless events that require you to go to a shop or other location and use Mystery Gift.

FYI, you can keep what you recieve from Mystery Gift. You might not be able to go through some special sequence, like the first Victini event, but you still have the real reward.

Keeping it is as easy as having a trustworthy friend to trade it to, and hold onto it until you start a new game.

But later, after Pokemon Bank comes out for X and Y, you can keep them without a friendly proxy, by uploading them to the Bank, and withdrawing them after starting a new game.
