How often does Nintendo do event Pokemon giveaways?

I missed quite a few in the newer games. Never got the Meloetta, Keldeo, Arceus, Genesect, and maybe a few others. I did manage to get Mew, Celebi, Jirachi, Darkrai, and Shaymin legitimately.

I think I read they are doing Torchic now.... from the mystery gift option.

Yeah. there's a Speed Boost torchic with Blazikenite going right now, and it's quite OP.

It really depends.

If there's a new Pokemon movie, there will be an event, in Japan.

In the US it's rather sporadic, and depends on if they want to do it.
Usually around events such as the TCG championships.

GameStop is doing a Shiny Giratina until Oct. 20 (for Gen 5 games).

Not sure if they will do them online or not.

Of course the Torchic Wi-Fi thing for X/Y is going on.

I kinda hope they go back to the old style of giveaways.
Instead of just giving you a Pokemon, you get an item so you can find it yourself.

Yeah I liked how in the older games you'd get like the Member Pass and then travel to an island to get Darkrai. Maybe they stopped that because it was easy for people to use cheats to warp to the area, etc.
