Are event pokemon that special? Should I buy Pokemon Y to get another Torchic?

#1gildedgirthPosted 1/13/2014 5:49:23 PM
Hi, I'm new to Pokémon events -- haven't played Pokémon really since Pokémon Yellow -- and I'm liking Pokémon X a lot.

First time I've gotten an event Pokémon, as I got Torchic on my Pokémon X game.

Since the event is ending soon, is it worth it to buy Pokémon Y so I can get another Torchic?

Aren't event Pokémon really rare? Or is it not a big deal? No reason to have two Torchics?

Maybe because of the upcoming Pokebank it's not worth it?

I'm still a bit overwhelmed with all the changes since Gen 1 of Pokemeon, so sorry if this is a really newbie question.

And I figured if I buy Pokémon Y, it would make trading easier (either with a 2nd 3DS, or viva Pokebank once it gets released). Any opinions?

You can just breed the Torchic to get more of them

You can breed the Torchic, but you only get ONE Mega Stone.

Just clone the Torchic. That is if you want more of the event ones in specific. If you just want another Torchic, breed more.

If good things come to those who wait - arn't they just the leftovers of those who got there first?
There is not good or bad, just perspective and opinion.

Wow. thanks for the fast relies.

Didn't realize you could breed event Pokémon.

Plus you saved me from spending another 40 bucks.

Thanks again.

You can only breed the event Pokemon if its not an unbreedable like a legendary (except Manaphy) or Unown.

Unless you want to have leverage for future trades.
