When is the US going to get some good events? I mean, the Japanese have gotten how many events? As well as Korea and now the UK are getting a very good event (Electabuzz/Magmar plus a free pack of cards...sounds pretty good to me). The only event that the US has gotten has been a really crappy scizor/garchomp from a real trashy store that only rednecks shop at (Wal-mart) that didn't even come with a good held item/moves/ability/nature/etc and that was only available when you bought the game, not as an external event. So I would LOVE to know if the US is ever going to get anything good from this gen. Even if the event pokemon isn't good itself, at least the free item or even a free pack of the TCG would be wonderful.
Our localization and marketing departments in this country are awful when it comes to foreign games. Buy Halo 3? Get a ton of halo 3 merchandise, figurines, shirts, hats, posters, etc. Buy a Pokemon game? eh...here's a crappy Pokemon that you'll never use or even brag about. Have fun, kid. "I'm in my 20's..."
It'd be incredibly simple to create your own event Electabuzz/Magmar...seeing as the moves are all level-up moves, the abilities are available in Friend Safaris, and the held items are found in the Battle Maison for 32 BP each.
