Canadian Secret Key Event

  1. [img align=left]http://i230.photobucket.com/albums/ee278/Plapti/SecretKey.png[/img]From what I've heard, this is like a miracle for Canadians (So I'm exaggerating a little).

    There will be an event for Canadians to download the Secret Key from participating retailers from April 19th to April 26th. This isn't the assumed event that can be downloaded over the Wi-Fi. Instead, this uses a local network that you have to go to and download from a download station.

    At this time, it is unknown if retailers in the United States will follow suit.

    So, Canadians can assure themselves a Secret Key if they don't have Wi-Fi access. Rumours have found their way to also saying that the Wi-Fi event might be taking place at around the same time, so keep checking back, we will update when we find out.

      First I'm going to have to somehow figure out if the Toys 'R Us in Moncton, NB, will actually be holding the event. If so, it'll be a day trip across our silly bridge for me on one of the weekends ^__^

      Is there any information about what Retailers will be holding the event?

      Also is this only for Platinum, or is it for Diamond and Pearl too?

      Right now Toys 'R' Us has the event advertised straight on their website, so I'm not sure if other retailers would be holding it or not. Chances are that's the only one doing it.

      And sounds like it's just Platinum, which makes perfect sense.

      The event will be local WiFi, which is basically the same as hooking up two DS side by side, connecting your DS to your Wii, etc. There's going to be a download station set-up in advance, so anyone who brings a DS and a copy of Platinum with them will be able to download the Secret Key and receive it via Mystery Gift. Basically, same as how they handled all the rare Pokemon giveaways at the other, non-WFC events.

      Maybe that's what's confusing you. When someone says you can download it through "local WiFi", they're not referring to the WiFi Connection (WFC). Local WiFi is direct hook up. WFC is via wireless internet access.
