    This is a quick guide to receiving Pokémon events in Pokémon X, Y, Omega Ruby, and Alpha Sapphire. Please note that to do any of these, you will have to have started your game and received your Pokédex.

    Internet Events

    These are the equivalent to the Nintendo WFC distributions back in the DS games. To receive these events:
    1. Have your 3DS configured to connect to Wi-Fi. Click here for a guide if you haven't done this already.
    2. Return to the game's title menu, where you are offered to continue your game, access Mystery Gift, or access Live Competition.
    3. Enter the Mystery Gift menu.
    4. Click Receive Gift, and agree to open the communication channel.
    5. Choose "Get via Internet"
    6. Any available events will appear: press A to download one.
    7. Return to the title screen and continue your game.
    8. Visit a Pokémon Center.
    9. To the left of the desk will be a woman in blue. Talk to her, with at least one empty space in your party, to receive the event!

    Local Wireless Events

    These events are distributed physically at stores - usually GAME in the UK, GameStop in the US, etcetera. To receive these events:
    1. Go to a store offering these events. If you're unsure where an event is being offered near you, visit the official Pokémon website, which will have a list.
    2. Return to the game's title menu, where you are offered to continue your game, access Mystery Gift, or access Live Competition.
    3. Enter the Mystery Gift menu.
    4. Click Receive Gift, and agree to open the communication channel.
    5. Choose "Get via Local Wireless"
    6. Any available events will appear: press A to download one.
    7. Return to the title screen and continue your game.
    8. Visit a Pokémon Center.
    9. To the left of the desk will be a woman in blue. Talk to her, with at least one empty space in your party, to receive the event!

    Code Events

    These events are the equivalent to Gen V's Global Link distributions, and are distributed via codes you enter into your game, which you can get from stores or around the internet. To receive these events:
    1. Make sure you have a code first. These are given out in a variety of ways - check our news for their locations as they happen.
    2. Have your 3DS configured to connect to Wi-Fi. Click here for a guide if you haven't done this already.
    3. Return to the game's title menu, where you are offered to continue your game, access Mystery Gift, or access Live Competition.
    4. Enter the Mystery Gift menu.
    5. Click Receive Gift, and agree to open the communication channel.
    6. Choose "Get via Code"
    7. You will be asked to enter the code. Once the code has been entered correctly, the event corresponding to your code will appear: press A to download it.
    8. Return to the title screen and continue your game.
    9. Visit a Pokémon Center.
    10. To the left of the desk will be a woman in blue. Talk to her, with at least one empty space in your party, to receive the event!
