Visitors to participating GameStops in North America can engage in some early Trick or Treating. From now until 26th October, free codes are being distributed for owners of Pokémon X & Y to possess a Shiny Gengar holding some Gengarite.
The Shiny Gengar on its own knows Sludge Wave, a move it can't pick up through regular play. Once it mega-evolves, however, it turns a dazzling white and gains the ability Shadow Tag, which creepypastes opponents in place and prevents them from switching out or fleeing.
You can see the Mega Shiny Gengar in action below. Hex Girls (and Guys) in the UK should expect codes to hit GAME stores beginning 15th October.

Another GameStop event? Pass.
.... What's the point of even having the Wifi option of gifting Pokemon in Pokemon games when Gamefreak/Nintendo does stupid stuff like this and limit it to Gamestop?! Luckily... I should be getting Bayonetta 2 on its release date so I'll bring my 3DS the same day to Gamestop. Still though... this is dumb.
Hopefully getting this next week. I really want a shiny Gengar
Best Buy events i went too didn't leave a good impression so im skeptical on doing this never did an event at Gamestop
sighs I miss the old Mystery Gifts where you get an item to unlock a special in-game event. :c
Exactly why we have cloners and powersaves.
In mexico they have the same event, but the code distribution is online! No in-store distribution if you don't want to.
@Xiao_Pai Yeah they haven't done that since Pokemon Black/White and in that generation they only had one of that event (Victini). Maybe they'll bring them back once they get a hang of their 3d engine and can focus on other aspects of the games.
It seems Australia will be able to get it via wifi at certain EB Games stores, 4x Shiny Gengars for me!
I think we just have to accept that GameFreak forgot that Wi-Fi exists.
how does the distribution happen?
Unfortunately, the EBGames around where I live are only giving the codes out to people who have preordered either Pokemon Omega Ruby or Alpha Sapphire. Not sure if it's the same everywhere in Canada.
I got an extra code. Who wants it?
@Olmectron I would like the extra code, if you still have it.
@PHDragoon Okay. Email? or wherever you could receive a private message?
@Olmectron thanks for the code. I just used it.
@PHDragoon You're welcome!
hey NOA, where's our pre order bonus that's NOT a poster
Great, I forsee difficulties in getting two codes for my X and Y like with the Pinsir/Herecross event.
@PHDragoon Technically they are supposed to give you the code even if you don't preorder
@Porky If you ask nicely, I'm sure they'll give you two. If not, pull a random person aside and give them a dollar to get you one
anyone who has an extra shiny gengar code? would love to have one if you can spare one..thanks..here's my email [email protected]
Yeah, if you have an extra code and are feeling generous, please email me at [email protected]
Thanks a ton!
Would've been nice if this was around Nov. 21 so I can get both the code and Smash at the same time. Oh well, I guess I'll have to drop by EB Games later of this month.
@Shane904 It depends on the retailer. The person working at the time was very reluctant on giving more than 1 codes per person. Even after I showed him my two games! Then I asked my friend to get me one, she got two without asking for more!
I never really cared for Shiny Gengar, but man, the Shiny Gengar in that poster (with the light purple on the lower third of his body) looks much nicer than the Shiny Gengar in-game.
any extra codes around here?
@Blast you don't even need to bring your 3DS, they're just gonna give you a code to get it.
A retail store in Mexico, called Gameplanet, did a limited distribution... There's no codes left right now
@PHDragoon No, that store is violating corporate policy. You should complain to a corporate office in Canada. The codes are provided for FREE as part of an agreement between Nintendo and EBGames/Gamestop, and you are NOT required to purchase or pre-order anything to get them.
They're allowed to ask you to pre-order ORAS, which is the entire reason Nintendo holds these events at Gamestop/EB, but forcing you to pre-order to get something they're supposed to give out for free is a violation of their agreement with Nintendo. You can also complain to Nintendo and report the store in violation.
If anyone has a spare code could you hit me up with one please? E-mail [email protected]
What about people that don't have any gamestop in their country....so cruel nintendo
If anyone has a spare code could you share one for me pls?
My email [email protected]
I'll be picking this up tomorrow when I get a Wii U. This is excellent, I've been looking for a Gengar with Sludge Wave.
Well if there is some good souls around here that want share a extra serial code for a South American Pokemon player I'll be eternaly thankful!
I'm going to GameStop tomorrow (^_^) So happy about this event, I will own a Shiny Mega Gengar with Sluge Wave!
You know, Gamestops are practically everywhere in the U.S. Is it really so hard to get a ride there sometime over a three week period and just grab a piece of paper?
@jarsys Well, these codes probably only work on a North American copy of the game in the first place.
These in-store events are business practices meant to get people to preorder games (Pokemon ORAS) while in the store.
I am wondering if anyone has a spare code could you share one for me plzzzz??? I am in Australia but holding an European copy of the game, never going to get the Shiny Gengar...here's my email [email protected] thank you very much!!!
I wish Gamefreak would release this as mystery gifts, say, a year or two after the distribution if they insist on making events.
Don't suppose anyone in the US reading this can help me get a code? Pretty please?
If anyone has a spare code for the EU version. Would be awesome
So i have to drive 25 mins, go to a gamestop (ebgames) wait in line while a bunch of kids are yelling at their parents to get this game and that game, all just for a piece of paper with a number on it to download a character which i'll probably never use... meh pass(mystery gift was awesome)
I'm totally getting this, but when are they finally going to release Diancie, Hoopa and Volcanion? I ended up getting a Japanese Diancie in a trade, but I really want Hoopa and Volcanion (I've always dreamed of having a Fire/Water type). It seems weird to wait so long to release these X and Y legendaries when Omega Ruby and Alpha Sapphire are almost out.
Just got mine! I'm usually pretty bad about using these codes but I made sure I went ahead and got it today!
@Xiao_Pai that sounds kinda similar to locking disc content for dlc imo. I prefer that those of us that dont have access to gamestop can still do everything intended on the cartridge (although this gengar with sludge wave I can live without ) I could not do any of the Emerald events because i got the game well after all the events had passed, so I was stuck missing out on a bit of gameplay :/ It would be cool to have additional storyline as (free) DLC tho.
I understand that Nintendo (or GameStop) want people to wandering in the store. Yes, you might not give any interest but the child and other might do. BTW I'm living somewhere but the USA and having a hard time obtaining the code that require showing up at the store.
And please ... if anyone could obtain the code or have a spare one may I have that? I wished I could grabbed one myself but my physical location doesnt allow me to.
Hi, guys! who have Shiny Mega Gengar extra code?
Because i really like Shiny Mega Gengar & really hope can get it!
Thanks i really appreciate it!
This my email [email protected]
@Ryu_Niiyama Hi, do you have extra code for Shiny Mega Gengar?
I picked up the code card from GameStop. Will it still work if I try to use the code after October 26th? I don't have a 2DS yet because I am not sure if I should wait for a price drop on the 2DS...
Hi, @ZjFresh do you have extra code for Shiny Mega Gengar? If have hope youcan give me one!
@ZjFresh what i know the code only work before October 26th only after that's the code cannot be use... Really hope i can get one for the code...
@BulbasaurusRex Well unfortunately I live in Canada (which is part of North America). Haven't seen a Gamestop in awhile, mostly EB Games near where I live. They didn't have the shiny Gengar; instead I got a Diancie (which I admit is pretty awesome).
Does anybody have an extra code for the shiny gangar? All the EB games near my location are all out already. They gave me the Diancie card for the next event insted. I'm willing to trade if anybody has an extra code.
@Olmectron do you still have extra code for shiny gengar event? Really hope you still have...
@Phle extra code please...
extra code for me please, pretty please [email protected]
Does anyone have a extra code?
Please help me out anyone with an extra code.
I really want a shiney mega gengar and i live in Singapore which is almost impossible to get not to say we won't even have diancie...
I am really a fan of pomemon been following all its game throughout the series but exclusive events like this are sometimes out of our reach here...
Would really be grateful if anyone with an extra code would be willing to give it to me. Thanks.
