This would be nice. I remember there being a period in time where there was some sort of 'luck of the draw' event Pokemon for certain TCG packs, but that was in Japan as well *I believe*. xDYes, that's something that's concerned me as well. For individuals with access to all the necessary hardware and software, there is still the 11-year-old WISHMKR Jirachi, but that really gets "old" after a while in the midst of things like Japan's shiny Jirachi distributions. Besides that technically ongoing distribution, the last time Jirachi has seen a fairly wide giveaway was 5 1/2 years ago.
There are a whole host of other Pokemon that it would be great to see again in the "West" (and probably most everywhere else as well too), such as Mew, Manaphy, Arceus, Shaymin, Darkrai, Genesect, Meloetta, and Keldeo. Perhaps there will eventually be an "event-only legendaries" distribution, where shared serial codes will be given out for special versions of every available event Pokemon. With regard to Manaphy in particular, it just passed the 8 year anniversary since it has been made widely available for main-series players.
@magma grunt edu- I bet it is especially tricky in Asia and Europe simply due to the number of countries that are present, not to mention how it isn't treated as one large region at times. As for the case in Asia, that normally isn't the case at all; you rarely here of events outside Japan and sometimes China happening at all.
As for the other post, I'll edit this one for that one above me once I clear my head a little.
@ Painkiller2001- It is, especially if the physical codes themselves are gone, and you end up missing out on an event that's supposed to last a specific amount of time after already driving to said out-of-the-way location. Driving an hour and a half out of the way with fuel one pays for fill-up with their own money. Working 8+ hour shifts on a regular basis. Full-time post-primary education student (oh yeah, that isn't necessarily free where this person is either). Volunteering. The list actually goes on. Please think twice before assuming a group of people are 'lazy' by your standards for not making it top priority in their lives above all else.
I would address other points as well, but I'll just say this: It'll do for you to not make a group of completely baseless assumptions without knowing the personal circumstance of each and every person you seek to blanket with such a statement. It comes across as being quite rude, no matter how many times you 'apologize' before-hand or afterwards.
If you have anything else that needs clearing up, PMs are always open.
