Reading all those Marshadow related posts on the last page, I'm also peeved that Marshadow isn't distributed through QR code like Magearna... like why use this technology to distribute only one
Pokemon with it and with the rest we fall behind for a generation and start running after codes again?

Edit: Turns out it's also going to get distributed at Intertoys and GameMania in the Netherlands, but only one code per person.
Sometimes complaining at the salesperson helps them bend from the 1 code per customer rule though (worked when they tried that with Pokemon 20 event), but generally if people won't be able to give out extras due to their stupid rule, it's gonna suck.

TCPi are shocking with their distributions. While Japanese players get things like Shiny Jirachi and Marshadow we get complete trash like Lycanroc-Midnight and Salazzle which we can easily get in game and with much better stats. They may have given us the 20th anniversary events which Japan didn't get, but all of those Pokemon were available to Japanese players through other means so we aren't exactly getting anything special. Our Victini didn't even have V-Create, the only event Victini to not have the move (outside of the Liberty Island one). Who's bright idea was that?
I've been quietly accepting this for many years but gonna agree it's still unfair. The hierarchy seems to be this: Japan > the US > Europe.
Can't be arsed to care too much whether it's GF, TPCi or our local retailers which ultimately make these daft decisions though but they should realise event Pokemon monopoly isn't gonna bring them happy customers even if some would be tempted to buy other games while at the shops. Long term an unhappy customer is a lost (or hacking) customer... however can they be expected to care as long as they beat their competitors?
