I wish they’d just use the Mystery Gift method that is literally built into the game & impossible for every player to miss.
They are that terrified of people just farming mythicals? lol

They kind of already did that though when so many people used the UK & Germany Gamestop codes after their failed attempt to release Zarude the first time

This. I went on the French equivalent of Gamestop’s website and got mine.

So I did some digging through the email headers of the newsletter. Pokémon runs the domain used for sending out emails, but the IP address is owned by Salesforce. I wonder if the codes are sent out through the same system or if they are using something else that is getting throttled or falling over.

I did get the TCG email that went out today, so I don’t think it’s an issue with the email system itself.

Why they don’t just distribute through Pokémon.com is beyond me.
Yeah, I used to get emails... In 2015. I really don't know what the issue is, but it's a problem they need to fix. I hope that they had enough codes to distribute through the help emails this time, cause they are gonna need them.

Open a ticket at https://support.pokemon.com.

It may be a while before they get back to you, though.

I finally got Dada Zarude. I was going to store it in Home, but I think I may keep it with the rest of my reserves since it's not too OP

EDIT: Never mind, I can't give it a nickname so I may not keep it -_-

Been over 48 hours, and still no response from help on the Zarude and Celebii codes. Still got the high volume message up on the support page. Either the weekend has slowed them down, or they really messed this one up.

So has anyone gotten a response yet then? If they had the support team go home over the weekend hoping everything would go out like it was suppossed to, I pity the poor support team. Cause they are gonna go into work Monday and find their request folders are pretty bad. And the longer this goes without being addressed, the more people are going to get mad about it and take it out on them, I fear.

Just realized, we might not get any responses from the newsletter help team until tomorrow. Today is a holiday in the states, and if they observe this one at the company, then we're looking at a long weekend, and they may not have even started going through the complaints.

Columbus Day is a mainly a bank and government holiday. There is no mail delivery, but many companies continue to do work as normal.

So I decided to stop by my local Best Buy today to get a hard drive and the GMax Pikachu/Eevee codes. The cashier I talked to said that the codes were gone yesterday. They timed it, and they were gone within 7 minutes of the store opening.

Either they didn't have enough, or they were REALLY popular.

Well I sent my request in Saturday at noon and still haven't heard back from them, and it took a lot less time with the First Zarude fiasco. So I'm just looking for some reason it's taking so long for anyone to hear from them.

That's surprising, since it's for the pair of crystals, and while there's some unique moves on them they aren't shiny or anything. They really are knocking it out of the park for their USA distributions aren't they?

I still haven't received anything. No codes, and no response from support. Has anyone who is waiting for codes received anything?
No, I'm still waiting for any kind of response either. I sent my help request in Saturday. This is surprising, because I got a response much faster with the first Zarude event, and that had a lot more people complaining, I got a response in about 12 hours there. And in September when I asked if there was anything else I could do to try and ensure I got the newsletter, they got back to me in less than two hours.

We still have the high volume of inquiries message up on the site, so who knows. I'm giving them until that message dissappears or sometime tomorrow, whichever comes first before I try contacting them again.

I got a response from support a few hours ago. It was basically a rehash of the KB article.
