I went to my Gamestop and asked about the Gengar event.  They had no idea and referred me to the poster hanging up describing the Pinsir/Heracross one.

 

I just don't know, anymore.

I had a similar incident where the dumb lady at my Gamestop didn't know about the Gengar event until i pointed to the poster. Even then, she didn't know that she was supposed to give me a card with the code on it until i clearly pointed to the line at the bottom of the poster saying "ask sales person for code card". Back when i briefly worked at a Gamestop years ago, the store manager would always tell the staff when there was some promotion like that going on. Now i wonder if the store even has a manager, anymore, or at least one who gives a damn.

Just a quick heads-up for those grabbing Diancie via GameStop download cards.  When you redeem your download code in-game and pick Diancie up from the Mystery Gift girl in a Pokemon Center, you'll see a special cutscene.  People already figured it's probably to discourage soft-resetters for those looking for the right nature for their new Pokemon.

 

If you're trying to soft-reset to get a good nature for your Diancie, that cutscene will trigger over and over until you abandon soft-resetting or you actually get something you want randomly.

Lol, i don't know what's funnier: Gamefreak's trolling, or the soft-resetters' over-reacting to it.

It's a bit funny yeah since Mystery Gift Pokemon have random IVs.  So even if you could get a wanted nature quickly with Diancie, you may not get a good IV spread with that nature.  Double whammy right there for soft-resetters since you'll have to waste time redoing that cutscene and taking the time to go have Diancie's IV's read. <.<;;

I don't fucking get it. :|

Most games don't even have a soft reset option. Pokémon does, and for the specific reason of obtaining the poke that you desire. So, why the dick would they go out of their way to create a mechanism to discourage the use of another mechanism for which they already went completely out of their way to create? I'm down for cutscenes because fuck yeah cutscenes, but if the purpose for its incorporation was to discourage soft resetting... holy shit.
