PokéBase - Pokémon Q&A

Hello beautiful people. I live in the UK and have a Japanese copy of Alpha sapphire, everytime I try an active event via wifi it doesn't work but I am unsure to why that is. Is it because I need to be in Japan and do it since it comes from Japan? and can I do Japanese events in the uk via wifi using the wifi in the uk (I know events aren't always done via wifi but for the ones that are).

Thank you for your time.

The answer to your question is NO

I understand how it's hard to receive event Pokemon, but it is not because of where you live - it is the date and time. Events for a game WILL reach worldwide, but will be removed due to it only being available for a limited time.

For example, OR/AS's shiny beldum event when the game was released.

In America: November 21st 2014 - January 14th 2015
In Japan: November 21st 2014 - January 14th 2015
In Europe: November 28th 2014 -January 14th 2015

As you can see, the Event will reach around the world, but in different times. Since each event is available for a limited amount of time, you can not receive an event Pokemon when it is finished.

Hope I helped! :)

Thank you! :)
Wait so should I follow the Japanese event calendar since the copy of ORAS I have is Japanese?
No, you follow the calender according to what region you're living in - the copy just affects the language pretty much
