Sorry to tell you but I'm happy it's GameStop since there is one walking distance from my house. I'd get you a code but I don't think NA codes will work for European games unfortunately...

Thank you but like you already said, NA codes don't work in Europe ^^
I hope my GameStop will have some codes... or I hope to be lucky and go to the ones that aren't near here (and get some codes for a giveaway here on the forums asd)

Does this mean that we won't be able to receive these Pokemon in the new game(s) that come out this year? I mean, Pokemon Z has to be coming in 2016, right?

Since they haven't announced Z for now, it's for the games that were already released... and if they will release Z it will be near the end of the year so they will have left 2-3 Pokémon that will be reedemen in XY/ORAS and traded to Z :yesyes:

Ugh, I was kinda hoping for Z and Gen 7 this year since we got nothing in 2015 but alright.

Usually it's impossibile for a game like Z and a new generation to be released the same year... maybe we will get Z this year (at the end) and the first news about the gen 7 with the movie and the next gen plus the game in 2017 :yesyes:

The most likely reason we didn't get anything for 2015 are probably:
1. Saving for 20th Anniversary.
2. Making sure they make it the best!
Cause think we will most likely be getting Battle Frontier, and who knows what other locations! Whether this game will be a sequel or 3rd installment (Crystal, Emerald, Platinum), there are always new locations to explore.

Crystal- Battle Tower
Emerald- Battle Frontier, Dessert Underpass, Mirage Tower, Enemy Bases, etc.
Platinum- Distortion World & Battle Frontier
B2W2- Too many to count!
