Nintendo 3DS Miis: Kanto Gym Leaders

Not a whole lot in the way of news in the Pokémon world at the moment, so I took the opportunity to make some Miis for the 3DS that look like the Kanto Gym Leaders (plus Prof. Oak). If you have a 3DS, you can download the Gym Leaders by going to the Mii application and choose QR Code/Image Options. Next, simply choose the Scan QR Code option and line up the square with the image codes below.

Once you add these Miis to your 3DS, they may appear randomly in your games. An example would be Pokémon Rumble Blast, where Miis on your 3DS sometimes visit your game and make purchases.

Japanese Pokémon Center Egg Distribution

Japanese Pokémon Centers will be giving away eggs of these six Pokémon starting on January 5th to celebrate the Year of the Dragon:
  • Horsea
  • Trapinch
  • Swablu
  • Bagon
  • Druddigon
  • Deino
Here's the thing... they're all gonna be shiny and since eggs can't have ribbons.. they will be tradeable over the GTS. If you restrict your searches for these guys to Japan between lv 1 - 10... you may get lucky and find one where the person offering them isn't asking for anything too ridiculous (I'm sure you will also see some untradeable ones too where the person wants a Lv. 9 or under legend). Some kids don't even know what shinies are so I would expect to see some up for legendaries. I personally plan on stocking up on random legends online over the next couple of days to try to get at least one of these.. or at least try. They may also have other things special about them, such as moves they can't normally learn or hidden abilities, but so far none of that info has been released.
