ITT: Discuss C-Gear customization & other Pokemon Global Link-related customization items.

In Black / White, we were presented with a different method of decoration than previous games. Rather than restricting us to a number of preset themes that are unlocked in-game, we have a feature in the Pokemon Global Link that allows us to download skins for our C-Gear and Pokedex. So far, we've been presented with a lot of different skins including the following:

Munna's Flower Garden
Pikachu C-Gear
Twinkle Minccino
Purrloin C-Gear
Earful Audino
Pleasant Piplup
Poison Jab Croagunk
Venusaur / Charizard / Blastoise
Victorious V
Virtual Pokemon
Pokemon Cafe
White / Black Hero
PWC 2011
Deerling (Sp/Su/Au/Wi)

We have also been graced with two Pokedex skins so far: the Starter Pals theme (Gen V starters) and Kanto Trio (Gen I starters).

While some of them have been released in the US / Internationally, most are only released in Japan. Click here for a list of all the released themes. (http://www.serebii.net/blackwhite/globallinkdownloads.shtml) Anyway; questions:

Do you like how the customization system works in this game (how you have to use PGL to switch themes / can only have one theme at a time)? Do you like the distribution method?
How many of the themes do you have?
What theme are you using right now?
Have you missed any of the events offered to you?
What events that have not happened yet (in your region) do you want to happen?
What kind of theme do you wish they had? If you could design your own theme, what would it look like?

ARE WE ANSWERING SIX BY SIX OR NO?! Either way wonderful effort you please me.

I hate how you need to use the Global Link to change that stuff. :x I guess it's the main reason why I don't really change, because I'd much rather if everything were on the game and I could easily select it.

UH. As for what I'm using it's the Minccino one, I think. idk it's blue so I'm pretty sure it's that. I've got everything offered except let's see... the four Deerling ones. I think I only have like 2 of those, but really, they're pretty useless as it is so I don't really mind that I missed out.

I WANT THE AUDINO THEME... just cause I really wanted it and I couldn't get it. :( If I could design one, idk what I'd design really, probably something Herdier-based! Cause Herdier's so great and such. :3

Um, so, this is going to be a really crappy reply, but I don't... I don't use c-gear. I turn it off immediately after getting it during restarts of the game, and I don't turn it on when I'm continuing the game. I think it's a waste of battery power since I don't have much of a need for it. I haven't even seen those skins. :(
