As you all know the event of the shiny Giratina deadline was yesterday.
Today I went into Gamestop and spoke with one of the employees asking about it.
Then they told me that it was done yesterday. I then say: "Drats, Maybe next time...".
After that, he tells me that he can run the Mystery Gift just for me.
Faith in humanity, Restored!
Good guy Gamestop Employee
I am super stoked with my level 100 shiny event Giratina, can't wait for pokemon bank to launch so I can make the transfer
I wasn't able to get a hold of this Giratina, unfortunately. I was planning to, but just never got around to it, as other things kept me busy. I didn't totally need this Pokémon, anyway, because I had a shiny Giratina in my Black version already. It was given to me by my friend as some sort of a present. d: I absolutely have no idea how she's managed to get her hands on it, though. Didn't bother to ask her either. But if I had to guess, I'd say she was able to encounter it by soft resetting. She could've cheated, too, since she does have an Action Replay. The latter is a bit unlikely though, because when I look at its summary, this Pokémon seems to be quite legitimate—the location, the date of capture, the stats… all of it look pretty real.
Anyway, congrats on obtaining the Giratina! :) Most GameStop employees are nice, and do good things like that for their customers—making us keep coming back. I've once gotten into a conversation with a lady who worked there, and it lasted for almost an entire hour. Before leaving, she gave me a free ten-dollar discount. Haha.
