Here’s a set by step guide on how to do this!
- Change your wifi access point SSI or name to McDonalds Free WiFi and make sure it doesn’t have a password set.

Then set up your phone’s personal hotspot with the same details and use that instead.
- Delete all other networks and register this new one.
- Start your game, then Select Mystery Gift, and then Receive Via the Internet.
- That’s it. You should now have Hoopa in your game.
