Here’s How To Get Hoopa in Pokemon Without Visiting McDonalds

If McDonald’s isn’t your thing and you really want the Hoopa Pokemon then there’s a little trick you can use. To get Hoopa the normal way you need to visit your local McDonald’s and use their wifi to gain access to the game’s Mystery Gift function.To get around this all you need to do is change your WiFi name to McDonalds Free WiFi and make sure a password isn’t set. Here’s a set by step guide on how to do this!

  1. Change your wifi access point SSI or name to McDonalds Free WiFi and make sure it doesn’t have a password set.  Don’t have access to your router or internet connection (because you live with your family and don’t want to change the settings)?  Then set up your phone’s personal hotspot with the same details and use that instead.
  2. Delete all other networks and register this new one.
  3. Start your game, then Select Mystery Gift, and then Receive Via the Internet.
  4.  That’s it.  You should now have Hoopa in your game.

Rumour: Amazon Has Pokemon Game Boy Virtual Console Games Priced At $9.99

We were all delighted to learn that Pokemon Red, Blue and Yellow will eventually be heading to the Nintendo 3DS Virtual Console. Nintendo has yet to mention pricing for the games, but most of us expect that they will retail for the standard price of Game Boy Virtual Console titles on the Nintendo 3DS. However, online retailer Amazon has the digital versions listed at $9.99 each which seems a little steep. They are also listed with a February 27th release date.

A new Kids React video is up and takes another look at Pokemon. The children who participated in this segment were asked to share their thoughts on the original Pokemon anime and the franchise in general. Based on their responses, most of them seemed to be very fond of Pokemon. One girl even admitted that she somehow had a crush on Mewtwo – talk about Pokemon passion. If you haven’t done so already, be sure to check out the Kids React featuring Pokemon Snap.

Japan Will Be Getting Boxed Versions Of The Virtual Console Pokemon Games

After we received the exciting news that Pokemon Red, Blue and Yellow will be released onto the 3DS Virtual Console in February, Japan also got the news that they will be getting boxed versions of the titles with a download code inside of it.

There’s no news on whether or not the West will receive something similar, but presumably it would have been mentioned in the Nintendo Direct if it was.

What do you think of the concept of boxed download codes?

Update: Pokeshopper shows further images including special game cartridges set for Japan:

Nintendo Europe has announced that Pokemon Red, Blue and Yellow will be coming to the Nintendo 3DS Virtual Console on February 27th. No doubt fans will want to snap these up. Pricing for the games has yet to be confirmed but I would assume they would be the same price as regular Nintendo 3DS Virtual Console games.
