Yeah, I was shocked too when I read it on Serebii. Remember that Mist Reshiram / Haze Zekrom movie 14 giveaway in Japan? Well, the first thing we hear about that event outside of Japan is that it's going to happen in the Netherlands only, at least for the time being. Now, I don't have anything against the Netherlands (is anyone here even from there to begin with?), but it's just so... random. There HAS to be something similar in North America and the rest of Europe... right?
By the way, the way this giveaway works, for anyone interested, is that you get the opposite mascot from the version you have, so White owners get Reshiram and Black owners get Abraham Lincoln... I mean Zekrom.
