The Pokémon Company Support has posted a thread on their FAQ page in regards to a number of issues with the Pokémon October 2014 Newsletter distribution. Many people have yet to receive their codes via email and some that have received the email have received blank codes. Players in the United States and Canada have already had to wait a week for the demo compared to many countries in the world and they are now having to wait even longer. Nintendo has had a number issues this year releasing digital content via the Nintendo Network including the delayed release of Pokémon Bank.

Pokémon Support - Updated Posting - 10/21/14 6:04 PM PST

We believe that the issue with code images not appearing in the October Pokémon newsletter have been resolved. Users should now be able to view their code simply by reopening the original newsletter email. If this doesn't work immediately, users can click the "Having trouble viewing this email? View this email online." at the top right of the newsletter image.

Any users still not able to view their codes are encouraged to reopen a service ticket.

For users who signed up for the newsletter prior to 10/20 and still have not received it, we ask that you be patient.

Because of the large volume of newsletters sent, there could be some delays as they make their way through the various internet providers and networks, leading to some users receiving their newsletters before other users.

We believe that all newsletters should deliver within the next few days. We recommend that you check your junk email folders and again make sure that pokemon@email.pokemon.com has been added to your safe senders list.

I haven't received my Alpha Ruby/Omega Sapphire demo code - Original Message

It has come to our attention that some users have not yet received their copy of the newsletter, and that some who have are reporting that the code for the Alpha Ruby/Omega Sapphire Demo is not appearing properly in the message.

Because of the large volume of newsletters sent, there could be some delays as they make their way through the various internet providers and networks, leading to some users receiving their newsletters before other users.

We’re working closely with our service partner to resolve the issue of non-displaying codes and hope to see the issue resolved shortly. This should not require us to re-send the message as once the error is corrected users will then see the code appear in their original newsletter email.

We will update this article as we receive information, and we encourage you to click the subscribe link so that you are notified as we update this issue.

For users who didn't subscribe to the Pokemon.com newsletter in time, check out some of the other ways you can receive a demo code at Nintendo.com

Thank you, Pokémon Support

  • Get a code with your purchase of the new Pokémon Art Academy game (out Oct. 24) when you buy from Nintendo eShop on your Nintendo 3DS or 2DS system.
  • You’ll also get a code with your purchase of one of two classic Pokémon games coming to the Virtual Console service on Nintendo eShop: the Pokémon Puzzle Challenge game (out Nov. 6) or the Pokémon Trading Card Game (out Nov. 13). You'll find your free demo code on your eShop receipt (download codes available while supplies last).
  • Codes will be emailed the week of Oct. 31 to select Nintendo customers with Nintendo Network IDs who have signed up to receive promotional emails from Nintendo.
  • Codes will also be distributed during the holiday mall tour from Nov. 24‒Dec. 21 at 16 different locations throughout the nation.

To celebrate the launch of Pokémon Omega Ruby and Pokémon Alpha Sapphire, beginning on November 1st, 2014, a new campaign called Pokémon Scrap (ポケモンスクラップ) will begin. Pokémon Scrap is a vouchers system and cards are included with certain physical real world Pokémon products which can be redeemed for virtual item unlocks that can be used in ORAS. Players can begin to collect the required scrap card serials starting on November 1st, 2014 but they can only be entered for redeemable ORAS codes from December 1st, 2014 until April 30th, 2015. Players can begin to collect over 50 different Scrap Cards. Players need to register on the official campaign site and enter their email address in order to participate.

How to Use Pokémon Scrap Cards

On the back of each scrap card is a unique serial code that can be entered on the official Pokémon Scrap campaign site. One you register the serial number, the next tier level is unlocked. Not every tier level contains an unlockable gift though. However, you won't get just one mythical Pokémon. As you collect the scraps, you'll receive up to three mythical Pokémon and five items to help you on your adventure! At each gift tier, a unique Pokémon Omega Ruby and Pokémon Alpha Sapphire serial code will be given which player can use to unlock the gift in the game.

img

To avoid confusion, 0 (zero), 1 (one), B (Letter), I (Letter), O (Letter) and V (Letter) are not used in any Pokémon Omega Ruby and Pokémon Alpha Sapphire serial codes. If a code is incorrectly entered ten times, players will be locked out temporarily for 24 hours before they can try again.

img

Unlockable Gifts

Each gift needs a certain number of scrap card codes entered to unlock. Shaymin requires 1, Nugget requires 3, Super Potion requires 5, Keldeo requires 7, Luxuy Ball requires 10, Rare Candy requires 13, Victini requires 16 and the Master Ball requires 20 codes.

Eligible Items

The following product will contain Pokémon Scrap cards with serial numbers. Each product contains only 1 serial code.

  • Gaia Volcano and Tidal Storm XY TCG Booster Packs - Available starting on December 13th, 2014
  • PokéPan ORAS Strawberry - Specially marked packages starting November 1st, 2014
  • 3D Pencil Case - Available in early December

XY Will Not Receive a Patch Updating for Full ORAS Compatibility

In an interview with nTower, Junichi Masuda revealed there would be no patch for Pokémon X and Y that would add compatibility for new Mega Evolutions that will be introduced in Pokémon Omega Ruby and Pokémon Alpha Sapphire. It should be noted that there is no technical reason for not adding compatibility into X and Y via a patch as all the infrastructure to patch the games is available as its the same game engine and generation and there has already been two patches for X and Y which shows it can be done. Nintendo and GAME FREAK have always required people purchase the latest Pokémon games to play in the current tournaments and this is probably the only reason there will not be a patch.

nTower Interview with Junichi Masuda and Shigeru Ohmori Translation

nTower: Will Pokémon Omega Ruby and Alpha Sapphire be compatible with the games Pokémon X and Y? Can the new Mega Evolutions be used in the Kalos Region (for example with an update)?

Masuda: We do not plan to release a patch for Pokémon X and Y to update the games that effect. There is a separation of what you can experience in Pokémon X and Y and in Pokémon Omega Ruby and Alpha Sapphire. Therefore, we want to separate the games to that effect.

Pokémon Global Link Changes for X and Y

On October 15th, 2014, the Japanese Pokémon Global Link website added a page to discuss some of the upcoming changes that will affect X and Y with the release of ORAS.
