Oh, the Pokemanity!
So, last time, I had to go through quite an ordeal to download an exclusive Pikachu-colored Pichu from GameStop. This time, again through GameStop, Nintendo was offering the legendary Jirachi. Thankfully, there were no unanticipated difficulties. Only the usual shame of being a grown man standing alone in a GameStop store and playing Pokemon on his Nintendo DS. Did I mention that I actually have to download these things four times to my four separate copies of Pokemon? Yes, thank you, I am hardcore. And yes, I have become painfully well-acquainted with the twenty-second start-up sequence for these games. The worst part is that I just found out that Nintendo is now making the Pichu download available over wi-fi for anybody who missed the GameStop event, so I need never have embarrassed myself (twice) for that thing. No word yet on whether Jirachi will be offered the same way, but I really do hope that this is the beginning of the end for my (Pokemon-related) public humiliations.
