Event item

An event item is a special type of item exclusively available via event distribution. Prior to Generation VI, they are usually used to obtain Mythical Pokémon.

They are often available via local event distributions, but with the advent of Nintendo Wi-Fi Connection in Generation IV they are also often available this way as well. From Generation III onward, they are usually available via Mystery Gift. The Eon Ticket is available through other methods in both generations it appears in, being available via e-Reader card and mixing records in Generation III and via StreetPass in Generation VI (although it is also available via Mystery Gift as well in both generations).
