Pokedex Skins

Somebody should put in the Pokedex skin of the 3 starters that you can get from the global link for free. I could give it a try but I don't know how to do it properly and I might screw it up and I've heard moderaters in the past (on other wikia though) that you should just leave it to someone who's had experience so that they can do it well.

Play To Befriend a Pokémon! Eeveelutions

I know that they were supposed to be available on May 5, but I don't think they are available yet. I have checked promotions, and even double checked that mine registered as saved on May 4, but I still see no sign of it. --SnorlaxMonster 14:06, 12 May 2011 (UTC)

IIRC, it was only stated that the game would stop working on the 5th with no indication of when they would be available other than "soon" as stated by a notice on the site sent out on the 5th itself.--MisterE13 15:21, 12 May 2011 (UTC)

Customizing the C-Gear

How do you change the skin of the C-Gear once you have a new skin? Cmlobue 02:01, 18 May 2011 (UTC)cmlobue

Put a Pokémon to sleep, log on to PGL, click "Customize", select the skin you want, click "Customize Game", wake up your Pokémon and the skin should be changed. PkmnChmp5 21:40, 23 September 2011 (UTC)

Pikachu and Minccino C-Gear skins

The article says they're available on the English PGL, but I don't see them, nor did I see them when it was added. Is there some trick to doing it? --SnorlaxMonster 15:28, 4 June 2011 (UTC)

They're not available, which is why everything about them is 'Unknown' or ???. Just like the Korean Pikachu skin, they're being prepared but haven't been released yet. Bluesun 05:21, 5 June 2011 (UTC)

"This skin was released for an unknown reason, for an unknown period of time." - this makes it sound like it has already been released. Is it that the data for the skin is on the European language and Korean sites, but have not yet been made available? --SnorlaxMonster 05:38, 5 June 2011 (UTC)

Hm, perhaps the wording is a bit... at the time those were added there were other future promotions dated as if written after release, so I copied the same wording. And yes, that's right. Bluesun 15:43, 5 June 2011 (UTC)

Pikachu C-Gear skin password cracked

GameFAQs user DTAC25 cracked the password to the Pikachu C-Gear skin. The knowledge of the password being "PikachuCGear" (no quotes, case sensitive) will now be common knowledge before any official promotion reveals it. Givenn how simple the password is, no wonder it got cracked...--Shiningpikablu252 15:54, 9 July 2011 (UTC)

2011 Pokemon Wold Championships C-Gear Skin

[1] [2] Can someone add this? The password is WorldsCGear. XVuvuzela2010X 16:47, 4 August 2011 (UTC)

It's already in the article, just hidden. I think they're waiting for an image of it? - Blazios talk 16:51, 4 August 2011 (UTC)
Here it is:

About the Audino skin...

According to Serebii, it is available in the United States only. This is also supported by the fact that there is no mention of it on my (UK) Global link. XVuvuzela2010X 17:06, 4 August 2011 (UTC)

Aren't the UK and US Global Links the same one? They're both [3]. I heard it was on temporarily, then taken down. Maybe it's based on local time like the Worlds one? (P.S. It's not on my one either, and I'm from the UK) - Blazios talk 17:08, 4 August 2011 (UTC)

It seems to be indeed based on the location you set back when you make the account. Not in US? No Audino skin for you. I didn't set my location as US either, and I don't see the promotion or even the announcement for the Audino skin.Magnezone 03:01, 6 August 2011 (UTC)

Doesn't appear for Australia either. Can anyone test Canada? --SnorlaxMonster 03:29, 6 August 2011 (UTC)

Zilch in the great north. No mention at all. Luxraychu 00:48, 18 August 2011 (UTC)


Is it possible to add a second Bulbanews article for the European release of the Zoroark skin? I'm not sure if the current template allows it. - Blazios talk 20:29, 23 September 2011 (UTC)


The Victini C-Gear skin is avalabe to at least english accounts now, but, not being a computer genius, I have no idea how to add that in. Could someone either tell me how or do it themselves? Sukineko123 21:46, 4 November 2011 (UTC)


The Décor section for the Porygon2 doll has "kop=unique" in the Japanese section for some reason. I'm not sure what was intended though... --Enervation 02:25, 5 November 2011 (UTC)

Blastoise C-Gear Skin

Although they haven't officially revealed the password for the Blastoise C-Gear Skin which was released to European accounts today, I have discovered it to be EUPGL112011 after I spotted the similarity between the two passwords for the other Kanto Starter C-Gear Skins. I would have added this directly into this page but, knowing Bulbapedia Policy about non-officially confirmed information, I decided instead to put it here instead first so that someone else can double-check the information then perhaps add it to this article as well as even write a Bulbanews Article about this. Lauraac2110 10:17, 10 November 2011 (UTC)


I know the password for Poison Jab Croagunk. It's IGNRuggedMountain--K4kirin 02:54, 11 November 2011 (UTC)

Croagunk event is happening in Brazil too. I believe that is happening over all the America.Maverick Hunter 13:10, 12 November 2011 (UTC)
I think it may actually be everywhere except Europe. Someone in Malaysia has gotten it too. --SnorlaxMonster 13:38, 12 November 2011 (UTC)
Just a bit of addition regarding the Croagunk C-Gear skin, it has been released internationally, and it seems that the password for UK is used for the international release. Someone in Serebii whose account has the country set to Indonesia was able to obtain it by using the UK password.Magnezone 04:12, 18 November 2011 (UTC)

I live in Thailand and still able to receive it with the code I posted. Oh, and one more thing, why is it special? You can always teach a poison jab TM to any croagunk?--K4kirin 01:35, 30 November 2011 (UTC)

Winter Decor

There's nothing here about yesterdays release ofthe Winter Decor. Vuvuzela2010 Δ 08:18, 19 November 2011 (UTC)

I'll get on it when I can access them for the first time (which is in about half an hour). - Blazios talk 10:07, 19 November 2011 (UTC)

Crustle skin's Japanese name

Can someone double check that 「ちかいそ! イワパレス」 is correct? If it was 「ちかいぞ! イワパレス」, it would translate to "Close! Iwaparesu", whereas I can't seem to find anything for 「ちかいそ」 that makes sense. --SnorlaxMonster 13:44, 13 January 2012 (UTC)

My bad; it's that one (ちかいぞ!). Good thing I take screenshots. -tc²₆tc26- 14:11, 13 January 2012 (UTC)

Another Lucario promotion?

Since my Global Link account is registered to Singapore, I can't really call this "international" until I know better. There's an ongoing promotion for a Bullet Punch Lucario from 1 March 2012 to 25 May 2012, with the password to be retrieved from the EUROGAMER website. How come this promotion hasn't been added yet? In fact, I don't think Bulbanews has even reported it yet... Haxorus 07:32, 2 March 2012 (UTC)

International is used as a collective term for North America, Europe, Australia and New Zealand. And yes, it's already in both. You haven't looked hard I'm guessing. -tc²₆tc26- 07:36, 2 March 2012 (UTC)
Hmm, it's there now. Odd, it definitely wasn't there sometime ago. But never mind. It's up now, that's what matters. - unsigned comment from Haxorus (talkcontribs)

Other Downloads

How do you get these? -- Pringles 00:26, 20 June 2012 (UTC)

Most of them are no longer active. You can see the start/end dates of each promotion here. A few of the promotions are continual, like the musicals and the pokedex skin (the ONLY pokedex skin for some reason) But some are over. PowerPlantRaichu (talk) 05:30, 17 July 2012 (UTC)
Actually, the ones listed under other downloads are permanent, so none of them are no longer active. --SnorlaxMonster 16:56, 13 September 2012 (UTC)

Porygon Z C-Gear

This is an ongoing (july 15) promotion I didnt see in the list. The password is PORYZCGEAR2012

PowerPlantRaichu (talk) 07:13, 15 July 2012 (UTC)

2012 World Championship C-Gear Skin

password: WCSCGEAR2012 Forgot to sign PowerPlantRaichu (talk) 08:36, 10 August 2012 (UTC)

Keldeo, Reshiram and Zekrom Dolls

I added a section for the International promo, but as the international promo adds Keldeo, should it have it's own box instead, or keep it in with the Japanese Reshiram & Zekrom promo? Pyrii (talk) 16:54, 13 September 2012 (UTC)

Also need to find a way to make it so custom images can be used in the template if possible. For things like multi-item rewards. Image for this event: [4] Pyrii (talk) 19:21, 13 September 2012 (UTC)
Nevermind, I looked at the template again and realised the image= variable could do it.

Hugh's Pokedex C-Gear skin and New C-Gear skin

What about the Japanese Halloween C-Gear skin and normal C-Gear skin for Black 2 and White 2 that's on Bulbanews right now? -Groudon 60 (talk) 21:11, 15 September 2012 (UTC)

Korean Pikachu, Black Reshiram and White Reshiram Dolls

Anyone knows the password for this dolls? Maverick Hunter (talk)


Pokémon are in regular Poké Balls, right? Marked +-+-+ (talk) 18:54, 31 July 2013 (UTC)

The Pokémon received from promotions are transfered to the Entree Forest, just like the Pokémon received from non-promotions. Therefore they can be captured in any type of Poké Ball. Lady Ariel 20:29, 31 July 2013 (UTC)
Oh. Might be good idea to mention this somewhere on the page... Marked +-+-+ (talk) 06:38, 1 August 2013 (UTC)
