Mystery Gift is a feature that has gradually become more and more frequently used. It is commonly used to allow for the distribution of events for both Pokémon and Items and will continue to be prominently used
How to Obtain
Now, on the main menu, Mystery Gift will appear and will sport just one option at first, two if you have received a wonder card. You will usually choose the only option which goes to another menu that has three options and an exit; Get From Wireless, Get from Wi-Fi Connection & Get from InfraRed. Here is a rundown of the functions;
Get From Wireless
The Get From Wireless is the most widely used Mystery Gift feature. Whenever you go to a Nintendo Event that is giving away Pokémon or Items, it will be done over this feature. The 3DS will pick up the wireless signal that is being sent by the event machine and the Wonder Card will be sent
Get From Internet
Get from Internet is exactly what it says on the tin. Using the 3DS's Wi-Fi Internet abilities, the game connects to the Internet servers and looks for any Wonder Cards that Nintendo has put up.
Get From InfraRed
The next feature is a feature that will be used at some events, possibly replacing Slot2 distribution. Here, you can receive a Wonder Card through the InfraRed feature on the game card. This requires direct line of sight from the distribution machine.
Get From Serial Code
The next feature is the newest and provides Pokémon if you enter in a specific unique serial code. Once you enter the serial code, you will receive the special Pokémon. This works similar to the Serial Codes within the Pokémon Global Link in Generation V.
