Code Begging happens when many Miiverse users beg for video game codes, such as the Super Smash Bros. 4 for 3DS demo code, the Pokémon X&Y Diancie code, or the Super Smash Bros. 4 Mewtwo DLC code. Many users also beg for game codes from indie developers.
Super Smash Bros. 4 Demo Code Begging
Super Smash Bros. 3DS Code Begging
On the day 12/9/2014 (or 9/12 for Americans), Nintendo announced that a Smash Bros 3DS Demo would be available for some Platinum Club Nintendo users. Naturally, many people wanted to try this out, because Super Smash Bros. is an extremely popular game.
However, some people didn't have Platinum Club Nintendo, yet they were still really desperate to get the demo. On that day, 80 percent of all posts were people begging for demo codes, and occasionally people making fun of people begging for the demo codes.
Then the demo finally became available 09/19 and users stopped begging.
Super Smash Bros. 4 Mewtwo
On April 15th, 2015, Mewtwo Codes were given out to people who had registered both Super Smash Bros. for Wii U/3DS on Club Nintendo. Similarly to the demo code begging, users in the Super Smash Bros. for Wii U/3DS Community and Wii Fit U Community were begging for the code. Most users were annoyed by the begging, and many users did not succeed. On April 28th, 2015, Mewtwo was available to everyone via the eShop.
- This only happened a couple of months before the Diancie begging in the XY Community.
- Many users got banned for begging/giving the codes.
