How do you manage to get them twice?
You can't on one cart.
Every event pokemon has a specific ID no to their Wonder Card which your game cart has stored in it's memory. The Gamestp Raikou's happens to be 59.
However since the WIN2011 Raikou is essentially the exact same one (but for people who couldn't get them from Gamestop) so they have the same ID no. 59.
So you can't get them both on one cart. Your game will see the 59 WonderCard on your game and tell you that you've already recieve that gift.
I didn't get the Gamestp Raikou on one of my carts since I assumed they would do this like they did with the Gamestp Pichu and Jirachi when they gave them out later over wifi.
So that's how I got mine.
