Of course I wouldn't know if pokemon comes out in something besides Japanese or english where you live to start with...
Well yeah, but they take loads of time to deliver to India, wheras Play-Asia is just neighbouring (China) and takes less time.

I was told by one of cashiers at Gamestop that they personally are doing a download for Victini if you preorder, but he was also being confusing. XD They may also put up bonuses at the last minute--took forever for the bonus Cloud outfit for Duodecim promo to get put on-site, even though the SE announced it at least two weeks before.

Hmmm..most likely only if you are actually there in person *sigh* To me it's not truly a pre-order as much if you can actually go right there and get it, it's more of a hold. Where as with an order it is shipped to you 6.6

Okay well that was a bit harsh. But honestly, a guide? I mean yeah the guides can be kinda cool to own and look at every now and then but it's not like you're really using it to get around every single step and corner of the game. If I'm getting a gift I'd rather something I can actually use like a stylus or case. (Wishes I had enough money to buy the bundle with the DSi and case!) or a figurine or keychain or something to show off instead. I've only gotten 2 guides before though. One for D/P and for HG/SS and that was only for the comprehensive pokedex in the back so when looking for movesets on my competitive team I wouldn't have to look up their moveset on Serebii and Smogon and could do so away fro the computer.

Also, how is the Victini and pre-order?! They're going to be giving them away to anyone that comes and buys their game within like the first week. It's a downloadable event just like the beasts! They're not going to sit there and be like hey you pre-ordered! Step aside and recieve this Pokemon that nobody else can get while I brodcast it wirelessly~ :D. :/

Plus it's being given out via Wifi at the same time. So it's not really exclusive. The Liberty Pass you get from Gamestop isn't going to say Gamestop on the Pass and I doubt they're actually giving you a Victini as just the pokemon itself instead of the pass.

I put my money on TRU's deal. I just pray Gamestop won't turn around and announce that they will be giving away Reshiram/Zekrom figures. Even though it's a bit late, you never know.

Well, yes I do use the guide to actually um, guide me at certain parts. Not every step but there are areas where I get a bit stuck. Plus it is nice to know if my chance to get an item is only a one shot dealie that will die if I don't get it at a certain time, or something I have to go all the way back to an early town to get ah la, the King's Rock -.-

I will not be going to a downloadable event simply because I can never get to one where I live so I would hope they have all gone to wifi at this point. However, I just lately got wifi at all, as there are no free hotspots where I live, so anything that was on wifi before now is lost to me anyway :P. Yay?

I was disappointed in the lack of any little toys or goodies from gamestop. I don't care much for guides (overpriced when I can just pull up gamefaqs on my phone/iPad/computer whenever I need it). When I made my preorder I asked about any little bonuses and they said the in store events were as far as it was going with the beasts and celebi, which I guess makes sence considering they activate something in the new games.

It seems a shame the lack of toys, what with pokedolls being so ..everywhere in Japan. It wouldn't take much to maybe give us a B/W themed Pikachu or something like it :)

I'm waiting for the day to arrive where they give you a free DSi when you preorder pokemon games. One day maybe?

Or a McDonald's? I think they have free WiFi as well...

And like I said, he wasn't being incredibly clear about it when he mentioned it. I said it was supposed to be a WiFi event and he simply said they were doing it there. Of course, they also made it sound like that for the other extras, too... 'Course I preordered anyway because it's nice to know I don't have to worry about getting there and it being sold out.

I preordered and didn't expect any free gift. The last time I made a pre-order I was promised both the Lugia figurine and the Ho-oh one (I got both HG and SS) but when I went to get them and my games, they were out. They even said they were getting a shipment in later that day of more. Never happened.

=D So yeah, I wasn't really expecting any gift. Heck, the games are my gift! YAY GIFT!

=^^= Nya

Our McDonald's actually doesn't, at least it doesn't the times I tried :P. Sneaking around looking for one that isn't locked was pretty shady of me I admit, but now I have my own so yay!

I got a toy before, what can I say, I'm spoiled with all the fancy extras :3
