There is still time to track down some of the pre-order bonuses offered, especially if you live in Europe. Just remember that stores only have these pre-order goodies “while supplies last”, so get out there and search for one while you still can!
Here’s the Pokemon Omega Ruby Alpha Sapphire Pre-Order Bonus Goodies image gallery. Click on any of these image thumbnails to see the full-size photos:
Keep in mind that some stores will have pre-order bonuses left over, so be sure to sweet-talk to the clerks to convince them to give one to you if you are without a pre-order goodie.
If you haven’t done so already, here is what to look for:
UK – Primal Groudon & Primal Kyogre Figurine
By far the best of the pre-orders on offer, UK gamers who pre-order either Pokemon Omega Ruby or Pokemon Alpha Sapphire will recieve a toy figurine of the legendary Pocket Monsters who grace the two game’s cover.
If you pre-order Omega Ruby, you’ll get a Primal Groudon figure, and if you pre-order Alpha Sapphire, you will get a Primal Kyogre figure! You can also get a cool Steelbook case (depending on the bundle) as I detailed in this Pokemon Omega Ruby & Alpha Sapphire Collector’s Edition article.
UK – Torchic Keychain
In addition to the above, gamers in the United Kingdom also have access to a cool Torchic Keychain if you pre-order your copy of Pokemon Omega Ruby or Alpha Sapphire from ShopTo.
USA – Primal Groudon & Primal Kyogre Figurine
UPDATE! Walmart in the United States is now offering the same Primal Groudon & Primal Kyogre figures being found in the UK, Australia & New Zealand! Currently out of stock, so you may want to sweet talk a Walmart store worker or become friends with one to see if you can nab this figure!
USA – Mega Charizard X & Mega Charizard Y Plushie
American gamers have the next best deal… or the best deal depending on how you look at it. If you live in the United States and pre-order your copy of Pokemon Omega Ruby or Alpha Sapphire from Toys R Us, you can nab a plushie of either Mega Charizard X form (Charizard’s Mega Evolution from Pokemon X) or Mega Charizard Y (Charizard’s Mega Evolution from Pokemon Y). Sweet!
USA – Poster
American gamers who pre-order Pokemon Omega Ruby or Alpha Sapphire at GameStop, can net themselves a sweet double-sided poster for their troubles!
Canada – Poster
Canadians arent entirely without a pre-order goodie. If you pre-order from either EB Games or Videotron, as well as participating Toys R Us stores, you can snag a Hoenn Region poster!
Australia – Primal Groudon & Primal Kyogre Figurine
The same figures available in the UK are also being offered by EB Games in Australia.
New Zealand – Primal Groudon & Primal Kyogre Figurine
Ditto for New Zealand, head to EB Games to get your Primal Groudon & Primal Kyogre Figurine.
Remember that ebay and Craigslist, as well as game collecting and game trading websites, are a gold mine to find pre-order bonuses if you officially miss out on one. So don’t lose hope and good luck!
