Pokémon X And Y Pre-orders In Japan Come With Mini-Pokémon Figures

By Sato . August 14, 2013 . 11:17pm


The Pokémon Center is known for selling exclusive Pokémon goodies like the Eevee Nintendo 3DS XL which they had a lottery for and a very cool Charizard Edition 3DS XL. In their latest announcement, they show off the exclusive bonuses they’ll be giving away for those who pre-order Pokémon X and Y from Pokémon Centers in Japan.


Pre-orders can be done at any of Japan’s seven Pokémon Center stores located throughout the country.



Pre-order Pokémon X and you’ll get exclusive clear file folders, including one with an image of Xerneas. Additionally, the game will also come with a mini-Xerneas figurine.




Pokémon Y pre-orders will also come with exclusive clear file folders featuring different artwork. It also includes a mini-Yveltal figurine.



Future Pokémon Masters who would like to have best of both worlds can pre-order both versions and get an exclusive Pokémon X and Y A4-sized “World Art” book. According to the Pokémon Company, the art book will be filled with plenty of exclusive features and artwork, including a cover image that was designed by Game Freak specifically for this limited edition item. The special pre-order for both versions will also come with a CD featuring three tracks from Pokémon X and Pokémon Y.


Those who make any pre-orders at a Pokémon Center store will get free shipping as long as they make the order prior to October 6th. Pre-orders are currently available, but the availability of the bonus material will be limited, so they urge fans to make their orders as soon as possible.


Pokémon X and Pokémon Y is slated for a worldwide release on October 12th for Nintendo 3DS.

    If not the art book for the A-spec version, then I hope a CD sampler with the mini figurine.

    • Notquitesure?

      How about some remixes…….. maybe not the right place for this (walks away):)

  • Hmm… and the US gets…?

    • Chris Yuen

      most probably Gamestop-exclusive pre-order bonuses…if there’s any. That’s the sad truth. Sigh.

      • VietKnight

        So far Gamestop has the double sided poster and I think there is one more poster but unsure

    • Prieto_o101

      Hopefully we’ll get something too. Now to play the waiting game.

    • ShawnOtakuSomething

      a crap mini poster

  • piichan

    I hope the U.S. and Asia releases get something like this.

  • celery

    That art book. Oh my gosh. There has never been an art book for a main-series Pokemon game. I really, really need this. Like how a fish needs water. Oh my Arceus.

  • Detrimont

    i want a mega-mawile mini figure

  • Auvers

    I really want the artbook I hope it’s not a JP exclusive.

  • Mrgrgr and Unacceptable World

    Welp, i guess by now the special version have been sold out.T_T

  • ShawnOtakuSomething

    UK and JP get the good pre-orders. :/ but the states: Gamestop :Oh you like pokemon? heres a mini poster.

  • Shadowman

    I want a physical copy of the Soundtrack.

  • Junko Enoshima

    How come Nintendo hardly ever releases pre-order bonuses over here when other companies, such as Atlus, do it all the time?

    • Zero_Destiny

      Hhhmmmm if “here” is the United States, they do a lot of pre-order deals with GameStop. Usually they gave away little gloss art pamphlets for games you can order there. Sometimes they give out DL codes like for Kid Icarus too.

    • TheSegaMan

      It costs more money apparently. But seeing as Atlus has less money that Nintendo, there really isn’t any excuse as to why they cant.

    • Suicunesol

      They didn’t? I recall Nintendo including a Ho-Oh figurine (while supplies last) with the G/S remakes, as well as art slip sets with B/W when they came out.

  • TheSegaMan

    I really doubt Nintendo would actually release these pre-order bonuses in America. That art book is calling my name, but it sadly wont happen. The most we are getting is a map, which you get by pre-ordering at Gamestop. That is still nice and all, but I would have preferred these.

  • Will Jay

    Actually, they’re tiny little model kits, not solid figures.

    Either way what the fuck I want an artbook and knowing Nintendo we won’t get it.

  • Learii

    no fair japan always get the cool stuffs lol

  • Jesse Torres

    I want a preorder bonus too.

  • Presea

    I really would like that artbook. And clear folders. And figurines. What nice pre-order bonuses. <3

  • Noor Mahmoud

    I remember when preordering both Ruby and Sapphire scored me tshirts, collector’s coins, tin cases, and more.

  • YoshEE

    sigh hope GS will include the figures in few week :(
