Pokémon Surprise Announcement Is For A Pokémon Code Hunt



The surprise Pokémon announcement teased for this morning isn’t for a videogame, it’s for a website— In order to access the website, you’ll need to enter the following code, displayed in the video above: XY1012.


Upon entering the site, you’ll be asked to sign up for an account, which will make you eligible for a Pokémon code hunt of sorts. From now until October 12th, The Pokémon Company will be hiding codes across the net, each of which will unlock one of the Pokéballs on the site.


Each ball contains a Pokémon, a digital gift, and a chance to win a prize, which includes items like a Nintendo 3DS XL, the Pokémon X and Pokémon Y games and more.
