Head To Toys R Us On Pokémon Day For Freebies

27th February 2016 has been named as Pokémon Day, the date marking 20 years since the first Pokémon games launched in Japan.

Across North America, The Pokémon Company International has teamed up with Toys R Us to celebrate the occasion. Those that visit participating stores can receive special foil Pokémon TCG cards from the new Generations expansion that feature Pikachu and Magikarp, a Pokémon activity book, and a poster of the original 151 Pokémon.

The retailer will also have an exclusive Generations-themed folio binder available for those that purchase the new expansion, with everything being available while supplies last.

          you guys get some pretty cool stuff, I cant remember exactly what it was but i think it was when ORAS came out ya’ll got something I was interested in that was better than the US, but you are right, we do tend to get better special consoles, like latter this month we will get the new 3DS w/ faceplates and ya’ll only get 2DSs, so I can see your pain hun.

          You had the wireless Singstar microphones for the Playstation. Can you imagine seeing all the commercials and even the intro to the game and everyone using something you can not get in the US?

          What? Youve gotten be kidding. Europe is being treated like royalty for last few years especially from Nintendo. Fatal Frame Limited PHYSICAL edition, non retailer exclusive amiibo, amiibo first! From last gen on Wii you guys got a lot of Japanese games that were never brought over. Hyrule Warriors LE, Mario Kart 8 LE, you guys got the N3ds regularly for almost a year before we got the regular one. I don’t really need to go on.. lol

        February 5, 2016 at 4:26 am

        FYI, I’d rather live in a country with illegal firearms everyday. Americans are f***ing stupid for making guns legal. That’s why so many of you f***ers die, because you shoot willy nilly.

        We enjoy not having school massacres every five minutes though.
        Plus, we like to help people not kill them.
        Good luck with not being shot.

      Consider yourselves lucky. I live in Canada where we get nearly bupkiss. I’m lucky the Mew promo was brought here, but we missed out on Hoopa. Diancie was only available as a wifi mystery gift for three days (six months after ORAS was released). Holo legendaries, special codes for Heracross and Pinsir. We got none of that here. You guys get almost everything USA gets.

          I call b******t. I live in America and had red blue and yellow for the gbc so I know for a FACT those 3 were released here. Green is the only one that wasn’t. Other games we got lacked certain features as well specifically crystal not allowing for the capture of celibi. P****d me off when I found out it worked in Japan copies but not US like why the fuck not? Greedy b*****ds lol

            Japan got Red and Green initially, but they then got an enhanced version (bugfixes, better sound/graphics, ect…) called Blue. The engine of their Blue version was mixed with the Exclusive Pokemon lists and wild encounter tables of Red and Green to make our localized Red and Blue versions. About the only significant thing you’re missing from Green is the original Red/Green layout of the Cerulean Cave.

    In Japan’s defence, they were the ones that came out with the game.. They’re just keeping a little something for themselves out of all the other ones they shared with us.
