The Pokémon Company is holding a sweepstakes over the course of the next month till the launch of X&Y. What follows is copied from Nintendo Life and will tell you what you need to get started.
Over the past weekend we reported that The Pokémon Company was teasing a special announcement; the time has come and the big news is either awesome or disappointing, depending on personal taste. The company has re-launched the "Gotta Catch 'Em All" promotion in the U.S. — sorry, Canada and the rest of the world.
This is essentially a prize hunting promotion, in which you watch videos closely for codes and follow clues — once you've passed an initial test and registered — to be entered into a sweepstakes. There'll be a fresh round of clues and challenges each week, with a number of prizes on offer. This promotion will run for four consecutive weeks, with the final segment closing on 12th October, the launch date of Pokémon X & Y.
The following prizes will be up for grabs each week.
◾One Nintendo 3DS Handheld Video Game System
◾Nine Pokemon Trading Card + Figure Box (3 Designs)
◾Twenty Black 2 White 2 Official National Pokédex & Guide
◾Sixteen Pokémon Plush Toys (4 different characters)
◾Four Pokémon X Nintendo 3DS Game Download Codes
◾Four Pokémon Y Nintendo 3DS Game Download Codes
To enter you need to watch the first video closely — below — and spot a six character code, which you then use to register on the official website (www.GottaCatchEmAll.com). Once in you can get involved in chasing down the many clues over the next four weeks; if you're in the U.S. — under-13s will need permission — then this may be worth a go. There are 3DS goodies — and others — on the line, after all!
I'm all for helping out each other here. First code in the above video is: XY1012
