Want free Pokémon?

54 second read


A month or so ago in the UK and Australia, Nintendo handed out codes at participating retailers, giving Pokémon X and Y players brand new Pokémon for their Pokdéxes; Magmar and Electabuzz. That promotion is now in South Africa, where you can walk in to a participating retailer and ask for one of those codes. Or, you could just be lazy and grab one right here.

Pokémon X players can get the Fire-type Pokémon Magmar when they enter their codes, while Pokémon Y players will receive the Electric-type Pokémon Electabuzz.

Both of these Pokémon are holding the item necessary to make them evolve (the Magmarizer for Magmar, and the Electirizer for Electabuzz).

And all you need to do to get a code is fill in the form you’ll find here. Codes are limited, but we have got quite a few, so fill it in, and we’ll send you a code. Easy.

    Aren’t you supposed to catch them yourself? Is Pokemon games embracing DLC? Has mister Durden built an army?

      this has been going on forever. mystery gifts are the same thing as this and those have been around since before dlc was even called that.

    No, no.

    I want a Pickachu plush toy for the six month old baby. She tries to pickup the Pickachu on the playmat, but that is only a few pictures. Any ideas?

      As listed on the terms and condition on the comp page; the competition is only available to south Africans, so you need to input a valid SA postal code.
