if there’s two types of participating stores for the Pokemon X/Y Shiny Mega Gengar distribution? The Pokemon site says it’s free and doesn’t in any way suggest that it’s part of a larger offer, but I went into my local eb games (I’m in Canada) and they told me I had to pre-order OR/AS through them in order to get the code for the Gengar - that it was a “pre-order bonus” (I’m 99% positive that’s bullshit). I’ve pre-ordered AS on Amazon already (because that’s a lot cheaper and eb makes you pay extra for pre-orders) so they wouldn’t give me a code.
So does that mean they’re not an actual “participating” store? Does anyone know what’s going on with that? I’ve e-mailed the Pokemon company but it’ll probably take them a while to get back to me.
I would suggest getting in touch with a manager at EB Games. The Shiny Gengar is not a preorder bonus nor does it require any sort of purchase or preorder. Some people have had luck contacting Nintendo and asking for codes there.
