(Updated) GAME Stores to Distribute X & Y Goodies in the UK

Updated to add promotion end date and Pokémon details.

Wait a minute… GAME is still alive and well?!? Seems like it, since The Pokémon Company International has once again announced it's teaming up with the UK-based specialist retailer to once again offer a distribution event promoting Pokémon X and Y and the new XY Trading Card Game Expansion. Colour me surprised.

From Friday 4th April until the 30th September, anyone who brings their 3DS into any GAME store across the United Kingdom, with a copy of Pokémon X or Y inside, can claim a free Pokémon for their game. Players with Pokémon X can receive Magmar free upon request, whilst those with Pokémon Y copies can claim Electabuzz. Additionally, both will be holding their respective Trade Evolution item – the Magmarizer and Electirizer respectively – meaning these free Pokémon can be traded to a trusted friend to obtain their evolved forms – Magmortar and Electivire!

Sources claim both Pokémon will be offered at Level 30. Electabuzz has the ability Vital Spirit and the moves Low Kick, Shock Wave, Light Screen & Thunder Punch. Magmar has the ability Vital Spirit and the moves Smokescreen, Fire Spin, Confuse Ray & Fire Punch.

As if that wasn't enough, there's a bonus for fans of the Trading Card game too. At each store while stocks last, you'll be able to get a Pokémon TCG: XY special sampling pack containing a card from the new expansion along with a special "holographic" Pikachu card. Who doesn't love free stuff?
