You’ve heard it. Today is going to be a busy day, starting with Pokemon at 11am.
There has been many questions circulating around the internet. According to Nintendo, there will only be 250 copies given out.
Now there’s some confusion on how this event will actually work. Although it is called a “Trade-Up” program, I do not believe that we have to submit our original Pokemon Ruby or Sapphire in order to get the remake. I suppose that we will find out soon enough.

He does a great job illustrating the line, the event, and the giveaways. I love how both videos show the Pikachu shake!
