Indulge in your Poké-passion with special Alola region Pokémon figurines or a gorgeously illustrated artbook.
Pokémon Centers in Japan are offering up some sweet incentives for people interested in placing pre-orders for Pokémon Sun and Pokémon Moon, the next generation of Pokémon games set to be released for the Nintendo 3DS on November 18.
First, anyone who pre-orders one of the games will receive a Pokémon Center original figurine–Solgaleo if they order the Sun version, and Lunala if they order the Moon version. However, anyone who pre-orders two of the games, regardless of whether it’s one of each version or two of the same version, will receive a special artbook featuring lush illustrations of the new generation of Pokémon in the Alola region. The front cover of the artbook is picture below:

The artbook will also feature comments by the folks at Game Freak, the longtime developer of the Pokémon series of games.
These two promotions are valid for pre-orders at any Japanese Pokémon Center, Pokémon Store, Pokémon Center Online, or Pokémon Expo Gym Official Shop. While the main drawback is that you must presumably be in Japan and understand Japanese in order to pre-order the games and enjoy them once they’ve been released, we’re guessing that won’t stop dedicated Poké Maniacs from getting their hands on the special items!
