UPDATE: While it was initially reported as only Best Buy having this deal, it appears that Amazon will also be selling the Pokemon Omega Ruby and Alpha Sapphire Dual Pack. Also, it should be noted that this is a U.S. only deal (sorry, Canada).


Pokemon Omega Ruby and Alpha Sapphire

Were you the type of person who bought both versions of Pokemon when you were a kid? I know I was. Well, Best Buy has the deal for you. They’ll be selling a store exclusive Pokemon Omega Ruby and Alpha Sapphire “Dual Pack” which contains both versions of the upcoming remakes.

The price of the Dual Pack is $79.98, which is what it would cost to buy both game individually at $39.99. Aside from just getting both games, people who pick up the Dual Pack will also get a pair of download codes for 100 Potions each, which actually sounds pretty useless all things considered. I don’t think I’ve ever used 100 Potions in a Pokemon game before, I usually switch to Super Potions around the third Gym or so and never look back. I suppose you could still get something out of them.

    200 potions will not mitigate the fact that we aren’t getting steelbook cases.

      Not getting steelbook cases, or figures. Nope, yet again, we’re getting posters. I don’t care if they’re the best quality posters in the world, I don’t have room for posters, and I don’t really want any. :/

      Toys R Us has Charizard X/Y plushie preorder bonuses as well, but they aren’t exclusive to pre-orders so whats the point.

    • Tara

      Yeah, I already have the Mega Charizard X and Mega Charizard Y plushes from the Pokemon Center. (I need to get the regular Charizard still, but that’s another story.) I’m with you, though, I really wanted those steelbooks… or even the figures. Of course, we know that the steelbooks with nothing else will be selling for twice the price of the games on eBay soon after release. The figures may or may not turn up. Bleh. v_v;
