Pokemon Scarlet and Violet preorder bonuses
While no retailers have announced physical goodies as preorder bonuses, it’s pretty common for Nintendo Switch exclusives to have bonuses linked to specific retailers. So, at this time, it’s not a huge deal where you decide to preorder your copy.
That said, there are purchase bonuses for Scarlet and Violet. If you purchase Scarlet or Violet by February 28, 2023, you’ll get a special Pikachu with the Mystery Gift function. This Pikachu knows Fly and its Tera Type (a new feature in the games) is Flying, too.
If you purchase a digital copy of Scarlet or Violet from the eShop, you’ll get the Adventure Set, which comes with the following in-game goodies to help get you started:
- Potion (10)
- Full Heal (5)
- Revive (3)
- Ether (3)
- Rare Candy (1)
- Nugget (1)
Lastly, those who preorder the Pokemon Scarlet and Violet Double Pack will receive a pair of codes that can be redeemed in game for 100 Poke Balls each.
Pokemon Scarlet and Violet officially kick off the ninth Pokémon generation. As with any new mainline Pokemon game, there are three new starters to pick from: the grass-type kitten, Sprigatito; fire Pokemon Fuecoco, which look like a chili pepper-shaped alligator; and Quaxly, a water-type duck Pokemon with a poofy pompadour haircut. Pokemon Scarlet and Violet’s Legendary Pokemon have been confirmed as Koraidon and Miradon. Even more new and returning Pokemon are sure to be confirmed ahead of Scarlet and Violet’s release.
