One of my favorite things to keep an eye out for when a new game gets revealed are the preorder bonuses. I can still remember back when Diamond and Pearl were released, I got the Dialga and Palkia DS styluses at Gamestop. I still have them to this day!

Below are some of the various preorder bonuses being offered for Brilliant Diamond and Shining Pearl. Are you planning on preordering to receive any of these bonuses? Or do you not really care about what comes with your preorders?

General Preorder Bonuses


Target Preorder Bonus - Journal


Gamestop Preorder Bonus - Pin Set


Walmart Preorder Bonus - Pen


BestBuy Preorder Bonus - Keychain


PokemonCenter Preorder Bonus - Plush Keychain


UK Amazon Preorder Bonus - Steelbook

The metal keychains in the starters’ original sprite designs are so cute and I definitely wouldn’t mind having that! But I’ll probably just download the game at midnight as usual (especially now that I’m in a timezone that will get it before most people). The pens are also cute. :D

Same here. I don't generally buy physical games much.

I’ve got these preordered from Shopto, which offer figurines! I have figures going all the way back to Platinum so getting a Dialga and Palkia for my shelf is highly appealing, haha. Unless the price discrepancy is huge or I have no other choice I will always go physical.

As an aside, my mind reels at the thought of paying more money for a license as opposed to less money for an actual thing that you own…interesting times we live in, for digital to be a preference!

Already pre-ordered SP from an online shop I use often.
I prefer physical copies if possible.

This 100%. I have some friends who pay $30+ more for new games just to play it at midnight/without changing disc. Really don't get it. Also saddens me to think of a day when gaming goes solely digital and PS Store, Xbox Marketplace, eShop etc have a monopoly on pricing.

Apparently people in Korea are getting a Shiny Zacian and Zamazenta, which... I'd rather have instead of pins or notebooks or 50000 pokéballs, to be fair. Hope that promotion gets extended to everywhere.
Yeah I saw that today... I'm so jealous.

The stores here weren't offering any store specific pre-order bonuses originally.
They are now offering a code for a full set of apriballs.
Kinda meh, but hey apriballs confirmed I guess xD
