Pre-order games may be hit or miss depending on what is included. You may or may not find some great freebies bundled with the latest game deals. It’s best to look at physical items as part of the pack though, as you’ll then get something tangible, as opposed to digital items or in-game skins.
That’s exactly what you get when you pre-order the Pokemon Brilliant Diamond and Pokemon Shining Pearl double packs for Nintendo Switch. The $120 kit includes not only both games, but also an exclusive pen collection featuring three partner Pokemon – Turtwig, Chimchar, and Piplup. All of them are properly themed and look great! Double pack pre-orders also include free shipping and should arrive on or around release date. You have September 9 to September 15 to score bonus points on pre-orders, so get in if you want them!
If you don’t already know, Pokemon Brilliant Diamond and Shining Pearl are reimagined versions of the original Pokemon Diamond and Pearl games, only this time they are playable on Nintendo Switch! These two separate but related games take place in the Sinnoh region, with the player becoming the Champion of the local Pokemon League. You will have the option to choose one of three starter Pokemon, including Turtwig, Chimchar, or Piplup. All of them are super adorable!
Exclusive Pokemon for each title also exist. Pokemon Brilliant Diamond players will encounter the legendary Pokemon Dialga, while Shining Pearl players will face Palkia. The double pack includes both games in one set, so you don’t have to chase duplicates. However, they are available separately if you don’t want both or if you want a cheaper option!
Between now and September 15, when you pre-order the Brilliant Diamond and Shining Pearl duo from Walmart, you’ll receive an exclusive set of pens. There are three pens, one for each starter Pokemon. You can display them proudly in your game room, by your console, or just use them as regular pens – anything that washes your ink away! Pre-orders are available for $120 with free shipping and pickup on or close to the release date. Act early if you want exclusive pens!
