Freebies, accessories, merch, movies and more!
Happy Pokmon Day! Yep, I had no idea this was a thing, either. Nevertheless, it turns out that 27th February marks 24 years since the launch of Pokmon Red and Green in Japan so a handful of events and offers are running a to celebrate.
Starting off at the Nintendo Official UK Store, you can enter the voucher code ‘TEAMBLUE’ to receive a water partner Pokmon mug or ‘TEAMRED’ to get a fire partner Pokmon mug for free with any Pokmon games and Pokmon console bundle. This includes both pre-orders for Pokmon Mystery Dungeon: Rescue Team DX or the Pokmon Sword and Shield Expansion Pass.
You can find everything that’s eligible for the offer on their Pokmon Day 2020 store page. No massive reductions here, then. Just a neat little freebie to go with your purchase if you were considering picking up either anyway.
Meanwhile, at Amazon, a few officially licensed PowerA accessories find themselves reduced for Pokmon Day. The best offers of the lot are on controllers including the Wireless Nintendo Switch Pok Ball controller for 29.99 and Pikachu Wireless GameCube/Super Smash Bros. Controller for 29.99.
After more Switch offers? There are loads more over at Jelly Deals. We’ve got our picks for the best Nintendo Switch SD card, as well as the best price for Animal Crossing: New Horizons and the best price for Pokémon Mystery Dungeon: Rescue Team DX.
Have a browse through the full range, where you can also find a Pokmon Pikachu Wired Gaming Headset for 19.99 and Pokmon Expressions Stealth Case Kit For Nintendo Switch Lite for 14.99.
Lastly, Game also has its own Pokmon Day hub with all sorts of games, accessories and merch. As with Amazon, not everything on there is actually reduced, but you can find a couple of good deals and a wider selection of items. I’ve picked out some of the more interesting stuff below.
If you’d rather celebrate Pokmon Day in other ways there are a multitude of options available. You can get involved with a new Mewtwo event in Pokmon Go, hunt down new mythical ‘Mons in Sword and Shield or sit yourself down for Mewtwo Strikes Back: Evolution when it lands on Netflix later today.
