Excitement at our house has been building for quite some time over not only the 20th anniversary year of Pokémon, but also the release of the newest Pokémon games – Pokémon Sun and Pokémon Moon. Although all of my kids have been Pokémon fans at some time or another, my 15-year-old son Jack is a huge Pokémon fan who got pretty geeked out over us partnering with SheKnows and GameStop to celebrate the new game launches.
I want you to keep reading all about the Pokémon games release, but before you go any further, I want to be sure that you know that toward the end of the post, there’s a chance for you to win a $100 Visa card. So, be sure to make your way all the way to the end!
If you have a Pokémon fan at your house, GameStop needs to be on your list of places to visit, for a couple of different reasons. First, and this was what Jack was most excited about, GameStop has a large selection of Pokémon collectibles and merchandise that are perfect for Pokémon fans of all ages.
In our local GameStop, there were several Pokémon displays, which included items like shirts, plush, bags, cups, collectible figures, games, books, and more. In fact, Jack was so excited that one plush had to make its way home with us.
That’s Jack with Popplio. Popplio is one of the three starter Pokémon in the new Pokémon Sun and Pokémon Moon games, along with Litten and Rowlet. Jack had already been hearing that plush of these Pokémon could be harder to find, so he was pretty psyched. (Don’t feel bad for the other kids, since they both got cool things from the new ThinkGeek area of GameStop.)
Do you know what my favorite thing was about our visit to GameStop? The store associates when we went in were so nice and helpful, and pretty cool too! We talked with them all about Pokémon and the new games, as well as some of our other favorite fandoms.
When I wasn’t sure about one of the purchases I was about to make, our new friend Spencer helped make a suggestion of something I liked even better! They were also extremely helpful answering all of our questions about how trade-ins work there, as well as their Power Trade Offer, which is exciting and I’ll share about next.
Another really great reason to visit GameStop is, of course, their amazing selection of new and pre-owned games. Customers can bring in their old games and accessories to use as trade-ins toward a purchase. Even better – now through December 4th, GameStop has a 20% Power Trade Offer.
If you want to save money on picking up Pokémon Sun and Pokémon Moon, you can bring in your old games and GameStop will not only do their normal trade-in offer, but they will give you an additional 20% toward the purchase of select games, including Pokémon Sun and Pokémon Moon. Bonus!
In the new Pokémon Sun and Moon, you will explore the beautiful Alola Region with the help of the laidback Professor Kukui and his mysterious assistant Lillie. There are also four new islands to explore, all filled with new friends to make and many brand new Pokémon to discover. Pokémon Sun and Pokémon Moon are sure to be on your favorite Pokémon fan’s wish list, so don’t put off taking advantage of the Power Trade Offer. Like I said earlier, it’s only going on until December 4th. You’ll definitely want to get one (or both!) of the new Pokémon games for less through trading.
