U.K. Retailer GAME Giving Away Electabuzz and Magmar for Pokémon X and Y

April 01st, 2014 | Category: Uncategorized

Beginning April 4, anyone with Pokémon X or Pokémon Y can get either a Magmar or Electabuzz from GAME stores across the U.K.

Pokémon X owners will receive Magmar, while Y owners will get Electabuzz. Both pokémon will come with items that will allow them to evolve if they hold them when traded (Magmarizer and Electirizer).

Distribution is being done a little differently for this event. Instead of receiving them via Local Wireless, you will need to pick up a code from GAME, who will print it out on a receipt upon request. No purchase is necessary.
