Pokemon Scarlet and Violet pre-orders are still live, with plenty of in-game rewards and merch up for grabs for those getting their orders in early. Retailers are offering their own individual incentives on top of the special Pikachu up for grabs for anyone who buys before February 28. We're seeing listings live all over the place right now, so if you're looking to get your name down for either title (or both, with the Double Pack option) before that November 18 release date, we've got you covered.
From extra berries to in-game healing packs, you'll find plenty of digital bonuses on US shelves. We've scoured the web on our own Pokemon Scarlet and Violet pre-order hunt, and we'd recommend heading to Amazon first. With speedy release day delivery and an ever so slight reduction on that $59.99 MSRP (down to $59.88 - win).
If you're in the UK, there's a lot more to consider. Pokemon Scarlet and Violet pre-orders across the pond are being widely discounted, and include a range of free gifts as well. You'll find plenty of options below, but the headline here is that Currys is your best bet. You can use promo code STARTER20 here for a £10 discount on the £49.99 RRP - bringing you pre-order all the way down to £39.99.
