    I totally forgot this game was coming out this week. X3 As such I did not order it until today, so it looks like no release day shipping for me. X3 Oh well.

    ...But now I am torn on which version of the guide to get...

    Part of me is thinking not getting the guide just because the internet has it and more and space issues... but tradition. X3

    I can't not get a Pokemon guide. It's faster for me to flip pages, anyways.

    But not if you're in Europe.
    For some bizarre reason, it's Wednesday instead.
    It makes no sense.

    That seems arbitrary and against usual Nintendo release philosophy. So many people will take off work and school. ;~:

    Tuesday is historically the peak retail day for America, and Friday for most other places, but that is indeed, neither.
    I don't get it, I'd say it's because they haven't got the translated manuals printed yet, but you don't even get those anymore with 3DS games.

    ORAS came over an entire week later in Europe than anywhere else, for some reason, and X and Y were spot-on.
    I don't understand any more.

    I wonder if it has to do with holidays in some European countries? I mean, I can't think if any supply chain reasons for it. Usually I have some kind of logical business reasoning for these kinds of decisions, but not for this or ORAS!

    Those codes will be individual like download codes (such as volcanion as example)? or the very same code can be used by all? In case being the first thing, i would like to ask to someone, to please, get me a code...I don't know if Edo will get the game....

    Well, game out on Friday here in Oz, which is odd, since they tend to be Saturdays, which I hate them forever for, since it means I can't pick them up until the following week if I go to my local EBs

    But fear not! Due to their usual shenanigans, the latest Pokemon news came out after millions of parents and old people bought copies of Sun and Moon for their kids, younger relatives or themselves!

    http://www.kotaku.com.au/2016/11/re...kemon-sun-and-moon-coming-to-nintendo-switch/

    I wonder how many people might have held off getting the 3DS version if they knew a Switch one was coming next year? XD
