$5 off MSRP. Hopefully Amazon matches this.

Update: Now comes with a 6-piece pin set if you preorder.

GS always makes upcoming pokemon games $5 cheaper until release day that's when it goes back up to MSRP. I hate GS sometimes

Do they really do that? That's the first time I've heard that.

First I've heard of that, either.

From what I've seen, Gamestop charges MSRP for every single game 100% of the time, so this will likely be the MSRP for the game.

Gamestop is usually the first to reflect proper MSRP for games, while other retailers like Amazon follow suit later on once they get around to reading the memo.

This game doesn't look like a full-price 3DS game, and I'm pretty sure Nintendo knows that, so I'm positive it will be $34.99 everywhere come release.

And, as always, Gamestop will likely be the worst choice for your money, unless you're an avid pin collector. :P

In fact, Gamestop usually charges $5 MORE for Nintendo games, as well as $5 more for accessories like the Wii Zapper ($24.99), Wii Wheel $15.99), and Wii Motion Plus ($24.99). It's disgusting.

Even the new Kirby Mass Attack game, which is $29.99 everywhere else, has Gamestop proudly touting a $34.99 price tag for it. :-|

As I expected, and proven with a simple Google Shopping search, $34.99 IS MSRP for this game.

Other than the pins, nothing to see here. :P

I'm sure it's just an arbitrary passcode like the ones that are posted in Nintendo Power that will be posted on GameFAQs for the world to find and use.

They've been doing this forever, I haven't bought a DS game from them for years because of this (they started doing it some point after the DS launch)

Oh wow, I didn't know amazon had a preorder bonus. But like Kitoro said, the code will probably be posted on GameFAQs for all to use since I know Nintendo does not utilize unique DLC codes. If amazon lowers it to $34.99 then I'll get it there since I have credit from them anyways.
