None of them shipped, so how is that the case? You can PM it if it's on order. Just give them a call. But like I said, I doubt it will ever ship - none of them have.

And don't count on them doing the sensible thing. They put it on backorder without telling anyone, have terrible support and are almost entirely separate from actual Target stores.


yes I know that none of them has shipped.. that is why I asked if anyone has got this to work.. because they were telling people before they will not price match it until it ships. So no one got it to work. Did you get them to price match? or know someone who did?

yes you can get it PM right now. I just sent their CS an e-mail stating their weekly ad was cheaper than what I paid for. They PMed in within a few hours. Though it is the last day of the sale so you may want to call them to PM.

However like others have stated, I have little confidence that Target will actually ship out these orders, but who knows.

has anyone been able to PM target online?



because nintendo is producing more.. this will not be hard to get

Where are you getting this information? You've repeatedly stated this will be more than plentiful which is seemingly based on nothing but your own conjecture. Meanwhile there have been numerous sources citing this thing is limited in production.

I'm literally looking at Target's inventory management system right now and I can tell you there are 73 on order currently with an eta of 3-19-13 (yep, almost 2 weeks ago) which is down from Monday's on order number of 110. The company has -14 on hand (a negative on hand usually indicates a store didn't properly acknowledge a shipment or they zeroed their inventory counts and then sold through) which means there might a store or 2 out there that still has one on the shelf but largely means it is gone from Target. And finally, as many others have mentioned, the item is showing up as discontinued in the system. The writing is on the wall, this thing was a limited edition and is now done.

I'm on the phone with them right now but they tell me they won't do it because it's been more than 7 days since the order

but it says on their website you get 2 weeks: "if you see a lower price listed in our Target Weekly Ad the same week or the week following your online order date, we will adjust the price of your online order to match the advertised price if (1) you contact us during the time when the lower price is featured in the Weekly Ad; and (2) the lower price is not on a clearance item. "

so they're talking to amanager right now but i don't know, they really don't want to give me the PM

I don't know. I've placed many orders online at target and if an item goes out of stock for an order and they can't get it they cancel the order within a few days. Target must know if they are getting more in stock or not.. so if they weren't and it really was "discontinued" then they would cancel the order would they not? Why would they delay it.

That and the fact that I just bought 5 pikachu 3ds xls from newegg yesterday.. and they still have them available right now http://www.newegg.co...VirtualParent=1

I think nintendo is just messing with you all.

lol, I'm on the phone with them right now and am running into the same issue. They're checking with some "store specialist" as the guy indicated it was up to the store to determine if they'll match the ad.

UGGGGGGH, as he was explaining the situation, the call dropped. dammit!

Mine has been perfect and I think they would send you a new Pikachu XL till they run out and then they will just fix the one you sent (if possible).

Yeah its there but anyone who pre-ordered you might be SOL now. Those CSR's will point out to you that pricematching is only allowed within 7 days. etc.

Finally my order straightened out after calling them up, forgot my address had changed and apparently that was causing some confusion for them. All ready for pickup tonight, also ordered a set of Vita screen protectors to use on it (Since they worked so damn well on my first XL)

Yep, I just got off the phone with target.com and same thing happened to me even though I pointed out same thing you did. But seeing I ordered it for an Easter gift for my bro, a huge Pokemon fan, out out state, I just hope it gets to him, price adj or not. Good luck.
Oh and for those like me that just want a plain version but oos at stores near you, just get a raincheck like I did this morning. Good til 5/15.

So I just went to 2 different targets and asked them to scan the pikachu 3DS XL to see if they are getting any more in. They told me it doesn't say if they will get more, however they specifically told me it is NOT DEACTIVATED. Both of the stores told me this so i'm not sure where this information is coming from that it is discontinued, but both stores told me it is NOT discontinued. Where did it say that it was discontinued? They have been able to tell me in the past when a game was discontinued so I think they know what they're talking about.

If you find a Target that is sold out of the 3DS XL you can get a rain check and get it afterwards.
