I decided to venture to one of my local Target stores to see if they had the Let's Go Eevee Bundle, but I was doubtful. After looking high and low, I asked the representative for some help. I mentioned it was a long shot, but I asked if they had the bundle in stock. He mentioned that they were all out. I asked him could he check the other stores in the area. He grabs his scanner, and he mentioned that another location might have one in stock.

 

I then rushed over to the store to verify stock, and they had one left. I took the bundle to Customer Service, and had them price match the website to $49.99. The original store had a few copies of Shenmue along with 5-6 Poke Ball Plus for $14.98. I don't need a second one right? We currently have four joy cons. Being nice and respectful goes a long way.

So yesterday i found a pokeball plus at target for $14.98, i was prettty happy. Get home and notice the seals were broken, ok weird..... I start messing with the thing and no sound or anything.... I hold down the middle joystick and it flashes RED, meaning no pokemon inside. Some bastard bought the pokeball plus, took the mew and returned it! Looks like i will have to return it now, bummer.


That really sucks about the pokeball plus, unfortunately this is not uncommon. I’ve bought multiple items from Walmart and Target just to realize when I get home they were already opened and missing things inside the box. People are getting very sneaky with removing the seals to make it still look unopened. People just have no shame these days. What makes it even worse is we are left returning this stuff and it just looks like we are making it all up to get a free item

14.98 is a great deal for the ball. Out of curiosity, why is the Mew make or break for the accessory? To the point you want to return it?

Are you really asking why someone who bought an obvious damaged and partial item wants to return it?

A month back I bought two Sphero Star Wars droid at a walmart. At first I had a hard time tracking them down so I had to look for some help. Surprisingly the person who ended up helping me was the toy department manager. He helped me track down the last two in stock (one was an xmas gift). Both were spider wrapped since it was originally a high dollar item though now on clearance, which is why I went to buy it there.

 

After we found the droids, I noticed the packaging looked off on one of them. The manager removed the spider wrap off both and I asked if they didn't mind I open them in store. Sure enough, the odd looking that even had multiple UPCs on the bottom (another red flag) was empty inside. He said to me he wasn't surprised at all.

People were being warned that these may be returns and to proceed with caution. TBH, I blame Nintendo for placing the only way to obtain Mew via these things. Not excusing people, but they are part to blame.

It's the only way to obtain Mew. I mean, the journey to obtaining him in Blue/Red was pretty memorable for a lot of peeps.

Why is it damaged? It's missing a pokemon, I'm simply asking WHY the pokemon is make or break. It's just a new. I'm curious. Doesnt the ball have other functions?

But is the ball not worth 15 bucks without the Mew? I ask because I've seen some clearly open box at bestbuy for cheap, if it's just a pokemon I'm missing out on, I wouldn't mind paying less.

I feel like a lot of people only buy the pokeball plus to get the Mew since it’s the only way to get him. So that might be the reason he wants to return it. The Pokeball is neat, but I wouldn’t want to play through the game with it. It’s just a little awkward in my opinion.

It'd be hard to resist not accidentally throwing it.

Not sure yet, still need to play it tonight. My guess is it's a fun novelty but might wear off quick.

Dang, good thing you caught those red flags and actually opened it right then and there.

That’s because these weren’t the droids you were looking for. Just move along.

Here are a few to get started. Didn't list any games as they're all listed on the Target website.

KitchenAid 4.5qt mixer as low as 31.48: https://brickseek.co...sku=072-04-0641 )

My wife’s mixer broke baking for the holidays, so I’d love one of these at 90% off. No idea where that would be though, only 30% around here.

1. You can get Mew from trading so its not the end of the world if you wanted to use the ball.

2. Do you mean Mewtwo? You can't get Mew in R/G/B/Y. Not unless you hack or go to one of the giveaways at a Gamestop/EB HmGames or Toys R Us.

You actually can get Mew in R/B without hacks or going to a promo event. I was able to do it. One of the programmers for the game created a special way to get it. I'm sure you can find the guide on GameFAQS or a similar site.

 

Also, post to follow new thread.

Razer is kind of like turtle beach headsets for consoles. They are the popular brand that is known but they are average.

For a gaming mouse I recommend Logitech. The GPro, G703, and G903 have all been amazing. And I love Logitech’s keyboards too. As a matter of fact I grabbed some Logitech gear on clearance this past summer at Target. But even before then I had already switched to Logitech from Razer/Corsair. Corsair was nice but I just think the Logitech mice are superior. And well Razer felt like nothing special.

May be late to the party on this... but 100% agree.
I have a razer naga i think its called, and the razer tartarus. Both go unused cause i bought logitech instead. G13 and a G600/700 series wireless mouse.. getting old cant remember which model . and its been a while since i purchased it, it just works with zero issues.

 

Edit: for those that care.. now that i'm home, G602 is my mouse. Also have a G600 which is great for MMO stuff, and a G700 that I use for PS4/Xbox stuff (Xim4)

Mew is a pu55y imo. It's all about that Pikablu

Pokemon Let's Go Bundles for $50? 

WOW did I miss a deal! Kicks the crap outta the GCU discount I got on release day. 

Congrats to all who snagged 1 (or 20 lol). I'm super jealous.

 

Still, I'm glad I sold my PokeBall Plus before Christmas, cuz I would never hope get a decent amount back on it now. I loved the added sound effects from the controller, but trying to use it as a controller made my hand cramp up and fingers go to sleep. Wasn't worth the carpal tunnel.

Got the last Pokemon Bundle at Gulf Coast, thanks to the homie who said they had some in stock. Was going to pick it up Saturday, but thought I'd never play it. Checked it out today before class and they had 1 in stock. Prob going to sell the ball and make the game even cheaper.

Someone in the previous thread mentioned seeing Street Fighter 30th Anniversary Edition for $13.98.  I saw it tonight on :xb1: for $8.98.  Also, RE7 Gold :xb1: for $8.98, but I believe that has been found for less.

Didnt even expect to find so many of the clearance 3DS games at the Target in Paramus, NJ. Found Minecraft N3DS ($15) Miitopia, Hey Pikmin, and Fire Emblem Warriors, along with Super Mario 3D Land then went to Hackensack, NJ to surprisingly find SMT Apocalypse in a random cart and Ultimate NES Remix for $5 (walked out of the store only to realize it was opened but the game was thankfully inside). Still bummed I never found New Leaf since that was the one game i wanted to get my girlfriend the most.

It retails for $50 or more. It's a sturdy and solid attachment, definitely not cheap plastic. You can feel a fair amount of gyroscopic metal parts inside, and the outer surface is coated in a slightly coarse rubber that gives you great grip. It connects to the Pokemon Go app, and it makes noises in conjunction with both games. My gf and I don't play the game without the Pokeball, but my guess is that it enhances the immersion. Up to you if you want to replay it, but a reseller could easily flip it at that price too.
