Target exclusive steelbook

I apologize if there was a topic somewhere on this already but I didn’t see one. I have a feeling this thing will be hard to find and ridiculously expensive on eBay at some point.

It's all in one box.  How would that work?

Ugh I went with the plush Keychains from Pokémon center... I'd rather have this steel book I think. The Keychains sound like just a random toss in not a special pack in box. I know it sounds dumb but it makes a difference for Pokémon games if you're a collector.

The games are, the steelbook is many times a separate item. Bestbuy had the same thing for let’s go.

Based off the box art they show with the double pack, it's assumed that the gold pack is included inside the packaging and not a standalone steelbook.  I suppose we wont know for sure until it releases.

It has to be separate packaging. Everyone is getting the same double pack. The extras will be on the side.

***looks like my suspicions are incorrect. Steel book might come in package.***

Actually looking at the two on target, the steelbook version kinda does look like it’s included in the package... damn.
Thicker than the standard double pack.

I cancelled my pokemon center double pack and got this instead

You are right. I didnt even notice that the box has the steel book pictured on it.

I do not think store pick-up was ever available for this at least it wasn't for me.

Yeah it wasn’t an option, I didn’t see express delivery either for extra which is weird. I’m tempted to just go to Target on my day off and try to snag one when they open. They ad said they’d have limited quantities in store right?

I would love to have that steelbook, but I still have GCU so kinda hard to pass that.

For what's its worth I just got off chat with Target and they issued me a 10% refund for the troubles. I'm going to have to try in store tomorrow.

Same here, had to pass on the steelbook since I have GCU.  I guess the free coins are an OK consolation prize.

The race is on to see whether my now shipped shop4megastore orders arrive from the UK before Target can manage their incompetent distro team. I would say it's Nintendo screwing this up, but they've been consistent with delays and even oversold cancellations. There is definitely some fuckery on their end going on.

Someone actually did an unboxing video for this dual pack and both games come in plastic cases like regular versions. I’m tempted to buy Sword tomorrow and just return my other one in the pack (if it doesn’t say “not for resale somewhere on the back of it) when I get the double pack.

I just checked the back of my pokemon sun copy that was part of the amazon dual pack, and it does say not for resale on the back.

I may do that as well. 2 weeks to play is a really long time

From what I saw they looked extremely similar on the backside in the European unboxing with the same case. I just don’t want you wasting money on what it looked like to me lol.

If someone gets it tomorrow and could verify if it say not for resale or something like that, that would be great.

I’m going to try and pick up another one of these dual packs tomorrow. I just hope it isn’t something where they get like 2 per store or only some stores have them and others don’t, etc.

If I get one I’ll come back and let people know what the cases look like.
