GAME and The Pokemon Company have joined forces to offer anyone still playing Pokemon X & Y, a.k.a. a LOT of people, some free goodies.

From this Friday, all you have to do is go into a participating GAME shop and ask nicely for a free code to download a new Pokemon and for a starter pack of trading cards. Make sure you ask nicely, though.

If you've got Pokemon X, you'll get Magmar. If you've got Pokemon Y, you'll get Electabuzz. Both of them are monsters from the original Pokemon Red & Blue.

The offer won't run forever, and you'll only be able to grab the trading cards while stocks last. If you've gotta catch 'em all, then you're going to have to go outside this weekend, I'm afraid.
