Pokémon fans who pre-order "Pokémon X and Y" will receive a gift from a specific retail store.
According to a post from the Nsider2.com message board, a GameStop store in Massachusetts is distributing a poster of "Pokémon X and Y" when customers pre-order the Nintendo 3DS-exclusive game.

"I haven't heard about this ANYWHERE on the internet," wrote Destiny Hero on Nsider2's message board. "When I strolled into GameStop this morning to grab the last copy of Pikmin 3, the clerk asked if I wanted to preorder the upcoming Pokémon games--I was going to say no, but then she said there was a poster as a pre-order bonus. And then she went into the back room and boy did she freaking mean it."
An image of the poster was provided, with one side showing the map of the Kalos region (as seen in the image above) and then new legendary Pokémon Xerneas and Yveltal on the opposite side.
Destiny Hope added, "For the record, this poster is over two feet wide, and I did have fun hauling it back to the car (lucky I had some friends to open the doors for me)."
According to a statement Latinos Post obtained from GameStop's PR Coordinator Kyle Stephenson, every GameStop store is giving out the posters to customers that pre-order either "Pokémon X" and "Pokémon Y" game. The posters, however, are in limited supply and are "while supplies last."
The news of the poster comes as fans still wait for the English version of the latest "Pokémon X and Y" trailer. As Latinos Post reported, the sixth trailer for the upcoming video games features a new Pokémon named Oorotto, a tree-like pocket monster who has yet been given an official English-translated name.
The Japanese trailer also features Mewtwo's new form, but it still doesn't answer the question of how the Genetic Pokémon is able to transform.
"Pokémon X and Y" is set for a worldwide release on Oct. 12.
