• Hi all
    Just a notice, we recently discovered that someone got into a moderator account and started hard deleting a load of key and legacy threads...around 150 threads have been lost dating back to 2007 and some weeks ago so we can't roll the forums back.
    Luckily no personal data could be accessed by this moderator, and we've altered the permissions so hard deleting isn't possible in the future
    Sorry for any inconvenience with this and sorry for any lost posts.

Do you get these pins when you Pre ordered the game?

I bought these Ho-oh and Lugia pins a few days ago on Ebay and I just got them in the mail. They are very awesome, but I can't seem to find a Nintendo Logo on them. The seller said you got them when you pre ordered the games back in 2000. I tried doing research but I couldn't find anything on them. Can someone confirm if these are real or not?

(This isn't my picture, but it's the picture the guy on Ebay had, I just uploaded it to my own site)

I preordered Gold back in the day, and they don't look familiar to me.

I could've just forgot about them, though, so I'll dig through my Pokemon merch closet and see if I can find 'em. If I got any with my preorder, they'll be there.

Those pins are really neat, too bad I didn't pre-order the games

I just found those exact same pins in a small box with my other G/S/C-era merch. I am about 98% sure now that they were a preorder bonus based on how I had labelled them.

They really are a rather nice item, though, either way! Might move 'em out of the closet to display on my desk for awhile.

They look really cool sad to say I didn't preorder the game Cause I was like 4 or 5 when the the games came out in the US but they do look rather amusing and worth being a collectable Item.

As a side note, very slightly off topic-

I have next to all the North America promotional merchendise from R/B/Y to G/S/C stored away in my collection at home. I also have a few select items from the UK and Japan.

If anyone else wants to get the authenticity of an item from G/S/C-generation checked, PM me a picture and a short description of what you were told it is. I'll do my best to see if I have a copy!


Really and truly
Question answered. If you want to talk about Pokemon merch, this isn't the place to do it. There is also a LiveJournal community all about Pokemon collecting - they'll answer most questions.
