Update [Tue 9th Aug, 2022 11:45 BST] So, do you remember the original title of this article? 'We're Really Jealous Of This French Pre-Order Bonus For Pokémon Scarlet & Violet'? Was someone at Game Freak on Nintendo of Europe reading this?

Today, GAME has revealed its pre-order bonus for Pokémon Scarlet & Violet, and — surprise! — it's the figurine we were talking about last week.

This figurine of the starters is exclusive to GAME in the UK, so if you're as in love with it as us and you live in the UK, get pre-ordering now. Hopefully, it'll come to other European stores, and maybe even the US. We wouldn't want you to miss out on this!

Original article [Fri 5th Aug, 2022 15:30 BST]: We admit it, we're suckers for a really nice pre-order bonus. Especially when it comes to figurines. And with Pokémon Scarlet & Violet coming out this November, we're eager to see just what kind of bonuses or gifts will be on offer from various retailers.

So far, we only know about a few digital gifts — such as an exclusive backpack and that cute little Pikachu who's Terastral form means he gets balloons! — but Nintendo Wire has discovered that French retailer Micromania-Zing is already ahead of the pack with this lovely physical pre-order bonus.

This exclusive pre-order bonus is a little figurine of all three of generation 9's starters — Sprigatito, Fuecoco, and Quaxley. It's really rather lovely, and we really rather want it.

You'll get this trio if you pre-order either Scarlet, Violet, or the Double Pack from Micromania-Zing. So, if you love it and you live in France, there's no reason not to!

Here in the UK, we sometimes get figurine pre-order bonuses for Pokémon games too, and maybe this will head our way too (if it does, we'll be sure to tell you), but for now, we'll have to admire this from a distance.

If you haven't already, make sure you check out our list of everywhere you can pre-order the upcoming Pokémon games.

Do you like this pre-order bonus as much as we do? Do you hope a retailer near you gets something like this? Let us know in the comments!
