Pokemon Emerald Challenge Details
The 'Pokemon Emerald Frontier Battle Brain' contest is coming...
To celebrate the upcoming launch of the new Pokemon Emerald video game for Game Boy Advance SP, the Pokemon Emerald Frontier Battle Brain contest invites Pokemon experts in the United States and Canada to test their knowledge against their fellow Pokemon geniuses. The top 14 Pokemon competitors will travel to Seattle (the Emerald City) to engage in an all-out, winner-take-all competition to win the trip of a lifetime: a trip for two to the Pokemon Park in Nagoya, Japan. Visitors to the Pokemon Emerald Frontier Battle Brain contest site also can enter for a chance to win an all-expenses-paid trip to Seattle to watch the final battle at the famous Space Needle.
"Pokemon fans are proud of their collections, and proud of their knowledge," says George Harrison, Nintendo of America's senior vice president of marketing and corporate communications. "They don't just play the games, they live them. Now they can pre-order a copy of Pokemon Emerald and we'll give them VIP access to information that will help them hone their skills. We'll welcome the best and brightest to the Emerald City, where they can put their Pokemon learning to good use to win great prizes."
Starting March 20, when buyers place a deposit for Pokemon Emerald at a participating retailer, they will immediately receive their Battle Gear: A VIP card that gives the user online access to an exclusive Web site with unique content; A special collector's tin case with enough room to hold important supplies like a Game Boy Advance SP and a Pokemon Emerald game pak; An official Frontier Battle Pass, a guide to the new, more challenging Battle Frontier of Pokemon Emerald
In addition to the pre-sell program, the Pokemon Emerald Frontier Battle Brain Contest will test fans' knowledge of all things Pokemon. The United States and Canada will be divided into seven competitive "Frontiers." Fans can find what regional Frontier they can compete in and enter online at Pokemon-Games.com starting today.
