Pokemon FireRed and LeafGreen Super Music Collection and New Nintendo 2DS Pokemon X and Y Bundles – FSPR66

Pokemon FireRed and LeafGreen Super Music Collection is available on iTunes and two new Nintendo 2DS bundles include Pokemon X and Pokemon Y pre-installed.

Pokemon FireRed and LeafGreen Super Music Collection is available on iTunes


A second Pokémon video game soundtrack is available on iTunes. The Pokémon FireRed and LeafGreen Super Music Collection features 90 tracks from the games. The entire album is $11.99 USD on iTunes, or you can buy each track individually for 99 cents. Buying them individually would be silly, just purchase the whole album for the $12 and save yourself the extra $72 for other Pokémon merchandise.

This would bring so much nostalgia to those who began their Pokémon adventure in the Kanto region like I did back in Pokémon Red and Blue versions. Just listening to the previews on iTunes makes me smile. I suggest you grab your own copy, I will be buying mine soon enough.

Nintendo 2DS bundles include Pokemon X and Pokemon Y preinstalled

Nintendo-2DS-Pokemon-X-and-Y-bundles

After last week’s disappointment of the Walmart distribution codes for Garchomp and Scizor, special Nintendo 2DSs are being bundled with a digital copy Pokémon X or Pokémon Y already pre-installed. The bundle costs $149.99 USD, so you’re probably saving a few dollars by buying the bundle instead of the individual products. Personally, I would prefer to spend the extra an have a physical copy of the games just in case I lose one, I still have the other. Something to remember if you decide to purchase the Nintendo 2DS, it is not 3D capable.

What’s interesting about these bundles is that the blue Nintendo 2DS bundled with Pokémon Y is only available at Toys R Us stores and the red Nintendo 2DS bundled with Pokémon X is only available at Target stores. It was mentioned in the comments of the last Pokedex Radio episode Serial Code Distribution at US Walmart Stores, and Eevee and Friends available on Pokémon TV – FSPR65 by mrs_messiah from the Pokedex Radio forums that it is just a simple marketing ploy to take advantage of the consumers to release exclusive content at specific stores. Personally, I don’t like it, but it’s what they do.

Most of us already have Pokémon X and Y and have no need for the bundles. What are your thoughts about these marketing ploys? Please write your comments below.

Pokémon of the Episode: #441 Chatot

Chatot is the Music Note Pokémon. It can have the Abilities Keen Eye, Tangled Feed, or the Hidden Ability Big Pecks. It stands at 1’08” (0.5m) tall and weighs 4.2 pounds (1.9kg). Chatot is Normal- and Flying-type. Chatot does not evolve, nor evolves from anything. Chatot is the only non-legendary Pokémon to be banned from Generation V’s Global Battle Union because of its signature move, Chatter.

Chatot is the only Pokémon that can learn the move Chatter. Chatter is a special move that can record sound using the Nintendo DS’s microphone in Generations IV and V, and had a Base Power of 60. Also, the louder the recording, the higher chance a foe Pokémon could be Confused. In Generation VI (Pokémon X and Y), the recording feature has been disabled and its Base Power has increased to 65, and still has the chance of Confusing an enemy Pokémon. Chatter is also one of a handful of moves that cannot be copied with the move Sketch.

    Nice ambient sounds! I think bundling the 2ds system with a digital copy is a bad move, cause the the handheld is capable of being stolen, and you lose everything. Like you mentioned, we can take out the cart and leave in our pocket, and I personally made the bad move buying it digitally, but I am really careful with my electronics so I am not that worried.

    It also does have it’s good side cause maybe a younger person is not that careful with their game carts and they lose those. So it depends on the person.

    I don’t mind the marketing ploys that companies have. I’ve never been the type of person to buy into that type of thing. And until they make all games digital, I’ll always buy the game carts. 😀

    I know its not in the Podcast itself since you record on Thursdays, but Nintendo/GameFreak just released a patch that fixes the cheating problem with the battle analyzer. Its free in the eShop.

    i’m not to upset about the late deals i think it’s just part of marketing. And you know sometimes you get extra for pre-ordering the game. ~Etho

    It honestly depends on what’s being marketed and how they go about it. If you have select retailers that are providing a selection of collectables that do not affect gameplay, I dont mind it nor care. It is up to the consumer if they want to spend any more money at that point, given it’s a choice.

    What urks me, is when a company decides it’s a bright idea to add game breaking items to their games. “Oh let’s add this OP (over powered) gun and goodies to the game for X amount of money, for only X retailer!” That isn’t fair, it’s just plain ridiculous.

    I know these publishers and developers need to make a profit, but these ploys lack any ounce of integrity. It is a cheap and sceezy way to milk money from loyal customers and any consumer in general. What’s even worse, is that the bigger companies are now looking into free to play, microtransaction, and monetization for games.

    Luckily, I hope, Gamefreak keeps their promise and never goes down this path.
    **Good article! http://www.ign.com/articles/2013/10/11/pokemon-unlikely-to-get-microtransactions-or-dlc-in-the-future

    Also, despite there being special events for special pokemon, it doesnt bother me too much. This day and age unfortunately, most games and systems are required to have an internet connection due to software and system updates, so it is trivial in that sense. If someone really wanted a special pokemon and/or legendary pokemon, those individuals are a little more dedicated to the franchise and would find the means to do so. I just wish Nintendo or Gamefreak would advertise events better or make them more readily available to their customers so everyone would get a chance at these pokemon!
