This is the box that everyone who pre-orders the Pokemon 3DS XL will come in when people pick theirs up from a Pokémon Center in Japan.

Sadly for you and me it’s only available from the Pokemon Centers in Japan (Tokyo, Yokohama, Nagoya, Osaka, Fukuoka, Tohoku or Sapporo to be exact)as a preorder between August 25th and September 14th, available to pick-up on the 15th of September. It’s priced at 18,900 Yen ($239), standard price for a 3DS XL.

The Pikachu 3DS XL going to be very difficult to import but expect to see them going for a nice profit on places like ebay and other online auction sites. If your lucky enough to get one of these outside of Japan for the retail price then please let me know.

No word yet on the amount available or an international release but I’ll update if any news surfaces.
