Nintendo recently announced that it will be shutting down its Club Nintendo services at the end of June this year. Many Nintendo DS, DSi, 3DS, Wii, and WiiU games came with a PIN# which you could redeem on Club Nintendo's website for virtual coins. You could then cash in your coins for various physical and virtual rewards, such as a virtual download of Donkey Kong or a set of posters. Also if you managed to accumulate a certain number of points in a year you were given an Elite Platinum or Gold level reward, courtesy of Club Nintendo.
Club Nintendo has stated it will release one last set of physical and virtual rewards this February, so it's anyone's guess as to what the rewards will be.
There have been no Pokemon themed rewards offered by Club Nintendo.
Have you ever gotten any prizes from Club Nintendo? Do you even redeem your Club Nintendo PIN#'s? What do you make of Nintendo shuttering Club Nintendo? Why was Pokemon always noticeably absent from Club Nintendo's prize lineup?
