Well, nice.. It's not really a Pokémon Discussion... Shutting.
(I know the reason barely holds water.. it's just feels like this topic is more about the stores than the games. Plus as pointed out a few more hours the game will be officially out.)
I knew store that unofficially Sold me certain games before their release date.. However, they can't do it anymore due to their suppliers basicly stop stocking Nintendo products and many rarer games. It was the way they made sure I bought from them, anyway.
