To celebrate the global launch of Pokémon X and Pokémon Y, The Pokémon Company have issued a special download code for the two titles. I wonder what they codes are for.

    • Hello, Dylan.

      Download codes are for a one-time use. If they never expired, what would be the point of selling the software when everyone could just infinitely use the same code?

  3. I’ve always wanted a pokemon game and i need the european code for pokemon x!
    Like, ASAP!

  4. When will there be more codes for Pokemon Y? And/Or X? Also, does anyone know when the Pokemon Bank Will Be Available?

  5. please tell me you have a code i’ve looked all over the world to find a code and i never found not one single code and i’m very mad because i had to learn every word of all of the country’s and states and i’m just very mad!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

  6. These were codes for those who bought their games in the UK from tesco. They’re only for 12 quick-balls.
