The reward for being an early adopter comes in the form of a super-rare Bug- Steel-type Mythical Pokémon called Genesect (pictured).
All players have to do is buy the game and connect to Nintendo Wi-Fi Connection online before November 12, giving you just over a month from the game’s October 7 launch to take advantage of the limited offer.
For now the announcement appears specific to North America.
Here’s the blurb on Genesect: “Genesect, the newly discovered Mythical Pokémon, has been restored from a 300-million-year-old fossil. Modified by Team Plasma, this Pokémon has a signature move called Techno Blast. Genesect is the only known Pokémon with this move. Genesect is a Bug- and Steel-type Pokémon with the ability to adjust its power levels based on the foe it’s battling.”
