Pokemon Super Paks only weeks away

Pokémon

Nintendo has announced plans to release two exclusive Pokémon GBA Super Paks across Europe in time for Christmas, just in time to give a million parents a real headache.

A must have item in playgrounds across the land, the two special bundles will be released on the last weekend in November – one Pokémon Ruby-themed and one Pokémon Sapphire-themed, based around the two GBA titles released earlier this year.

The Ruby pack contains a limited edition red Pokémon GBA SP, a neatly branded case and copy of Pokémon Ruby; The Sapphire pack comes in a cool blue colour scheme, with the relevant game and a branded carry case also.

Pokémon Ruby and Sapphire have already shifted a healthy 1.5 million units across Europe and on the back of these bundles the titles are hotly tipped to make a big impression on the Christmas charts.

The reported price for each bundle will be around 170 Euros (just over 117 pounds).
