Default "Gotta Catch a Ride to New York" Sweepstakes!

"Gotta Catch a Ride to New York" Sweepstakes!
-09/12/06-


Press Release

VIZ Media Wants Pokemon Fans to "Catch'em All" With a Ride on Amtrak
VIZ Media, LLC, one of the entertainment industry's most innovative and comprehensive publishing, animation and licensing companies, Amtrak and Pokemon USA, present the “Gotta Catch a Ride to New York!” Sweepstakes! The sweepstakes will be open through October 13, 2007.

One lucky winner will win a five-day/four night trip to New York City with three family members via Amtrak to Pokemon USA, Inc. headquarters to celebrate the special release of Pokemon: Lucario and the Mystery of Mew! The winner will also walk away with a $600 American Express gift card.

To encourage kids and parents to ride the rails with Amtrak, a Pokemon-wrapped train will run from Boston to Washington, D.C. through the month of September, and 20,000 kids packs will be distributed in select stations, and through Amtrak’s online store. The Kids Packs contain Pokemon Fan Magazine, a VIZ Media All Ages manga sampler, a Pokemon: Lucario and the Mystery of Mew movie poster, and information on the sweepstakes, PokemonCenter.com, and Amtrak’s Kids Half Off Fare!

“We are excited to work with Amtrak and Pokemon USA on such a great program,” says Wendy Shimamura, project lead, VIZ Media. “Train travel is an integral part of Japanese culture and community, so it’s just natural to bring the joy of manga and Pokemon to children and families aboard one of the most prominent transportation services in the United States through 20,000 free Kids Packs! And with the cost of gas rising, it’s great to encourage families to travel via alternative methods of transportation.”

“We can’t wait to welcome the winner of “Gotta Catch a Ride to New York” to Pokemon headquarters, says Holly Rawlinson, Vice President of Licensing, Pokemon USA.” “For a Pokemon fan, it’ll be a thrill to meet the people who make the brand what it is.”

VIZ Media will be releasing Pokemon: Lucario and the Mystery of Mew on DVD on September 19.

A trip to New York... pass! The last time I went to New York, I nearly froze to death.... in May... in the rain... But I don't think it was New York's fault, it was the retards I was travelling with. Apparently, they thought the trip to New York was a shopping spree for them. I freaking hate them... (Murderous thought)

Did any of you happen to actually enter the contest on the front of this site? You know, the one with Amtrak hosting it? I guess the age of 21 requirement put some of you off... But I hope I win! Maybe I can take someone with me maybe?

I entered, and was actually surprised for once that I wasn't too old to enter! I get really tired of the pokemon contests that limit participants to under 12, or 14, or 18, etc.

Seriously! I mean, when they do these contests, they think just because it is a "cartoon" it's only for little kids. Older kids like Pokemon too! Shame on those for the age 16 cutoff age! Yay to those who say 'Pokemon is for everyone!' :D

I didn't know you were twenty. :/ I wonder why I didn't.

It's okay. I'm 18. I would have entered if I could, but sadly I can't. But, hey, you could enter before I could. ...
