Default No Free Gift With Preorder?

So I caved and pre-ordered from EBgames...
But I noticed they aren't giving away anything with this generations pre-order, unlike the last one.
I wish something like pokedolls were more common give aways, like the stuffed dog I got for pre-ordering a long ago Harvest Moon game

Yeah, that would be a nice little bonus.

I'm still deciding whether to preorder in the first place and give mainstream Pokemon games one last chance.

I pre-ordered it from an Australian shop, and it doesn't come with anything.

When I got Diamond/Platinum/SoulSilver, they all came with the guide book.

thus far I've only heard of TRU giving away a small Pika Plush or a Zekrom or Reshiram Wall Cling with your pre order.
When HG/SS came out TRU didnt have alot of adverts but when you preordered those you got a nifty HG/SS shirt

O.o
When I think Toys r' Us the first thing to come to mind isn't video game pre-order..I guess because ordering from them would be an even longer wait where I live...

I remember Toys R Us was giving away wall clings. The main site mention it but I too lazy to dig up the news post. Still that was the only give away I heard of.

Also if I remember correctly I don't think the Japanese gave anything away with BW. I remember for HGSS that the Japanese gave away the small Lugia and Ho-oh figurines and that carried over to the US.

I still wish they would've given out a figurine that they started with Platinum. They should've just continued that for like ever. I was extremely disappointed to here there was nothing but from TRU. I pre-ordered at Gamestop too before I heard anything about the TRU giveaway.

I pre-ordered from Toys are Us here, who were reasonably priced and giving away a pack with two stylus, a screen protector and a cleaning cloth. Gamemaster are giving away a 3 stylus pack and as far as I could see GAME were giving away diddly squat.

Wouldn't buying from somewhere like ebay or amazon be cheaper than a from Japan company? o.o
Of course I wouldn't know if pokemon comes out in something besides Japanese or english where you live to start with...

Who cares about the "Prima Guide". That things like 20-25 bucks max anyways. I don't want a crappy guide with my game for 20% off. You can beat this game without a guide and still find everything no problem when you're like 8 years old.
