Pokémon X & Y are launching next month, and along with bringing back the classic starters, Nintendo is also bringing back the game's classic catch phrase.

There's a new song, and a new website celebrating the return of the three and half words, and if you use the special code below, you can unlock content on the site and digital Pokémon downloads. Nintendo is spreading these codes all over the Internet on assorted websites.

Nintendo also created a new music video from artist Pogo celebrating, "gotta catch 'em all," which you can check out below. To gain access to the site so that you can enter the code, you'll have to watch the music video. Nintendo and Game Freak teased the announcement this weekend on Twitter. Pokémon X & Y release for 3DS on October 12. For more on the game, check out the most recent trailer.


Our Take
Frankly, I didn't even realize the "Gotta catch 'em all!" motto ever left, but I am willing to take Nintendo and Game Freak's word for it. I guess it's a phrase I have always associated with the game and the show, even when Nintendo doesn't.
