With each new Pokémon release, there are two difficult questions. One is, “which starter am I going to choose?” But before that, you  have to decide, “which version will I commit to?”

Nintendo knows that some of you don’t actually choose. Instead, you purchase both versions and trade the exclusive Pokémon between them. 

With Alpha Sapphire and Omega Ruby, Nintendo is rewarding your dedication to become the best Pokémon trainer you can be. The company is offering a bundle of both titles packaged with two codes each rewarding 100 potions.

This offer is only available at Best Buy and Amazon. The bundle carries a price tag of $79.98, so you won’t be saving any money. You’re just getting the potions and some convenience.

Pokémon Alpha Sapphire and Omega Ruby will be available on November 21.

 

Our Take
Nintendo is making a smart play here. I have no doubt this will make sitting the fence far more comfortable for those players that have a hard time deciding which way to go. With the addition of the ability to easy transfer Pokémon back and forth without the need for a second 3DS, this is a more viable solution than it was when Ruby and Sapphire were first released.
