Big Poke Balls! Big prizes! I love it!

Pokémon X / Y launches on October 12, so to psych players up, The Pokémon Company is running a fun little event from now until the launch date. On Destructoid and several other sites across the net, you'll find a Poké Ball hiding somewhere, and if you click on the Poké Ball, you'll be taken to a special page that asks you to enter a secret code. What code you ask? Watch the above new music video "Catchatronic" by Pogo to find out!

And what does the entering the code to open the Poké Ball get you? Why, you'll be be able to check out new Pokémon from the upcoming game and well as receive nifty digital gifts. You might even win a weekly prize, like a 3DS XL or digital copies of X and Y!

So where's Destructoid's Poké Ball? Hmmm... around. It's most definitely not in this article. Maybe you'll want to start searching in past Pokémon posts. Just sayin'.
