UK Pokemon trainers get a Pokeball with X & Y pre-order

Exclusive to the UK? Check out the Pokéballs on those guys!

Are you an avid Pokéfan looking for the best way to tote your dazzling collection of Pokémon games around? Well, UK retailer GAME has you covered, as Pokémon X/Y pre-orders come with an honest to goodness, physical Pokéball with a detachable base. Neat. I rather liked when pre-order gifts were stupid kitschy garbage that would accumulate like dust rather than downloadable perks. 

Too bad these balls don't seem to be coming stateside. Nuts to us, I guess. It testes my patience a bit, but the UK gets shafted often enough themselves, so I can't be too hard on them.

UK readers, what are you going to fill your balls with? Probably something illicit enough to tarnish Pokemon's good, family name, knowing you guys. What would fit in there? Maybe honey. Or a baby hamster.
