Pokemon HeartGold and SoulSilver get pre-order figures

Because no one would buy Pokémon HeartGold Version of Pokémon SoulSilver Version without them, Nintendo has announced pre-order incentives for the titles today.

Beginning on February 1, you’ll be able to pre-order the titles and receive a special “Legendary Pokémon” figure crafted by Kaiyodo. Pre-order HeartGold, you’ll receive a figure of Ho-Oh. Pre-order SoulSilver, you’ll get a figure of Lugia. The choice is yours. Or pre-order both, because you gotta catch ’em all. (That’s what they say, right?)

Vice President of Sales & Marketing Cammie Dunaway is thrilled about the promotion, calling it a a “way of thanking Pokémon fans of all ages for the enthusiasm and support they have shown for the series.” Also, Nintendo wants your money.

Both games hit shelves on March 14 for the Nintendo DS.
