Nintendo of America has detailed a few different way on how you can get a download code for the Demo Version of Pokémon Omega Ruby/Alpha Sapphire.
Unlike most demos that offer a small preview from the full game, the Pokémon Omega Ruby/Alpha Sapphire demo will give you exclusive content not available in the full retail release. You'll be able to encounter new forms of Mega Evolutions, and you'll be able to take items and even a new Mega-evolved Pokémon in to the full version of either game.
To receive your own download code, here's what you can do:
- Codes will be distributed at select cinema locations nationwide from Nov. 7–Nov. 13 (while supplies last).
- Check with your local retailer during the holidays to find out about special demo code giveaways (while supplies last).
- Get a code with your purchase of the new Pokémon Art Academy game (out Oct. 24) when you buy from Nintendo eShop on your Nintendo 3DS or 2DS system.
- You’ll also get a code with your purchase of one of two classic Pokémon games coming to the Virtual Console service on Nintendo eShop: the Pokémon Puzzle Challenge game (out Nov. 6) or the Pokémon Trading Card Game (out Nov. 13). You'll find your free demo code on your eShop receipt (download codes available while supplies last).
- Codes will be emailed the week of Oct. 31 to select Nintendo customers with Nintendo Network IDs who have signed up to receive promotional emails from Nintendo.
- Codes will also be distributed during the holiday mall tour from Nov. 24‒Dec. 21 at 16 different locations throughout the nation. Talk to a staff member to try out Pokémon Omega Ruby, Pokémon Alpha Sapphire or any of the featured Nintendo 3DS games to receive two codes—one for you, and one for a friend (while supplies last). Check back soon for a list of tour locations.
If you live in or near the Salt Lake City, Utah area, we'll be having a Launch Party on Saturday, November 22nd to celebrate the releases of Pokémon Omega Ruby and Alpha Sapphire, as well as they much anticipated release of Super Smash Bros. for Wii U.
