Hi, we took a fun field trip to New York last week for Pokémon Day and wanted to share the highlights with you! Nintendo NY recently got remodeled and the new store looks absolutely amazing. To top it off, it was Pokémon Day so the store was bustling with a ton of fun activity. It was insane how long the line was! We also stopped over at the local GameStop to check out the Pokken Tournament Early Access Competition regionals also happening that weekend. The competition was fierce and it was cool seeing everyone battling for a spot in the finals. Of course, we couldn’t help but go on a little shopping spree for some goodies for you guys too. We got all the rules below if you would like to enter for a chance to win. As always, thank you so much for watching and we’ll see you next week!
