Be an Eon Ticket Ambassador to start the Great #EonTicketUK Relay!

Win a chance to attend an exclusive launch event in London and receive one of the first Eon Tickets!

The launch of Pokémon Omega Ruby and Pokémon Alpha Sapphire for Nintendo 3DS and Nintendo 2DS systems is just around the corner—and we have an amazing competition for all Pokémon fans out there.

Winners will travel to a GAME store in London, meet Producer Junichi Masuda from GAME FREAK, be given either a Nintendo 2DS Transparent Red + Pokémon Omega Ruby or a Transparent Blue + Pokémon Alpha Sapphire bundle*, and then return to a local GAME store in their departure location's city to pick up a Pokémon goody bag and share the Eon Ticket with others via StreetPass!

The Eon Ticket is a special in-game item for the new Pokémon titles. With the Eon Ticket, you can revisit Southern Island in your game, where you'll have the opportunity to catch one of the Legendary Pokémon, Latios or Latias**. Most Pokémon Omega Ruby and Pokémon Alpha Sapphire players will have to wait to receive this ticket via StreetPass from someone who has it already. But to kick off the Eon Ticket distribution, we're giving 15 Pokémon fans the opportunity to be among the first in the UK to get hold of this brilliant item to start the Great #EonTicketUK Relay!

Fifteen winners, each with a parent/guardian or a friend, will travel to London on launch day, staying in a hotel overnight on 28 November. The following day in London, at an exclusive launch event at the GAME store in Westfield Shopping Centre, Stratford, the attendees will meet Junichi Masuda from GAME FREAK, the producer of Pokémon Omega Ruby and Pokémon Alpha Sapphire, before being among the first in the country to receive the Eon Ticket and win a Nintendo 2DS bundle.

The attendees will then return to their departure location city, where a local GAME store will provide a Pokémon goody bag and host a reception in their honour, offering local Pokémon fans the chance to come and collect the ticket via StreetPass from the winners' new Nintendo 2DS systems. Once players get the Eon Ticket, they can help spread the word to their friends by using social media to say "I've got the #EonTicketUK!"

Complete the entry form to enter, select your nearest preferred departure location, and leave your contact information. If you're under 18, please get the permission of a parent or legal guardian first. We'll be in touch with the winners on 20 November. Entrants must select their nearest departure location from the 15 listed below and will need to be available to travel to London on 28 November, returning to a GAME store in their departure location city on 29 November in time for a late-afternoon event.
