To celebrate the launch of Pokémon Omega Ruby and Pokémon Alpha Sapphire, beginning on November 1st, 2014, a new campaign called Pokémon Scrap (ポケモンスクラップ) will begin. Pokémon Scrap is a vouchers system and cards are included with certain physical real world Pokémon products which can be redeemed for virtual item unlocks that can be used in ORAS. Players can begin to collect the required scrap card serials starting on November 1st, 2014 but they can only be entered for redeemable ORAS codes from December 1st, 2014 until April 30th, 2015. Players can begin to collect over 50 different Scrap Cards. Players need to register on the official campaign site and enter their email address in order to participate.

How to Use Pokémon Scrap Cards

On the back of each scrap card is a unique serial code that can be entered on the official Pokémon Scrap campaign site. One you register the serial number, the next tier level is unlocked. Not every tier level contains an unlockable gift though. However, you won't get just one mythical Pokémon. As you collect the scraps, you'll receive up to three mythical Pokémon and five items to help you on your adventure! At each gift tier, a unique Pokémon Omega Ruby and Pokémon Alpha Sapphire serial code will be given which player can use to unlock the gift in the game.


To avoid confusion, 0 (zero), 1 (one), B (Letter), I (Letter), O (Letter) and V (Letter) are not used in any Pokémon Omega Ruby and Pokémon Alpha Sapphire serial codes. If a code is incorrectly entered ten times, players will be locked out temporarily for 24 hours before they can try again.


Unlockable Gifts

Each gift needs a certain number of scrap card codes entered to unlock. Shaymin requires 1, Nugget requires 3, Super Potion requires 5, Keldeo requires 7, Luxuy Ball requires 10, Rare Candy requires 13, Victini requires 16 and the Master Ball requires 20 codes.


Eligible Items

The following product will contain Pokémon Scrap cards with serial numbers. Each product contains only 1 serial code.

  • Gaia Volcano and Tidal Storm XY TCG Booster Packs - Available starting on December 13th, 2014
  • PokéPan ORAS Strawberry - Specially marked packages starting November 1st, 2014
  • 3D Pencil Case - Available in early December

The Pokémon Company International announced a lot of new license deals with merchandise companies today in Europe. Below is the press release with the full details.


European Licensing Programme takes shape with new team at The Pokémon Company International

Evergreen brand going strong with the launch of Pokémon Omega Ruby and Pokémon Alpha Sapphire on November 28, multimillion-euro marketing campaign planned, and numerous licensees on board London, UK—October 6, 2014—The Pokémon Company International announced today several new deals with European licensees. Ten new deals have been confirmed with players as diverse as:

· Arguydal: Food & Drinks
· Aventure Diffusion: Footwear
· Bon Bon Buddies: Confections
· Cartorama: Back-to-School Supplies
· Fashion UK: Apparel
· GB eye: Posters, Wall Art & Accessories
· HORI: Video Game Accessories
· RDS Industries: Video Game Accessories
· Vadobag: Back-to-School Supplies
· Winning Moves: Board Games

These new European licensees join existing partners such as global master toy partner TOMY, whose range includes figures, feature figures, role play and plush, Ultra PRO for trading card game accessories, Sun City for apparel, CTI for bedding, and CyP for back-to-school supplies.

The recent wave of partnerships was spearheaded by a newly established European Market Development team at The Pokémon Company International in London, responsible for licensing, retail, and brand promotions across the continent. The team is headed by Mathieu Galante and has just been expanded by the arrival of Samantha Mortimore and Romina Ialongo. The team will be meeting prospective partners throughout the Brand Licensing Europe 2014 expo at The Pokémon Company International Stand (F070).

“Following the enormous success of Pokémon X and Pokémon Y, which launched on Nintendo 3DS a year ago, and the subsequent introduction of the latest Trading Card Game generation, Pokémon TCG: XY, we’re enjoying a large resurgence in sales and interest in the brand. And across CITV, Netflix, and Disney XD and on iTunes, the TV show is being watched by a huge and ever-growing following,” said Marketing Director Anthony Cornish.

“The newly expanded Market Development team, based in our European headquarters in Chiswick, has been hard at work bringing on board new partners, and we’re very excited to announce the first wave of new partners who will help us bring world-class consumer products to our passionate fans,” added Mathieu Galante, Senior Manager of Marketing Development.

The expansion of the European licensing programme follows a period of growth for the Pokémon brand globally. Pokémon has enjoyed a stellar year following the launch of Pokémon X and Pokémon Y in October 2013 with combined sales of nearly 12 million copies globally in the first four months. Today it is one of the most successful video game franchises of all time, with more than 260 million games sold worldwide since its launch in 1996.

The Pokémon Trading Card Game perennially remains the market leader in trading card games worldwide—more than 21.5 billion cards have been shipped to 74 countries in 10 languages. Recent NPD reports from the UK market have suggested that sales of the Pokémon Trading Card Game (TCG) have risen in 2014 by 51%. New Pokémon TCG expansions launch regularly throughout the year, and the next expansion, Pokémon TCG: XY—Phantom Forces, is set to hit stores in early November.

Future projects for The Pokémon Company International and its partners include the launch of the much anticipated video games Pokémon Omega Ruby and Pokémon Alpha Sapphire for the Nintendo 3DS and Nintendo 2DS systems on November 28, 2014 . This title is a fresh take on Pokémon Ruby and Pokémon Sapphire, which launched in 2003 and were fan favourites for the Game Boy Advance system. The launch will be supported by a multimillion-euro marketing campaign.

The Pokémon Company International will be exhibiting at BLE this year at stand F070.
