Can you believe it is Pokémon’s 20th Anniversary?! The boys had to fill me in AND remind me that a trip to GameStop was in order the day that the new Pokémon Sun and Pokémon Moon were out for their Nintendo 3DS. I’ve learned over the years that instead of just tagging along with the boys it’s much more fun to learn and get involved with the stores and games they love!
I’ve learned to really like taking the boys to GameStop – it’s a chance for them to catch me up on the newest games and I learn what they like, what’s on their wish list and what all the kids are playing these days. Occasionally I pick something up for me too.
I like that we can look around and the boys can ask questions. The employees at our nearby store are always so great with us. GameStop has great trade in offers so we usually clean up some of the games we have before getting new ones. Right now you can get 20% extra credit for a trade in on an old game or accessory towards the new Pokémon Sun and Pokémon Moon! This ends on 12/4 though so you’ll want to pop in soon!
I asked the boys (much to their delight) to catch me up on Pokémon so I’d know what they were talking about when they were playing the new games. There are four new islands to explore, new friends to make and many brand new Pokémon to discover (that’s my favorite part). When you’re in store they have plenty of great Pokémon collectibles as well. I asked the boys if I bought them some new cards if I could have an old one to use in a scrapbook page – they agreed!
I forget to have someone take pictures when I do little things like this so I’m trying to be better about it. As we started I asked my oldest to snap a couple pictures and then he was off to do his own thing. I’m all about creating memories but it helps me if someone helps keep them too 😉
It’s not easy keeping up with the boys, but I try! Do you have a Pokémon or GameStop lover in your house too? Tell me about them in the comments for a chance to win a $100 VISA gift card that you can use to create some gaming memories together. Don’t forget to check out GameStop on Facebook and Instagram.
