    There's also an alleged Target ad floating around that claims it'll only be $160 on launch day -- $40 cheaper than normal. While I hope it is legit, I'm not so sure it is because the people at my local Target have no idea about the ad. I showed it to their electronics guy on Sunday (3/17), and he said that Target doesn't release their ads in advance -- let alone two weeks in advance -- and that he's never heard of that happening. He also didn't even have the Pikachu XL in his system yet. The sale ad could be a hoax of some kind, or the people at my local Target could just be daft (which, given their history, may be the case.)
    While not circulated as widely as that Target ad, there's also a rumor that Toys 'R Us is selling the Pikachu 3DS XL for ten dollars less (USD 149) than the alleged Target ad. https://twitter.com/BulbaNewsNOW/status/313620110273306624/photo/1

    And I've noticed that too. Ever since the announcement of the Pikachu 3DS XL, I've been stalking the four stores selling them and only two of them have them up (Toys 'R Us and GameStop). Which is quite frankly the only reason I've not already pre-ordered mine. Target who may or may not be giving the $40 off is still the only one that offers free shipping (for orders over $75).

    While I had no plans on buying another 3DS, I may get this one. This is just too good of a deal (not to mention limited edition) to pass up. Of course, as someone stated earlier there is the hope for XY bundles. Which I would honestly prefer to a neon yellow one.

    And based on them selling out on day 1 in Japan, you'd better be quick.

    Just a quick protip - Most WalMarts price match. If you have the physical ad and Target/Toys R Us is out of them and you have a WalMart near by- they might match the price! (Walmart is selling theirs for the retail value.)

    I'm going to Toys R Us first thing Sunday morning to hopefully get one :3

    Unsure where I want to get mine because my Gamestop claims they may be getting it tomorrow, however I work at a target and kinda want to get it there to use my discount especially if it is actually going to be 159.99. I may buy at Gamestop and return it when i'm sure I can get one at target.

    I won't get it. I don't have $200 spare to change, I won't get paid until April 2nd, I don't like Pikachu that much, I already own 2 DS - DS Lite and 3DS XL.... If they make a 3DS XL with the X&Y starters, I'll gladly spend on it instead. Pikachu and Me, not great combo.

    I picked mine up from target. They are on sale for $159.99 but they weren't joking when they say limited. They had 3 and one of them went to an employee on shift before they opened the doors

    The employee may get in trouble the target buying guideline for employees is they aren't supposed to be allowed to purchase before or after store hours, and if its high demand merchandise they aren't supposed to buy until its had 30mins on the floor, plus we're only allowed to buy on breaks and lunches. I know doesn't help the situation just saying, and more on topic: got mine! Was second in line and we had four.

    As of right now, only Walmart has the Pikachu 3DS XL available to ship to home. Of course, Walmart was also the last to list the 3DS on the website. Toys R Us and Target are offering $20 and $40 discounts respectively, but the only option to get those are in-store pick up, and checking from where I live, most of the nearby stores are already sold out. GameStop, in my area, is listing everything as "Low Stock", so I'm assuming they haven't updated within the last couple of hours. So does anyone want to take bets on how long these will take to sell out? lol

    They aren't kidding by 'low stock'. My GameStop got 2 - count 'em - 2, my Walmart (which is tiny) didn't even get any, and Target got only 4 -- three of which were 'claimed' by employees in advance... I got the fourth, but I'm still annoyed by the nepotism of the situation.

    If you want one and haven't gotten it yet, hurry up or you'll likely miss out! I think they're going to go the same way they did in Japan.
