As the headline states, if you have pre-purchased Pokemon Sun and Moon via the Nintendo eShop, you can now pre-load it.


Per serebii, residents of Australia, Europe, Japan, North American and various PAL territories can all start pre-loading, and will be be handed 12 Quick Balls if pre-purchased from the eShop.

The pre-load is for either game, and requires at least 3.2GB of available space, ensuring you’ll be able to start playing once the game goes live on November 18.

To help prepare you for launch, have a look at our Pokemon Sun and Moon hub for all the latest news on the title, as well as our main feature. It provides information on all the Starters, Pokedex, leaks and everything else you need to know about Pokemon Sun and Moon.

And don’t forget: you’ll be handed a Munchlax with a Snorlium Z via Nintendo network until January 11 if you purchase the game by that date.
