To celebrate the imminent launch of Pokémon X & Y, Gamepedia and the Marriland Wiki have opened up a new contest, giving you a chance to win a super cool Pokémon X & Y themed 3DS XL, copies of Pokémon X or Y, and Gamepedia T-Shirts!
Grand Prize (1)
Limited Edition Pokémon X & Y-themed Nintendo 3DS XL
One copy of Pokémon X
1st Place Prize (2)
One copy of either Pokémon X or Pokémon Y
Runners Up (10)
A Gamepedia T-Shirt
To enter this contest, you just need to register at the official contest page on Gamepedia.com. Due to the region-locking of the 3DS XL system and games we have (as well as the usual legalities), the contest is open only to US and Canadian residents.
Pokémon has just revealed a new Pokémon Music Video, titled "Catchatronic," along with the website GottaCatchEmAll.com. This is all for their new Gotta Catch 'em All promotion, where people have a chance to win cool Pokémon prizes, including copies of Pokémon X & Y and even a 3DS XL, as well as other digital downloadables. The prizes are, unfortunately, available for the US only according to the contest rules.
After registering on the site, you'll be prompted to enter a special password that was revealed in the video above in order to get to the main section. What's that password?
The password is "XY1012", without the quotes.
From now until October 12th, though, Pokémon will be hiding passwords that unlock some of the Poké Balls on the page after you've registered, which give you both a chance to win prizes (US only) as well as a digital download of some sort.
Checking through Pokémon's social networks, on Facebook and Twitter, is what they recommend in order to find new codes to unlock until the release date. The @Marriland Twitter is another helpful Twitter account to follow, as I'll try to post whatever codes I come across there!

Please note that you can only enter 24 codes per week, so if you want to complete the set, you cannot use the free entry code otherwise it will spit out an error saying your final code is invalid, regardless of what it is. Also, sometimes codes randomly don't work or files can't be found. These are the codes that I personally used this morning and they worked, except for Inkay, which was because I used the free entry code.
UPDATE: If you are having problems with any of these codes, please do not contact me about it, but contact Pokémon instead, as there is nothing I can do about it and there seem to be quite a few bugs in their system currently.
There were over 570 entries to the Pokémon Story contest held from December 11th to January 11th, where Pokémon fans across the United States and Canada shared their stories of how Pokémon has affected their lives or what their favorite Pokémon moments were during their time as Pokémon fans.
I've personally gone through all of the entries, and wow, let me just start by saying fantastic job, everyone! I wish I could give away Nintendo 3DS systems to everyone who entered, because there were just too many excellent stories to choose from and it was very difficult to narrow it down to just one winner for each category! It was excellent to have a chance to read so many of your stories and to see how Pokémon has affected your lives.
In the end, though, one winner was selected for each of these three categories:
Additionally, two Curse Premium subscribers that entered the contest were selected at random to receive a Nintendo 3DS.
To celebrate the launch of the new Marriland website and joining Curse, I'm proud to announce that we are giving away FIVE Nintendo 3DS systems! Yes, you heard me right: five brand spankin' new Nintendo 3DS systems!
So, how are we giving these away? Well, we want to hear your favorite Pokemon moments and how Pokemon has affected you as a gamer, so you'll need to enter the contest with a story of how Pokemon has changed your life!
We're looking for your stories of the following:
How has Pokemon affected you?
What have you learned from Pokemon?
What is your favorite Pokemon experience?
We'll be picking our favorite entries from the following criteria:
Best written entry
Most touching entry
The winner of each of those categories will receive a Nintendo 3DS! Additionally, to show support for Curse Premium subscribers, we'll be giving away a Nintendo 3DS system to two lucky Curse Premium subscribers at random who entered the contest. Now's a great time to sign up for Curse Premium, as not only will it increase your chances of winning (since two random Curse Premium entrants will each receive a 3DS), but you'll enjoy an ad-free experience as well as other benefits across the Curse family of sites.
You can find the full details and enter in the contest over on the official entry page on the Marriland Forums. The contest runs from December 11th, 2012 until January 11th, 2013. Be sure to spread the word and tell all of your friends!
