Nintendo Announces Canada’s Pokémon Video Game Event

Games, movies, giveaways, and more!

On Saturday, November 8th, Nintendo of Canada has announced that they will be celebrating all things Pokémon at the Bloor HotDocs Cinema (located at 506 Bloor Street West in Toronto) from 11am to 2:30pm.

There, event guests will be treated to download codes for a Special Demo Version of the Pokémon Omega Ruby or Alpha Sapphire games. Other on-site activities will include the chance to take an electrifying picture of yourself with Pikachu, Pokémon-themed face painting, and demo stations for the recently-released Pokémon Art Academy and upcoming Pokémon Omega Ruby and Alpha Sapphire.

But why a cinema? Because the first 650 guests will receive a free ticket for admission to a showing of Pokémon the Movie: Diancie and the Cocoon of Destruction that will play after the main event from 2:30pm to 4pm. “Arrive early if you are keen to watch the special screening as tickets will be given on a first come, first served basis.”

“Whether you are a fan of the games or the movies, everyone is invited to bring their friends and family to Canada’s Pokémon Video Game Event.”
