PRE-ORDER BONUS FIGURES
These figures are released as bonuses for Pokemon DS games. These are highly detailed figures of Pokemon which are highly associated with the games (ie, Dialga for Pokemon Diamond and Ho-oh for Pokemon HeartGold , etc.) Though detailed, these figures are pretty small with heights ranging from 2" - 3 1/4". There are only 8 figures released for this series with 2 of them being bonuses. Half of the figures are released exclusively for Japan. The pre-order bonus figure of Pokemon Platinum was the first to be released stateside which was continued until the release of Pokemon HeartGold and SoulSilver.
The 5th generation games unfortunately did not continue the trend and instead of figures released sound drop keychains of Pokemon mascots as pre-order bonuses for the games.
The following are the games in which this series of figures are released for:
