Pokemon HeartGold and SoulSilver Pre-Orders Get Bonus Figurines

BOOM widget 363071 What's that? The Pokewalker pedometer bundled with every copy of Pokemon HeartGold and SoulSilver isn't enough? You want more?

Lucky for you, Nintendo just announced that those who pre-order either version from "participating retailers nationwide" will receive a figurine "while supplies last."

Pokemon HeartGold pre-orders will get a figure of the rainbow-winged "Legendary Pokemon" Ho-Oh (above, left) while SoulSilver pre-orders net Lugia (above, right).

Of course, pre-ordering also means that you'll be able to pick up the Nintendo DS revamps of Pokemon Gold and Silver when they hit on March 14. And though it previously seemed that the Pokewalker wouldn't affect pricing, it appears that has changed, as Nintendo now lists each game at $39.99--a $5 premium over its usual prices.
