Nintendo is spreading the Pocket Monster love by offering free downloads of Pokemon X and Y as bonus for buying a Nintendo 3DS along with another specific 3DS title.

Nintendo has announced that they are giving a free, digital copy of Pokemon X or Y to anyone who purchases a Nintendo 3DS handheld along with one of the following 3DS titles: Animal Crossing: New Leaf, Donkey Kong Country Returns 3D, Super Mario 3D Land, Mario Kart 7, Yoshi's New Island or LEGO City Undercover: The Chase Begins.

It looks as if Nintendo has started to learn its lesson in regards to offering free digital content for the sake of promotion. Given the success of Sony with its multitude of offerings on the PlayStation Network, it makes sense that Nintendo would try offering a hit title for free in this manner.

This deal includes all types of 3DS models, including the XL and Nintendo 2DS. In order to get your free copy of Pokemon X or Y, you must register your 3DS console and one of the listed games on the Club Nintendo website.
