Pokémon Company launches sweepstakes, Cartoon Network plots marathon
The Pokémon Company International recently announced the launch of their latest TCG expansion, Pokémon TCG: XY: Primal Clash. In order to celebrate this release, the company is hosting its own clash, pitting Team Aqua against Team Magma. People can vote for the organization that they prefer between the two and register for a chance to win a six night vacation to Honolulu, Hawaii via the official website.
By deciding whether you’d want to support Magma’s expansion of land or Aqua’s plans to drown the world with water, you will be able to change the visual design of the website to reflect your team’s favorite colors. In addition, people will have a chance to receive prizes daily, such as a plush, wall graphic, or TCG products. Once the sweepstakes concludes, one participant will be chosen to receive a six night vacation for four to Honolulu including airfare, hotel, car, a spending allowance, and more.
As of the time of this post, Team Aqua is ahead, leading 55% to Magma’s 45%. Will they continue to maintain the lead, or will people decide that they prefer land to sea?
Best of luck to all entrants!
In addition to this sweepstakes, Cartoon Network has decided that starting on February 7, 2015, it will host a special Pokémon animation marathon featuring Pokémon the Movie: Diancie and the Cocoon of Destruction, two special episodes showing off Mega Evolution, and even three never-before-seen episodes from the newest season of the series.
