European retailers at this point in time seem to be offering pre-orders for a release in October, though there seems to be no agreement on the price of the products between them as of yet. One point of interest is the new Battle Starter that has been featured by a number of retailers, giving us our first glimpse a previously unknown Referee figure. This Battle Starter seems to combine the "Riptide" and "Flamethrower" starters revealed previously into one package, with the addition of the new referee figure. It is unknown if there are additional items in this Battle Starter which are not in the normal starter sets.
 
   
Australian Pokéfans will not have to wait as long, with various retailers, including EBGames (also known as Electronics Boutique), featuring the game in their 3rd quarter catalogues. According to EBGames, we can expect the price for the regular starter sets to be A$29.95, and A$14.95 for the boosters. Sadly, the Battle Starter set featured above does not seem to feature in any of the current advertisments for the game.

The new Battle Starter box

While an actual date of release has yet to be announced, new details are slowly surfacing from retailers who are already advertising and offering pre-orders for the game.

European retailers seem to be offering pre-orders for a release in October, though no agreement seems to be made on the price of the products. One point of interest is the new Battle Starter that has been featured by a number of retailers, giving the public its first glimpse at a previously unknown Referee figure. This Battle Starter seems to combine the Riptide and Flamethrower starters revealed previously into one package, with the addition of the new referee figure. It is unknown if additional items that are not in the normal starter sets will be in this Battle Starter.

Australian Pokéfans will not have to wait as long with various retailers, including EB Games/Electronics Boutique, featuring the game in its third quarter catalog. According to EB Games, the price for the regular starter sets will be A$29.95, and A$14.95 for the boosters. The Battle Starter set described above is not featured in any of the current advertisments for the game.
