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 games.

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 $29.95 AUS, and $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.
