Update (Tuesday, August 9th, 2022 at 7:45 a.m. PT): Congrats, Pokémon Trainers in the UK! Retailer GAME announced they’ll be exclusively offering the statue too. Previous pre-orders and all future ones will get it with their pre-order of Pokémon Scarlet, Violet, or both (while supplies last).
August 2022’s big Pokémon Presents event covered a variety of Pokémon games – most importantly the upcoming Pokémon Scarlet and Violet. Since then, and with a release date less than four months away, various retailers have been announcing pre-order bonuses associated with the titles. While things are a bit quiet on the North American front (besides a digital in-game bonus via Pokémon Center), French retailer Micromania-Zing has the cutest physical pre-order bonus currently available.
Exclusive to Micromania-Zing, you don’t need to pick your starter here. Customers who pre-order a copy of Pokémon Scarlet or Violet (or even the double pack) will get a statue that features Sprigatito, Fuecoco, and Quaxly. Until supplies last, though! This offer also automatically applies to all previous pre-orders too.

Cette figurine des starters sera offerte aux clients ayant précommandé l'une des deux éditions standard ou le Pack Duo !

While this is an exclusive for Micromania-Zing, another retailer in Europe (outside of France) might offer it as well. It’s fairly unlikely we’ll see this little figure make it to North America, sadly. Things could change, but North American pre-order bonuses have been either digital in-game rewards or small items of the stationery and plushie variety. For now, it’s best to hope that Pokémon Center crafts some cute individual figures/statues of the starters like they’ve done for other popular Pokémon in the past.
You can keep track of all the pre-order bonuses being offered for Pokémon Scarlet and Violet with our pre-order guide. Expect more swag to be announced from now until the release of Pokémon Scarlet and Violet on Friday, November 18th.
