If you consider video games to be one of your hobbies, then chances are you will be spending a great deal of money to keep up with all the newest games and play them as they are released. Purchasing game after game slowly adds up and can hurt your wallet as more and more must-have titles are coming out. Getting a free game is not usually an opportunity that comes up very often, but when it does there isn't a gamer in the world who would pass up receiving one. Luckily for us Nintendo has one more week left in their special promotion where they are giving away one of their highest selling portable games at no cost to you.

For the entire month of March, the Club Nintendo website is offering a free download code for either "Pokemon X" or "Pokemon Y." To receive a code, simply register a 3DS, 3DS XL, or 2DS system and one of six qualifying 3DS games on the Club Nintendo website with the PIN numbers that come on the paper pamphlet included with each system and game.

The games that can be registered for this promotion include:
Super Mario 3D Land
Mario Kart 7
Lego City Undercover: The Chase Begins
Donkey Kong Country Returns 3D
Animal Crossing: New Leaf
Yoshi's New Island

If you're not already a Club Nintendo member, setting up an account is free and easy. Once you register you start earning coins by registering your games and systems and completing a brief survey after registering each. These coins can then be used towards receiving rewards in the form of free game downloads, 3DS system cases, Wii remote holders and other assorted Nintendo goodies.

Unfortunately the promotion period only goes from 3/1-3/31 so the free "Pokemon X" or Y code is only given to those who register a system and one of the six games in that time period. Club Nintendo members who have already registered their system or one of these games before March are out of luck.

For the people who have not yet registered a Club Nintendo account, now is the perfect time to start earning coins and receive a free copy of one of the most popular 3DS games of all time.

The promotion ends on Monday, March 31. If you want a free copy of "Pokemon X" or Y register your products before then!

"Pokemon X & Y" was released on October 12, 2013 and is available exclusively on the Nintendo 3DS and 2DS systems.
