Can they read? can they not see the release date printed on the shipment box or on the system or whatever? i dont care if people get the game early, but i just dont see how logistic errors like this could happen

You know that they're most likely not selling them early by accident, right?

i dont care if people got the game early at all. In fact i was glad that the game got leaked. I am just curious about how this could happen. i mean are there legal consequences for breaking the street date

Yes. Kosthedin (the guys from instagram) and everyone else who have purchased the games from the same store had to return ALL of it back and the people to not return them would be fined $2000. Meh..wouldn't fault Gamefreak for doing that though.

Kosthedin didn't have to return it, really, and it wasn't him that would have been fined. The store would have been fined $2000 for every copy not returned. That's the story anyway, and some others have corroborated it, I think.

Thank you, gentlemen! Someday, I will repay you. Unless, of course, I can't find you or if I forget.

Uh no.. They all got to keep their copies. The store was fined for each copy that went out the door.
