I want to get 3 of the pokemon games for $40 at gamestop. Is it safe to assume the games are new for that deal? considering best buy is doing it at $20 as well?

Don't shop there, they sometimes sell used games at a brand new game's price.

The GameStop ad specifically lists the Pokémon promotion as only applicable to pre-owned games.

Gamestop in some locations have done some shifty things in the past, but this is likely due to corrupt or uninformed employees intentionally/unintentionally screwing over people, not due to the actual store or store policies themselves. Some people think just because they had a bad experience at a store, that all stores of the same name are going to give everyone the same experience or something.

My Gamestop and the Gamestop where I previously lived has been just fine though, and the people there are nice, and don't do things I've seen other people claim Gamestop does. That's why I think all the "corruption" is on the employee end itself.

You should go for the deal honestly, since you are still getting a better deal than what you would at any of the other places. I do not know if they are used or new, but if you call up your store, they should inform you if that's the case or not.

Edit: Nowhere in that ad does it say the games are going to pre-owned. It doesn't say they are new, either.

Apparently Black Friday takes place on November 27th or something. That's still almost a week and a half away, so maybe their employees weren't informed yet.

You can't expect an employee to know about ads that don't exist yet. Or expect them to comment on rumors posted by websites about what is supposed to be in the next ad.

Gamespot apparently is not related to Gamestop, so if that is true, that would make sense that they wouldn't know about the ad you posted.

ok so the idea is to wait a bit for the actual ad to come out?
