Generally, yeah. It's not like you can get the games in a deal like that until Black Friday comes around anyway, right? My guess is that Gamestop's games will be pre-owned (could be wrong), but Target and Best Buy...well I don't know if they even have pre-owned games to be honest, since I don't go to those stores unless forced to by a random gift card. I would suspect without having any knowledge of whether they have pre-owned games or not, that they both are going to sell new versions since they aren't primarily a game store to my knowledge.

Do Best Buy and Target actually have their official ads out in public yet either?

I don't think a lot of places have there ad out a week early. I checked out best buy and they actually have their ad up! omega and alpha are up there for $20 doesn't say they are for new or pre owned either...

There's a way to tell though, but you'll have to make another call. You simply call up Best Buy and ask if they sell pre-owned games or not. If they say "no" you'll know the games will be new, and if they say "yes" then I guess you're right back when you started. Eh.

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.

At the bottom of page 2. The black section is labeled “preowned.” It includes the Pokémon promo.

It kind of sounds like you think that ad is for Best Buy.
