    Apparently the Qs didn't print right, and are being printed as Os. I can personally confirm this is accurate.

    What this means is if your gamestop volcanion code isn't working, try and replacing any Os in your code with Qs instead. If you have multiple Os, you will have to try different combinations until you're successful.

    On a related note, Volcanion codes are being distributed at gamestops (in the US any way) right now.

    I just spoke to a friend who is a manager at a GameStop. He only printed one code today, and it had a Q in it. The Q was printed clearly on the receipt. According to him, the backup SKU is not printing correctly. The original SKU is.

    They print them on the receipt for you? Cool! Mine was one of the cards, the ones you scratch off.

    I was hoping it was limited. Good to know it's not happening to everyone :)

    But it's good to get a heads up on that it is happening to some, and to be on the lookout for it!

    Thanks for this! I was totally having this issue. Replaced the O with Q and all is good now!
