"Go, Target! Use your Minimize attack on that Pikachu ... 3DS XL!" According to a NeoGAF thread with images from a forum poster, Target plans to sell the upcoming Pikachu-branded 3DS XL at a hefty discount when it launches in North America on March 24. By just how much, you ask? How does $40 sound? If these Target ad scans are to be believe, Target will sell the Pikachu 3DS XL for $160 at release, far down from the normal $200 asking price.

But the deals don't stop there. According to the ad, the red, blue and pink 3DS XL models will also be on sale for $160, and the original model will be available for $130. That's an equal $40 off of the original $170 asking price. With Monster Hunter 3 Ultimate, Luigi's Mansion: Dark Moon, and Pokemon Mystery Dungeon: Gates to Infinity all hitting the console before the end of this month, there hasn't been a better time yet in 2013 to pick up a 3DS.

Couple that with the current 3DS XL registration promotion that nets you one of five free games (see here), and this becomes a downright steal. That is, of course, assuming these Target ad scans are legit. We've reached out to Target for confirmation.
