I purchased the pre-order for Let's Go Pikachu for the Nintendo Switch. Most places, the pre-orders are already out of stock. Does Bestbuy track pre-orders or do they allow everyone to pre-order and then they only send out what they have and cancel the rest of the orders? In otherwords, if I pre-ordered, am I guaranteed to have it available to me?

Hi nalicko –
Welcome to the forums and thanks for your pre-order. A lot of really cool titles have become available for pre-order in the wake of E3, so this has been quite the week! You ask an excellent question, which I’ll be happy to answer for you.
Before pre-orders open we are assigned a certain allotment of copes from the vendor. Once we open pre-orders, we’ll continue to accept new pre-orders until our allotment has been claimed in full, at which point we stop accepting new pre-orders. This is done in an effort to prevent the exact scenario you’re concerned about. If you got a pre-order in, you should be good to go come release. Let us know if you have any other questions!
