I called the nearby Apple Store at 11:45am and they confirmed that there was stock and quite a number of it. Got away from office and arrived at around 12pm. When I asked about the Pencil the staff knew there was stock and checked for me using their iPod touch, one even went to the back to check. Sorry sold out again. A customer just bought several of these. Good job Apple selling to scalpers instead of your loyal customer. I will return my iPad Pro. Enough of this nonsense.
