Tickets can only be booked 3 months (sometimes 2) before the travel date. You'd better wait until then and see if there are any offers on the rail pass(es) you intend to buy, and just buy the ticket along with it. That way you only have one order for everything you need.
You seem to have tried to book the ticket to Germany on the SBB website, but you can't order like that because the "GA" you see there offers discounted traveling on the German leg of the trip whereas the Swiss Pass does not (see here). So you would not get the correct ticket. It's easier to order it along with the pass as explained above, from your local reseller in Hong Kong here. They offer the ticket for Swiss Pass holders, which is the one you need. Also they offer payment in your own currency (HKD).
My advice is to check back here on our site a few months before you travel and check out the pass options, promotions and tickets by then.
