I’ve been playing Pokémon for three decades and I have never legitimately obtained a Mew. Even the one I got on Pokémon ORAS was from a Pokemon X cartridge I’d bought preowned and it was hacked. So when I found out Mew was being distributed this month, it was my opportunity to fulfil a childhood dream. To coincide with the Pokémon TCG: Mythical Pokémon Collection, Mews will be distributed at GAME shops between 1st–28th February. They’ll be Level 100 and come with the Pound move and Synchronize ability and are only available to players with Pokémon ORAS, Pokémon X or Pokémon Y, simply by requesting a special code from the store.
For those who don’t have those games or want to know how to obtain a Mew on Pokémon Red/Blue/Yellow, get a nostalgia trip below.
