Mew is the first Mythical Pokémon to be distributed as part of The Pokémon Company International’s plans to celebrate 20 years since Pokémon Red and Pokémon Green launched in Japan.
For those in the United Kingdom, the Psychic-type Pokémon will be distributed at GAME stores across the country between 1st – 28th February 2016.
This will be a Level 100 Mew with the Pound move and Synchronize ability, which, when burn, paralyze or poison are inflicted by another Pokémon, inflicts the same status condition on them.
Mew will be available to players with Pokémon Omega Ruby, Pokémon Alpha Sapphire, Pokémon X or Pokémon Y, who can request a special code at the retailer.
The distribution event has been positioned to coincide with Pokémon TCG: Mythical Pokémon Collection — Mew releasing at retail on February 22nd, which contains a special Mew promo card, a Mew pin and two Pokémon TCG: Generations booster packs.
