by on January 27, 2016

Nintendo have announced that UK Pokémon fans will be able to pick up their own Mew from GAME retailers, starting from February 1.

Mew is the first mythical Pokémon of many which will be distributed in the coming months to celebrate the series’ 20th anniversary. Mew will be available from all GAME stores from February 1 all the way through to February 28.

Nintendo Insider reports that the Mew will be already maxed out at level 100, and will have the move Pound and the ability Synchronize, which passes any status effects on to opposing Pokémon. Players who own Pokémon Omega Ruby, Pokémon Alpha Sapphire, Pokémon X or Pokémon Y will be able to request a special code in order to receive their Mew.

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.
