Pick up a Free Mew Download Code at GameStop This Month

Pick up a Free Mew Download Code at GameStop This Month

For the month of February, you'll be able to get a download code for a level 100 Mew to use in Pokemon X, Y, Omega Ruby and Alpha Sapphire.

This year marks the 20th anniversary of Pokemon Red and Blue, and Nintendo is holding quite a few mythical Pokemon giveaways to celebrate. The first of these is none other than Mew, the legendary "151st" Pokemon that became a part of so many urban legends. For the month of February, head down to your local GameStop to pick up a free code for Mew (no purchase nescesary), which will unlock him in either of your Pokemon X, Y, Omega Ruby or Alpha Sapphire games.

Mew will be available only through February, and only while stocks last, so your best bet is to get down there sooner, rather than later. Pokemon TCG fans can also pick up the Mythical Pokemon Collection-Mew: which includes two special Pokemon TCG: Generations booster packs and a collectible Mew pin.

The good news for those of you in Canada or Australia/New Zealand who are sick of only the Americans getting the shinies, the promotion is also being held at EB Games stores across those your country.

Additionally, if you need even more Mew in your life, Nintendo has announced that alongside this promotion, Pokemon: The First Movie has been digitally remastered, and is now available for download on iTunes, Google Play, and Amazon store.

Aw sweet. I already have a legit Mew I traded for, but it will be nice to have one I can nickname.

EDIT: Also, this makes me wish X & Y had a NG+ so I could play through the story again with Mew as my starter :/

"Mew will be available only through February"
... At least, until February 24th according to the site and the fliers provided with the code.

For those in the UK, GAME stores provide the codes. Just ask at the counter (I got two codes, one for me and my brother).

FYI, it comes at lvl 100 and only knows Pound. This is because it can learn any TM in the game so you can build it however you want.

THAT'S HOW YOU DO IT?

Shyte, I thought you get a code in your receipt or something. I missed out on a Darkrai last time due to my ineptitude, but looks like I have a chance to get it again in May.

One would hope, despite the different name they're the same company.

Man... I'm a grown adult that still gets excited about Pokemon... Life well spent!

Just release it over the internet Nintendo! I thought you figured this out with the last games. Not all of us live within spitting distance of a sleazy gaming pawnshop chain. I don't want to have to buy a Mew from scalpers.

Missed the part about it being level 100. That's actually really lame. The one I have started at 1.

I miss when the event legends were yours (as in they had your OT). Mah lvl 100 Arceus was mine, grima dammit. (and also my fail safe in Pokemon Black cause I tried to go through that game without grinding and holy shit some of those gyms)

My favorite part about this was the maintenance I had to wait through yesterday. Best feeling ever. Gave me an excuse to finish up my second Mt. Battle 100-battle run, though.

Does the Mew have a gender, or is it random when you get it?

Mew is a genderless Pokemon.

Ah Mew...so cute and carefree. Too bad anyone that got one just turned it into an HM whore. :P

Aw shit! I know what I'm doing tomorrow... or when I remember, whichever comes last...

Other than that, I'm so going to re-watch The First Movie next week! Too bad it'll probably still be the edited version... :p

Will be just in the states? We have EBgames over here, they're the same company so I hope we do.

I wish it was all online. I have Y, and AS, and I only got one card coz the store was like one per customer. Doesn't ruin my day going to multiple gamestops but it's not super convenient either.
Still, mew-fest, bebeh.... awwwyeeaaaah.

That's just evil. Not to mention a waste of one of the best Gen1s.

Anyone here missed that getting a legendary Pokemon was via online download?

There's no way I can get it as the local GAME store closed years ago and I ain't heading to the city just to download it.

Such is the price of being able to use any move in the game. :P
