Next month marks 20 years since Pokémon’s birth onto the Game Boy in Japan, and to celebrate a double decade of striving to be the very best, UK retailer GAME invites Charmander champions and Zubat zealots alike to collect the first special character to be released onto the 3DS this year.
Owners of Pokémon Omega Ruby, Alpha Sapphire, X or Y for 3DS will be able to pick up Mew, the first mythical pokemon, at their local GAME store.
The psychic type – with a level of 100 – possesses the ability to turn invisible to avoid notice when approaching others; also possessing the synchronize ability and pound move.
If you’re an owner of any of the above 3DS Pokemon releases, Mew can be unlocked at your local GAME store, where you’ll be provided with a code printed on a receipt, free of charge.
Despite the mythical pink being’s rumoured elusivity, the Pokémon will be available at GAME from February 1-28, coinciding with the release of The Mythical PokémonCollection, with Mew set for release on February 22.
Following in the mysterious wake of Mew, more collectible Pokémon will become available across 2016, including Darkrai and Arceus, as well as the newest expansion to Pokémon TCG‘s XY series, BREAKpoint, coming to stores on February 3.
