It’s February, and Nintendo and The Pokemon Company are celebrating 20 years of Pokemon! There’s lots of stuff happening this month: new content, new trading cards, new merchandise, and by the end of the month we’ll even be playing Pokemon Red, Blue, and Yellow on the 3DS virtual console. It’s good to be a Pokemon lover. For those of you playing some of the newer titles – Pokemon X & Y, or Pokemon Omega Ruby / Alpha Sapphire – this month also kicks off a special Mythical Pokemon giveaway program hosted by Gamestop / EB Games in the U.S. and Canada, and GAME in the UK.
Mew, being the first Mythical Pokemon ever discovered, is a fitting Pokemon to begin with. From now until February 24 you can head into your local Gamestop / GAME to pick up a free code to unlock Mew in your Pokemon game of choice. This is a level 100 psychic pokemon with the synchronize and pound abilities; it’s also really cute. Mew will also be featured in the Pokemon Trading Card Game and honored with some exclusive loot. You can get all of the details from the official Pokemon20 website .
