It’s been confirmed today that the first event Pokémon distribution of 2016 will begin on February 1st in GAME stores across the UK. A mythical version of the legendary creature Mew will be available for download in-store throughout February via a code that can send one straight to one of the Pokémon for Nintendo 3DS devices.
According to the press release, Mew’s Pokédex entry and abilities will be as follows:
Mew is said to possess the genetic composition of all Pokémon. It is capable of making itself invisible at will, so it entirely avoids notice even if it approaches people.
· LEVEL: 100
· TYPE: Psychic
· ABILITY: Synchronize
· MOVE: Pound
The Synchronize ability is always a neat weapon in a creature’s arsenal, as it means status changes like a burn or poisoning will be instantly reflected and matched by your opponent’s Pokémon.
