A Wild Mew Is Appearing For Pokémon 3DS Players In The UK


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.
