You Can Now Pick Up The Legendary Pokémon Mew At EB Games

As part of Pokémon’s 20th anniversary, Nintendo are giving out a number of codes for you to get the mythical Pokémon Mew in your Pokemon X, Y, Omega Ruby or Alpha Sapphire game. While the deal is meant to last through February, numbers are limited so you’ll have to get in quick.

While the deal has been confirmed for North America, official sources in Australia have been a little more hush hush on whether Mew will be coming down under. Official comments on the EB Games Facebook page have confirmed today that you will be able to pick one up in stores this February, however.

While the event starts today, the first of a year’s worth of Nintendo’s Monthly Mythical Pokémon Distribution, EB Games stores might not yet be stocked with the cards. If you’ve got your heart set on a Mew, it’s worth calling in to your local store to see when they will get the cards in.

If the distribution schedule for the rest of the year follows North America’s, these are the other Pokémon to keep an eye out for through the rest of the year:

March — Celebi
April — Jirachi
May — Darkrai
June — Manaphy
July — Shaymin
August — Arceus
September — Victini
October — Keldeo
November — Genesect
December — Meloetta
