Later this month Pokemon will celebrate its 20th anniversary.
There will be all sorts of things going on to mark the occasion, but for the serious Pokemon player, the download events will be a key element of the whole show. There will be 11 special mythical Pokemon to download this year, starting this month with Mew.
To get Mew you have to run out to a participating GameStop to get a code that will enable the download. My daughter and I have already been to our local GameStop. This is what the card looks like, front and back.
This download event is limited to the 3DS versions of the classic Pokemon RPG series, Pokemon X & Y and Pokemon Omega Ruby & Alpha Sapphire.
