Mewtwo Available for Download from Nintendo

As mentioned previously, Mewtwo is now available for download from Nintendo via Nintendo WiFi, and will remain so through March 6, 2012.  I downloaded mine already.

The Mighty Mewtwo

While the event is really just to bring attention to updates to the Pokemon Trading Card Game, those of us who only play the video game benefit.

The full instructions for the event are available at Pokemon.com, along with this information:

You’ll have a new opportunity to get the Legendary Mewtwo once again! Between February 12th and March 6th, you can receive Mewtwo in your Pokémon Black Version or Pokémon White Version game. Don’t miss this limited-time distribution event to get this amazing Pokémon via the Nintendo® Wi-Fi Connection service (wireless broadband Internet access required. For more info, go to support.nintendo.com).

When you take this Level 70 Mewtwo into battle, know that you have one of the strongest Pokémon ever. Its moves are powerful and well suited to take advantage of Mewtwo’s strengths and cover its weaknesses. Psystrike is a new signature move for Mewtwo that does damage depending on its opponent’s Defense. Ordinarily Mewtwo doesn’t learn Psystrike until Level 100, but this Mewtwo already has the powerful attack! Mewtwo also has Shadow Ball, a Ghost-type move that is super effective against the Ghost-type Pokémon that can cause problems for Psychic types. Mewtwo is also weak against Dark-type Pokémon, so its third attack, the Fighting-type move Aura Sphere, is a good counter to their attacks. Lastly, this special Mewtwo knows Electro Ball, a stunning Electric-type move that Mewtwo cannot normally learn!

When you get Mewtwo, it will be holding a King’s Rock, an item which occasionally makes its opponent flinch in battle. You can also give it to certain Pokémon and then trade them to make them evolve. Plus, Mewtwo comes with a Premier Ribbon, a special Ribbon that you can’t get through normal game play!

Mewtwo will be available via a Nintendo Wi-Fi Connection distribution event that runs from February 12th through March 6th.

A reminded, this is not an in-store event, but a download available over your local wireless internet connection to Pokemon Black or White only.  For instructions on setting up that connection, go to the US Nintendo support site.

Mewtwo for Me and You – Pokemon Download Coming Soon

Pokemon.com has been teasing visitors for over a week now with an upcoming download event for Pokemon Black and White players.  The Pokemon being dangled before us is the rare Mewtwo.

Mewtwo

Pokemon who get their own entry in Wikipedia are pretty rare, there being 646 Pokemon available at this point, so Mewtwo is pretty important in the Pokemon mythos.  Nintendo says about the impending Mewtwo event:

The legend of the Genetic Pokémon Mewtwo has grown ever since it debuted in the Pokémon Red Version and Pokémon Blue Version games. The Psychic-type Pokémon has always been considered one of the most powerful Pokémon available, and also very tough to catch.

You’ll have a new opportunity to get the Legendary Mewtwo once again! Starting on February 12th, you can receive Mewtwo for your Pokémon Black Version or Pokémon White Version game. Take part in a limited-time distribution event to get this amazing Pokémon. This Mewtwo is incredibly strong and fast, and it even has an exclusive move that Mewtwo cannot normally learn!

However, while Nintendo is being coy, Siliconera is reporting that they have already done this same download event in Japan and they are unlikely to change things up for the distribution in North America.

So if you have Pokemon Black or White, be ready come February 12th for this Nintendo WiFi special offer.  I suspect the instructions will be similar to the Victini event they had at the end of December.
