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.

Pokemon Mew Download Event

Pokemon.com has announced a new Pokemon download event for Pokemon HeartGold and SoulSilver players.

Celebrating the 10th anniversary of the launch of Pokemon Silver and Gold, the games on which HeartGold and SoulSilver based, Nintendo is offering up Mew, the original secret Pokemon for download.

Get him while you can

The download event runs from October 15th to the 30th.

This is one of the Pokemon I do not yet have, so we’ll be grabbing Mew on our copies of HeartGold and SoulSilver this Friday.

Instructions on how to download Mew are available at Pokemon.com.

This is not an in-store download.  You must connect to the Internet via your Nintendo DS using the WiFi option in order to download Mew.  Instructions on how to configure your DS are in the instruction booklet that came with Pokemon HeartGold and SoulSilver. (page 35)

If you need help configuring Nintendo WiFi, please check on the Nintendo site for further information.

Professor Oak’s Letter and Shaymin

While Nintendo is still being elusive when it comes to when we will be able to pick up Arceus for Pokemon Diamond, Pearl, and Platinum (though the how is pretty obvious,  through a store event at some future date), they did just announce on Pokemon.com how to obtain Shaymin in Pokemon Platinum.

Well, you encounter Shaymin.  Actually catching Shaymin is up to you.

Shaymin had previously only been available via a Toys R Us download event for Pokemon Diamond and Pearl back in February, before Pokemon Platinum was released.  You could then trade Shaymin to your copy of Pokemon Platinum after it became available.

Now Nintendo has opened up a method to obtain Shaymin directly in Pokemon Platinum.

However, you have to have a Nintendo Wi-Fi account setup to be able to get Shaymin.  And, of course, there is a time limit on this option, though it is a pretty generous time limit.

Remember, this is not an in-store event.
