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.

Return to Pokemon Gold and Silver

Pokemon.com announced last week that the next installments in the Pokemon series would return to the Johto region last visited in Pokemon Gold, Silver, and Crystal back in the days of the original GameBoy and the GameBoy Color.

The new games will be called Pokemon HeartGold and Pokemon SoulSilver and will bring all the advances found in the recent Pokemon games to a long absent region.


As with the original Pokemon Gold and Silver, players will start off with one of three Pokemon, Chikorita, Totodile, or Cyndquil, representing leaf, water, and fire types.

The game is slated for Spring 2010.  Pokemon games usually release in Japan first, so I am sure we will hear a lot about these two titles before they arrive in other markets.
