Toys 'R' Us stores around the country will be hosting a special event next month where you will be able to download a Mew to your cartridge.
This news item is more than 45 days old. Updates are unlikely and newer information may already be available.Forum member Havak claims the 3rd August issue of the Official Nintendo Magazine will reveal details of a tour giving out Mew!
Excitingly, it looks like to go with English Mews, this time the tour will also visit Northern Ireland and Philland (known in some circles as Scotland)! Sounds fantastic to me - I've always wondered what Mew would sound like with a Scottish accent.
According to Havak:
- You will need to take your GBA
- You will need to take your own GBA Link Cable and/or Wireless Adapter. (Although to be honest, experience tells me there's always people there who'll you'll be able to borrow off anyway)
- It's likely that the Mew will be a straight download, so you will most likely be able to take Ruby, Sapphire, Fire Red, Leaf Green or Emerald to get your Mew
- There is still the possibility that the Mew will be obtained via the Old Sea Chart, ie Emerald only. But this is unconfirmed
- Events will definately take place in August, some will be mid-week rather than weekends, seeing as it's the holidays
- It's not known whether you need to be at a certain point in the game to recieve a Mew, but I'm sure we've all completed our GBA games anyway
My money's on the Old Sea Chart personally.
So is this real? Will it come as a download or via the Old Sea Chart? What does Mew sound like with a Scottish accent? What are the Deathly Hallows anyway?
