London, UK — January 26th, 2012 — Pokémon™ fans can get into the heads of their opponents when the Legendary Pokémon Mewtwo returns with its psychic powers in a special Pokémon Black Version and Pokémon White Version video game character distribution event via the Nintendo® Wi-Fi Connection service. For a limited time starting February 12th, Pokémon video game players with wireless broadband Internet access can receive what is arguably one of the most powerful and popular Pokémon of all time!

Mewtwo, a historically elusive Psychic-type Pokémon, has had a deep connection with fans since its debut in the franchise’s first video games—Pokémon Red Version and Pokémon Blue Version. Its prominent appearance in these titles, as well as in the first Pokémon TCG expansion and the first Pokémon movie, has cemented its special position in the hearts and minds of Pokémon fans across the globe. Created by cloning the Mythical Pokémon Mew, Mewtwo’s origin has always been shrouded in mystery. The secrecy continues, as more details surrounding this special Mewtwo character distribution, including its powerful move set, will be revealed early next month.

Pokémon TCG players can also celebrate the awesome powers of Mewtwo when Mewtwo-EX makes its debut in the newest Pokémon TCG expansion, Pokémon TCG: Black & White—Next Destinies!In stores nationwide February 8th, Pokémon TCG: Black & White—Next Destinies features powerful Pokémon from the Unova region and beyond, including Reshiram-EX, Zekrom-EX, Kyurem-EX, Regigigas-EX, and, as already mentioned, Mewtwo-EX, which is a 170 HP powerhouse that knows X Ball and Psydrive—two devastating attacks that inflict serious damage on the Pokémon’s opponent.

Receiving Mewtwo for your Pokémon Black Version or Pokémon White Version video game and obtaining the Mewtwo-EX card is only part of this Legendary Pokémon’s monumental return. For a limited time only, fans can also watch Mewtwo’s appearance in a special showing of The Mastermind of Mirage Pokémon, only at www.pokemon.com/ex.
