When The Pokémon Company unveiled some of its 20th Anniversary plans it confirmed that Mew would be included as a serial code in the upcoming first-gen Virtual Console releases, and also as a distribution in the current-gen releases - Pokémon X & Y and Pokémon Omega Ruby and Alpha Sapphire. Some European details have now emerged to build some Mew hype.

As expected the distribution will be via free serial codes, and in the UK they'll be available from GAME stores from 1st to 28th February; GAME also has dibs in Spain, from 1st to 24th February. GameStop will have the codes in Germany and Italy, from 4th-24th February in the former and 1st-24th February in the latter.

As for the 'mon's abilities, the press release says the following in addition to the fact the Legendary can make itself invisible at will.

LEVEL: 100
TYPE: Psychic
ABILITY: Synchronize
MOVE: Pound

There are more Mew-related goodies coming too, as outline below in an except from the UK press release.

Mew's appearance at GAME Digital PLC will take place from 1–28 February, and is timed to coincide with the release of the Pokémon TCG: Mythical Pokémon Collection—Mew scheduled to launch on 22 February. This is the first of the Mythical Pokémon Collections designed to celebrate Pokémon's milestone year. It includes a special Mew promo card and a pin of the Mythical Pokémon, plus two Pokémon TCG: Generations booster packs and a code to unlock the cards in the Pokémon TCG Online.

Mew fans can head to one of GAME Digital PLC UK's participating shops and look for even more collectible items featuring the original Mythical Pokémon Mew, including a plush, a Mew figurine with Great Ball from TOMY, and an exclusive t-shirt designed by BIOWORLD Europe. All items are exclusive to GAME Digital PLC in the United Kingdom while stocks last.

So there you have it; more legendary Pokémon are also coming later in the year. Will you be heading out to pick up a Mew gift?
