Pokémon celebrates 20 years of “Gotta catch ’em all!” on February 27, and as part of the celebrations, fans are invited to head to GAME Digital PLC this February to discover and collect the first of the special Pokémon characters to be distributed throughout 2016!

Owners of Pokémon Omega Ruby, Pokémon Alpha Sapphire, Pokémon X or Pokémon Y for the Nintendo 3DS family of systems can head into a local shop and collect Mew, the very first of the Mythical Pokémon!

Mew is said to possess the genetic composition of all Pokémon. It is capable of making itself invisible at will, so it entirely avoids notice even if it approaches people.

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

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.

Owners of Pokémon Omega Ruby, Pokémon Alpha Sapphire, Pokémon X or Pokémon Y who wish to collect Mew for their game should head to the counter where they will receive a special code printed on a receipt at no charge.

What’s more, Pokémon TCG: XY—BREAKpoint, the latest expansion to the XY Series, will also be available in stores from 3 February!

This Mew bonanza comes hot on the heels of the Pokémon Company International’s announcement that they are celebrating 20 years since Pokémon first launched with the video games Pokémon Red and Pokémon Green in Japan for the Nintendo Game Boy in 1996.

Pokémon TCG: Generations boosters will be available within the specially labelled and designed range for this special year, starting with the Mythical Pokémon Collection—Mew and followed by new Mythical Pokémon Collections throughout 2016, each containing additional Pokémon TCG: Generations boosters. Four Pokémon TCG: Red & Blue Collections, each featuring one of the original superstars of the Pokémon world, will be released containing even more boosters.

Throughout 2016, even more collectible Pokémon characters will be distributed to owners of the hugely successful Nintendo 3DS games Pokémon Omega Ruby, Pokémon Alpha Sapphire, Pokémon X and Pokémon Y. After Mew, Darkrai, Arceus, and other popular Pokémon will be distributed during the 2016 celebrations!

Plans differ depending on the fan’s location, so be sure to visit Pokemon.co.uk/20 for more information about Pokémon 20, Train On projects, and join the conversation using #Pokemon20.

Train2Game News Pokémon celebrating milestone

VivillonRelease of new Fancy Pattern Vivillon will mark a huge milestone for Pokémon X and Pokémon Y’s Global Trade Station.

Currently, about 90 million Pokémon have been traded worldwide, and to celebrate the landmark of 100 million Pokémon trades via the Global Trade Station (GTS), a new Fancy Pattern Vivillon will become available to players.

Vivillon is a unique Pokémon in that the patterns and colours on its wings typically vary based on the real-world region in which a player lives. Because of this characteristic, players around the world have been exchanging Vivillon via the GTS to collect all of the regional patterns.

This newly discovered Vivillon breaks with that tradition: it will become available to Pokémon fans across the globe once the 100 millionth Pokémon is traded via the GTS. When this enormous milestone is reached, a special distribution event will take place, enabling all players of Pokémon X or Pokémon Y to receive the Fancy Pattern Vivillon wherever they are in the world!

Once the goal is reached, players can check Pokemon.co.uk to find out how to get the Fancy Pattern Vivillon in their Pokémon X or Pokémon Y game.
The Pokémon Company would like to thank everyone who has participated in reaching this epic milestone by trading Pokémon via the GTS, and are calling on everyone to keep trading so we hit that huge milestone!

Train2Game News: Pokemon bank available in Europe

Pokemon BankThe Pokemon Bank app is finally available in Europe, following a number of delays. Originally scheduled to launch in the US and European eShop on December 27, the app was delayed in response to server troubles and Nintendo Network outages over the holiday season.

The app will be available on the Nintendo 3DS eShop later today and will charge users an annual fee of £4.49 / $5.00 to store their Pokemon online.

A player’s Pokemon Bank account contains 100 boxes, each with 30 Pokemon capacity, allowing for a total of 3000 Pokemon to be stored. Players can deposit and withdraw Pokemon from their copy of Pokemon X & Y.

The service will also enable players to transfer their previously collected Pokemon from Pokemon Black, White, Black 2 and White 2 into their Pokemon Bank using another 3DS app called Pokemon Transfer.

“Pokemon Box is a paid service that will allow players to have secure and convenient access”, Nintendo president Satoru Iwata said during a Pokemon Direct broadcast last year.
