    Default Mew Download at Toys R Us??!

    In the bottom right corner of page 97 of October's issue of Nintendo Power is an annoucement that on September 30th you will be able to download Mew to any of your GBA Pokémon games (Ruby, Sapphire, LeafGreen, FireRed and Emerald) at any Toys R Us location. This is supposed to be a promotion commemorating the release of the movie Pokémon: Lucario & The Mystery of Mew and Pokémon Mystery Dungeon.
    However, I work at a Toys R Us and have not heard any details yet. I also talked to our region's Nintendo rep and he hadn't heard anything yet. I also checked both www.nintendo.com and www.pokemon.com and there was no mention of it, however it is mentioned in this wikipedia article on Mew http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Mew_(Pok%C3%A9mon).
    This is going to be monumental to Pokémon fans. The first legitimate release of Mew in America. I wish I had more confirmation about it. But if it's in Nintendo Power, it must be true. All's I know is that I BEST be working on the 30th. I hate wasting gas to drive up there when I'm not working (although it would be worth it for Mew).
    I'll post more info (unless someone else beats me to it, which is highly likely what with my lack of time online these days) when I hear it.

    fact: illegal pokemon is a major problem in 2010 the market is crowded with so many counterfeits the criminal courts have to play fast and loose with convictions

    conversely i am fast and loose when it comes to my sexuality so personally i think it turned into a win win situation

    abundance of pokemon and a wide spectrum of people to hump, it was a good year to be a consumer to be sure

    I know in the original Red/Blue/Yellow versions of Pokemon that using a cheating device could screw up your Hall of Fame. I was never clear on the details, though. (And I'd still like to know if the Catch Mew trick does the same thing.)

    I still have a copy of Blue around here somewhere that has my offical Mew. I attended "Pokemon World Tour 99" back in the day and got it there. It even comes with a certificate of authenticity I have around here somewhere.

    I was at my local toys r us and they didn't have anything up about it - has this been confirmed?

    Also, what version of the games will the Mew download work with?

    So it's gotta be an advance one? So that'd be one of:

    Emerald
    FireRed
    LeafGreen
    Ruby
    Sapphire

    Right? I don't have a GBA version of pokemon but I might pick one up if I could get a Mew with it

    It's not that hard to believe... typically Pokemon.com doesn't talk about these things until roughly a week before hand.
    Mostly just play Nintendo 64. If you've got games PM me! Cart only.

    My guess is that since Pokemon Dungeon is coming out in another week or two it'll show up then. TRU is doing a bunch with Pokemon right now, having just released a new Pikachu GBAsp(with brighter screen) yesterday.

    I've not seen any mention of anything, but theres still time before the DS/GBA release.
    Because it makes no attempt to be great, it is therefore extremely great.

    Ahhhahahaha Kaine32's post, that was some quality postmodern rambling there, I just ed.

    Anyways, good news if true, methinks - now that I have Celebi and Jirachi and Deoxys, Mew is the only one remaining for me. Of course, I still haven't caught many of the legendaries and whatnot from Emerald, but meh - I go in spurts, and right now I'm only playing DS games. I'll get back to Emerald sometime soon.

    LET US BE VIGILANT, LEST MEW PASS US BY!

    I hope this doesn't derail this thread too much but a few questions...

    I don't have a pokemon game. I had the original blue game when it came out for GBA, but nothing since then. Which version should I get?

    Also, will the Toys R Us in Canada be giving away Mews?

    The original blue game was for the B&W Game Boy, not the GBA.

    A lot of people seem to be really happy with Gold/Silver/Crystal , as that iteration had a lot of nifty features that later versions were lacking. Of course, the newer versions also have nicer graphics, more Pokemon, and different nifty features (like 2 on 2 battles, I believe), so if those things are desirable to you, perhaps that's what you should stick with.

    Many of those nifty features - like the ability to call other characters in the game with a cell-phone thing - are back in Emerald.

    Others - like the radio affecting things in the real world - are imitated / upgraded / expanded with the Abilities.

    Honestly, the Abilities are enough of an upgrade for anything, really. They completely change the game, and add a whole new level of complexity to it.

    Celebi was available this past summer - they toured the country and gave him out. Should have been a post on this board about it - I remember posting in it, at any rate.
