    Am I retarded and blind and can't see it or is there not an edit button to edit posts anymore? (smartass comments accepted)

    Anyway, UPDATE!!!

    This Sunday's flyer for Toys R Us mentions in the bottom right of the front page about the Mew download. It is a definite: September 30 from noon to 3PM. Details available at www.toysrusinc.com/geoffreysbirthday (you have to scroll a little past the YuGiOh and Strawberry Shortcake crap).

    Make sure to use the store locator since the company up and closed 75 stores nationwide this past February (including the one right down the street from me - my home for four years!) so you can find one. Anyone in Massachusetts I suggest going to the Peabody one, but that's just shameless self-promotion because that's the one I work at now (if Medford were still open I'd be telling you to go to Medford for the same reason. Selfish little ol' me)

    Yes, the Edit button has been removed as part of an effort to improve the stability of the board until an upgrade is in place.

    I hope my Toys R' Us actually has Mew on Saturday, considering they knew nothing about the Animal Crossing promotion a couple months back (never got any Mario items either )

    What!? I've been wanting to import the European release for a long time now. Is that in-store only? An updated screen with a Pikachu design would be so awesome.

    Pokemon Tour Across America gave it away. I believe that was around the early summer time.
    Mostly just play Nintendo 64. If you've got games PM me! Cart only.

    G/S/C are still the only ones with the day/night cycle, but they are not the only ones with the real-time clock.

    Ruby / Sapphire / Emerald has a clock, and berries grow and you can water them every so many real-time hours - but the game never really becomes "night" or "day" in terms of changing the way the outdoor areas look.

    BUT - the R/S/E clock DOES change whether Eevee can evolve into Espeon or Umbreon based on whether it's a.m. or p.m.

    So this is one per "customer" right? I have like....2 fire reds, 2 leaf greens, 3 rubies and 2 sapphires i think. I should be entitled to a few freakin mews for actually buying all those damn carts, heh.

    Maybe I could get some people to go with and go two at a time and swap out the GBAs or something.

    And what's up with it only being a three hour window? That's messed up.

    About a year or two ago - right when Fire Red / Leaf Green was first released - TRU did a similar event. You could come to the store on a Saturday and get a poster, a promo card, and then you could trade for "a favorite Pokemon" or something.

    The guy at the store who was doing the trading had no idea; we had to show him how to do it. But basically what Nintendo had done was send each store a normal game cartridge that had its boxes completely filled with various Pokemon - in that case, it was all the ones that were available only on one version or the other (Ekans, Slowpoke, etc.).

    This is unlike what they did with Celebi and the "Top 20" this summer - those cartridges were special ones, and could give out an unlimited number of Celebi characters.

    This is why it says that Mew is only available "while supplies last." I'm not sure how many Pokemon can be stored in a normal game cartridge's boxes, but it is highly likely that whatever that number is - that's the number of Mews that are available at any given TRU.

    I went to the TRU near me - there were no posters up about it or anything. What's the deal?

    I was in charge of that event when I worked at TRU...still have the Leaf Green cart as well.

    I'm debating whether or not to go. I'll probably forget about it on the 30th anyway.

    I probably won't feel as much shame as I should if I do go.

    Back when the original Pokemon red and blue came out they had the same thing going, only back then it was a contest. You got to peel off some sticker off of a sheet that they had and if you got mew you could bring in your copy, and have them plug mew in, my brother won and got it on his. Pretty cool if you ask me.

    I was almost ready to give up. I cannot find a used copy of a GBA pokemon game. They just don't exist around here! I don't know why but people seem to be holding onto them like they're Mario games or something. Actually that's not true, EB had a few copies for sale, but they were 3 bucks less than getting a copy new. Whoop-dee-do.

    So I was starting to get pretty pissed. Then I saw just now, online, that Pokemon FireRed is being made a greatest hits. [link]

    Awesome! It's supposed to be released September 25, giving me 5 days to pick it up before the event

    You should dump the cart, or backup and distro the save file 8)

    Here's some confirmation that FireRed and LeafGreen are going to be made player's choice titles: []link]

    It doesn't say when they're supposed to be released though. EBGames.com says it should be today: []link]. But I went to three stores today and they were all regular price. Hopefully they'll mark them down by Friday!

    Damn! It looks like its going to be too late to get it as a player's choice, but I really don't want to spend full price on it. But if I don't get it by September 30th I can't get Mew. Damn!

    I just phoned my local Toys R Us and the guy knows nothing about getting a free Mew. I lied and told him I was calling for my daughter. I don't have any kids.

    So, I think what I'll do is wait until Saturday and pop in around noon. If someone's there giving away Mew, then I'll go buy it at full price at EB (I've got some credit there). If no one is giving away Mew at Toys R Us then I'll just wait and get it cheaper on October 2nd.

    I really hope someone is giving away Mew though!

    I'm really sorry about the multiple posts, but without an edit button, there's nothing I can do.

    It might make sense to get the full price version in any event because of this:

    When they release it as a player's choice though, they'll likely sell off the remaining non-player's choice versions at player's choice prices, right? I want the wireless adapter

    Dude, you're talking about ten bucks difference. The wireless adapter itself would cost $20 to get on its own. Just cave in and get it at an online retailer. Bestbuy.com seems to have a few left.

    a) I saw PC version of Mario and Zelda at Wal-Mart earlier today, so they're definately floating around out there... of course, they hadn't bothered to change the price tags, so no idea if the price has dropped yet.

    b) Nintendo stopped bundling the wireless adaptor with FireRed/LeafGreen after about the second or third printing. I've seen stores with copies both with and without the adaptor.
