Nintendo is celebrating the tenth anniversary of Pokémon: Gold and Pokémon: Silver by making Mew widely available. Pokétrainers can finally get Mew without leaving their house for a special event or cheating.
Between October 15 and October 30, players with less than three Wonder Cards can get Mew by logging on to Nintendo Wi-Fi with Pokémon: HeartGold or Pokémon: SoulSilver. A Mew (level 5) will show up as a Mystery Gift with a Pound attack. This Mew comes inside a Cherish Ball and has a Premier Ribbon, items that distinguish this Mew as a special event Pokémon.
