Mew — released in an upcoming promotional event — returns as a playable character in the upcoming Pokemon HeartGold and SoulSilver. The super-rare pokemon will be given between October 15th and October 30th via Nintendo Wi-Fi Connection.
“The Mew character you will receive is a Level 5 and comes with one basic Normal-type attack, Pound, giving Pokémon Trainers the ability to raise and train Mew as they see fit. Making this distribution especially exclusive, Mew comes inside a Cherish Ball and has a Premier Ribbon, both indicating that you got it via a special event.”
“During the limited distribution period, players will need to receive Mew using the Mystery Gift option via the Nintendo® Wi-Fi Connection service and their existing wireless broadband Internet access, and will need to acquire the Pokédex in the game. Players must also have fewer than three Wonder Cards in their game.”
Defending 3DS Price
Nintendo president Satoru Iwata has defended the price decision of the Nintendo 3DS in a recent Q&A Session, saying “Portable video game machines integrate both a gaming device and a screen. You do not need any other hardware devices to be connected in order for you to play with it,” as well as “We do not think, ‘the price relationship between portable devices and home consoles must stay intact simply because it used to be that way.’
