I’m not a hardcore Pokemon fan, but I certainly enjoyed the “old Pokemon” and played several games, including my trusty Red with my old buddy, Gameboy.
When I found out that an old school Pokemon legendary is being introduced to Pokemon White and Black, full of “new Pokemon” that I do not care about too much, I was so excited that I just had to share with you all about the opportunity! Mewtwo is only available from February 12 through February 26, so do not put it off! You will regret it if you don’t, Mewtwo will make sure of that, because he’s boss like that.
If you get Mewtwo on your Black and/or White, he will…
BE SO BADASS! Usually only learned at level 100, he will know Psystrike (lots and lots of damage based on opponent’s defense) at young level of 70 which is where he will start at! No grinding from scratch needed. He will come equipped with the knowledge of Shadow Ball and Electro Ball, all ready to melt pokemon’s faces. He comes with his own set of gifts too, including Premier Ribbon.
Awesome! I want him! But how?
According to IGN:
To acquire Mewtwo, all you’ll need is a copy of Pokemon Black or White, access to a wireless Internet connection and no more than 11 wonder cards in your possession. Begin your game and select “Mystery Gift” from the main menu. Click “Receive Gift,” then “Yes” to open a communication channel. Once this is done, select “Get Via Nintendo WFC,” then “Yes” again.
Voila! Mewtwo will then appear in your game. All you’ll need to do to pick up your new friend is leave an open space in your party and go speak to the deliveryman in any Pokemon Center. Remember to save your game afterward!
