The extremely rare classic pair of psychic Pokemon, Mew and Mewtwo, are obtainable in "Pokemon Platinum," but they require a great deal of effort to find and capture. Mewtwo is a large, aggressive, genetically altered monster that was the strongest of the first generation of Pokemon. Mew is a special catch because it has the ability to learn all of the trainable TM and HM moves in the game. These pink powerhouses are a great match for Psychic-type-centered teams.
Things You'll Need
- 2 Nintendo DS systems
- "Pokemon HeartGold" or "Pokemon SoulSilver"
Check the official Pokemon homepage (see Resources) frequently to learn when Mew will be given away as a promotion. Mew cannot be found naturally in "Pokemon Platinum" without hacking the game. Tampering with the game may delete your saved file or damage the game.
Bring your DS and "Pokemon Platinum" to the Wi-Fi location listed on the website. Follow the instructions listed on the promotion to download a Wonder Card redeemable for Mew to your game.
Start your saved game and enter any PokeMart location. Talk to the delivery man standing next to the counter to receive Mew.
Enter Cerulean Cave after you have defeated the Elite Four. Cerulean Cave can only be accessed in "Pokemon HeartGold" and "Pokemon SoulSilver" versions.
Survive the onslaught of high-level Pokemon and make your way to the third basement level of the cave. Be prepared to defend against creatures such as Primeape, Machoke and Wobbuffet.
Save your game when you meet Mewtwo at the end of the cave. Walk up to it to engage in a battle. Capture Mewtwo and trade it to your saved game on "Pokemon Platinum" from either "Pokemon HeartGold" or "Pokemon SoulSilver."
Tips & Warnings
- Mewtwo is extremely powerful and is difficult to capture in a Pokeball, so be patient. Catching Mewtwo may take several attempts.
- Browse Pokemon fan sites and ask to trade for Mew and Mewtwo over the Nintendo Wi-Fi trading service. Be prepared to trade a very powerful and exotic monster in return, because these two are exceedingly rare.
