    Default Toys "R" Us to distribute Mew: Download open to American gamers Sept. 30

    According to a scan from the October issue of Nintendo Power magazine, Toys "R" Us stores throughout the United States will distribute Mew to players' Pokémon games Sept. 30. The scan said the promotion was to celebrate the releases of the eighth movie and Mystery Dungeon games, both in September.

    Hmm. I wonder if we can get it loaded on more than one game, like at JAA. I wouldn't mind standing in line three times for Mew!

    Yay!

    Finally!


    I was wondering when we would get the chance to receive Mew......


    Anyway, I'm definitely bringing all my Pokemon games to Toys 'R Us on that day!!!!

    And I'm so glad that this isn't another "New York only" thing. ^^o

    Hmm......

    I'm not sure.


    Our break's only 2 weeks long though, right (because of the summer quarter)? O.O

    *is confused*

    Yes, I am happy that I can finally attend something like this.

    I asked this on SPPf, but I visit here more: Do the attendants at these things have extra GBAs to use? I'm asking because I have Emerald and FireRed, but I only have a DS Lite.

    When I was in Japan in December 2004, I was able to borrow a GBA they were using to upload when my GBASP ran out of power.

    Hmmm, how do they do these transfers? The last time I remember doing it
    was via a machine at a Nintendo Mall tour back in 1999 or 2000 (I forgot).
    Basically they inserted your game into a computer with a retrofitted gameboy slot.

    Do they still do it that way, or is it via a link cable/mystery event?
    Or.... is it one of those 'wait till you get there and see for yourself' type things?

    Well, if this is gonna be anything like it was at JAA, when they transferred Celebi you had to have a free slot in your party (they provided the link cable). If I remember correctly, the lady who worked there told me that there was like, a set number of Celebi programmed into the program on the GBA. And the only thing you needed to have was your GBA and your Pokemon games.

    And the funny thing was that the transfer of Celebi to your game pak only took about 15-20 seconds total!! I couldn't believe how fast it was!!!! O_O

    In computer terms, 15-20 seconds is a very long time lol

    Fantastic. Now I just have to hope that the local TRUs don't suck as much as they do.
