    Pokémon Generation I & II Event Guide v1.2

    Pokémon Generation I Event Guide
    Written by Twig

    This is a guide for Pokémon Generation I events. Generation I consists of the Red, Blue, Green, and Yellow Game Boy Pokémon games. Generation I and II Pokémon are not able to be traded or imported to Generation III, IV, and V Pokémon games. I personally attended two of the Toysrus Mew giveaways as well the 2000 Pokémon Stadium Tour Mew giveaway. If you are going to cite any information in this guide, I ask that you give credit to me as the author of the guide.

    Special thanks to the following members for helping to contribute sections: Poryhack, Gold Ursaring, Requiem, Nirron, SnorlaxMonster, and Lady Ariel.

    CoroCoro Mew Giveaway 1996-1997

    The Japanese magazine CoroCoro announced a contest for a Mew. CoroCoro gave away only 20 Mews, and received more than 78,000 contest entries.

    Nintendo Power Surfng Pikachu Giveaway October, 1999

    In October of 1999, Nintendo Power annouced a giveaway for a surfing Pikachu. The Pikachu knew surf and could learn other water type moves. Only 1,000 Pikachus were distributed nationwide. The surfing Pikachu could be used to play the Pikachu surfing minigame in Pokémon yellow.



    Spaceworld Mew Giveaway November, 1999

    Mew was distributed at the Spaceworld convention center in Tokyo to contest winners. Contestents who sent in entry cards were mailed confirmation letters to be taken to one of twenty Mew distribution stations at the convention. The contest winners handed their game paks to a Nintendo employee who plugged the cartridge into the Mew distribution machine. "Onscreen, a visual would appear of Mew heading through a cable into its new home" (Nintendo Power, 1999). The machine includes a Super Nintendo controller, and what looks to be a Super Nintendo with a modified Super Game Boy 2 adapter.

    Toysrus Mew Contest September 26, 1999

    For those of you who have caught 'em all but are still desperate to add to that collection, November 26th is your day. That's the day Mew, Pokémon #151, comes to Toys "R" Us all across the country.

    As many Pokémaniacs know, Mew is the most rare Pokémon of them all. There is no possible way to catch him or trade for him in either Pokémon Red, Blue, or Yellow cartridges. The only way to snag this critter, up until now, was to be a Nintendo Power contest winner snag him at a special Pokémon event.

    Finally, Mew is available to the masses. However, Pokémon trainers will have to be on their toes if they want to catch Mew. Here's how to be a part of this event:

    • Have your Gameboy and a Pokémon Gameboy cartridge ready on November26th.
    • Be the one of the first 1,500 customers at any Toys "R" Us store, and you will receive a special 'Peel & Win' sticker card.
    • Peel off the Mew sticker.
    • If the words "Caught Me!" appear under the sticker, you have won Mew, and a Toys "R" Us employee will upload a Mew Pokémon into your own Pokémon cartridge (be it Red, Blue, or Yellow).


    Two hundred Mews will be given away at each Toys "R" Us location, so you have about a one-in-seven chance of snagging one.

    See your local Toys "R" Us for more details and legal mumbo-jumbo, and while you're at it, scope out your city for an underpopulated Toys "R" Us store for the best chance to catch Mew. This will be a tough hunt, but a Master Trainers should be up to the challenge. Good luck!
    This is the Toysrus Mew Contest 'Peel & Win' sticker card.



    Below are pictures of the gameboy distribution cart sent to Toysrus for the event.



    2000 Pokémon Stadium Tour Mew Giveaway July 10 - September 12, 1999

    Japan



    The Pokémon Mobile System GB (Japanese: ポケモンモバイルシステムGB) is a system in the Japanese version of Pokémon Crystal through which the player can link up with others by connecting to a mobile phone. It was never implemented outside of Japan, likely due to the fact that cell phones were not as advanced or popular in other regions at the time.

    A visit to the Pokémon Communication Center in the Japanese version of Pokémon Crystal, here in an English version hacked to restore the facility and the unused English script.

    In the Japanese version of Crystal, Goldenrod's Pokémon Center is replaced by a larger building called the Pokémon Communication Center, which includes the machine to use this feature. Another feature of the facility is the Pokémon News Machine, which compiles news from the save files of players across Japan. Reading the news would sent out a player's own save file data, allowing other Trainers to read about the player's adventure.

    The system had a special mobile event which allowed players to obtain the GS Ball. This item, given by a nurse in the Pokémon Communication Center in Goldenrod City, may be taken to Kurt in Azalea Town to investigate. After a day passes, taking the GS Ball to the shrine in Ilex Forest summons a level 30 Celebi to battle. Many Pokémon fans worldwide have used a GameShark to receive the GS Ball instead, due to the removal of this system in their region.

    The Battle Tower near Olivine City also takes use of the Pokémon Mobile System in the Japanese version.

    Re: "Pokémon Generation I & II Event Guide

    Do you want any information on the Gen 1 and 2 events in Australia (a Mew giveaway and a Celebi giveaway)?
    I attended them both and still have my Mews and Celebis on my old Gen 1 and 2 carts at home, so I could post info on how they were distributed, what they were, etc... Though they are probably the same as the Mew and Celebi in the USA.

    Unfortunately I don't have any pictures of the events but I can describe locations and setups.

    I'm not sure i'll be able to get dates but i'll try.

    I'm going back in my country in a week. I'll be able to take a few pictures there.
    -Red and Blue with "Mew inside" sticker on it. (that one i'm sure i can do since it's mine)

    About Celebi, I got info from a friend but he's very careful with his collection so with a few chances i'll have something to give to you. And if someone can help me with the dates... it's him.

    When i have everything, i'll edit this post with it and PM you.
