The Pokemon franchise celebrates its 20-year anniversary this year, and as previously announced, fans will be able to get their hands on a special, Mythical Pokemon for free every month starting today.

No Caption Provided

February's offering is a level 100 Mew, which you can get by visiting your local GameStop and getting a code. This can then be redeemed in Pokemon X/Y or Alpha Sapphire/Omega Ruby, the four games that free Pokemon will be handed out for during this promotion.

Pokemon will be available from the beginning of each month until the 24th, either through GameStop or Nintendo. The codes being handed out by GameStop are only good for a limited time; those for Mew available need to be redeemed by May 31, 2016.

Mew makes for an appropriate first selection, being the first Mythical Pokemon from the original Pokemon Red and Blue (and not having been seen in the games in more than five years). You can see the full lineup that'll be available over the course of the year here; Celebi comes in March, Jirachi in April, and Darkrai in May.

GameSpot may get a commission from retail offers.
