But if you're going to be in the vicinity of East London's Old Truman Brewery come November 22 (between 5pm-10pm), you'll be able to (finally) get your hands on the all exclusive, mythical cutey that is Mew for the Virtual Console versions of Pokémon Red & Blue, and Pokémon Yellow!

Yes, in honor of Pokémon Sun and Moon's impending release, #Nintendo UK is throwing a carnival that will bring Alolan flair, color and charm to the streets of London, along with a shed-ton of goodies and events as well.
