Nintendo and The Pokémon Company are giving a second chance to trainers who missed out on getting the Mythical Pokémon Mew last February. Anyone who signs up or is already signed up to receive the Pokémon Trainer Club newsletter will receive a free Mew code in the newsletter for June.
There are some important things to note. The deadline to sign up and receive the code is June 1. Also, if you have already received the Mew given away at GameStop stores earlier this year, you will not be able to get this one as this one is the same pokémon.

Pokémon trainers in Europe can now receive the Legendary Pokémon Zygarde for free via Nintendo Network.
There was no prior notice for the distribution event or any official announcement from Nintendo or The Pokémon Company, so it is unclear how long the event will last or if Zygarde will come to other regions.
You can get Zygarde by using the Mystery Gift menu in Pokémon Alpha Sapphire, Omega Ruby, X or Y and selecting the “Get Via Internet” option.

The Pokémon Center is rolling out their spring collection with some new shirt designs and a bunch of new plushes.
Among the new apparel is the Kanto Blossoms shirt, featuring the trio of Pikachu, Vulpix and Eevee among a scattering of flowers and leaves. There is also the new Espeon and Umbreon Day & Night shirt that sports a simple sun and moon motif.
Four new plushes were added to the Jumbo Size collection. Sleeping versions of Pikachu, Bulbasaur, Mudkip and Ditto – ranging from 16- to 24-inch long – join the jumbo plushes of Wailord, Pikachu and Whimsicott’s substitute.
While not really spring-related, the fall-themed “Mushroom Harvest” Pikachu plush is brand new to the Pokémon Center. The iconic Electric type has on a custom-fit hoodie and is carrying a little basket of mushrooms (with a Foongus hidden among them).
