A second chance Mew is now available for PAL region Pokémon X, Y, Omega Ruby, and Alpha Sapphire using the common serial code MEW2016.

It cannot be obtained on the same game as the Mew from the earlier Pokémon 20th Anniversary distribution, and is identical to it.

As previously announced, a second chance serial code for American region games will be sent out via Pokémon Trainer Club newsletter, which will be valid until August 31, 2016. Consequently, it is likely that the PAL region common serial code will also be valid until August 31, 2016.

PAL region games are sold in Europe, Australia, New Zealand, South Africa, and some other countries.
