Pokemon - Another chance to receive the Mew distribution

The Mythical Pokémon Mew was first available at GameStop stores in February. If you weren't able to make it to GameStop in time, you'll have another chance to receive Mew when the Pokémon Trainer Club newsletter arrives in your inbox in June. It's the same Pokémon that was given out at GameStop, so if you received that one, you won't be able to get another one.

If you're not already receiving the Pokémon Trainer Club newsletter, be sure to sign up for it by June 1, 2016, to receive the next newsletter containing a code for Mew. Be sure to enter the code into your Pokémon Omega Ruby, Pokémon Alpha Sapphire, Pokémon X, or Pokémon Y game by August 31, 2016.

The Pokémon Trainer Club newsletter is full of Pokémon news, promotions, and information to keep you up-to-date in the world of Pokémon. Plus, the newsletter is free—just create a Pokémon Trainer Club account and opt in to receiving it.

Don't miss this second chance to get the Mythical Pokémon Mew. And be sure to visit for more details on the Pokémon 20th celebration.

SurveyMonkey feature - The Rise and Fall of Nintendo’s Miitomo: Why Downloads Don’t Matter

''In Miitomo’s case, this lower-than-peers engagement translates into higher churn. The game’s weekly churn more than 50% means that over half of the users of Miitomo on a given week won’t come back and play it again the following week. For some apps that don’t need frequent use this isnt a problem, but for games like Miitomo that are designed for frequent use, churn at this level foreshadows a quick decline.

Low engagement and high churn cause a steady decline in active users for Miitomo. When comparing to the other games it’s not necessarily the lower peak weekly-active users (WAU) that’s of concern, but the fact that Miitomo drops off much more rapidly. Clash Royale’s lowest value is just 22% from its peak, Candy Crush Jelly’s is 32% from its peak, but Miitomo WAU is 74% lower than its peak value in a much shorter timespan.''
