the Truck

One of the most widely known and believed myths is none other than getting mew in Pokemon red, blue, or yellow. This myth has many variations, so I will name only the most widely believed. The S.S. Anne is a luxury cruise liner that is found in Vermilion city. When you pass the man who asks for your ticket, you will find yourself in a small area, standing on a narrow dock next to the ship. If you surf at this area and go to the right, you will find a small peice of land with a truck on it. Using strenght on the truck will push it away and a battle will start with Mew. Other renditions of the myth say that you need to slash the tires with cut, and others that you will find a pokeball and automaticly get Mew, or get an item that, if used, will start a battle with Mew.

To even find the truck, you'll notice you need the HM Surf, which is found in the Safari Zone. To enter the safari zone you need the HM cut. That's where the problem lies, you need cut to get surf, and cut is given to you by the captain of the S.S. Anne. As most pokemon veterans know the ship sets sail when you leave, and the ticket man doesn't let you return to the area. So how do you leave the ship without it setting sail? Simple, you let your Pokemon die. After obtaining cut, fight a trainer on the boat and do as poorly as possible. Hopefully he'll defeat all of your Pokemon and you'll blackout. When this happens, you'll find yourself in the Pokemon center with cut in your inventory, yet the S.S. Anne is still at the dock. At this point go get surf from the Safari Zone then return to the dock. Be sure not to enter the boat and instead surf to the right, where you'll find the infamous truck waiting to be moved aside.

Already beat Pokemon? Never fear, you can find a glitch to get you back to that area here.

Want to get Mew? Well the Nintendo events are over, so the only way you can get him now can be found here.

My thoughts:
I tested this just for the sake of this guide, and I can tell you firsthand that this myth is untrue. There's simply no way to move that truck, and slashing it's tires is wasted effort as well. My advice to you would be this: go see the truck, it's a cool piece of gaming history, just go there knowing it's just an oddity, nothing else. No matter how hard you try to move it, no matter what you do, that truck has nothing to do with Mew, or anything else for that matter. This myth probably became popular due to the lack of Mew in-game, and of course the fact that most of the gamers those days were under ten years old.
