AboutFirst thing is first, My name is James I am a 25 year old Pokemon fan and I love Mew. I am in a relationship and been in the relationship since 4/08/10. Feel free to ask me questions ^-^
Mew is a pink, bipedal Pokémon with mammalian features. Its snout is short and wide and it has triangular ears and large, blue eyes. It has three-fingered paws, large feet with oval markings on the soles, and a long, thin tail ending in an ovoid tip.
Its hair is so fine and thin, it can only be seen under a microscope. It has a long, skinny tail ending with a rounded tip. Mew has big hind legs and short arms with three-fingered paws. Mew is said to have the DNA of every single Pokémon contained within its body, and as such is able to learn any attack.
As demonstrated by its behavior in the first and eighth Pokémon movies, it shows signs of intelligence, curiosity, playfulness, and even selflessness. Mew is incredibly adaptable, able to travel freely in the air or underwater. As seen in Pokémon Snap, it can create a pink orb of energy around itself for protection.
Reports found in Cinnabar Island's Pokémon Mansion note scientific expeditions (either independent or Team Rocket-funded), which have sighted Mew in Guyana, South America, the place where it was first discovered. Since Mew can make itself invisible at will, very few people have knowingly seen it, leading some scientists to declare it extinct and most to assume it to be a mirage. It will only show itself to a person who is pure of heart.
Mew Origin--- Mew is similar to a vertebrate embryo. Its morphology is similar to a jerboa, having large hind legs and a long skinny tail. It is purported by scientists to be the ancestor of all other Pokémon, a reference to the recapitulation theory. It also shares some traits with cats.
Trademark---Mew (then spelled ミュー, not ミュウ) was the first Pokémon trademark ever registered (granted on March 31, 1994, registration number 2636685 part 12), before even Pocket Monsters (ポケットモンスター), which was granted on December 26, 1997.
ミュウ was registered on August 6, 1999, registration number 4302090.
Mew is also the first Pokémon trademark ever applied for; the application was submitted on May 9, 1990, application number 平2-51989; before even Pocket Monsters, which was submitted September 11, 1995.
ミュウ was submitted on June 17, 1997, application number 平9-128909.
Name Origin----Mew may be derived from 妙 myō (strange/unusual), mew (the sound a kitten makes, referring to its size and cat-like appearance), or mutant (myūtanto), or it may be a combination of mystery and new (considering that it is mysterious and "newly" discovered).
and last but not least, TRIVIA!
Though it comes after Mewtwo in the Pokédex, it has to have been discovered before Mewtwo, due to the fact that Mewtwo is Mew's clone.
Mew was the only Pokémon of the first 151 to be left out of the original version of the Pokérap.
Mew was a little-known secret when Pokémon Red and Green were first released in Japan. Even Nintendo was not initially aware that Shigeki Morimoto had programmed it into the game.
In the games, lost scientific reports state that Mew was found in the forests of Guyana.
In Generation III, Mew was the only Kanto Pokémon not catchable in either FireRed and LeafGreen, as well as the only legendary Kanto Pokémon catchable in Emerald.
Mew had shown up in six opening sequences, more than any other legendary.
Mew is the only genderless Pokémon able to learn Captivate, and the only genderless Pokémon besides Cryogonal to learn Attract; however, when used by genderless Pokémon, these moves will always fail.
Unlike most legendary Pokémon, Mew needs only 1,059,860 Exp. to get to level 100, whereas most legendary Pokémon need 1,250,000.
It shares this trait with both Celebi and Shaymin. The three of them also share base 100 stats.
In Super Smash Bros. it has a chance of 1 out of 151 to appear, in Super Smash Bros. Melee, its chance to appear is 1 out of 251, and in Super Smash Bros. Brawl, its chance to appear is 1 out of 493. This is a reference to how many Pokémon were out during the release of each game (151 in Generation I, 251 in Generation II, and 493 in Generation IV).
Mew shares the move Transform with Ditto, along with also sharing the same Shiny coloration and the same weight. In addition to this, in Pokémon Yellow, Ditto can be encountered in the Pokémon Mansion on Cinnabar Island, where diary entries on Mew can be found.
In an interview with Game Freak and Creatures, Inc. in Nintendo Power issue 134, Tsunekaz Ishihara revealed that he created Mew two weeks before game development was finished.
In the US release of Mew as an event for HeartGold and SoulSilver, it was released on the ten-year anniversary of the original release of Gold and Silver.
Mew was the most voted of all legendary Pokémon on Pokémon Power Bracket.
Mew started the trend of every generation introducing a legendary Pokémon with a base stat total of 600 and a stat distribution of 100 all around. Others that follow this trend include Celebi, Jirachi, Manaphy, Land Forme Shaymin, and Victini.
In Pokémon Stadium 2, if the player visits Earl's Academy and check the moves for Mew, the game falsely displays Flamethrower, Ice Beam, and Thunderbolt as its Egg moves.
Mew is also the reason Pokemon is still around today. Back when the Pokemon Red, Blue and Green(jp) games were released the sales were down BUT when everyone found out about Mew sales shot up high soon after.
