Mew is a rarely seen Pokemon that many believe it’s just a mirage. However this is not the case. Mew is hard to obtain in the games without cheating or getting it from an event. However in the earlier Pokemon games it was possible to obtain Mew through a glitch. In this glitch several things had to be done before Mew would appear. For this glitch you must be in Cerulean City.
First you need either a Wigglytuff or a Butterfree knowing Sleep Powder. Second you must go and capture an Abra.
Third you had to walk up to the guy on the side next to the nugget bridge then press start then have Abra use teleport.
Fourth go and battle the guy with the Slowpoke making sure he walks up to you.
Fifth after the battle have Abra teleport you again.
Finally walk up nugget bridge your menu will pop up hit save and then continue then Mew will appear at level seven proceed to catching it.
That was the way to get Mew in the older Pokemon games.
Mew has appeared in Pokemon movies and Pokemon special as well. Mew first appeared in the “Pokemon the First Movie” where it had an epic battle with its clone Mewtwo. Mew again appeared in another movie called “Lucario and the Mystery of Mew”. In this movie Mew lived in a tree that gave life to Mew. Mew also appeared in the Pokemon special “The Mastermind of Mirage Pokemon”. In this special Mew was a mirage Pokemon that help saved Ash and the gang sacrificing its life to do so.

It had come in my mind about a question among EarthBound fans are asking themselves. They think Mewtwo and Deoxys are too much like Giegue (Mewtwo) and E.V.E(Deoxys) in the Japan-only MOTHER game, whose sequel was released in the US with the name of “EarthBound” on the SNES. But what are exactly these hommages fans are taling about. First off, the Japanese movie’s name and the Japanese name of EarthBound : “Myuutsu no Gyaakushuu” and “Gigu no Gyaakushu”. The names are very similar, as both characters are counterattacking someone or something from their past. But now, let’s see the similarities of each character as well as the desing of the two MOTHER characters spoken about.
Giegue is a light blue alien with a vague ressemblance to Mewtwo, exept its ears are a lot bigger and has claws rather than ’round thumbs’ that Mewtwo has. Both have 3 fingers on their hands and 2 toes. He is the last boss of MOTHER and has a touching tale of birth.

One of my earliest memories of Pokemon was watching the first movie released by the franchise, Mewtwo Strikes Back. I remember being so captivated by Mew, as I was a young girl who thought that the legendary Pokemon was quite cute. Its color scheme was pink and its design held similarities to that of a kitten – how much cuter could you get? However, even while being no older than 6 or 7, I understood that Mew’s clone, Mewtwo, was a seriously misunderstood creature that didn’t know how to respond to being an outsider.
According to the games, Mew is considered to be the ancestor of all Pokemon (even while Arceus is said to be the very first Pokemon to ever exist) and was thought to be extinct. Ironically, it is unable to breed and is called “the New Species Pokemon”, despite how old it’s supposed to be. Mew is incredibly intelligent, being able to learn every move in the games, and is said to posse genes of every Pokemon. It can shape shift at will like a Ditto and is said to be able to even make itself become invisible at will. Mew was actually a secret that was programmed into the games without even Nintendo being aware of its existence, though it was the first Pokemon trademark ever registered. In an interview with Tsunekaz Ishihara (the President and CEO of the Pokemon Company), he admitted to creating Mew two weeks before game development had finished. In the movie, Mew was carefree and playful though knew when to step in and use its power for the greater good.

In every region are those hard-to-find, rare, and of course, powerful Pokemon. Those are known as legendaries, or legends for short. All legends have incredible background stories (further explained in the TV episodes and movies) and are rumored to have powers to change a certain element of the world. The first generation features the three legendary birds, Zapdos, Articuno, and Moltres, each of a different type. In the movie, Ash learns that they have the power to change the weather where they are, and why they live on three separate mountains.
The other two legends are Mew and Mewtwo, both very unique. The newer games describe Mew as the possible ancestor of Pokemon because of the many kinds of moves that it can use. After looking at the list, I came to the conclusion that Mew can learn just about any TM or HM move. Mewtwo was created by scientists that used some of Mew’s DNA. The first ever Pokemon movie describes in the beginning that Mewtwo became smart enough to realize that it was being used as something to test the measure of other Pokemon’s strength, and made it its goal to get revenge on everyone and everything.

Mew, the new species Pokemon, was the first truly rare and elusive Pokemon to catch during the first generation. Known as the 151st Pokemon in the Pokedex, mew was only obtainable through the following sequence of events (named the “Mew Glitch):
1. When facing the gambler near the underground tunnel entrance (from Lavender Town to Celadon City), immediately press the start button before he notices you and select to fly to Cerulean City. He will see you as you fly away.
2. From Cerulean’s Pokemon Center, head towards Bill’s house and run into the boy facing North in the maze (above the Lass). Defeat his slowpoke (lvl 17) then immediately fly to Lavender Town.
3. At Lavender Town, go west towards Route 8 and the menu should pop up. Press “B” and Mew will appear at lvl 5. Mew is a great asset to any team as it has well-balanced stats and can learn every TM and HM available. It’s synchronise ability also comes in handy because if Mew is poisoned, paralysed or burned, so too does its opponent.
