Mew (Japaneseミュウ Mew) is a Psychic-type Mythical Pokémon introduced in Generation I.

It is not known to evolve into or from any other Pokémon.

Mew is notable for its unique ability to learn every Technical MachineHidden Machine, and Move Tutor move (except those exclusive to a particular Pokémon or group of Pokémon, such as Draco Meteor and Secret Sword).

Mew is the last Pokémon in the Kanto Pokédex.

It is a member of the Mew duo along with Mewtwo.

Biology

 

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 short arms with three-fingered paws, large hind legs and feet with oval markings on the soles, and a long, thin tail ending in an ovoid tip. Its fur is so fine and thin, it can only be seen under a microscope. 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 compose a green/yellow/pink orb of energy around itself for protection.

Reports found in Cinnabar Island's Pokémon Mansion note scientific expeditions that 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.

In the anime

In the main series

 
Mew in Mewtwo Strikes Back in the anime

Major appearances

Mew (M01)

In this movie, Mew made a couple of cameo appearances at the start of the movie. A Mewtwo was cloned from Mew's DNA, extracted from Mew's eyelash. Later, Mew started appearing around New Island while Mewtwo was testing his starter Pokémon clones. Mew followed Team Rocket into the main part of the island so it could stop Mewtwo from destroying the world. After the end credits of the movie, Mew is shown flying to the mountains.

In the Japanese version, Mew's characterization was different. Mew's intention was to wipe out cloned Pokémon, Mewtwo included, because it viewed them as inferior, in stark contrast to Mewtwo, who wished to eliminate natural-born.

Mew also appears in the radio drama The Birth of Mewtwo, adapted into the anime short The Uncut Story of Mewtwo's Origin.

Mew makes a small appearance in the hour-length special Mewtwo Returns, the sequel to Mewtwo Strikes Back: Mew is first shown in flashbacks of the first movie and then named by Mewtwo when it reflects about its composing before the title screen appears (though this dialogue was changed in the dub and Mew is not named). Mewtwo also sees Mew after being thrown into the Purity Spring, but this Mew is just part of Mewtwo's imagination.

Mew (M08)

Another Mew first appeared transformed as a Ho-Oh, and then as a Taillow, landing on Cameran Palace and then transforming into Treecko. It then transformed into an Aipom to play with Ash's PikachuAsh and his friends released their Pokémon to play with what they thought was an Aipom.

After taking them to an attic, Kidd Summers sent her two Weavile after it. To escape, it teleported itself, along with Pikachu and Meowth. It then transformed once again into a Pidgeot and flew the Pokémon to the Tree of Beginning. While Ash and the others were looking for Pikachu, Mew kept it entertained with toys.

Mew also nearly sacrificed itself to save the Tree of Beginning. Lucario stepped in and was able to save Mew, but ended up sacrificing itself. Mew is believed to still reside at the Tree of Beginning. It is last seen playing with a Bonsly.

Other appearances

Super Smash Bros. series

In Super Smash Bros. Mew will sometimes appear out of a Poké Ball. When summoned, it will use Fly to leave the arena. In single player, the summoner is awarded the "Mew Catcher" bonus, worth 10,000 points.

After unlocking every character in Melee, there is a 1 in 251 chance of Mew appearing from a Poké Ball. The thrower of the Poké Ball receives the same "Mew Catcher" bonus.

Mew returns again as a rare Pokémon in Brawl, the chance of it appearing is 1 in 493 this time. Like the other "secret" Pokémon, it drops rare items instead of just flying away. In Mew's case, the items are CDs. However, once all the pick-up CDs are obtained, it will drop Stickers instead.

Mew returns in Super Smash Bros. for Nintendo 3DS/Wii U and comes out of a Pokéball (rarely) and/or Master Ball (rare, but less rare than a Pokéball).

Mew throughout the Smash series, much like Mewtwo, is roughly akin to the first movie portrayal, especially having Kōichi Yamadera reprise his role.

Melee trophy information

Mew is an extremely rare Pokémon that has been seen by only a few people. Information on every Pokémon in the world is contained in Mew's cell structure, so it has the ability to use any and all TMs and HMs. Some Pokémon scholars believe Mew to be the ancestor of all existing Pokémon, but the idea is debatable.

Brawl trophy information

"A New Species Pokémon. An extremely rare Pokémon that contains the DNA of all other Pokémon, it is thought by many scholars to be a Pokémon ancestor, considering the wide range of moves it can use. On top of being able to make itself invisible, Mew can also transform into any opponent Pokémon and use characteristics and moves in exactly the same way."

3DS/Wii U trophy information

NAMew is a Pokémon previously thought to be extinct but rediscovered by Dr. Fuji. This Legendary Pokémon doesn't often show itself to humans, so it is considered quite lucky to see one. In Smash Bros., Mew will appear and then use Fly to sail away, leaving behind a gift. Thanks, Mew!

PALMew was thought to be extinct until it was rediscovered by Dr. Fuji in Guyana. This Mythical Pokémon doesn't often show itself to humans, so it's considered very lucky to see one. In this game, it will float upwards and leave a present behind. If only Mew would turn up more often, eh?

Pokémon Snap

Mew appears in the seventh course, Rainbow Cloud. Although the game is not combat-oriented, the difficulty of photographing Mew effectively makes it the game's boss. Mew floats in a bubble that turns opaque when the zoom is activated, so players must throw a series of Pester Balls or Food at it to break the bubble so Mew will come out for a clear shot. Photographing Mew gets an automatic bonus of 2500 points, making it the highest ranking Pokémon in the game with a highest possible score of 10,000 points with perfect positioning, size and pose.

Trivia

  • Despite being a clone of Mew, Mewtwo appears before Mew in the Pokédex.
  • 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.[1]
  • In the games, lost scientific reports state that Mew was found in the forests of Guyana.
  • In Generation III, Mew is the only Generation I Pokémon that cannot be encountered in FireRed and LeafGreen, as well as the only Generation I Legendary or Mythical Pokémon that can be encountered in Emerald.
  • Mew is tied with Mewtwo for the most anime opening appearances of any Legendary or Mythical Pokémon, with seven in Japan.
  • 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.
  • 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).

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.

Origin

Bulbanews
Bulbanews has an article related to this subject:

Mew is similar to a vertebrate embryo. It shares many traits with cats. Its morphology is also vaguely similar to a jerboa, having large hind legs and a long skinny tail. It is believed by scientists to be the ancestor of all other Pokémon, which, along with its resemblance to an embryo, may be a reference to the recapitulation theory.

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).
