Mew (Japanese: ミュウ Myuu) is a Psychic-type Mythical and Legendary Pokémon, and is the last Pokémon in the Kanto Pokédex. Unlike any other Pokémon, it has the ability to learn every TM and HM except Draco Meteor.

Mew does not evolve into or from any other Pokémon; however, its DNA was cloned to create Mewtwo. It was the last Pokémon in the Pokédex until Generation II was released.

Appearance[edit | edit source]

Mew's appearance is that of a pink cat-like Pokémon with large feet, blue eyes, small pointed ears and a long, skinny tail. It is covered with a layer of fine pink hair, only visible with the aid of a microscope. It has short arms with three fingers on each paw.

Special abilities[edit | edit source]

Mew has the Ability Synchronize. This ability allows it to pass on any status problem, except Sleep and Frozen, to its opponent. This ability also raises the encounter rate of Pokémon with its same nature.

Additionally, it is said that Mew's DNA possesses the genetic composition of all existing Pokémon species, thus allowing it to use all known Pokémon techniques. Also, as shown in Lucario and the Mystery of Mew, it can change into any Pokémon using Transform. It changed into Meowth, Ho-Oh, Pidgeot, Pikachu, Aipom, Treecko, Taillow, Mime Jr., and Pichu.

Mew has also shown its ability to Levitate, create force fields, and change its form into any existing species of Pokémon. It is a very versatile and powerful Pokémon.

Appearances[edit | edit source]

In the anime[edit | edit source]

Mew as it appears in the movie.

Mew has been featured in several Pokémon movies, having a large role in most of them. Mew first appeared in the movie Mewtwo Strikes Back or Pokémon the First Movie, and fought with Mewtwo.

Mew's second movie appearance was in Lucario and the Mystery of Mew, where a different Mew from the first movie takes Meowth and Ash's Pikachu to the Tree of Beginning. Mew has also made appearances in other movies. Mew has been shown several times though in the TV series anime. Mew is in the opening theme of the Pokémon anime series, and it was featured in the TV Movie special Mewtwo Returns, during a flashback sequence of Mewtwo's. In the episode A Lean, Mean, Team Rocket Machine, it appears in one of Meowth's boss fantasies, along with Celebi, Phione, Manaphy, and Jirachi. It appears as a mirage Pokémon in the special The Mastermind of Mirage Pokémon.

In the manga[edit | edit source]

The first legendary Pokémon that Red saw was Mew; he tried to capture it, but due to his lack of experience he was unable to catch it. In the Emerald arc, Emerald used soil from Mew's birthplace to calm down all the rental Pokémon as Mew had the DNA of all Pokémon.

Super Smash Bros.[edit | edit source]

Mew has been a featured Pokémon in every one of the Super Smash Brothers games.

In original Super Smash Bros., a Mew will fly up without affecting the battlefield. In Super Smash Bros. Melee there is a 1 in 251 chance that a Poké Ball item contains Mew, and if this is the first time the player sees it, they will get an "achievement" after the battle. While it does not attack, the player receives 10,000 points after the battle is over. In Super Smash Bros. Brawl, it may even leave the player with a CD, a rare item that unlocks additional music in the game. Also, like in Melee, if it is the player's first time seeing Mew, they will get a "Notice" record from encountering him. This can be viewed later, along with the date and time the player received it.

Origins[edit | edit source]

Mew's name likely has to do with the onomatopoeia for a kitten's cry, referring to its cat-like appearance.

Trivia[edit | edit source]

  • Mew was the very first Pokémon trademark ever to be applied for and registered.
  • Although it can learn all moves, Mew can't learn powerful and rare moves such as Blast Burn, Judgment, and Freeze Shock, mainly because some moves are to be learned by a specific Pokémon, and Mew cannot learn them under a specific condition.
  • Mew's gender has been a subject of debate for some time. Officially, Mew is neither; however, in various media such as the films and television series, Mew is described as mother. That it gave birth to Mewtwo (as described in the video game series) isn't in a literal sense. Mewtwo was created from Mew's DNA; thus, Mew could be considered Mewtwo's "parent." In PokéPark Wii: Pikachu's Adventure, it is referred to as a "he".
  • Originally Mew was said to be the origin of all Pokémon, as it had every Pokémon's DNA, however if this is true it would had to have existed before the start of the universe, as it was supposedly created by Arceus, another Pokémon.
  • It is one of only two Pokémon able to learn Transform, the other being Ditto.
  • Based on scales, Mew has the longest tail in relation to its own body. This does not include snakelike Pokémon such as Ekans, Arbok, and Seviper.
  • Although having lower stats than Mewtwo, in the anime it is shown to be just as powerful, if not more powerful, than its clone counterpart.
  • In Japan, a pink Nintendo DS was released with Mew on it.
  • In Pokemon Red, Blue and Yellow you cannot complete the Pokedex without doing the Mew Glitch.
  • Mew was the first Pokemon introduced who is not legimately obtainable in the main series.
