Not to be confused with Legendary Pokémon.

Mythical Pokémon (幻のポケモン Maboroshi no Pokémon?) or Event-exclusive Pokémon, less commonly known as Mirage Pokémon, are a special group of Pokémon that are rarely seen by anyone in the world of Pokémon. Some are so rarely seen that people are unsure if they really exist, spurring scientists to do research. No Mythical Pokémon can be found under normal conditions; the only way to obtain these Pokémon is for the player to participate in "Pokémon events" commonly hosted by Nintendo around the world.

The First Generation

Mew

Mew

Mew, also known as the "Ancestor of all Pokémon" is considered the rarest of all Pokémon of all. Mew is also a kind, powerful, and rather cute cat-like being that in the movie Mewtwo Strikes Back', saves Ash and all the other trainers invited to Cinnibar Island.

In the games, Mew is only ever mentioned in journals on Cinnabar Island, where it was stated that Mew had given birth to Mewtwo.

Darkrai

Darkrai

Darkrai, the Pitch-Black Pokémon. He represents the New Moon, which symbolizes fear, helplessness and nightmares.

In the games, he can be found through an event in which the player receives a member card to the mysterious inn in Canalave City which is usually locked. On entry, the player is greeted by a man who says "Greetings [Name], we have a reservation for you. Right this way." and he puts you to sleep on the bed there. The player then appears in a dream in which you are on New Moon Island next to Full Moon Island. Here you will encounter Darkrai. When you interact with him, you'll battle him and you can catch him. After you catch or defeat him, you wake up and the inn man is gone. When you walk out, go to the Pokémon Center, and if you caught him in the dream, he should already be in your PC.

Darkrai's counter part is Cresselia which is a Legendary Pokémon.

Victini, the Victory Pokémon.

Although Victini is considered a Mythical Pokemon, Victini should not be confused with other Mythical Pokemon. All the other Mythical Pokemon are also Legendary Pokemon, therefore being much more rare and harder to find than Victini, and also meaning that there is more than one Victini existing in Unova, quite unlike Legendary Pokemon. Victini is also considered by many "a cheesy, obnoxious Pokemon that shouldn't be a Mythical Pokemon."
